Dear Hayley,

I'm assuming you're still hungover, so I'll make this brief.

Last night, you slipped under my sheets (without my permission), and we almost had sex. I got the hell out of the bed once I realized it was you, and I took you home.

That's the story.

The end.

Period. 

Just in case you've forgotten, you're my best friend's little sister. We will never be anything more. (We can't be anything more.) Our previous friendship is still unresolved--or "over" in your terms, so I'd prefer if we worked on becoming 'just friends' again since you're in town.

Nonetheless, I'm not a man who leaves questions unanswered--even the drunken ones, so to properly close our inappropriate conversation:

1) Yes, I liked the way your lips felt against mine when you were on top of me.
2) Yes, I do "prefer" rough sex, but I'm pretty sure I wasn't rough with you.
3) No, I had no idea you were still a virgin...

This message never happened,
Corey 

Maria’s Review

3.5 stars
➦I don’t think I’ve minded this book as much as some people did. I actually kind of enjoyed it. It was a quick read and the heroine, despite being a bit immature, didn’t really get on my nerves. 😀

➦So. The BESTEST part of this book was the overprotective asshole of a brother. It was so over the top that I just loved it lol. 

➦I know, go figure. But it so tickled my pickle. I really really like a murderous brother in a suit who might or might not have a 45 and a shovel. And people for.. um, “clean up”
I know, totes ridiculous. So sue me.

➦There’s also the part where these two main characters were childhood best friends and the flashbacks were a nice addition to the story. However, I feel like Whitney G. needs to dig a bit deeper with the character development. While I like her somewhat short novels, and she seems to pull it off most times, I find myself wishing for more. There’s never quite enough time to completely fall in love with the characters. #bloggerproblems

➦If you like secret relationship tropes, “brother’s best friend” and “childhood friends/loved you since childhood” romances then do give this one a shot! Overall, an enjoyable read.


Jenny’s Review

I love a story that goes from childhood crush to lovers. Throw in a Best friends little sister. Add a lot of history and bam you get Whitney G’s latest book.

I liked a lot about this book. Yet at the same time so much bugged me. Definitely wasn’t the writing, as always I enjoyed her writing style.

Hayley…… where to start. She was my downfall with this book. Her immaturity, her worst. The way she presented herself in a working environment. She came across as a spoiled brat, she got everything and gave little appreciation back. But her love for Corey, I enjoyed.

Corey.. What Can I say about this hunk of a man. My only issue with Corey was how he didn’t stand up for Hayley with Jonathon. He went after what he wanted until he didn’t. He’s smart, he’s hot, he’s all about pleasing the one he loves until he is told not to. I loved how he didn’t stop or give up in the end.

The sexual chemistry was Steamy. It was hot. In the end I overall enjoyed this one, definitely not a favorite of mine from this author but I did enjoy. I can’t wait to get more from Whitney G!!
