    Amazing Chemistry...

    My Review:
    Again, my favorite trope...friends to lovers, but OMG, this one was done so well. I really, really LOVED this book!!! The book description above is really well-done so I am not going to add anything about the setup of the story and get right to the review part of this review.

    I love the way that these two characters were written so realistically. Yes, they are absolutely best friends, but when things heat up between them sexually, everything becomes REALLY awkward and tense for Mitch & Kerri. All of a sudden, they are fighting constantly and sniping at each other about everything. That's one of those things that only works with really good friends...they may be there for each other, but OMG, they know how to push each others buttons too.

    Kelly wrote this really can see that the sexual chemistry between the two is sizzling, but they are using aggression to fight it. But when that aggression becomes too much and they do give into the sexual tension...OMG, it is so incredibly HOT. I think that I can honestly say that the sexual scenes in this book are absolutely the hottest and most erotic that I have ever read. There is so much emotion written into and woven throughout them...OMG, really amazing writing!!!

    The real issue with this relationship long-term is that Mitch truly does not believe in marriage. He had a horrible home-life growing up and now he's a divorce attorney. All he has ever seen is the destruction wrought by the institution of marriage. But for Kerri, she is 30 years old. She wants a family with all that it entails...a husband and kids. As these two realize that they are in love, they don't know how to get past that huge difference in ideals, without giving up their love. There is a fabulous character arc for both of them that is so sweet and truly beautiful. It's amazing writing. I loved both of these characters and watching them connect...LOVED IT!!

    Really just a fabulous book. You will definitely be seeing more of Kelly Jamieson's books in my coming TBR piles!!
