Overview

They agreed: All the fun, no messy emotions. Until their chakras aligned…

Yoga is Kerri Harris’s life, but that doesn’t mean she’s a New Age flake. She’s a successful businesswoman, and it’s about time everyone took her as seriously as her mother-of-two, “real-career” sister. That means adding a new item to her spreadsheet—marriage plan. There’s only one person she trusts to help her check off this task: her best friend Mitch.

Divorce attorney Mitch MacAuley gets the cold shivers at the mere mention of matrimony. After the disasters he’s witnessed from childhood, marriage equals miserable. The last thing he wants is to help Kerri down that road, but he’s never been able to say no to her. He expects to feel pity for her as she goes on one disastrous date after another. The complete surprise? Thinking about Kerri with those other guys makes him crazy.

Her frustration collides with his confusion, leading to a big fight, a hot kiss and a scorching sexual tension that hits them both broadside. Prompting Kerri to propose a new plan…to add the bedroom to their list of BFF benefits.

They quickly find out there’s nothing casual about the heat they generate. In fact, the burn could ruin a perfectly beautiful friendship.

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 well...you 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!!

I love Kelly Jamieson's writing and the three other books of hers that I have read. This book took me a while to get into it though. Initially, I found Kerri very annoying the way she harassed her best friend, Mitch to arrange dates for her to find a guy worthy of marrying. Also, I felt she was too hard on him w/ the lawyer jokes & during their awkward phase when he crossed the friendship line w/ a hotter than hot kiss which she was totally into herself. In the end though I liked how she ran her business and stayed true to herself professionally....and by the end her and Mitch were made to be together. Mitch was pretty great from the first page although like most he suffered some moments of communication break down.
