Smith Hamilton has it all—he’s smart, good-looking, and loaded. But he remembers a time when he had nothing and no one, so he’s not about to mess up, especially with his best friend’s little sister. That means keeping Evie at arm’s length . . . even though the once pesky little girl is now a buxom bombshell. A sexy blonde who pushes his self-control to the limit the night she crawls into bed with him.

Evie Reed knows she’s blessed—with an exclusive education, a family who loves her, and a new job managing social media for her family’s lingerie company. But she wants more, like a reason to wear the sexy lingerie herself. She has just the man in mind to help with that. She’s crushed on Smith forever. Surely tricking her way into his bed will force him to see her in a new, adult way.

Except that when Evie’s plan leads to disaster, she and Smith must decide—ignore the attraction sizzling between them, or become play mates and risk it all.

  • Fun and steamy romance

    A brother’s best friend book!! I adore this type of book. There is something so good about how they’ve known each other for so long so they are friends and then progressing to more than just friends. It’s naughty and oh so perfect at the same time. This book made me snort, giggle and cry with laughter. It’s angsty but not to an extent where the angst is the main crux of the storyline. Evie has loved Smith for a long time or crushed on him for at least 7 years. She wants him to be her first in different ways. However Smith can’t because her brother is his best friend. They end up working together in a lingerie company which leads to so many humorous moments and seriously the irony! I laughed, I cried and I went on the emotional rollercoaster too. There are some moments where the laughter dies down and it becomes steamy, and serious and real. I like how the humour balances out those moments. This book however did feel a bit flat in parts but the humour carried this book for me. I enjoyed it and definitely looking forward to more from this author. 4 stars

    I'm really loving this new series of completely standalone stories fro Kendall Ryan. Smith and Evie embark on a kind of forbidden relationship and I loved the tension that arose from the sneaking around behind Evie's brothers back. I got all the feels as the feelings developed and more lines got crossed. Kendall Ryan delivers a quirky, sassy read that is imaginative, sexy and keeps you turning till the last page.
