Publisher's Summary

Zoey Stranford might've had a crush on the sexy boy next door since middle school, but she's a woman now, and that crush has turned into a full-blown case of lust. So why is it that at twenty-nine her libido decides to ramp into high gear, making her only focus the intensely sexy, scorching hot boy next door - who is definitely not a boy anymore? The problem is, Zoey and Kaleb have been best friends for as long as she can remember. Not to mention that Kaleb and his brothers are trying to buy Stranford land to build a new resort, and she's more than a little uncertain about his intentions.
Kaleb Walker has had his eye on Zoey for close to twenty years, but never before has he considered taking their friendship to the next level, no matter how many fantasies he's had about her over the years. Suddenly he is hell-bent on having her - in as many ways as possible. Kaleb finds himself in a precarious situation. His brothers have nominated him to pursue Zoey's father about the land needed to get their new resort off the ground. When he learns Carl Stranford is on the brink of foreclosure and Zoey might lose her house and the land, Kaleb must convince her to put aside her pride and let him help her.
It doesn't take long before the flames start burning bright and hot, and the two of them burn up the nights and the days as they explore each other's forbidden fantasies. But can their friendship survive a business transaction or the new friends-with-benefits clause? Or will they realize that they've been overlooking something much deeper that's been right in front of them all along?

What. The. Phuck.

What would have made Kaleb better?

If he wasn't a total contradiction. On one hand he is this nice guy who Zoe has known since high school, yet he is also a total horn dog sexual deviant. He was in love with Zoe, yet he was totally comfortable sharing her with his best friend and totally comfortable watching her get f*cked six ways to Sunday by another man? Then he goes on to goddamn propose to her? No. Just no.

What could Nicole Edwards have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

This book was equal parts boring and cringe inducing. The fact that the two characters knew each other for so long and NEVER pursued anything until now was ridiculous. There was so much unnecessary background that had no use and wasn't pursued by the author (Zoe's ex-husband, Kaleb's ex fiancee) which just made the book so much more amateur.
And what the f*ck was up with the threesome situation??? Zoe and Kaleb decide to pursue a romance of sorts together and then all of a sudden she is getting double teamed by her long term crush AND his best friend? This made no sense to me Kaleb showed hurt and disdain for his ex-fiancée when she tried to sleep with one of his brothers. I have to say that the threesome scenes made me grit my teeth and shake my head in disgust.
The whole book was an utter waste of time and I am actually angry that rubbish like this even gets published.

What aspect of Freddie Bates and Eliza Grace ’s performance would you have changed?

Freddie Bates was fine, Eliza Grace made her characters sound stupid and she didn't change her inflection enough for you to realise a male character was speaking.

What character would you cut from Kaleb?

Kaleb's parents, his ex, Zoe's ex... there were way too many characters that offered no input.

Any additional comments?

This is the first book of Nicole Edwards' I've read and I am NOT impressed. This book was rubbish and I am going to ask for my credit back.

I'm not sure where to start, as to why this book is so bad. The characters are under developed and leave me not caring what happens to them. The story line is extremely random and the entire book comes off like a really bad porno. I love reading/listening to romance novels and like any other lady out there am always up for a great sex scene but this book just ruins them.
