Surrounded by true love and happily ever afters, Sawyer’s not sure if he’s enhancing the what-ifs in his head, or if the goddess on stage that night really is worth the search and nagging in his chest.

The only one strong enough to bring the elusive playboy to his knees is the one he can’t have. Luckily, Sawyer Beckett doesn’t give up easily.

This book is beautiful, witty, charming, hot, sexy and filled with intrigue and love and I just couldn’t get enough of it! S.E. Hall has a way of capturing characters and bringing them to live in such a beautiful and powerful way. I am once again drawn to this group of friends like no others. I want to be there with them when they play Pictionary and hang out together. I want to be in the bar and I want to dress as a princess to go to a birthday party… If for only a few brief hours, I am surrounded by these amazing friends, fictional or not, I just adore them to pieces.
This is Sawyer’s story. Sawyer is Laney’s roommate and has always been the life of the party. He has never lacked in bed and certainly has never had an empty bed. But at a bachelor party one night, everything for Sawyer Bennett is about to change. He sees her across the room and knows. Of course, this would go against every thing Sawyer has ever said about his friends and he finds himself completely smitten with that dancer… Who is that dancer… she’s not a good dancer, she sucks at it actually…
When Sawyer has looked through every club in town and is still unable to locate his mystery woman, Dane surprises him in a big way. Now working together, Sawyer couldn’t be happier. He found his one. The one. He knows it. She feels it… but it cannot work out.
Emmett is the one for Sawyer. But she has too much holding her back from a relationship. She already has the love of her life and nothing will separate her from it. But Sawyer and Emmett have such an amazing connection and quickly become the best of friends. What happens after that is just pure agony and pure love and hot and heavy lovin’.
Though this book can be read as a stand alone, there was always a question in my mind what was up with Sawyer when we had Laney’s story being told. Now it seems so much simpler than I thought it would be. I loved the banter between the characters and I loved the realness of their relationship. I loved that Sawyer was such a top notch guy in this book and I fell so in love with his passion. He knew what he wanted. Although getting to that point, caused problems and the two of them may or may not work out after the last one, I will still so drawn to his character.
This book wasn’t all drama and angst, it was real and it was full of humor too… Without giving away anything, there is a doctor’s visit that just had me laughing hysterically. I cannot get enough of the witty banter between the characters that S.E. Hall writes and she has done a fabulous job of keeping my friends going strong from book to book! I love this series and I love this book!
Sighing, I wrap a towel around my waist and open the door, ready to try and be at least behave cordially, which I know is only right. “Listen, can I—”
I look up, startled by Laney’s voice and even more shocked to see her sitting on my bed. Thank God I put on a towel. “Where’d she go?”
“Home, I guess.” She shrugs. “I didn’t ask. I heard the front door slam and got up to see what the hell was going on. Since you’re here and she’s not, I’m assuming it was her.”
How did I not hear the door slam? Not that I would’ve chased her. “All right, she left. So what’re you doing in here?”
She stands, grabbing some shorts off my floor and throwing them at me. “Go put those on and we’ll talk. Since I’m up,” she reminds me with an evil glare.
I head back in the bathroom to change, and stay in there, locking the door and taking a deep breath. I’m over six feet tall and lift almost every day, but yes, I’m scared to face Laney. Not only is she a hellcat when she wants to be, but I don’t want to see the disgust or disappointment in her eyes. She’s one of my best friends, even more so after becoming roommates, and her opinion means a lot to me.
“Get out here!” she yells when she finally realizes I must be stalling. “Take it like a man.”
I might as well go out there or she’ll undoubtedly come in here, kicking in the door or taking it off the hinges in what I have no doubt would be less than five minutes.
She pats the bed beside her when I open the door. “Come sit down. We’re doing this now.”
I hesitantly take a seat, my knee bouncing as I wait for her to speak.
“First, and of the utmost importance, you know I call my father ‘Daddy,’ so hearing your visitors scream it repeatedly in the middle of the night freaks me out. I wake up thinking I’m in some bad Lifetime movie.”
Fighting my smirk, I agree. “Okay, got it.” Maybe this little chat won’t be so bad after all.
“Second,” she stands and tucks my extra pillow between the headboard and wall before sitting back down beside me, “on school and game nights, booty call curfew is eleven. That work for you?”
“Yeah.” I sigh and run my hands along my head, wishing I had some hair to pull. “It won’t happen again, Gidge. I’m sorry.”
She places a hand on my shoulder with a small smile. “Don’t be sorry. This is your house too and we hadn’t talked about it. Now we have, so we’re all good. Any rules you want to put in place?”
“Nah, I’m easy.”
“Made crystal clear by the parade of women coming in and out of here.” She laughs and scoots away quickly, ducking the pillow I grab and swing at her head. “Speaking of which, been busier than usual lately—you trying to make a little Guinness or Gonorrhea?”
Here we go—this is what she really wants to talk about. It was a nice segue, funny even, but I’m on to her.
