Author: Jess Dee
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Genre: Contemporary erotic romance
Review Rating: 4 LIGHTNING BOLTS
Lucy Lawson’s got it bad. Bad as in stunned speechless by the situation she’s in, by the feelings sitting on her chest, ready to explode. She’s in love…with her best friend.
Problem is, telling Sebastian Blackford could destroy the best thing in her life, but the longer she keeps her feelings under wraps, the stronger the need to spill her secret.
The last thing Seb suspects is that his best mate is madly, wildly in love with him, or that he’s the star of her seriously dirty fantasies. Worse, he’s just started seeing someone he’d like to see again—and Lucy knows it.
So why does her confession hit him like a runaway train? And why can’t he get her explicit description of her fantasies out of his mind? They’ve never been more than friends, but now that he knows how Lucy feels, everything is out of whack.
Seb figures it’s up to him to get their relationship back on track. He’ll do it too, just as soon as he establishes which track is the right one.
REVIEW: Can someone please pass me a fan? Some ice maybe? Anyone?? *looks around*
This was one HOT friends to lovers tale. I have read several books by this author and have yet to find one I didn't love! Ms. Dee sure knows how to write a hot story! In More than Friends we have Lucy and Sebastian who have been best buds for many years. When Lucy has the sudden realization that she's fallen in love with Seb, she has to figure out if its better to keep those feelings to herself or let him in on the new development. Obviously, she goes with the latter and shocks the sh*t out f him! What follows is some seriously smoking sex and the two of them trying to figure out which way to take their relationship with all these new developments.
I really liked this story and how it unfolded. There were a few moments where I thought things may not go in a direction to my liking and I wanted to smack a few characters in the head but in the end it all came together and I was happy! :-) The writing was great and for a shorter book the characters were very well developed. It was nice that we knew from the beginning that Lucy and Seb had already known each other for years rather than just meeting and falling in love too soon. I would love to see a follow up to their story and see where they end up!
