Always You

Shari finds out what kind of man her fianc‚ is before they marry, thank goodness. Imagine the mess if they'd married and she found out what a cheating scumbag he was? Rather than face a church full of people she grabs her bags, and her best friend, and goes on her honeymoon. Did she mention her best friend is a man?

Jon can't get out of the best friend rut. He and Shari have something special but he wants it all. Thrilled that she left her fianc‚ after finally figuring out his true colors, he's determined to make his move. Circumstances have always conspired against him but this time nothing will stop him.

Jon is truly a nice guy and that's what's created his dilemma. An alpha he's not but determined he is. Not wanting to step on toes has placed him firmly in the friend zone and he's sick of it. He's never wanted to be the rebound guy and that's why he's never made his move. Everyone who knows him and Shari knows he loves her so it's time she did too. It's the only way to get where he wants them to be. Could Shari reciprocate?

Shari was truly clueless about Jon's feelings. She didn't think he felt that way, that he was a serial dater, and just relied on him as a friend. But when they have the best sex, ever, she starts to see him in a new light.

A cute little read that probably describes a lot of "friendships." How many men fall into the BFF trap when they really want more? A sticky situation that Jon handles beautifully and it doesn't hurt that he's a sex god as well as a good person. A satisfying read with some steam to back it up.

Book Blurb for Always You

When Shari discovers that her fiancé has been cheating on her, she lets the wedding go on according to plan. Except while everyone else is at the church, Shari is heading to the airport to fly off on her honeymoon with her best friend, Jon.

Jon is only too happy to help Shari escape what he knew would have been an awful marriage. Plus he’s thrilled by the prospect of time alone with her in a tropical paradise. He’s always loved her, and desired her as a lot more than a friend.

A steamy, romantic night on the beach turns into a whirlwind of desire as they take their friendship to multiple new levels of passion. But when Shari’s apologetic ex tries to win her back, she must choose between the life she thought she was going to have with him and the possibility of love with Jon.
