Friends with benefits was never the plan…
Melanie Jacobs is in trouble. With three jobs—including running her ranch—and dwindling funds, she’s exhausted. Not to mention desperately trying to hide a secret. Unfortunately, her best friend Colton Freeze knows all too well that’s something is going on, and he won’t give up until he knows exactly what he needs to fix.
Then Colton learns the truth—that Melanie’s future happiness rests in the fickle hands of fate, and her chances for having a family are shrinking with every passing day. Her only comfort is Colton, but when a heated argument between them turns into an even hotter kiss, the boundaries of their friendship are erased, leaving only a scorching-hot hunger for more.
Every kiss—every touch—is a stolen pleasure. But will their new friends-with-sexy-benefits arrangement bring them closer together, or destroy everything they once shared?
The author's engaging, humorist way of writing pulled me right into the middle of this beautifully flowing story, and I kept reading until the wee hours of the morning and 'the end'.
Melanie and Colton have chemistry off the charts. They are fun, energetic, best friends since preschool, until that one day when everything changes, and the attraction hits them, hard.
The storyline is fresh and original. I adored the whole gang of the small town, not to mention the big family of the Freeze. They are caring, charismatic, meddling, and made me laugh out loud. And while the characters are attractive and successful, they are still humans with flaws, and who make mistakes.
Melanie and Colton are scorching hot together, the heat level is high, but it is very well written, fits the story, and helps the plot to move along. Their tempers flare, the sheet are burning, they laugh, take care of each other, and Colton's alpha male side has a true match with Melanie, who knows him inside out, and takes no crap from him.
I truly enjoyed this story, it is entertaining, the romance while scorching hot, also adoring and sweet. The family, the friends, the town folks, are all pure enjoyment
