Publisher's Summary

At 12-years-old, Claire Barker developed a massive crush on her best friend Sarah's older sister, the handsome, butch Alex Williams. Now 27 and a successful entrepreneur, Claire's interest hasn't waned - despite Alex's fashion photography career keeping her overseas for months at a time. When Alex moves home unexpectedly, she and Claire end up enjoying a surprise, wine-fueled reunion that alters their relationship forever.

Are Claire's dreams about to come true, or will real life prove to be more complicated than her fantasies?

Great story overall

The only thing this story is missing is the flirtation that starts the most relationships, but it's not really needed. The love scenes are steamy and frequent, so draw yourself a hot bubble bath and get cozy, because you're going to have a hard time putting this one down.

What disappointed you about Her Best Friend's Sister?

I have listened to quite a few lesbian romances and erotica and enjoyed them immensely. But this reads like a bad porn movie. No build up - the tackiest lines and really no story line except a crazy ex-girlfriend that sends the new girlfriend into constant self-doubt. There is way better lesbian fiction and erotica out there than this.

Extreme erotic! Give me a cold glass of beer!

Out of all the O'Brien books I've read, this is the most sexy erotic book she ever wrote! NOTE: I would say about a good half the book is well wet sex scenes!! (So, you are warned!) Or very happy!
The rest of the book has good story and characters that does help to flow along well. Except the bad ex-girlfriend was typical flat one-side bitch. Very emotional main characters from jealousy too with soft caring love that was brilliantly written.
I wish the ending plot didn't wrapped up too fast done.
Clarke performance is very convincing telling each characters in a different vocal personalty.

Well

I mean, if you’re looking for a book that’s primarily back to back sex scenes without a whole lot of storyline, this is the book for you! There’s enough character development throughout that you can get a Little bit into the characters...but let’s face it, this is a book with a lot of sex and not a lot of depth/plot. Still a fun listen though!

It was not her best work

The sex scenes were hot but the story was blah. It was very repetitive and got boring. She could have done a better job with the story. I found myself waiting for the book to be over.

Pure porn

Not worth finishing! Pure porn! Very explicit, which may not be a bad thing, but not much of a story and pretty boring!

Aye well.

Never got past the first chapter. It certainly didn't sound like the worst thing I've ever listened to but still. Hmm., Sorry.

Great butch/fem dynamic

I loved this book. I really enjoyed the dynamic of Claire and Alex’s relationship. It was a nice change to have a butch main character, especially one who took charge in the bedroom too.

This book is definitely not safe to listen to at work. There are a lot of very hot sex scenes, in fact I initially thought that I’d accidentally downloaded a collection of erotic short stories but this is a full novel.

Once I was a couple of hours into the book I encouraged my wife to download it too and she also really enjoyed it.

The narrator’s voice sounded very young which was a little bit off putting at first for a book with a lot of sex in it but she did do different voices for the two main characters. I got used to her sounding like a sixteen year old after a while.

sorry but I cant listen to this voice

What would have made Her Best Friend's Sister better?

Sorry but the narrator of this book is awful, I seriously had to stop listening. Whoever signed this off for listening hasn't done the author any favors. its a shame as the subject matter was quite entertaining.

What didn’t you like about Faith Clarke’s performance?

I'm sorry but her voice was so mundane and moving from character to character was an excruciating listen.. just awful.

To much sex not enough story

This really should be classified as lesbian erotica. The story outside the sex scenes would fit in a single paragraph, it is constant sex scenes one after another which frankly though is enjoyable at first I certainly quickly got sick of the lack of story outside of sex, sex and more sex. Not to my liking, especially given there are some really great lesbian romances with an awesome story to keep one interested such as When Women Were Warriors by Catherine M. Wilson, this is no such story. I rarely return books but I did return this one.
