Kayla’s best friend Marcus returned from Kuwait just in time to celebrate her fortieth birthday. She never expected to cry about it or let him comfort her with sex, but that’s what happened. The next day Marcus confessed the feelings he’d had for her all along and then gave her the best lovemaking of her life. After spending her week-long “staycation” in bed with Marcus, c ...more

This is a very short quickie - no, I'm not being redundant because this book has only 10 pages in PDF format, which is too few even for a quickie - so I didn't have high expectations about it. I won't write a plot summary here because the book description pretty much says it all - this book has only 10 pages, remember?

Well, have I enjoyed this read? Hmmm, it was OK. The fact that Marcus and Kayla had been friends for over 20 years before falling into bed was a plus, because there was really no p

Recommends it for: Fans of the erotic freebie
This was a hot, short story (only 10 pages) available for free at the Ellora's Cave website. Not much can be told in 10 pages, but this little quickie had lots of potential. It's a friends-to-lovers story about a newspaper columnist (Kayla) who finally sleeps with her long-time (15 years) friend Marcus on her 40th birthday, and is blown away by how amazing it was. Marcus had been in Kuwait for 8 long months, and Kayla realized just how much she missed him, and they make up for it with a week in ...more

Without prelude or foreplay Ashlyn Chase plunges the reader into her steaming sexual spoof and doesn’t let them up for air. Kayla is celebrating her fortieth birthday and takes a leap (or maybe dive would be a more appropriate word) of faith and takes her best friend, Marcus, to bed. When the fog of celebration clears and the change in their relationship reveals itself, thoughts of possibly losing a best friend loom largely before her eyes. Love stories take many forms and lead in unexpected dir ...more

2.5 normally when I give half stars I rate the full next star to give the author the benefit of doubt. I'm not doing so here not because I didn't like this short but because I didn't feel it landed in the appropriate genre. this is absolutely not erotica. its a very sweet short about two friends who realize they're in love after all those years and a crazy night in bed. but the author doesn't put near as much effort into sex scenes as the love scenes so they left me cold and therefore the low ra ...more
so another book i downloaded on my nook without reading the synopsis and not paying attention to the cover. geez, if i had paid attention to the cover i would have known it was dirty. uh hello naughty nooners printed across the bottom of the cover should have been a clue, but no im slow. hey it was free so what the heck am i complaing about, right? very graphic. thank goodness it was short. i ended up laughing at the end with the very last line spoken by marcus.

This was a short, ok freebie. I liked the story line but didn't feel the characters very well. There wasn't a good amount of emotion, there was some steaminess and a little background. Not much meat and basically just one 'scene'. It didn't really keep me interested but it was written well. I don't think I'll end up reading this book again. Just not into it that well. Good Luck

I read this book because it had my name in it and it was free on my nook. It was way more in detail that what I normally read and I'm not a fan of how detailed it was. I do like the main story line of friends becoming more and getting engaged but I didn't really need to know all the stuff inbtween.

I thought it was a cute hot, friends to lovers story. This is more of a 3.5 really. I wish it had been a little longer but it is a naughty nooner so, I guess it's supposed to be super short. :) I loved how determined Marcus was to have kayla. It was very sexy!

Kayla's bestfriend, Marcus, comes home just in time for her 40th birthday and gives her the gift that she will never forget as well as tells her that he wants a lasting relationship with her. Does Kayla feel the same?
Short and sweet.

what i thought was a hot little PWP turned out to have some substance in the end with an adorable ending. i hope the author decides to revisit Kayla and Marcus some day.
