Can't Have You: A Stand-Alone Brother's Best Friend Romance (We Shouldn't Book 2) Kindle Edition
Angry, black-clad, skinny little punk chick.
That’s the face I show the world.
Until Finn Gallagher takes one look at me and shreds my mask to pieces.
The first time I meet him, Finn straps me to his chest and jumps out of a plane.
My heart is going to explode.
Is it the adrenaline, or the fact that he’s all man, all muscle, and he looks at me like he wants to eat me?
Oh—and he happens to be my brother’s best friend.
Also known as off-limits. Forbidden. No-go.
Irresistible. Brooding. Beautifully broken adrenaline junkie.
Finn doesn’t even want me. He says so himself.
Looks me right in the face and shakes his head: No thanks. Not my type.
But his eyes say something different.
His lips don’t agree, either.
His hands? Don’t even get me started.
He can pretend all he wants, but I see right through him.
Life is short.
I say we self-combust and break a few bed frames along the way.
What could possibly go wrong?

Esme is a tiny and somewhat fragile woman who is trying to finally live life since her fight with cancer for the last 6 years. She has decided to go live with her brother for the summer to work at his business to make some money and get away from home for the first time in her early adult life. What she doesn't count on is in the very first five minutes of walking into her new work is to meet her brother's business partner and having a connection and desire she thought she would never find.
As for Finn, the business partner, he can't believe that just meeting his best friends sister would turn his world upside down, make his blood boil like lava and give him emotions he wasnt ready for.
These two come together in a tumultuous time in Esme's recovery and her new life. Eventually neither of them can deny the feelings of connection and desire they feel but what about the relationships they have with Kit, Esme's brother and Finn's best friend/business partner? Will their newfound love be the end of things between them all?
I absolutely loved this story mostly because it felt real and was extremely well written. The sparks, lust and love that develop between Esme and Finn is an intense chemistry and connection that explodes off the pages and had me turning page by page ready for more!! I absolutely recommend any romance lover to read this book because it has so many emotions and feelings that you just can't resist!
I received this book as an ARC for an honest review.
Esme is in town for the summer to stay with her half-brother Kit. She’s finally cancer free after battling lymphoma for the past six years. Her mother is clingy and overprotective and doesn’t believe that Esme is strong enough to go. Esme meets Finn when her brother takes her to the flight school, he works at to go skydiving. Esme and Finn feel the pull of attraction, but both fight it because of Kit. Esme has some self-esteem issues from her long battle with cancer and the lack of an adult social life because of it. She’s pretty much afraid of everything, not that I can blame her. Finn is a daredevil and adrenaline junkie. They really balance each other out. Can they work through everything to find happiness together?
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
Can't Have You by Lilian Monroe has catapulted itself to one of my favorite of her books. This is book 2 in the Brother's Best Friend series. It can be read as a stand alone.
Esme & Finn could not be more different. She's also his best friend's little sister. Esme relocates to Woodvale for the summer to get away from her mother and celebrate some independence. Finn and Esme have chemistry from the start and like a good best friend and good sister they try to resist each other.
Esme has had real life struggles. Survivors tend to go wild or retreat to safety. Finn sees that Esme has been retreating and he helps her achieve that balance.
There's a dash of meddling friends with a heaping spoonful of drama.
I cannot wait to see what Lilian Monroe comes up with next.
