Loveswept / February 16, 2015 / $2.99 digital
Vivacious and successful, Ava Meyers is living her dream life, except for one thing: Ever since childhood, she’s been in love with her best friend . . . and she’s never admitted it. Back then, Sam Farrow was a damaged young man with a tough past. Now he’s supremely confident, super-sexy, and totally untouchable—until the night when Sam pretends to be Ava’s boyfriend to save her from some unwanted attention. In a moment of weakness, Ava finds out that a decades-long friendship is no match for blistering sexual chemistry.
After years of denying his own feelings, Sam finds that one amazing night with Ava isn’t enough to chase away all the pent-up fantasies. So he proposes they spend a few weeks driving each other wild, exhausting their every desire, and then return to their perfect platonic relationship like nothing ever happened. But Sam’s plan has one fatal flaw: the part where they give each other up. Because the more they let go of their inhibitions, the more they’re tempted to never go back.
For readers wondering about Mira Lyn Kelly’s move from category romance to longer series romance, all the favourites are still there. Dogs, Chicago, quirky, nuanced characters you can believe in—this is a series I will be revisiting.
First, it’s a linked series about a series of friends. This is the second in the Dare to Love series, but you can read this without reading the first one, if you want to, although there are some spoilers for the couple in the first book, since they’re close to the heroine of this one.
