Forbidden love! With the next book in Katherine Garbera's The Wild Caruthers Bachelors series, we get Ethan's story. He's lusted from afar for years after he moved too slow to make the first move before his friend swooped in and made her his, but when circumstances put Chrissanne within his reach for once, temptation may be too strong. The characters and situation were attention grabbing, and the plot had a bit of intrigue to it as well leaving us wondering what was going to happen for awhile there. Enjoyed it! When the woman he loves shows up on the doorstep of Ethan Caruthers, he should be thrilled ... if only she wasn't his best friend's girl!

He's wanted her since the first moment he saw her all of those years ago ... but you can't get with your best friend's ex ... can you? Chrissanne Moss can't believe she's wasted so many years of her life on a man that doesn't want forever with her. When she needs a friend, who else would she turn to but Ethan? She has known that he has feelings for her for awhile .. should she admit her attraction as well? When surprising news comes, they are blown away and seek comfort with each other ... but can it last considering their history?
Friends since college, Ethan has accepted his loss of dating Crissanne to his friend Mason despite his strong feelings for her in Craving His Best Friend's Ex by Katherine Gabera. Now, twelve years later, Mason has decided to let Crissanne go because he didn’t want to get married and have a family yet. With nowhere to go, heartbroken Crissanne seeks comfort and a place to regroup by landing at Ethan’s front door. Ethan is happy to help her out but he is not sure their friendship can become more once he lets his true feelings for her come out. I enjoyed reading this story but struggled with the characters. I struggle with the reasons Crissanne stayed with Mason despite his treatment toward her. Also, she knew Ethan had feelings for her and her for him, more than friends, but wouldn’t leave Mason on her own. I did like how much stronger Crissanne became during the story; more confident and independent. Ethan was an enigma as he kept his feelings and emotions in check, afraid to share these and his thoughts with his brothers or Crissanne. The author allowed us, the reader, to see inside Ethan’s head but no one within the story. Ms. Gabera is an excellent story teller but fell a bit flat in this one. I do recommend this book to other readers looking for a quick read and enjoy forbidden relationships. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
