My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐
There’s pretty much only one rule when you’re a guy.
Don’t be a douche.
Turns out, the fastest way to break that rule is to fall for your best friend’s sister.
Ava’s brilliant, sharp-tongued, gorgeous, and five years younger than me.
She’s the sexual equivalent of running with scissors. In a word, she’s dangerous. And completely off-limits.
Falling for her could ruin everything.
Yet I can’t seem to stop, even when her company is threatened by a lawsuit, and my promotion hinges on representing the opposing client—and winning.
I can’t see a way out of this mess that doesn’t end in a broken friendship, a broken heart, or a ruined career.
I may have broken the bro code when I fell for Ava. But do I have the balls to handle what comes next?
Ava is back at home to focus on running her father’s business since his health took a turn. She always had a thing for her brothers best friend but never acted on it. Barrett works as a lawyer in Chicago and is back in town for a visit. He has always liked Ava but cares about his friendship with Nick so much that even though he wants Ava, he tries to keep his distance.
Sounds like a classic best friends brother romance right? It was it was cute and had its sexy times. So you’re probably wondering why I only rated it 3 stars? I couldn’t rate it any higher because there was no relationship between these two, only sex. Well in my opinion.
I get that they have known each other since they were young, but they have grown up. Barrett moved to Chicago and was working as a lawyer and Ava just left her life in the city to come home and take over her father’s business. People change over time and I wish they would have spent more time getting to know each other as much as they did sucking face.
The sex scenes between them were great, the sexual tension was fun to read about. I also really enjoyed the banter between these two.
All in all, it wasn’t my favorite from this author, I just wanted so much from this one. I will be waiting for Mister Tonight in June.
I received an arc in exchange for an honest review.
