Book 5, Shillings Agency
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Navy SEAL Steven Thomas has only ever been able to count on three things: waking up in the morning, going to sleep sometime during the night, and Lauren Brixton. She's been his best friend since grade school, and what they have is the only relationship he's managed not to ruin.
Until one drunken night puts that all in jeopardy.
Lauren's watched Steven flit from one-night stand to one-night stand, seemingly not interested in something more. So when the long-ignored attraction between the two of them blows up in their faces, she does the only thing she can-she pretends she doesn't want him. But all's fair in love and war, and Steven's not about to lose the only person in his life who matters...

Say You're Mine
Say You're Mine was a great look at best friends to lovers. Lauren and Steven know each other so well, but they can't seem to see the attraction that is right in front of both their noses. But a small lie could really throw a wrench into them finally finding each other.
While I applaud Steven's hard stance on lies, for once I think the lie was almost justified and understandable. You won't hear me say that very often - and he overreacted quite a bit. But it was nice to see it addressed instead of just brushed under the rug as no big deal (which is a huge pet peeve of mine).
Both characters were a lot of fun. Laruen is sweet and sassy, while Steven was super protective but was still a bit of a softy. I loved the way the were together - anything and everything they did just screamed I love you and I trust you. There really were the best of friends and perfect for each other.

This is book # 5 in the Shillings Agency series. This book can easily be read as a standalone novel. It is however, pretty nice when you can connect the characters of this book to their story too.
Steven and Lauren have been best friends for a long time. Lauren has been in love with him probably just as long. Steven always goes from one woman to the next. Until one night, Lauren kisses him.
Everything changed when their lips met. Now, it is hard to be in the same room and not touch. But changing the best friend dynamic is not so easy to do. They both have a lot to lose if they cannot work it out.
I loved this story! These characters base their relationship on honesty. They respect each other and want a future together. I found it refreshing and the sexy times are hot!
