This is my favorite Kendall Ryan book to date! It was exactly what I needed - light, funny, and sexy!
Smith and Evie's story is sweet and engaging. I highly recommend it!

Here's the breakdown: Smith is Evie's brother's best friend. They grew up together and have a great friendship. Her brother, Cullen, has recently taken over the family business and brings on Evie and Smith to assist him. In an attempt to have a "re-do" of her first time, Evie devises a plan with her BFF to finally seduce Smith. Will these two finally act on their feelings for one another? Will their desire ruin their friendship? You'll have to read it to find out.

What I loved: This book brought back some of the totally crazy memories my bestie and I shared during and after college. Man, the good ole days! Evie is super cute. She's young and wacky, but I loved her spirit and tenacity.

Smith. Okay, his name alone is the best. Smith Hamilton. Maybe it's me being quirky, but that's a kickass romance hero name. Plus he's a character with layers. He's not your typical hot-guy alpha asshole. He has a past and depth of character that's very endearing.

The history and relationship development was also key. It didn't feel rushed or trivial. The writing is spot on and really hit the mark.

Overall, a great friends to lovers / brother's best friend type romance. I definitely recommend it.
