(shrugs) Meh...This book just didn't do it for me; like at all. I've always liked the concept of friends becoming lovers. I know its a line that some ..Show More »wouldn't cross, but that's never really been my issue. Any who, this book just missed the mark for me. I'm sure it gets all angsty toward the middle and blah, blah, blah, but I couldn't even finish it.
It felt kind of incestuous. I mean, in the beginning of the book they go on and on about how they have never seen each other as sexual beings and he's more like a brother and she's this annoying sister he's never had and blah, blah, blah. And then all of a sudden you're having sex?? Really? And it wasn't even good sex to boot..(at least not in my opinion.) To put it simply, the sex scenes were sub par. I mean, if you're going to risk your friendship shouldn't the chemistry be out of control? Shouldn't the sexual tension be thick enough to cut with a chainsaw. People should be literally chocking on the pheromones you and this person give off when they are in the same room as the two of you. I didn't get any of those things from this book. The narration was good though.
Take my advice. If you're looking for a book that does friends to lovers perfectly with the hot sex, heart racing tension and angst, listen to Before Jamaica Lane, by Samantha Young. You will not regret it.
Wasn't sure about this book after reading the synopsis and the lack of audible reviews posted at the time. I couldn't tell if this was worth my time a..Show More »nd $/credit. However all that being said I'm so glad I took a chance on this one. This was such a sweet story but had a dirty side as well. Overall it was a cute lighthearted story that's funny, sexy at times, but not overly so, and keeps your attention from start to finish. The narrators are amazing and only add depth to the characters. This book is worth a credit/$.
