Irreverent, cocky, playful and naughty.
He’s not the guy you date.
He’s the one night stand.
The one your mother warned you about.
The one your body craves.
You’d think the man who called me succulent would want to strip me down and spread me out on his bed—like he’s done with countless others.
But he passed on my offer….
Just like I’d once passed on his.
He’s wary, like I am.
He’s broken, like I am.
And everyone knows two broken parts can’t ever make a whole.
Tahoe and I are strictly friends.
So I distract myself with other men.
He doesn’t think my new man is good enough. This blond blue-eyed beast doesn’t think any man is—himself included.
But the more time we spend together, the more confused I feel.
I'm trying to open myself to love.
Yet I'm quickly realizing that the only man I want is Tahoe Roth.
The one man who will surely break my heart.
I got my hands on this one at the last minute and I couldn't wait to crack it open. I was not disappointed in the least! At first, I really wanted to hate Tahoe. Gina was putting herself out there after he tried to get with her at Saint and Rachel's wedding, and he says NO! Who does that?!? Tahoe does and after I binged the whole book in a couple of hours, I completely understood why.
Tahoe has a list of issues from his past that make him feel like he can't love. He knows Gina is the type he could fall in love with and he doesn't want to break her. Gina, sweetheart that she is, decides if she and Tahoe are only destined to be friends, then she'll take it. She wants him in her life.
This friends to lovers story is intoxicating and I could. not. put. it. down! My emotions through the whole thing were all over the place and I loved it! The chemistry between the two is explosive and the slow build up of these two characters sets this story apart from other friends to lovers stories that I've read. Seriously, a home run that you need to 1-click now!
