*Synopsis*In a novel that's perfect for fans of Abbi Glines and Jessica Sorensen, USA Today bestselling author Lauren Layne delivers a sexy take on the timeless question: Can a guy and a girl really be “just friends”?
When Parker Blanton meets Ben Olsen during her freshman year of college, the connection is immediate—and platonic. Six years later, they're still best friends, sharing an apartment in Portland's trendy Northwest District as they happily settle into adult life. But when Parker's boyfriend dumps her out of the blue, she starts to wonder about Ben's no-strings-attached approach to dating. The trouble is, even with Ben as her wingman, Parker can't seem to get the hang of casual sex—until she tries it with him.
The arrangement works perfectly . . . at first. The sex is mind-blowing, and their friendship remains as solid as ever, without any of the usual messy romantic entanglements. But when Parker's ex decides he wants her back, Ben is shocked by a fierce stab of possessiveness. And when Ben starts seeing a girl from work, Parker finds herself plagued by unfamiliar jealousy. With their friendship on the rocks for the first time, Parker and Ben face an alarming truth: Maybe they can't go back. And maybe, deep down, they never want to.
Parker has just been dumped by her boyfriend and she is now looking for some no-strings-attached sex. Ben has been doing it for years...so, why not?
She tries and tries, but when it comes to it, she can't let herself do it.
She understands that her partner has to be someone she trusts..that's when everything clicks..why bother looking around when she has the perfect choice next to her?
With Ben she can be herself, they'll just have a friends with benefits relationship and then everything will just go back to normality.
But will they really be able to not let feelings get in the way?
This was such a great book! Friends to lovers stories are my favorites, but lately they all felt kind of boring and it seemed like reading the same thing all over again.
I am so happy to say that this one reminded me why I love this trope so much!
This book was fantastic: it was funny, sweet, sexy and the characters were great too.
Parker almost pissed me off at some point, though, but I'm glad it all worked out for the best.
I am definitely going to read more books by Lauren Layne and I can't wait.
I definitely recommend this book for all the fans of the friends to lovers trope out there! You absolutely need to read this one!
