Her best friend's brother never looked so hot...
Brooke de Lorenzo knows Pete Monroe is off-limits. They crossed that line once, in a make-out session that rocked her world, but anything more would be complicated. Messy. Unbelievably hot. And deep down, she's afraid the younger man might just break her heart.
Pete's worked years to make sure he will be worthy of Brooke, and he's not going to wait any longer. He's going to show her what they have is very real, and that forbidden fruit is the sweetest and most satisfying.

My Rating: 4.5 Steamy Stars Favorite Quote: “There was a need for closure, and it was more or less universal. That was why cliffhangers were always resolved, why people gritted their teeth and slogged all the way to the last page of books they weren’t enjoying, why quitters were reviled by society.” My Review: I have no complaints about Nadia Lee, none, nada, zilch. I enjoy her work start to finish. Every piece has been well written, steamy, vivid in detail, and well depicted. I am only sad that I have run out of stories, I have read them all, I now understand and empathize with Kathy Bates’ character in Misery, who held her favorite author as a hostage and required him to write more sequels. Who wouldn’t want a Pete in their life, a handsome, intelligent, funny, and successful man who has been carrying a torch for 8 years? Eight years! That alone signifies this is pure fantasy, as no man is that patient. This novella matches the title, it is sweet but unfortunately short, I was so sad to see it end.
Loved the story of Brooke and Pete. I highly recommend this author and this series. Mjw
I found this book to be a sweet, simple love story. No real angst, tension or drama. Pete, who is Amandine’s brother, and Brooke, her best friend, have finally found their way back together after 8 years. Pete works for his brother in law, Brooke is her best friends assistant, but an event back when the two were kids have kept them apart all these years. Pete decides it is time to make his move on Brooke and while she is not sure she can overcome the embarrassment of the past, she agrees to go out with him. We watch as they reconnect and find a new beginning for the two of them. I didn’t find the same intensity to this story as I have found in the authors prior books, I also appreciated that this was a quick easy read after the drama from Amandine’s book. While it isn’t the drama filled page to page entertainment that some love, I think there is value in a quick first love story. We were invited to see more of Brooke's family and the acceptance they offered her and Pete. I really adore her father when he was talking about losing his wife and smoking. Both characters were already known by the readers in the prior books so the author didn’t use a ton of space and pages giving us hidden details that we didn’t know before. It was a very fast and smooth read, only took me a couple of hours and was a great escape for me after some of the intense books I had been reading. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a book that will give you a couple of hours of entertainment without the heavy plots, twist and turns that keep your mind racing. *Copy provided for review* Reviewed by Tbird for Crystal's Many Reviewers*
