Publisher's Summary

Setting up my stunning best friend should have been easy - and my brother's best friend, Jaeger, seemed like the perfect candidate. Until I saw him again.

Whoa.

Jaeger Lang, my secret high school crush, has grown up and bulked up. But that doesn't matter, because I have a perfect life. Really.

Until my boyfriend turns out to be a douche, I lose my job, and my life plan falls apart.

Even so, I could keep my hands to myself...if not for those hard abs, broad shoulders, and intense green eyes.

I should hold back in case my friend is interested. Or in case Jaeger's ex has some claim on him. Or in case of a million other reasons.

But if he's not willing to play by the rules, I don't think I can, either.

First book of 250+ I truly struggled to finish

If you are over 25 in my opinion you are too old for this book. I out loud groaned and eye rolled more times than I can count. The supposedly smart lead woman is immature, unbearably dramatic and jumps to the very worst conclusions on the flimsiness of "evidence". The lead was so completely insufferable that I truly struggled to finish the book. I wish I could say it got better. I was going to continue in the series, but I don't have that many eye rolls in me.

Engaging Story For Me

I enjoyed the story. The narrator brought the characters to life for me. The story held my interest from the beginning. Love this author's work.

YES!!

Love this story!
Seeing this book in Audio made my day!
I felt like I had taken a trip down memory lane, having been a fan of the storyline and characters when I read it the first time around.
The narration really brought this book to life, adding more depth and emotion!
I'm excited to start the second one!

Cali and Jaeger!

Cali and her best friend Gen are working at a casino for the summer in Lake Tahoe before Cali starts law school at Harvard in the fall even though she has questions if that is truly what she wants to do. She has been dating Eric for the past two years however he is using their separation as a reason to end their relationship without manning up and telling her.

Jaeger was best friends with her brother while they were in school. He had dreams of being an Olympic skier however an injury ended his career as well as his relationship with his girlfriend Kate. He is now living in Lake Tahoe and what begins as friends escalates into more but not without overcoming some obstacles along the way and that was before his past came crashing into his present and turned everything upside down.

This story has a few twists, a lot of drama, some angst and no shortage of emotion. I enjoyed the way the narrator managed to get you emotionally invested in the story.

Great story!

Younger crowed but, still a great story with great writing. Narrator is spot on. Wish they had more of a dual story but, I can't wait to see how it progresses.

Not your average romance novel

I’ve read books about falling in love with your brothers childhood friend and just when I thought that this book would be just like the others... no way! Completely different !! This book had great a great storyline and debt to it and it was quite enjoyable. Through the romance, friendship, ex drama and family drama this book really takes you for a little ride.

Cute but very problematic in various ways

The beginning storyline was cute but it began to drag on after the author repeatedly added new plots when the book could have already finished. It would have been better if it was a little shorter and she had used other plots in a separate book.

Secondly, there is a large amount of content surrounding sexual abuse. Two women and two men are sexually attacked. Then the people who attacked them never received any punishment. The women just pushed aside their valid feelings about being almost raped and never told any authorities about it when it would have made sense for them to do that. If you are sensitive to that topic, I would listen with caution because that topic is repeatedly brought up.

funny and captivating

Jules Barnard pulls you into this along with Cali and Jaeger. The attraction between these two are off the chain and Jaeger is every girls dream. Meghan Styles did a stellar job of bringing the words to life!

Happy ending

Lots of unforeseen twists, the ups and downs she encounters in her life are frustrating and believable, but it all ends happily ever after, just as I like.
