This book getting anything above 3 stars is the reason why I don‘t trust people anymore!


I am a sucker for the friends-to-lovers-trope and I admit to liking the secret child trope but this book plainly sucked.

Not only was the heroine an annoying and selfish bitch but the story also didn‘t have any flow. It just jumped from one major event to the next.

Her hang-ups about starting a real relationship with Dean were never explained. I‘m sorry, but what the heck was her problem?! He never acted like h

Meh, it was okay, maybe less than okay because it was too short and everything was predictable. I hated both characters because they were so immature and annoying so i just skipped through the pages wanting to finish it as soon as possible and get it over with.

She kept a secret from me that could bring us back together.
Her secret is also what had torn us apart.
I just didn't know it.

Love Dean and Kat♡ This book sucked me in . Beautiful intense funny emotional forbidden. Can't wait for the next one . excellent

I wanted to explain my rating.

This wasn't the worst book ever, but I felt like everything was skimmed over - nothing developed.

I wasn't invested in any of the characters. I didn't believe any of the relationships. The storyline wasn't anything new, but could've been really interesting if things had been fleshed out and not just dropped onto the page.

I know I sound harsh, I just wanted more.

4.5 stars!

If you like sweet, sexy, swoon worthy hockey players, then Dean Crawford is the man for you. He absolutely melts the pages of Jillian Quinn’s new book, More than Friends. Loyal, fun-loving, caring, and with a bit of alpha, he is what dream men are made of.

Dean is a star college hockey player with dreams of going to the NHL. When he finds out that is hockey idol’s daughter Kat, is not only attending t

Dirty Dean Crawford has a reputation around campus. He's a star on the ice and a player off the ice, but from the first time he met Kat, he knew that she wasn't just another puck bunny.

Their connection was apparent right from the get-go, but Dean was determined to keep Kat in the friends zone. He liked spending time with her so much, that he didn't want to risk losing her by taking her to bed. It wasn't that there wasn't attraction between them. There was tons of sexual tension brewing between t

I wasn’t supposed to fall for my best friend….

Friends to lovers is one of my most favorite type of stories. There's just something so sweet and intimate about best friends falling for each other. I can't get enough and Jillian Quinn sure did bring on the cuteness in More than Friends.

Dean Crawford? ULTIMATE book boyfriend. I love all of Jillian's male characters but Dean might have given them all a run for their money. He's sexy as sin, he's sweet as can be and he has a mischief side that is a

Every time I start a Jillian Quinn book I get that warm feeling in my chest like the one you get when you get a hug from someone you love( if you like hugs that is) and I got that feeling reading about Dean and Kat! I Love Dean and Kat! They are so close and they are so in love with each other. I love the friends to lovers trope and this one was so great!

Dean and Kitten

Meeting a fan is always fun especially when they are fans of your dad.... Who'd have thought they'd become your best friend. When Kat met Dean they had an instant connection but these two remained platonic for months. Then slowly a kiss her and touch there and it grew. He fell for her before she realized she fell too. She wanted him to take her v-card and he had to compartmentalize his feelings because he was friends with her twin brothers.

These two held off on their feelings unt

The moment Kat and Dean met they became fast friends, having hockey in common it brought them together and bonded them, gave them something to hold onto. But then one night things took an interesting, an unexpected, turn when Kat asked Dean to be her first, at first he wanted to tell her no, because he was afraid it would ruin all that they built between one another... but then the thought of her sharing it with someone else damn near killed him. They tried really hard to not let it change thing ...more

New adult sports romance that mixes everything from friends to lovers to teammates’ off-limits sister to second chances

More than Friends is a new adult sports romance that mixes a little of everything from friends to lovers to teammates’ off-limits sister to second chances. The book has a nice mix of drama and sweetness that is sure to make this an enjoyable, quick, and easy to read book for most NA romance fans. I won’t say much more as I don’t want to spoil the story.

** Thanks to the author for providing me with an eARC of this book via booksprout**

As always I ended up enjoying Jillian’s book. She does a great job at linking her previous books to her recent book. You can guarantee that you will see a few characters from her other books pop up in the one you are reading and I love that. I always look out for when they show up.

Another thing I like about her books is you can always expect a happy ending. I like my HEA so that is a huge plus for me.

Dean and Kat!
Dean's love of hockey and fandom of her Kat's legendary Hockey father may be what brings him to meeting Kat one day as she comes off the ice, but every day after it is something else entirely!
Quickly these two form a bond that goes beyond best friends, always toeing that fine line, but Kat's possessive brothers are around to keep that from happening... or are they?

There's always a reason--sometimes they're even good ones--but you still want to strangle her and the guy for being so stubborn. Meet Kat and Dean. They don't want to ruin their friendship.

Best Friends...now that’s an interesting statement. Can a man have a best friend who is a woman....yes, why not. That is what talented hockey play Dean Crawford wonders.
Watching Kat Baldwin play is mesmerising. She has the speed of her father, top player Nick Baldwin, his hero. He just has to meet her. He knows her brothers Duke, Austin and twins Theo and Tucker who are oh so mega big time protective of her. It was good

Predictable with no development

This story has no development. It started out fine enough with the meeting of Kat & Dean and showing how their friendship has formed during their time in college. Then it gets to when they cross the proverbial line & they can't sort out their feelings so they stay just friends. *Spoiler alert* Then surprise not so surprise ( because they never used a damn condom), the two are about to graduate college & she comes up pregnant. But does she let him know? Of course no

Kat’s father is a retired professional hockey player and her older brothers are both in the NHL, so it’s no wonder she knows hockey and plays it well. When she meets Dean, a member of her university's hockey team, she thinks he’s just another fanboy of her father's and keeps him strictly in the friend zone. Since he's friends and teammates with her younger brothers, it’s not like Dean can act on his growing feelings for Kat. But feelings on both sides grow until fate makes it impossible for them ...more

Another fabulous book by Ms. Quinn. It didn’t take long before the action got started on the ice and Dean was watching Kat fighting for the puck and he would be fighting to get to know her before the night was over. As he stood there waiting for her to walk by to get her attention, he managed to talk her into it. Over the years they were best friends but it became more than friends, she wanted more and Dean was willing. But after graduation they were separating and going in opposite directions b ...more

When Dean find’s out his hockey hero’s daughter is attending college with him he knows that he has to meet her. Once he meets her who her father is doesn’t matter as they have an immediate connection and they become best friends.

Kat has had experience with people only wanting to be close to her because of her hockey family but there is something different about Dean. She wants to be more than friends but things are complicated by the fact that her brothers are his teammates.

A new standalone from Jillian Quinn that was just impossible to put down. I absolutely love sports romance novels, especially if they are about hockey. Add in that the majority of the book is based in a college setting, and I was as excited as if it were Christmas morning.
Jillian certainly knows how to write a compelling yet believable story. This best friends to lovers book is different in that Dean & Kat easily expressed their love to each other, but of course were both hesitant to take their

Even though I felt it was short (this is just my opinion cos I could of read about these two for days), it was jam packed with everything you need.
It was fun, serious and so sexy.
One of my favourite genres is friends to lovers and this book did not disappoint.

This is a very cute first love story about best friends Dean and Kat.
Jillian has really captured the uncertainty of young feelings, falling in love with your best friend and trying to have it all.
Dean is an absolute sweetheart who frankly, had the patience of a saint when dealing with Kat's more uncertain feelings.
Kat for me was more of a challenge to understand. Her hesitation in committing to a relationship
