A sexy category romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…

She’ll make him lose control…

Madison Daniels has worshipped her brother’s best friend since they were kids. Everyone thinks she and Chase Gamble would make the perfect couple, but there are two major flaws in their logic. 1) Chase has sworn off relationships of any kind, and 2) after blurring the line between friends and lovers for one night four years ago, they can’t stop bickering.

Forced together for her brother’s wedding getaway, Chase and Madison decide to call a truce for the happy couple. Except all bets are off when they’re forced to shack up in a tacky 70’s honeymoon suite and survive a multitude of “accidents” as the family tries to prove their “spark” can be used than for more than fighting. That is, if they don’t strangle each other first…

I actually gave it three stars because of the way J.Lynn writes. I love her writing style and I respect her work and effort. It was easy to read and enjoyable, a decent book in other words but just that. Other than that the plot was predictable to the point it was getting lame. I knew what was coming before I even read ahead. The characters as well. There was nothing special that would make me favor them. Anyway I never regret reading a book and this is no exception. I liked it and finished it and I enjoyed it.

All the rumors you heard about her state aren’t true.

Well, mostly. When she’s not hard at work writing, she spends her time, reading, working out, watching zombie movies, and pretending to write.

aboutthebook icon

For twenty-one-year-old Sydney, being in love with Kyler isn’t anything new. They’d been best friends ever since he pushed her down on the playground and she made him eat a mud pie. Somewhere over the years, she fell for him and fell hard. The big problem with that? Kyler puts the ‘man’ in man-whore. He’s never stayed with a girl longer than a few nights, and with it being their last year in college, Syd doesn’t want to risk their friendship by declaring her love.

Kyler has always put Syd on a pedestal that was too high for him to reach. To him, she’s perfect and she’s everything. But the feelings he has for her, he’s always hidden away or focused on any other female. After all, Kyler will always be the poor boy from the wrong side of tracks, and Syd will always be the one girl he can never have.

But when they’re stranded together at a posh ski resort due to a massive Nor’easter, there’s nothing stopping their red-hot feelings for each other from coming to the surface. Can their friendship survive the attraction? Better yet, can they survive at all? Because as the snow falls, someone is stalking them, and this ski trip may be a life-changer in more ways than one.

Reasons why to read this book?

1) It’s written by Jennifer L. Armentrout (actually her alter ego J.Lynn) who’s really talented. Her writting style is amazing and she can make you feel like you’re in the book, living among the characters.
2) The plot might seem cliche but there are twists that can keep your interest in the whole story. Personally I wasn’t able to stop reading it.
3) The characters are so… real… and you will fall in love with them and their relationship/friendship. They made me wish I had someone so freaking close to me.
4) It’s steamy enough and not tiring. The mature content is not too much but enjoyable.
5) Fun and easy to read when you need something to relax you.
6) Maybe the best book I’ve read so far in the “friends-to-lovers” category.

Enjoy!
