Maggie Drummond has a boyfriend... Greg in her office, but Greg is about as vanilla as they come, and after trying to run her life one too many time, she has had enough. Fortunately, she'll always have Connor as a friend, and her clique of girlfriends. Maggie wanted to try a little kink in her life, a little spanking, and even set up an anon blog to explore her fantasies. But as her imagination blossomed, Greg started to restrict her life more, even as Connor offered to have a fling with her, as he had eyed Maggie for a while and really want to get out of the friend zone. And Maggie never told Connor that her clique had a pact... to NOT date Connor. Now Maggie had to juggle lies and half-truths, as she tried to have Connor as FWB, fend off Greg at work, and lie to all her girls... and she'll be forced to make a choice: abandon her job and her friends to indulge in her fantasy... or is there an HEA with Connor?
This plot included several LAYERS of deception, as Maggie had to juggle lies to her friends, to Greg, to work (about her blog), and so on. And Greg was basically a robot, too one-dimensional, to be taken seriously. The way all the lies coalesced into one big darkest hours, when all the lies came due, was really good, but the ending seems to have dragged on a bit too long.
Connor is a bit of a player - constantly having a tall lanky blonde on his arm. He secretly has a crush on one of his female friends, and then he finds out she's looking for a lover to spank her. He puts himself forward, offers a friends with benefits arrangement, and falls in love.
Newly single Maggie is curvy, sassy, and has a crush on Connor, but a pact with her female friends means her feelings remain secret. As does her desire to learn more about spanking and finding more fulfilment in her relationship, about which she creates a blog. When Connor approaches her to have a casual sexual relationship she is wary but not willing to let the opportunity slip by.
As their relationship develops and feelings deepen, issues from their pasts and the secrecy threaten to ruin their romance before they can admit the truth.
I really enjoyed the interaction between the friends, the banter and emotions were very well written. The sex scenes were hot, and their was plenty of drama. This book does contain consensual spanking but it is secondary to the emotional relationship between the characters.
Connor is a rugby player and works for the same firm as the rest of the girls. He has been attracted to Maggie for awhile so he asks her if she wants to be 'friends with benefits '. She finally agrees but they mustn't tell the other girls. When they all started hanging out, they made a pact not to get involve with Connor.
Will the secrets tear their friendship apart and can Connor convince Maggie she's the only one he wants?
Sex. Spankings. Massages. And a friends to lovers story that will have you turning the pages until the very end.
