OMG! This was sweet and sexy and full of more emotions than I was expecting! Lauren and Lili what are you doing to me!?!

When two people are connected by not only a tragic event, but also a lifetime of memories, this makes for a powerful thread that is hard to break. Both Jessie and Ruby have never crossed the line that has been in their lives. Connected by Jessie’s little sister, who is Ruby’s best friend, there was always a silent understanding that a line would never be crossed, until the chemistry brewing between them finally becomes too hot and they finally step over that line.

I found myself choking up multiple times, as this story was very emotional, but it also held all the hotness, and humor that these ladies are known for. It was the perfect mix that held my attention from the beginning until the very end.

While Ruby is a young woman who is just getting her life back in order after a tragic accident, Jessie is right there by her side as a constant cheerleader and friend. Before he leaves, to live across country, he wants to help check items off a list (a list that was left behind by his sister). Items that will help Ruby live her life bigger, something she hasn’t done since the accident and with time running out Jessie needs to help.

They spend Jessie’s last two weeks together, checking off all Ruby’s items and boiling over in their chemistry. These two together are pure magic. Smexy, addictive magic that will pull at all your heart strings as well.


A sexy best friend’s brother romance from bestselling authors Lauren Blakely and Lili Valente!

I’m the wrong guy for her.

She’s sunshine, and cherry pie. I’m whiskey and fast cars. I’m also keeping one hell of a secret from the woman I’ve wanted for years.

But when I find a list my sister left behind for Ruby, I’ve got no choice but to offer the sexy, big-hearted girl next door both a road trip and a chance.

A chance to discover how big she can dream.

And if some of those dreams play out in the bedroom? Well, there’s nothing wrong with a few — okay, several — hot nights together as we hit the beach, visit old stomping grounds, and test all sorts of limits, in and out of the sheets.

Seven days, then I’m off, moving across the country, far away from her.

No way can things get complicated in a week. Ruby and I aren’t the kind of dream that has a shot of coming true.

Especially once she learns what I’ve done.
