NYT and USA Today Bestselling author Kaylee Ryan brings you a new standalone series surrounding five best friends who co-own a tattoo studio.
It’s not like I planned to fall for my older brother’s best friend.
It just happened. With a perfect body covered in tattoos, and a dirty mouth, Roman is the kind of guy women notice—and believe me, I noticed. Even when I tried not to.
When he finally gives in to temptation, there’s no going back. At least for me. Too bad Roman doesn’t see it that way.
He thinks he needs to protect me and my relationship with my brother, but I don't need him to fight my battles. I just need him.
My name whispered from Emerson’s perfect pink lips is all it takes for me to betray my best friend.
Before that night, I kept the green-eyed beauty at arm’s length. Watched her from afar and told myself that the chemistry between us was one-sided.
I pretended that I didn’t want her more than my next breath. Which is what’s on the line if her brother ever finds out we’ve been sneaking around behind his back.
But I can’t stay away. Especially after knowing what it’s like to have her and lose her.
Now, I’m given a second chance, and I have every intention of making her mine—consequences be damned.
This is one of them that worked well. The connection between Roman and Emerson is obvious from the beginning of the book, and the reasons they have for being "forbidden" and choosing to stay away from one another work and don't feel forced.
While not a slow burn, the author really takes her time building up the relationship between them and really letting the reader connect with not only how much they both want one another but how conflicted they are as to whether or not it's a good idea.
I enjoyed not only the build up of the connection but also the time with them together. One of my main criticisms of the forbidden romance trope is that it can spend so much time dealing with them as forbidden that it doesn't really let the reader see them as a couple, which wasn't an issue with this one. We got to see them together as a couple and to be part of that evolution.
I can't wait for the next book in this series.
I enjoyed and recommend this title.
