Very Interesting

This was a very interesting story. I loved the characters and i can't wait to read the other characters stories. They can only get better. I love this author's works
First time reading this author and loved it. Freddie and Lex were a cute couple. Freddie went through it with her crazy ex and crazy father-in-law to be. Falling in love with her brother’s best friend (Lex), didn’t help.

4/5 stars

I only took one star away, due to a slightly rushed ending. Otherwise...
Great writing, great editing, great characters, great humor, great sex.
Love this author.

I liked this so much!

Secret relationship/brother’s best friend is not one of my favorite tropes. But this book just worked for me. Freddie and Lex were both so much fun - Freddie was a medical examiner (I love heroines with unique jobs) and was bubbly and fun despite her macabre profession. Lex was a video game designer (but also a billionaire - inherited wealth). I genuinely do not like billionaire books. The men always are jackasses and their sources of wealth are almost entirely unrealistic.
Feb 27, 2019 rated it it was ok

First off the picture of a blond man on the cover- Lex has dark hair
The title obsession is misleading- yes Lex has liked her for a while but it’s hardly an obsession
The book was unbalanced. 90 percent of the book is about whether or not they’ll date and only 10% about the real relationship. That part was really rushed.
Lastly the whole thing with Lex’s dad was too cliché. It would have been more interesting if their relationship was the opportunity for his dad to get closer to him.

Title was so wrong but story was cute!!!

This book's title was so wrong and so unfit for this turn of events, but the story was cute, solid and refreshing.
Freddie was so cute, so vibrant and so down to earth to Deans cool, placidly, cold (really room temperature) were so made for each other and so right between them. Ari was a trip and Wesley needed a good beat down. Nicola, was not nessecerily a huge piece in this story.
Can't wait to read about the others and their own successful conquest!!!

I would like to say I really liked it. I really liked the concept, but the execution was a little off. Some of the mistakes that were made were easily fixable, but they both acted like children at times and went for the path of least resistance, which only prolonged and postponed their suffering. Some stuff if they went ahead and dealt with, would have been fine, like Wesley. Overall I liked it, I just didn’t love it.

Friendship and Love

I like how this entertaining story takes you into the lives of Lex and Freddy. The author navigates their relationship with humor, a little drama a few roadblocks and their beginning love. The other characters, adversaries, family and friends are interwoven into the storyline to create an irresistible read.

It has potential

I love the characters, especially Lex. He is one of my dream heroes - silent but when he talks it is worth it. And the story line was well thought out. But yet the writing was not engaging. I read but I did not feel like I was sucked in. It felt more like reading dictation notes.

If the heroine was a doctor and smart why did she behave like an elementary student? Very childish. What could’ve developed to a better involved story line was skipped over then it jumped to the end Don’t waste your time

Great Read

I've been a fan of Linda Verji for some time now. Each book is unique, hot, and keeps my attention. This may be my favorite of the bunch yet. I loved each character. Even crazy Wesley (haha).

Love This!

Read this on my birthday. What a gift! If I could wish upon a star or God would grant me one prayer, it would be to have a real life Lex with the chemistry and bond he shares with Freddie. Great read!

Loved it

Like I said I have yet to find a book that you write that I have not been thrilled with but I would like to see more of lex and Alexandria please especially his crazy family.

Great start of the series. Lex wanted and got his dream girl in spite of her overprotective brother. I enjoyed the relationship between the group of friends. Her ex, Can we say crazy as hell. Waiting for the next installment.

Love 💘 it!

Big brothers get on my ever loving mind. Ari fits the bill. I don't see how Freddie dealt with it. Ari made me want to pull my hair. I can't wait when his story is released.

I wonder who could have been the father of the baby had Freddie gotten pregnant. She jumped dick just like blokes which I thought was amazing

Really cute! Surprised by how engulfed in the novel I got. Good bit of drama but still lighthearted.

I was kinda of annoyed with the characters. Freddy was 29 but treated like a child by her family and at times she even acted like it .smh

Story was good but too rushed. The title didn’t fit the story the man on the cover did t match the description. Other than that it was a fun good story. Hope the next one isn’t as rushed.

I love looking at them, smelling them, reading them, carrying them, writing them.

I have an addiction. Someone help me.

I'll read anything from historical romance to fast action thrillers, gritty urban to fantasy.

When it comes to writing, I'm more of a romance gal. Expect admirable heroines, swoony gentlemen and some r-rated fun.
