It’s not every day you wake up to a stranger getting into your bed.
Only, he isn’t a stranger at all, he’s my best friend’s hot older brother…and apparently my new roommate.
Having him in my space, driving me crazy, isn’t a problem at all. Nope.
All I need to do is keep control of the situation…
But that’s easier said than done. Shawn Lassiter is the kind of distraction I don’t need. First he accidentally gets into my bed, half-naked, the night before my first day at my new job. Hello, muscles and tattoos! Then he’s there, in nothing but a towel, making me coffee in the morning. It’s more than any girl can resist. Right?
But Shawn is off-limits, even if his eyes are saying differently.
Years ago, back when I still had my crush, he destroyed friendships with his reckless playboy antics. There’s no way I’m touching those perfectly formed abs now. I don’t care how nice and responsible he’s acting. I don’t want a boyfriend anyway. That’s what my trusty vibrator is for.
I’m the smart girl—the glasses-wearing, book-reading workaholic. I can totally do this. After all, it’s only for two and a half months. I’ll be on my best behavior…even if Shawn isn’t.
Falling for the best friend’s brother may not be one of the most complicated tropes, but it may cause some issues and we will find out about some of them from Jessie and Shawn’s story. I liked them as a couple and I liked how each has to break some rules to be together. Somehow, they both get out of their comfort zone and find out it’s really great to do it.
Jessie has always been focused on anything she was doing, be that school, books or work. So having the opportunity to prove herself as an editor is a major thing. She must focus on her job, even though her roommate is… hard to ignore. Almost the same for Shawn – he realized he was good at something, he likes his bear and likes making it, he savors the process of creating that special aroma. And he also needs to prove his worth to his boss. Lust after his sister’s best friend has no place, especially since she is off limits (like: „been there, done that, but with another best friend of the sister. And then another…” ).
Sometimes, as much as you say „No”, it’s kind of visible you want to say „Yes” and when one (feel good) mistake happens, for sure the next will too. I liked how Shawn slowly started to break Jessie’s walls and how he managed to tempt her. There is another side of her, behind the glasses and the books.
There were some parts of the book where I had the impression that he did a lot for her, while in return she was not willing to do the same. I would have preferred to see them come together differently in the end. These are my only two negative comments.
All in all, this was one of those books that make you feel good and experience that first crush emotions. I read it in one sitting and I had a very fun time reading it. I hope you’ll enjoy it as well 🙂 4 stars! Happy reading!
Rebecca Brooks lives in New York City in an apartment filled with books. She received a PhD in English but decided it was more fun to write books than write about them. She has backpacked alone through India and Brazil, traveled by cargo boat down the Amazon River, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, explored ice caves in Peru, trekked to the source of the Ganges, and sunbathed in Burma, but she always likes coming home to a cold beer and her hot husband in the Bronx. Her books are about independent women who leave their old lives behind to try something new–and find the passion, excitement and purpose they didn’t know they’d been missing.
