Would you be willing to make a mess of your life to get exactly what you want?
Kylie Lord has known Trent Moss and Dray Savage since college. Trent, the smart and kind-hearted humanitarian has had her heart from the moment they met, but someone else always has his. Dray is an arrogant professional football player who happens to be Trent’s best friend and Kylie’s nemesis “with benefits.”
Five years after graduation, Kylie is commanding the world with a new image and a successful business; however, she lacks the one thing she wants and the one thing she can never have. That is, until one fateful night when Kylie decides to go after all of her forbidden fantasies and risk everything.
Two men, completely different and poles apart, but together they are her idea of perfection. One can only offer her tonight and the other forever, but can Kylie settle for just one man, or can she have her cake and eat it too?
This book was quite a surprise to me. I didn’t think there could ever be a love triangle like this one… Kylie has been in love with the same man for what seems like forever and she wants to wait for him to come around and love her as anything but a sisterly figure. But Trent doesn’t want more. He is perfectly content being the amazing humanitarian that he is. He just doesn’t see anything like that between him and Kylie. But she seems to be his go-to with every crisis, including that of his best friend, Drey.
But when Trent asks Kylie for the ultimate favor even knowing how much Kylie despises Drey, he is also pushing her to something more without even knowing it. Drey is an amazingly hot football player, but the problem with Drey is that his mouth just says all the wrong things. But when he is severly injured, at the request of Trent, Kylie is there to take care of him.
The love that Kylie always had for Trent and this new found appreciation for Drey proves to be a ride on a crazy train. Kylie knows that she has loved Trent forever and Drey is his best friend. Drey knows that Kylie has been waiting for Trent, but he wants the kind of love that Kylie has for Trent.
This is such a tangled web and Kylie has to figure her stuff out before she is good for either of these guys, but does she even want both of them when it comes right down to it? And when the ultimate unthinkable thing happens, it could potentially ruin all three of them and destroy all of their hearts forever.
This book was amazing. But not for any of the reasons I thought it would be. It was raw and the emotions thrown in couldn’t have been better written and there’s the angst… GAH! Nicole Reed has a way with that stuff like no other. I couldn’t put it down because I had to know who she was going to end up with and who was going to end up with her. This book kept me enthralled deep in the pages and I didn’t want to put it down.
It was fabulously written and had amazing characters. Like I have said time and time again, characters are always going to have flaws of some sort, but when you don’t exactly know which flaws are being brought to the surface throughout the entire book, it certainally keeps my interest. Although there is always one team to root for, I really couldn’t decide until the very end who I wanted the winning man to be. I wanted them all to win and to live happily ever after. This was a great read and one I am not soon to forget!
“Do you feel that, Kylie?” He continues to caress my arm with his hand. “That’s power running between you and me. I never imagined it would be so strong, so intense. Can you even conceive what my body rubbing against yours well feel like? Please unlike either one of us has ever experienced. Sex in its greatest form.”
His words hypnotize me, seduce me, and demolish my inhibitions so that even my common sense agrees with what he is saying. I’ve never wanted sex as much as I want it with Dray at this moment. In my head, I can see images of us entwined together, his dark against my light skin. The sight, in my mind’s eye, so clear, so erotic, that my breathing becomes erratic just with the thought. Closing my eyes, I feel his fingers glide to my breasts, circling the tip through my clothes. My clit throbs in tune with his movements almost as if he is touching me there. Dray grasps my nipple tightly as he pulls and squeezes. The dual motion overwhelms my senses, and an orgasm overcomes me, rippling up and through my body. Clenching my legs together, I moan as I ride it out. My body shakes, tingling with the aftermath of what just happened, and what I need to be happening again; however, sanity returns with me still sitting on the side of the couch. Opening my eyes, Dray stares at me like he knows my every thought. At least now, he has a supreme satisfied smile on his mouth and his shorts are in a superior tent out front.
“Damn girl. That is about the hottest sight I’ve ever seen. Had you been butt-naked, I think I would have exploded right along with you.”
