Old friends turned lovers… Maybe not….

Amber and her long time beau recently broke up and she was completely blinded sided. So when an old friend needs a place to live for a couple of months it could be a nice distraction from her broken heart. Did I mention she has had a crush on said friend? What could possibly go wrong?

First off, I love Channing right away. There was no “I warmed up to him,” nope I was on fire the moment his presents was in the book.

Amber, I mean what is she, some kind of saint? I kid, I kid, but seriously she was sweet.

You know it wouldn’t be a true Penelope Ward book if there wasn’t some twist.

All in all, I truly enjoyed this book, even the parts where I wasn’t sure what would happen.

4 Stars!

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

Growing up, the three of us were friends.
He was the nerd.
I was the playboy.
She was the beauty.

Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits.

He lied.

I went off to college, and he got the girl.
Amber never knew how I felt.
They were together for years—before he broke her heart.

Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch.
When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.

Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men.
One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings.
Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity.
Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message.
She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend—me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.)

Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel.
When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she was stunned to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.
