Living under Reese Madaris' roof makes LaKenna James the envy of every woman in town. But Reese's offer of a place to stay is strictly platonic - just until Kenna's new condo is completed. He has no idea that his best friend has been attracted to him since college, and Kenna plans to keep it that way.
Ever since his cousin Blade got married, Reese has become Houston's most eligible bachelor - and a magnet for gold diggers. Reese turns to his temporary roommate for dating advice, and suddenly sees Kenna for the beautiful, voluptuous woman she is. Though Kenna's afraid to give her heart to the man who could so easily break it, when her life is in jeopardy, she'll discover just how far a Madaris man will go when love is at stake

First my name Melissa , I live in Stafford, VA. Have one son. I finished school in 1990. I'm 43 years old. My birthday is 9-19-71.
I like Pete, he did a good job. Reading the story. I like the part where they was dance together in front of his parents. And the family. Want to know where they was looking. They said why they was looking at the. That on the dance floor. I like how they come together, Love one another. One of my favorite book. By BRENDA JACKSON. She is wonderful Writing, GOD BLESSED IN SPECIAL WAY! Like the end of the story.😄😊😉😁
I love Beverley Jenkins and her stories. My first AA romance was Clayton and Syneda's story when I was in high school and I've been hooked, but this narrator leaves much to be desired. His reading is smooth but when it comes to the characters dialogue, his speech becomes stilted, (think William Shatner parodies) and sometimes uncomfortable to listen too. It's not the first time I've noticed it, but I was hoping it was a weird quirk in the last novel I listened too but he did it again. I will be avoiding this narrator from now on if I can help it.
First I am a Brenda Jackson fan. Her story lines are classic with a pinch of new world favor. This story is one I read and listen more to than three times and never bore of it. Romance, mild erotica, and mystery something any Grown Woman can love. I will recommend this book to a romantic at heart. Happy reading
Lovers and Friends
Reese of course. Reese is the kind of man that a woman can appreciate. He only had eyes for McKenna, even when he didn't even know it.
Not one in particular, some of the voices he performed came out rather creepy. I'm not going to say he should stick to only male voices because the voice of Sir Drake, was scary, I didn't like it at all.
I really don't have a memorable one. It was a great book and I'm not going to spoil it for others. I will state that the killer in the book is unsuspected.
I'm going to go back to book 1 and read from the beginning of the series. I love Brenda's work. I don't think you have to read them in order but previous characters from the other books do appear in the current books.
I had read some of B. Jackson's other books, and love this one equally!!
Reese Madaris...Laid Back Sexy!!
Best Friends Tango into Best Lovers!!
I found this story both sexy and thrilling. Good job to Pete O for his articulate way of presenting the story! Love it!!
