Falling For his Best Friend by Katee Roberts

Happy Release Day!!!

Falling For his Best Friend
by Katee Roberts

A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...

He's going above and beyond the call of duty...

Avery Yeung's biological clock just went off early. Thanks to her family's medical history, she's running out of time to get knocked up. And the only guy within donating distance? Her overprotective-and irritatingly hot-best friend. So clearly she needs an anonymous donor...

Anonymous donor? Over Sheriff Drew Flannery's dead body. While daddyhood will never be in the cards for a man with his past, Drew won't let Avery shop for a "popsicle pop." He'll do what's right for his best friend by doing his best friend. But only if they do it properly.

But there's nothing "proper" about it. Between the bed, the kitchen counter, and against his squad car, Avery and Drew are having the hottest sex ever. They can't get enough of it-or each other. And without knowing it, they've crossed the one line that could ruin their friendship forever...

Kathie's Review:

I like the best friend to lovers trope, and Ms. Robert did an excellent job with it here. Drew and Avery have been close for years. There was that one moment where they almost took their relationship beyond friends, but they were both worried about losing their friendship if it didn't work out. So they let the moment pass. 

Now that Avery is taking steps to have a baby, without benefit of a relationship, Drew can't stand the idea. There is no way he's going to let her do this alone. He's also not on board with her finding some random guy to father the child she so desperately wants. He'll do the honors...and scratch that itch that always festered where she's concerned.

I do enjoy watching friends turn into lovers, and this one was lots of fun. I also found myself really MAD. Avery's very traditional Grandfather was horrible! Truly awful. I sincerely hope Drew was right and Grandma reads him the riot act. There will be another book in this series (Out of Uniform), I'm sure, and I hope we get to see him get his behind handed to him. 

If you've never read Ms. Robert before, you're in for a treat. I recommend this to those that enjoy contemporary romance.

Thank you, Entangled and Netgalley, for the opportunity to read this book.

Katee Robert learned to tell stories at her grandpa's knee. Her favorites then were the rather epic adventures of The Three Bears, but at age twelve she discovered romance novels and never looked back.

Though she dabbled in writing, life got in the way--as it often does--and she spent a few years traveling, living in both Philadelphia and Germany. In between traveling and raising her two wee ones, she had the crazy idea that she'd like to write a book and try to get published.

Her first novel was an epic fantasy that, God willing, will never see the light of day. From there, she dabbled in YA and horror, before finally finding speculative romance. Because, really, who wouldn't want to write entire books about the smoking-hot relationships between two people?

She now spends her time--when not lost in Far Reach worlds--playing imaginary games with her wee ones, writing, ogling men, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
