    Can two best friends fall in love? Joan Kilby writes a romantic

    Can two best friends fall in love? Joan Kilby writes a romantic and sexy tale that tells us they can and do. Cassy and Scott have known each other since they were children. When he calls and asks her to come to Seattle and be his "firewall", she reluctantly agrees. With their close proximity everything changes. To complicate their emotions further, there is a fake engagement, Scott's estranged father and the need for an angel investor to make his Dreamcatcher a reality. This story is fast paced, humorous and so very romantic. I wanted Cassy and Scott to have a HEA. The characters are engaging and the dialogue is snappy. I loved Scott's techies! They were funny and endearing. I'm hoping that we get to read Leonard's story. He was charming. This is the first book that I've read by Joan Kilby, but it won't be the last. She has a nice touch that makes for easy reading.

    Mad About you is a book that gave this geek-girl a happy heart.

    Mad About you is a book that gave this geek-girl a happy heart. With the winning formula of best friends to lovers, it was a sexy, passionate, fun, believable and heartfelt romantic treat.

    Cassy and Scott have been best friends since they were seven. Twenty or so years later, she's living in their hometown with her fish and plodding along as an accountant wishing for more, whilst he's the big-city penthouse living multi-millionaire technological genius. When he needs help in finding an investor for his latest revolutionary development there is only one woman he turns to. And, with a little persuasion, she grabs the opportunity because deep down, this beauty loves the geek...

    I adored them both and their relationship, both before and after crossing the line, surprised me. They understand each other, complement each other, have a wonderful chemistry and a lifetime of pent-up feelings, but as brilliant as Scott is at what he does, he is clueless when it comes to the ladies and this is where Cassy came into her own. She's strong, sassy, knows Scott better in some respects than he knows himself and unleashes the man who had me swooning and sighing.

    If you're after a feel-good sexy romance then this is one I'd definitely recommend.

    Joan Kilby¿s latest book, Mad About You, is a delight. Kilby man

    Joan Kilby’s latest book, Mad About You, is a delight. Kilby manages to create a hero and heroine who are not only nerdy (in the best possible way) but also incredibly sexy. When these two childhood best friends want out of the friend zone and into that sweet lover’s spot, problems ensue, but Kilby manages their transition with humor and believability. I loved this first book of Kilby’s for the Entangled Indulgence line just as I’ve loved Kilby’s previous SuperRomances. I can hardly wait to read more of her books.

    I'm a huge fan of the friends to lovers and to me its a difficult road to go down. Cassy has always had feelings for Scott. They've been through so much together and her 1 time when she tries for something more didn't work out. In typical male fashion, Scott asks for a huge favor not realizing how hard it will actually be on her. Cassy, being the good friend that she is comes thru for him. what starts out as a small favor snowballs into something bigger and continues to push them closer to one another. Will Scott be able to let go of his past enough to give Cassy a chance?

    Mad About You was a great mix of business and pleasure. Cassy and Scott have been best friends forever and employer/employee just now. Both afraid to make a move and ruin their forever friendship, one of them will have to step up to the plate and make the first move. In the meantime, Cassy needs to find an investor willing to help Scott move his company to the next level and produce a really amazing new technology. 




    Scott has a lot of baggage though, and it may prevent him from succeeding in busines or with Cassy. It's a good thing both their stubborn streaks are a mile long because they both need them. 




    I really enjoyed the computer nerds and techies that work for Scott. They don't have a large part, but they really add a dose of humor and liveliness that is very refreshing. They are oblivious to the sexual tension in the air around them and it makes for a couple of interesting small scenes. 




    When things finally start to happen, it gets hot really fast and the chemistry is undeniable.

    Mad About You was a quick, cute read that takes one of my favor


    Mad About You was a quick, cute read that takes one of my favorite plots (the best friends to lovers) and gives it a different twist.  Take geeky-hot Scott who needs help financing his new invention and add his best friend Cassy who is bored in her life and looking for more.  Sparks start to fly as soon as they are reunited after a year.

    Mad About You was my first book by Joan Kilby and I will be on the look out for more from her in the future.  I liked that the book didn't take the expected or predictable and even surprised me at times.  Cassy was fiery and willing to do whatever it takes to help out her friend and Scott was just a mess trying to juggle so many things in the air while fighting his attraction to Cassy.  

    Even though I enjoyed the story there were some things that threw me out of getting completely swept away and I really wish we could have had more.  More background on the characters and more interactions with Cassy and Scott (and less about his invention/financing struggles) would have helped me connect with the characters.  I think there was too much trying to go on in 140+ pages and it seemed to run out of steam at the end (except the Epilogue was wonderful and I loved it) and I found myself with a lot of questions at the end that I didn't get answered.

    Mad About You would be a good book to grab when you want a quick and easy to read book that will get your mind off real life for a few hours.

    ¿New to me author¿ Joan Kilby has put a wonderful spin on friend

    “New to me author” Joan Kilby has put a wonderful spin on friends to lovers tale Mad About You.  Every time I thought I knew what was going to happen next she managed to surprise me.  I adored Scott and the Geeks.  Goodness knows Cassy needs a sense of humor to bridge the gap between the Geeks and the rest of the world but she does it with love and kindness.  For a light fun sweet romance add this to your list.

    In Mad About You, Cassy Morris gets an SOS call from one of her

    In Mad About You, Cassy Morris gets an SOS call from one of her dearest childhood friends, Scott Thornton. Scott is described as a hot geek, who is set to have his nanotechnology company skyrocket him to stardom, if another company doesn't get their first. He needs Cassy's help. Since she has the flexibility being the her own boss(tax accountant)she sets out to help him. The problem is she has not seen him in over a year, and in that time he has only gotten better. It doesn't help that she always had a crush on him and her past attempt letting him know failed miserably.

    The story moves quickly once Cassy gets out to Washington and these friends quickly go from working roomates to fabricated engaged couple. What is problematic is Cassy wants to believe the lie but feels Scott just doesn't see her that way. We learn though, that Scott struggles with his feelings for Cassy too, but because of old demons from being abandoned by his father, he just doesn't see himself in a relationship and he doesn't want to lose his best friend. Well you know what they say about best laid plans.

    I found the story to be a quick read as it only took me a few hours to finish. While I am typically a huge fan of stories which develop relationships among childhood friends, this one just fell a little short for me. I didn't really feel the emotional connection with the characters throughout the story. There were brief glimpses when they recounted tales of their first kiss or how Scott fell in love with Cassy but that was it. The most emotion provoking part for me was when Scott shared his dream with Cassy. That I loved, but then the story was over and unfortunately it just wasn't enough for me.

    Thanks to Entangled Publishing for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Mad About You Accountant Cassy Morris knows she¿s putting he

    Mad About You




    Accountant Cassy Morris knows she’s putting her heart on the line when she agrees to move in with her best friend, multi-millionaire geek Scott Thornton while she manages his nanotechnology lab and finds an angel investor for his revolutionary new product. She’s loved him forever even though he’s only ever regarded her as a friend. But Cassy never could refuse Scott anything... 




    When Scott is named Seattle’s sexiest man, the attention from women threatens to get in the way of him finishing his pet project and putting it on the market. Cassy steps up once again and pretends to be his fiancé. A lifetime of repressed sexual tension explodes in a passionate affair. Soon Scott is wondering how he can convince Cassy to turn their fake engagement into reality...




    Review:




    This is a wonderful friends to lovers story!




    Cassy and Scott have been friends since they were 7 years old, when Scott got left at his Aunt and Uncles house following the death of his mother. Years later, Scott is a gorgeous, geeky millionaire, who begs his best friend Cassy to come and help him get his nano product into the market and find investors. Cassy sees this a the perfect opportunity to see if maybe this can lead to more between the two of them.




    I really enjoyed tension as they both fight to keep their best friend and keep from getting hurt when things escalate between Cassy and Scott sexually and emotionally. There are lots of obstacles for the pair to overcome and not just about their feelings about each other. Scott has issues because of his being left by his father which come to a head when he comes forward as a investor. The scenes between father and son were great and full of emotion. Cassy and Scott have fought/hidden their feelings about each other for so long that there are a lot of missteps and hurt feelings before they overcome and get their HEA. Now, it is not all emotion, there are some fun scenes and the intimate scenes between Cassy and Scott are super hot!




    Great writing and characters that I could relate to made this an enjoyable read!
