Best Friend Rule #1: never want the guy’s sister.
Trent Salway is one of San Francisco’s hot up-and-coming-under-thirty bachelors. A highly successful mutual fund portfolio manager, a workaholic, and a ladies’ man, he’s got everything he could possibly want…except one thing.
Physical therapist Kelsey Quaid dumped her ex-fiancé six months ago because she was tired of not even being a distant second to his career. Which is why despite secretly crushing on her big brother’s best friend for as long as she can remember, there’s no way Kelsey can go there. One workaholic in her life is more than enough, thank you very much.
Before Kelsey’s brother leaves on his Navy SEAL mission, he asks Trent one simple request: make sure Kelsey isn’t dating any assholes while he’s away. As Trent does his best to do just this, he and Kelsey spend more and more time together. Sparks fly, as do a few items of clothing, and the next thing they know things are getting physical between them. Now, Trent has to decide what to do about the woman he’s falling for—the one whose brother would take him down faster than he takes down the enemy. And Kelsey will have to decide if Trent is just another workaholic or if he’s decidedly off limits.
Review by Candy:
So what happens when you break the bro Code? You lie and sneak around but don’t get attached in that way..commitment. What is one to do when they want their best friend’s brother, make a deal and don’t get attached in the process….what could go wrong? Kelsey and Trent have known each other since who can remember and have always been around each other whether Kelsey’s brother (Liam) has been near or Trent’s sister (Erin). Trent and Kelsey go through a lot to keep their “friends with benefits” a secret to the point of hiring actors to play their significant other. One day Trent decides that the “relationship” is over and walks away from Kelsey, leaving her wondering what just happened and why. The cat gets out of the bag but there’s really nothing to fess up to since the “relationship” has been broken off for weeks. What happens when your best friend wants what’s best for you by helping you out secretly?
Stina I loved the way you put this “relationship” together and how each one was falling but Trent not realizing that he’d already falling before it’s too late. A must read for the shenanigans and the love story that will have you wondering if it will work out in the end.
