The king of supposed one-night stands, and my brother’s best friend.
I hate him.
I loathe him.
I despise him.
I love him.
He’s the man of my dreams and everything I know I should stay away from, but, oh, he’s so irresistible.
The things he does to me, I can’t keep my mind off of him.
But God, I need to keep my distance, yet I’m so drawn to him.
And then in an instant when my world is forever changed, Preston is the only one who I can turn to for comfort. He takes care of me, my mind, my soul, my heart, and my body.
But I know this can never last.
It’s not in him to settle down, and he surely won’t with his best friend’s sister.
This is a slow burn romance that takes place over a number of years. Harleigh always wanted Preston despite his reputation as a player. Since high school when she first figure things out til years later when they finally get things together and work out the pent angst and tension.
I’m a suck for a good best friend’s sister troope romance and this didn’t disappoint. I loved they took their time to figure things out and it’s not over night. Time can change a person between highschool and your late 20’s and early 30’s and this showed the best and worse of that period.
This book follows them as they figure things out. Preston is like many of the cocky heroes in this series . He is young and immature when first met him. He takes his time to get his act together as there is a lot happening to them that keeps them apart. It’s a tad over the top the obstacles that kept them apart and the fact that have many chances to do something about it but Preston just keeps moving on without taking a moment to things through.
He had to plow his wild oats a little too hard and Harleigh was a saint waiting for him but then that why he is a cocky hero. I dont’ agree with everything but I did think it was okay book.
