Publisher's Summary

I'm stuck in the friend zone with the hottest guy I've ever known. Oh, and he's my best friend.

Zach pushes me away the moment sparks fly, and sparks have been flying since the day we met. For some aggravating reason, he's intentionally keeping me at a distance.

The way I see it, I have two options. I can leave town and make a fresh start, or I can show Zach how right we are for each other. The problem is, one of those options has the potential to ruin the best friendship I've ever had.

But I'm considering risking it all for love.

Excerpt:

"Nessa." His voice is a strangled growl.

"This shouldn't be a big deal. You said you're not attracted to me," I remind him.

"I didn't say that."

"You said there's nothing to worry about, and that I should make myself comfortable."

"I didn't think you were gonna skinny-dip."

Horrible female narrator

Omg, the female narrator didn't even attempt to maker the male voices sounds remotely like men. She didn't change up the voices and everyone sounded about 12 years old, especially the make voices. I could not picture this story with adults. Horrible. The stories are rushed and the endings have been unfinished. She forgot to properly end the book. I thought the books would improve, unfortunately no! I would not recommend.

Short but sweet

I loved it! It's the shortest of the series so far but still feels complete.

same as always

So this series should be named " The Love Bug of Lake Tahoe and The Blue Casino"
I'd bet dollars to dog sh!+ that the next book is about Hayden and Adam. It's like the same story every time with the same predictable out come and hiccups. And why is it called never date? All the books have the same happy ending so why not date your brothers best friend or your ex etc...kind of a dumb title for books that tell an opposite story than the title suggests.

Just wasn't for me

So, normally I won't choose a story on Audible of the narrators are unfamiliar. I knew ZW was going to be perfect and he was. EB was a new one for me and while she wasn't bad at all she wasn't doing it for me. I just felt she didn't fit the story. The story on the other hand was just not my thing. It was extremely slow, underplayed in so many ways, the characters didn't have enough moments to engage in friendly banter or getting to know each other. The snippet for the story didn't match at all and wasn't at all what we got. it basically ended as we expect but there was several chapters of fill where this book could have been cut in half and been fine without it. I'm not going to say it was a bad book, just that it wasn't for me.

OMGosh, OMGosh, OMGosh!!!! Each and every page... 😍😍😍

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel from the first page until the very last. It has been a very rare occurrence that I could just pick up a book and read it in one day; but, I was captivated by these characters and their amazing love story instantaneously.

Poor

Story is not well constructed and has no baseline. And there are a lot of gaps in the reading. The voices were ok.

Snore fest

This book was so boring. Initially the lead female is so self
Conscious and anxious then it just
Goes down from there. Not worth a credit.

Typical

Very typical story with a childish storyline. The characters weren't fully developed and very one dimensional.

If you are looking for erotica with the emotional maturity of a 16 yo, this is the listen for you

I didn’t enjoy this book, it felt like it started half way through a better developed story, perhaps I missed a prequel somewhere? The characters are emotionally immature and their relationship is over simplified.

Not as good as the previous books in the series

I need to get it through my thick skull that sometimes, it’s better to stop reading a series rather than continue, especially when they’re obviously heading downhill. Book three wasn’t great and this one is straight up boring. It’s missing major ingredients that make a book good.

The first two books of the series were fun while they lasted, but I’m exiting stage left.

Wow

Really enjoyed this book. Loved that they had the hots for each other from way back. loved that he went heard first in with no looking back. He was taking what was his and had been for a longtime.
Loved the drama and the mix of friends. Great read.
Narration was awesome too.
