About Falling for His Best Friend:Avery Yeung’s biological clock just went off early. Thanks to her family’s medical history, she’s running out of time to get knocked up. And the only guy within donating distance? Her overprotective—and irritatingly hot—best friend. So clearly she needs an anonymous donor…
Anonymous donor? Over Sheriff Drew Flannery’s dead body. While daddyhood will never be in the cards for a man with his past, Drew won’t let Avery shop for a “popsicle pop.” He’ll do what’s right for his best friend by doing his best friend. But only if they do it properly.
But there’s nothing “proper” about it. Between the bed, the kitchen counter, and against his squad car, Avery and Drew are having the hottest sex ever. They can’t get enough of it—or each other. And without knowing it, they’ve crossed the one line that could ruin their friendship forever…
We all know I’m such a sucker for a friends with benefits book by now, so this book started out on a good note for me. Especially the “can’t keep their hands off each other” kind of scenario. God, I loved it.
The pregnancy twist was something that I had trouble with. It seemed a little sitcom-ish to me. Maybe because a few of my “I’ve seen each episode 100 times” shows have has similar scenarios before: Friends, Will & Grace, and Parks & Rec. Those shows make up about 2/3 of my TV on DVD collection.
But yeah, it seemed a little exaggerated and sitcomish. Maybe I was exaggerating it more in my head because I’ve seen it in sitcoms, I don’t know. But for me, that part hurt the overall rating – and it’s kind of a big part of the book, so it’s definitely worth mentioning.
Yet despite the premise, I loved Avery and Drew together. And them with their friends and supporting characters. I didn’t even realize until I started my review that this is #2 in the series, so I’ll definitely be buying #1.
I do love Katee’s books, and this was definitely enjoyable. Even though it might be on the lower end of my favorite Katee Robert books, it’s still better than a good majority of the books I’ve read in the past year. So Katee, keep doing your thing. 🙂
About Katee Robert:
Katee Robert learned to tell stories at her grandpa’s knee. Her favorites then were the rather epic adventures of The Three Bears, but at age twelve she discovered romance novels and never looked back.
Though she dabbled in writing, life got in the way–as it often does–and she spent a few years traveling, living in both Philadelphia and Germany. In between traveling and raising her two wee ones, she had the crazy idea that she’d like to write a book and try to get published.
Her first novel was an epic fantasy that, God willing, will never see the light of day. From there, she dabbled in YA and horror, before finally finding speculative romance. Because, really, who wouldn’t want to write entire books about the smoking-hot relationships between two people?
She now spends her time–when not lost in Far Reach worlds–playing imaginary games with her wee ones, writing, ogling men, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
