He has a offer she can’t refuse
Daniel Tanner’s been in love with Amy since they were teenagers, and he’s tired of being seen as the proverbial best friend. If she would only give him a chance to show her how good they could be together, that giving in to the fiery attraction between them won’t burn up and ruin their friendship.
Amy Morgan has had a front row seat to the parade of women coming in and out of Daniel’s life for years, and she’s not interested in risking their friendship for something that would eventually end in heartache. And that’s how it would end, because if Amy’s learned anything in life, it’s that men leave. She couldn’t handle having her heart broken by her best friend, even if the promise of untold passion is keeping her up nights.
But no one knows Amy better than Daniel, and he’s devised a plan to show her they can have it all.
I've said it a million times on my blog, but I'll say it again: I am a huge sucker for friends first types of romances. I'm not sure if it's because that's sort of my husband and I's story or what, but I really love stories where two friends end up together in the end. I liked some parts of this one but others parts REALLY frustrated me.
What I Liked:
* The male MC is the one that was absolutely head over heels for the female MC. So often, it is the other way around, and I think it's refreshing when the tables are turned.
* These two had some sizzling chemistry, and there were some really hot scenes.
What I Didn't Like:
*This is the main issue I had: The lack of growth in Amy. By the end of the story she STILL didn't really trust Daniel. She projected all of her father's failings and her cheating ex's issues onto him when he had done nothing but be her loyal best friend for years.
* Amy doesn't make any sense. She realizes that she has fallen for him so to protect herself from getting hurt she pushes him away.... which hurts her anyway, soooo....??
So overall, I would say that this one was just an "okay" read for me. It's a fairly short read at only about 224pgs, so it's great for a quick romance fix.
