Series Rating:

When Joya Bennett wakes up after her brother's wedding half-naked and lying next to her lifelong crush, she's mortified. OMG, did she try to jump his bones? Worse, did she succeed? Intending to lay low and housesit for her brother until the embarrassment fades, she sneaks away before he wakes up.
What she didn't plan on is having company.
Lincoln Fisher doesn't do relationships, but if he did, his friend's little sister would be the one to tie him down. Good thing Joya had one too many drinks during the reception or he'd have crossed a line. Her brother would kill him if he found out all the places Linc wanted to kiss the sexy, auburn-haired beauty.
And now they're stuck in the same house. For two weeks.
She's off-limits. And he needs to keep it that way, even if the heat building between them is hot enough to blow off the roof...


One of the things I love about series like these is you don’t have to read the previous books. Each one can be read as a stand alone.

I honestly love stories where you crush on your sibling’s friend. It adds a forbidden element because you’re pretty sure your sibling isn’t going to react well to the fact that you like their friend.  My one pet peeve is that the friend doesn’t notice you until you’ve grown up, while you’ve been pining over them for years.

Linc and Joya are freaking awesome when they’re forced to stay in the same place while Joya’s brother and wife are on their honeymoon. I love that Linc teases her, and she teases back some of the time. Mostly she’s just kind of freaked out that Linc is showing an interest in her.  Both of them have careers that could potentially decrease the time they can see each other.

The sex scenes are HOT! I love the chemistry between the two and the emotion even when they kind of try to deny that there are feelings involved.

Overall, I enjoyed this story. The opening chapter is awesome and makes you want to turn the page to find out how they are going to get over the awkward. It’s a quick read and can easily be read in a few hours.
