He was the fuel for all my schoolgirl fantasies…

My brother’s best friend, Duncan Murphy is the ruler I measure all other men against. But after seeing all he has to offer, I realize I’ve been using a ruler when I should have been using a yardstick.

Five years ago when I climbed into his bed in the middle of the night, I finally got him to see me as more than his best f

Steamy short read. Not sure about some of the language.

This book was not bad for the type of book it was, but I didn’t really like how the Hero explained things in one part. The Hero Duncan is a top Orthopedic Surgeon at a major hospital in New York City. His Best Friend is the brother of the Heroine Sara, who is now a ballet dancer in New York.

They both had a crush on each other growing up, though he was a few years older than her. When she crawled into bed with him when she was in college an

This quick read was deliciously fun and steamy. A brother's best friend story that offers heat, heart and charming touches of humor. A perfect read for when you're short on time, suffering a book hangover, or just want something light but spicy. Just delightful! I am posting a truthful review of my own accord.

Not Sure

I’m not quite sure how I feel about this read. Ok, I get Sara ran because she thought Duncan was playing her and I get Duncan thought she was repulsed by him but I didn’t understand his behaviour after. Throughout the book he says multiple times he’s not the man for her and he can’t give her what she wants and needs. He mentions having casual sex with experienced women, how he hasn’t been a saint yet he decorated his apartment with her in mind and bought her an engagement ring. O

This is a fast-paced off the charts steamy read between Sara and her brother’s best friend Duncan. Sara had a crush on him when they were younger but now, she is older and understands exactly what Duncan wants. Will she be able to convince him she is just the woman he needs? Fast-paced read with amazing chemistry and an entertaining story. I really liked it.

A quick, exciting read that will keep your toes curled as Sara and Duncan sizzle as they burn with love and long pent up desire. Their passion propels them into a brilliant happily ever after. Good and entertaining. Not to be missed.

Duncan & Sara are afforded a second chance to explore their chemistry under the unlikeliest of circumstances.

This is a quick, steamy read with a bit of humor. It's a good pick-me-up after a heavy read, or if you're just looking for a quick escape. The epilogues were pretty good, too.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

A great quick read. I loved the characters and how the came together even after time apart. Looking forward to more from Lark Avery!

Duncan is best friends with Sara's older brother. That should make what she is feeling for him off limits....only it doesn't. Hidden feelings along with little not-so-subtle hints are always there. One night, Sara decides to act out on her feelings, climbs into bed with Duncan. Only the response from Duncan is not what she was anticipating. No this one is humiliating and hurtful.

Five years have since past. Duncan is on of the top surgeons in the hospital. A call from his best friend from the pas

Hmmmm. The first couple of pages just about mentioned every curse word. If they were used appropriately, it wouldn't have been a big deal. Then in a blink of an eye he practically rapes her. Then it goes downhill. This is a novella that speeds through a story where there is not a real plot.

The whole story reads like a prepubescent wet dream. Then the biggest cliche is spoken. “Sara, are you a virgin?” I was thankful this was a short short story.

I am giving this novella two stars be

Short, fast, hard.

A couple things wrong with this story. First, it's too short. Desire that's been burning as long as theirs, I feel, needs a bit more investment in the characters to do that level of need justice. Its extremely well written with no grammar errors and maybe one typo, the editing exceeded my standards in that way. I couldn't quite get to know the characters so I didnt have much emotional investment in them getting to it. Also if you're going to promise a bossy dominant I'd like to

🌟4 Stars🌟-Great (had my attention and I enjoyed it),

Standalone novella; dual POV; 17+readers; HEA;

If you want something quick to read, this is a book for you. A hot and fast paced read. Best friends sister/brother's best friend romance. She's crushed on him forever and always made sure he's known. But he has an eclectic taste. She's too innocent and young but he wants her so bad. He finally gives in but she's not ready and is scared away. Now she's older and is ready to finally take what he offe

Sara and Duncan’s story in Lark Avery’s Bossy Surgeon is disturbingly hot - and I mean that in the very best of ways. This superbly written story is also pure fun and with just the right degree of romance. One word description: yum. But for the fact that I’m literally dictating this review to my husband from my hospital bed I could go on and on with praises. The book definitely deserves it. Since I can’t do that I will simply note that the book is most definitely one to read, and it is easy to h ...more

This book was... okay. It had plenty of heat, but very little heart or depth. I was kinda hoping for a medical romance, but the fact that the guy was a surgeon was totally immaterial. He could just as well have been a plumber or architect.

On the plus side? It's a verrrrry fast read. Two and a half stars, rounded up to three.

I've just added lark Avery to my buy list

I just started reading Ms Averys books. I'm a short read insta love girl who loves Alexa Riley but Ms Avery just won my approval on a Jayne Krentz Level. 3rd book of hers for me and I've been won over. If you love insta love, happily ever after with a real story behind it dont pass this one up! I'm happily impressed!

I really enjoyed reading this book. It's well written and entertaining, the story-line is well-paced and sometimes really hot and steaming. I read through the book without a break up to the end.

Sara and Duncan have cut out a number of issues in their sparkling journey to the HEA.

So, go ahead, grab this book, grab a cup of coffee and let the story give You a relaxed reading time.

Short, sweet and hot

Duncan and Sara stay apart because of confusion and misunderstanding. But when they come together again they waste no time in going for what they both wanted. I'd recommend.

I guess you never forget your first crush, even if he's your brother's best friend.. A surgeon sure sounds yummy, even if he was hooking up with other women when he knew that she was saving herself for him and only him..

Duncan and Sara have had a thing for each other for decades but a misunderstanding drove them apart but not from each others mind, now serendipity has brought them back together and they are both determined to make it count. A quick steamy read.
