Synopsis

Avery Yeung’s biological clock just went off early. Thanks to her family’s medical history, she’s running out of time to get knocked up. And the only guy within donating distance? Her overprotective—and irritatingly hot—best friend. So clearly she needs an anonymous donor…

Anonymous donor? Over Sheriff Drew Flannery’s dead body. While daddyhood will never be in the cards for a man with his past, Drew won’t let Avery shop for a “popsicle pop.” He’ll do what’s right for his best friend by doing his best friend. But only if they do it properly.

But there’s nothing “proper” about it. Between the bed, the kitchen counter, and against his squad car, Avery and Drew are having the hottest sex ever. They can’t get enough of it—or each other. And without knowing it, they’ve crossed the one line that could ruin their friendship forever…

 

 

Review

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via TRSOR and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s blog tour promotions.

The best-friend-turned-lovers trope is one that has been used over and over since romance novels were invented. However, it never gets old. No matter how many times you re-write it, put your own spin, deconstruct it and all that, there’s always something good that can be said when you read about two people who’ve been the best of friends their whole life finally fall in love with each other.

I greatly enjoyed this book because both the hero and the heroine already had suppressed romantic feelings for each other. It wasn’t like they just woke up one day after so many years and BAM! They’re already in love. No. Their love was truly a long time coming.

Katee Robert is truly a reliable name when it comes to romance. Like all her books, Falling For His Best Friend is a light, feel-good story that shows the pains and the beauty of falling in love and standing up for it. It’s a book that will surely provide great entertainment as well as a few light moments. The secondary characters are also people you may already be familiar with. If you’re looking for a nice love story with steamy scenes and sweet romantic touches, well, this book will be right up your alley.

 

 

Excerpt

She ran her fingers over his chest, enjoying his well-defined pecs. Drew was in killer shape, and his upper body could seriously fill out a T-shirt. She leaned down and flicked his nipple with her tongue, before moving further south.

His breathing changed as she hovered over the waistband of his sweats, saving her from the debate of if she was really going to make a move on him while he was sleeping. “You going to stop there?”

She looked up to find his eyes open. Stop? Not a chance. “I’m considering.”

“Keep it up and I might have to jump you instead.”

No way was she missing this chance. “Shh. It’s my turn to drive things tonight.”

She hooked his waistband and pulled it down over his hips, the sight of his cock temporarily stealing her breath.

She’d seen him naked a few times, but the impact only seemed to be growing instead of decreasing like it should. Nothing about this was going like it should, from the sex to the forbidden emotions welling up in her chest. She didn’t want to think about that, though.

Not now, maybe not ever.

The only thing she did want occupying her headspace was how good it felt to touch him. She slid down a little further to get comfortable and then gave his cock a slow stroke. Truth be told, she could play with him all night, but she didn’t think his patience would hold for that kind of treatment unless he was tied down.

An idea for later maybe…

She licked up the underside of his cock, earning a hissed breath. Emboldened, she took him in her mouth, as deep as she could manage, mirroring the slow stroke she’d just done with her hand. Drew cursed, his hands spasming in her hair.

Power beat through her. She could drive him out of his mind like this, with just her mouth and her hands. It would be the easiest thing in the world. She moved to shallower strokes, using her tongue to swirl around the head of his cock.

“Avery, I—” She met his gaze as she licked him, and Drew cursed again, louder. “Holy fuck. Come here.”
