What happens when you have been friends forever and you’ve shelved any romantic feelings because the friend zone is in place? It happens more often than people want to admit. Let’s face it, the last F in BFF doesn’t stand for a dirty word. Relationships are hard work with messy feelings and friends are there to help us clean up and listen to everything we have to endure. So in Swallow Me Whole the underlying theme of friends to lovers is never far from either characters mind. Is it really worth risking years of friendship to potentially cross that line? Once that line is breached you really can’t go back.
Sadie and Ashton have been friends since grade school, along with Ashton’s twin sister Mandy. When Sadie finds her boyfriend cheating on her, in a rash decision, Sadie makes a move on her long time friend Ashton. Opening “Pandora’s Box” neither of them are willing to close the lid, yet Sadie is wise enough to include a few rules, hoping that her heart doesn’t get too invested.
Since Sadie has been friends with Ashton for so long, she knows he’s something of a player and she doesn’t want to be another girl in his long line of itches to scratch.
Once Sadie makes her intentions known to Ashton, it’s full throttle for him. He’s been in love with her for a long time. He’s willing to play by her rules, for now, but he has his own game plan to win her over and eventually make her his.
Swallow Me Whole is filled with lots of steamy hot goodness and lots of tender moments. If summer wasn’t hot enough already this will ensure that you feel the heat.
