A fiery, forbidden, older-brother’s-best-friend romance, featuring a virgin heroine and a playboy hero who’s never been penetrated by cupid’s arrow… until now.
It’s forbidden… but that just makes it hotter.
Courteney Clarke is the kind of girl who rock stars like me write songs about.
She’s beautiful, but she’s totally off-limits.
Because she’s my best friend’s little sister.
Now she tells me she’s a virgin—and she wants me to be her first.
But she’s just f*cking with me. I know she is.
She just hates me that much.
She knows her brother would freak if I touched her.
And if she plans to keep putting it in my face so I’ll give in… we’re both in a world of trouble.
This is cold war, but I’m not giving in.
Problem is, neither is she.
I know I need to do the right thing here…
But the wrong thing might just be way too filthy to resist.
So this book is about Xander. Of course, Xander has fallen in love or maybe lust with someone he can’t have, his best friend’s sister Courteney. Things heat up quickly with them both living at her brother’s house. This book jumped a lot from the present day to the past. Xander and Courteney have a history together as well as friends due to her brother and old band. Cary is kinda a hermit and definitely didn’t make much of an appearance in the book. The story was about Xander, and it was great to watch him go from a player to a devoted boyfriend. Even though that took the entire story, his hot, cold attitude toward Courteney was different. I liked that the characters had a history.
The author did a great job making this a steamy romance even though it was filled with lots of drama. Her stories are always enthralling. She is so detailed, and her characters really come to life. The story of friends turned lovers is an ancient tale, but her spin on it was fabulous. I loved getting to know Xander better and seeing him defeated by a girl, just barely an adult. The age difference between the main characters definitely threw me at first. Still, I have to say maturity-wise, they seem to be at the same level.
Like all her books, this one contained plenty of steamy scenes and an excellent rockstar story.
