An absentee father. A gambling addicted mother, who seems to show up only when
she needs something—preferably money. Natalea survives her childhood and
teenage years because of her best friend, Drake Harte, and his family. Even
though she’s been in love with Drake for years, she refuses to let her lust
come in the way of their friendship. Life without Drake is not possible and sex
would certainly complicate things.
most eligible bachelor and firefighter in Gamble Park, Florida, but he’s also
known for sexing the ladies and leaving them. Only he knows the reason he can’t
make a commitment to the women throwing themselves at him—he’s in love with his
best friend. It’s time he either goes for it or moves on.
night of passion, an unexpected event occurs that proves to both of them that
life—and love—are too precious.
This story caught my attention ever since I read the blurb. How can you cope with the attraction you have for your best friend? Is it worth risking a friendship for the sake of more? I would say no… Friends are priceless, lovers can be found. Or can they ? Natalea and Drake have to face this decision.
Good thing is that both characters know each other from many points of view (except the most important one I guess). Natalea has found in Drake more than a friend, a strong man which has never let her down, while her family proved to be anything but a real healthy environment.
I loved how the chemistry between them started to show, I loved how it developed and … something else which I won’t tell or else I will not be able to keep this review without spoilers. Guys, a friendly advice: check it out! If the cover is not enough, read the blurb. If you’re not yet convinced, try reading the book anyway… trust a fellow reviewer!
