This romantic journey revolves around Jay Bradshaw and Mia Waters. It all starts out in college when Mia starts dating Jay's roommate and then the unthinkable happens. He cheats on Mia and then Jay takes Mia's side and their bond has been getting stronger every single day for the past six years. While Jay knows almost everything to know about Mia's habits and quirks, Jay keeps his innermost thoughts and feelings close to the vest while keeping his secrets of his childhood under lock and key. After six years, Mia needs to know something from Jay and after finding the nerve, she opens pandora's box when she asks Jay if he's ever thought about having sex with her! Their friendship is tested after this one question and what they shared before doesn't even compare to the emotional connection they begin to have. But can they weather the storm and just be friends with benefits without it getting to sloppy? Or is heartbreak inevitable when casual sex and emotions are intertwined?
This story is very believable and not cliche at all. This is a honest depiction of what could truly happen between best friends when desire, needs and sex come into play while trying to keep it casual. There's tons of humor and sarcasm mixed in with angst and heartwarming moments. The sex scenes are intense and leave the reader breathless! No way can you keep it casual after your read about these intense and soul - baring moments.
This book is an absolute gem! I couldn't put it down. It wrapped itself around me and pulled me in until I reached the end in a single day. Can't wait for more from this author!
That was all she wrote, I've been awake going on 6 hours now, I've sent my husband to work, my daughter to school and thank goodness I'm done now because I work nights and need some sleep dammit!
I could NOT put this book down, I say that a lot because it's true but I folded laundry while reading this book, cleaned, ate, brushed my daughters hair and packed my husbands lunch while reading this book. I HAD to know what was happening at all times.
I love that this book is in alternating POV's I love that both of these characters and the secondary characters were so easy to read, that I became so interested that I need more.
Jay well I just loved him, also found myself slightly annoyed by him but not enough that I didn't like him, more like a Oh for Pete's Sake, get it together dude kind of way ;) I also feel for the guy mostly because Mia reminds me of me and Jay kind of reminds me of my husband. He generally seems really chill and laid back, quiet but he is with the outspoken chick who could give a crap less what she says which leads to interesting little squabbles and her mouth getting her into trouble.
As for Mia that's why I like her she reminds me of me, even though she has that way about her she doesn't come off as a gigantic beyotch she's just Mia. Her grandmother Lily is also pretty great for the same reasons.
There is quite a bit of humor (thanks Cameron) and all kinds of heat, but a really good plot too. One of the most enjoyable books I've read so far this year. I'm excited for Cameron and Paige's books!
