He’s the man she loves to hate . . .
Olivia Kane’s wedding day has just imploded spectacularly. Shots lined up at the bar? Bring it. Hot stranger on the hook? Come on down. What this party does not need is six feet and change of home-grown Texas cockiness in the form of her brother’s best friend, the man who broke her heart seven years ago.
She’s the woman he has to have . . .
Flynn Cross won’t stand by while Liv finds sensual solace in the arms of a stranger, not when his own hard-for-her body is more than up for the task. For one week, he’ll make her honeymoon-for-one a sizzling party for two.
Breaking the rules, one steamy night at a time . . .
But the taboo they’re breaking is only the beginning . . . and Flynn’s part in Liv’s wedding debacle could bring about their end.
One of my favorite tropes is friends to lovers, and although the friendship between Flynn and Liv fell apart seven years ago, this story still fits that trope because they were best friends once upon a time. It's just harsh life got in the way of them becoming more...something that Flynn kept Liv from ever knowing about or else there is no way she would have stayed away from him.
I like the way that the author started the book...with the emails between Liv and Flynn back before everything fell apart and he was in Iraq as a soldier. It shows just how close they were before he shut her out...with no explanation or anything. Now, it's 7 years later and Liv just discovered her groom balls-deep in one of her bridesmaids right before the wedding. Liv is upset and looking for hot, sizzling sex. In comes Flynn to the rescue, although there's no way Liv wants to open up her heart or body to getting hurt by him again. But Flynn has wasted too much time already. He's not taking no for an answer.
There is so much heat and contention between these two characters, it made this for an awesome read. I loved the smexiness they exuded throughout the entire book. It really sizzled. It was fun and sexy and from page one was completely entertaining and engrossing. I did not want to put it down. The wonderful setting helped in making this a great book to read, too.
I've loved this entire series. All the books have been great. I highly recommend this one....AND the others. You can read any one of them as a stand-alone, but I promise you once you read one of them, you will want them all.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
