Never before has a woman got under his skin. Can Julian earn Heather’s trust back, and will he finally have the courage to give the woman he loves a ring?
Be Warned: spanking, anal sex
I’ve been a fan of Sam Crescent for a while and when I saw this book, I knew I had to review it. I have read many of her books and enjoy her writing style. I love her spunkiness and the way she doesn’t care if it will offend anyone or not. She writes with passion. I started reading this book and I just wanted friends like Heather had. Then I realized that each one of them still keep some secrets from each other. They are there for each one and they speak their minds and that are the kinds of friends that everyone needs. I loved how Heather went ahead and had an affair with her boss Julian. She knew how he was with women and she still took the chance knowing that in the end her heart would be broken. That just shows you the kind of woman that Heather is. She is a little down on herself because she isn’t skinny like every woman wants to be. It seems that when she gets with Julian she starts feeling better about herself. I can’t wait to read about the other three. I hope that each one gets their own story because they each have different personalities that you just can’t ignore. I was trying to go slow and take this book in but it just sucked me in and away I went. It did have a little bit of spanking, but not enough to call it a BDSM. I would tell everyone to read this book because it has a strong woman who is willing to take the chance. She also knows that no matter what her friends will be there for her whatever the outcome is.
It's almost torture to be in love with her boss, just ask Heather Booth. She has no illusions that it would ever work since he doesn't do commitment. She should know since she buys all the jewelry that he gives at the end of his affairs, plus she's just not his type. How on Earth could she expect him to be attracted to her when all his other dates have been the tall, thin model types. Out at a club with a client, Julian Goff can hardly keep his eyes off Heather when he spies her dancing with her friends. Sparks fly when Julian confronts Heather about her after hours activities and suddenly Heather finds herself sleeping with the boss. They both know that there's a time limit on their relationship since Julian runs as far away as he can from marriage. But will he really want to keep running? I loved this book! Heather and Julian are just a great couple to read about, not only is there incredible chemistry between them that leads to scorching hot sex scenes that also manage to be tender, but the story just feels really solid too. I was also thrilled to see that this book is listed as the first in a series called Friends, Men and Secrets because the little teases we get of Heather's friends lives leave you waiting for their stories. I really just love her and her group of friends! They are such a great example of solid friendship which was just another bonus to go along with Heather and Julian's story. I had never read a book by this author before but I've already gone and added others to my to read list and I'll definitely be watching for the next book in this series! I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that it's soon!
