Kenna hasn’t been home since her wedding day. The wedding day that didn’t happen. Seems her sister and fiancé were getting busy behind her back, and her sister announced that she was pregnant right before the vows. Humiliated, Kenna returns to work and her best friend, Nicky. Careful and closed off after the betrayal, she is just going through the motions.
Nicolas has loved Kenna since the first time he saw her. Thrilled with the demise of her wedding, he’s happy to be the best friend until Kenna has healed enough to handle what he really wants; forever. When Kenna is pressured to come home for Christmas, she asks Nicky to act the part of her boyfriend. Nicky suggests they extend it to his family at New Years. And who is acting?
This had so many familiar storylines running through it I lost count, but they were woven together to make a fabulous read. I really don’t know how the author does it, but she manages to turn the familiar into something new and engrossing to read. The story of Nicky and Kenna was hot and steamy, with creative “at the parents house sex” galore. The misery of Kenna’s sister and ex-fiancé was played up to perfection. With hints of a future romance for the youngest sister as well as a visit to her paranormal series characters Nashe and Terry, this was one hopping book. It was a guilty pleasure and again, I look forward to more from this author.
