Nothing beats getting an unexpected/unplanned release from one of your go to authors. When I see Kendall is releasing a new book I am all about reading it. Her stories are comfortable for me, if that makes sense. The are sexy, fun, light reads that put a big happy smile on my face.
Chloe and Shaw are best friends, but over the past few months their relationship has changed. Shaw’s wife died and what started out as a mistake, a one time hookup has turned into more. On the night of his wife’s funeral he finds himself sleeping with Chloe while trying to gain comfort.
Chloe reminded me of so many girls, in love with her best friend and willing to do anything to make the pain go away. And honestly willing to do anything to have even a piece of the person she loves. I really understood that, but I didn’t really understand Shaw at first.
The story really starts after this arrangement has been going on for four months. At this point Chloe is realizing this isn’t really good for either one of them. He needs to really grieve, heal and move on and she needs to give-up on someone who will never see her as more than a friend.
I love the premises for this story and in the end I really liked both characters. Call me greedy, but I just wanted a little more. I wanted more time with them together. I wanted to really feel his love for Chloe. I didn’t feel a connection to the characters like I normally do, but this book is intended to be quick it isn't a full length novel. That being said, this one is perfect for when you want something sexy and quick.
