Story Overview:
Screenwriter Noah Ashley has a few four-letter words for his agent when she suggests he improve his script by shadowing a PI. Still, because he's an artist dedicated to his craft and she knows where the bodies are buried, he agrees. Then he spends a little time with the gorgeous PI, and suddenly it seems like a really good plan. The PI doesn't seem to entirely love the idea, but Noah has never been afraid to go after what he wants.
PI Drew Rodriguez is used to people depending on him. He's the classic rock for his family. Responsible. Dependable. The classic rock would never succumb to the borderline sleazy temptation of friends with benefits, no matter how sexy that temptation is. Drew is looking for something enduring.
Despite Drew's misgivings, it's not long before they've got all the requisites for friends with benefits going. Friendly, good conversation? Check. Fun times in and out of bed? Check. Hot, electrolyte-sapping sex? Double check. Falling in love? Yeah. About that....

My Review:
Overall: 4.75
Performance: 4.25
Story: 5.0

Why oh why have I let this book languish in my TBR when it was so good? I just had no idea just how good it was going to be. Such a gift sitting and waiting for me to read at just the right time. 

OMG, just like the first book in this series, I ADORED this book. It was so good, so snarky, so much just pure fun to read and enjoy. Honestly, read that story description...it has this book nailed. It was so good. 

What isn't mentioned in that description is that Noah's agent is also his ex-wife. I loved their relationship so much. They're friends...in fact, Noah has stayed friends with almost all his ex's, except his most recent one that nobody else liked anyway. But he's a casual guy, more about right now than long-term, and his hookups respect that about him. He also lives his life in Hollywood. That world kind of prevents anything lasting to have a chance...to last. 

Drew is the opposite. He's all about commitment. He just hasn't found the right guy for that. His life is a bit chaotic. He's former military who now works as a PI. He has a younger brother that he's basically raised because dad was in prison...and suddenly both those guys are back in Drew's life throughout this book. (Drew is used to be a loner...having his not necessarily welcome family living with him is throwing a wrench in everything about his life.) He's the solid guy that everyone counts on for stability. He doesn't deal with change or chaos well. Ever since Noah showed up, he's had nothing but all that, and Drew doesn't have any patience for that, so he shuts Noah down at every turn. 

I loved the conflict between them at the beginning of the book. It built up some fantastic sexual chemistry between them. I listened to this one on audio and loved every single minute of listening to it. But I just ordered it in print, because this is a new favorite that belongs on my keeper shelf. LOVED IT and HIGHLY recommend it.
