Lovers to friends to lovers…could it get any more complicated?

One thing Carissa Brandt knows: spontaneity always get her in trouble. Still, she’s gone and jumped head first into an impulsive summer renovation project with her fingers crossed. When her contractor turns out to be a cheat, it seems her only lifeline is the proffered hand of Josh Hudson—the sexy Marine who left her aching for more than their single night together three years ago.

Josh has two hard and fast rules: never mix business with pleasure and don’t look twice at women his friends have dated, much less loved. It makes life in a small town simple—or it would, if he wasn’t harboring a secret with the potential to destroy his good name and the reputation of a woman he can’t get out of his head.

When Carissa finds herself in a bind, Josh’s integrity—both personal and professional—won’t let her fail. Will working together finally extinguish the attraction lingering between them? Or will the smoldering embers of their passionate rendezvous ignite all over again and set aflame the friendships they cherish the most?

Warning: This book contains a hella-sexy, inked up hero, a spunky heroine who isn’t afraid to speak her mind, smokin’ hot sex, and enough swearing to make your momma blush. For readers 18+.

Customer Reviews

It was okay

It was a nice read but completely predictable.

Thoroughly enjoyed it!

Really enjoyed the characters in this book. The author has created an interesting dynamic that makes the reader question how they would handle a similar situation. The ending is a bit abrupt and one particular part of the storyline seems to resolve itself way too easily but overall it was a fun read and I immediately downloaded the next book in the series when I finished it. I think that's a pretty good recommendation. And in response to earlier negative reviews....duh, of course it was predictable it's a romance novel! They are all predictable's a function of the genre! And to the other negative review, you should read an entire book and gain an understanding of the characters and their motivation before critiquing something. You should also not give a "spoiler alert" that isn't even accurate, which if you read the whole book you would know.


WOW! Just WOW! I loved this book. One of the best 'I want you I can’t have you' stories I’ve read in a long time. HOT HOT HOT! I will be reading ALL in this series. I secretly cannot wait for Tony’s story or Reed’s story. GET THIS BOOK. It’s really good.
