Publisher Description

A sexy best friend's brother standalone 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.

GOOD WITH HIS HANDS is a sexy standalone romance in the Good Love series!

Couldn’t put it down!

My favorite tropes of friends to lovers and sibling’s bff all jumbled together makes this reader very happy. Add in two very likeable characters with very little drama and I’ve got a book I can’t put down.
Ruby and Jesse aren’t quite the opposites as the blurb might imply. While Jesse restores fast cars, actually all types of cars, he’s an artist as well, just like Ruby. He and Ruby are connected through his sister, Claire, who was Ruby’s best friend.
What starts with a to-do list of new experiences left to Ruby by Claire turns into a discovery of feelings both Ruby and Jesse have long denied. While their close friendship turns smoking hot, they cross off things that help Ruby discover the life she’s been missing.
Ruby and Jesse were extremely fun to read about and follow along in their journey. Their banter was fun and sexy, and I was totally invested in their happily ever after. A fan of both Lili Valente and Lauren Blakely’s work, this collaboration was just as awesome as I expected it to be. Can’t wait for the next one!

All in good time

Definitely recommending this book! The characters are easy to like and great together. Their life long friendship-to lovers relationship was so addictive to read. I had to finish to see how/if they would figure it out before it was too late.

Love Jesse & Ruby!!

I absolutely adored this book! Lauren Blakely continues to wow and entertain me with her wonderful stories and characters! Add in the talented Lili Valente as her cowriter and you have a little slice of heaven right here! Not only can she write, but Lili Valente is also a wonderful narrator! Joined by the incredibly talented Joe Arden, they are so beyond amazing bringing Jesse and Ruby to life. Such a delicious feast for the ears!! I love these two characters and they are so good together and good for each other too. Their connection is special in that they have been friends for a long time on a different level because of Jesse's sister who was Ruby's best friend, who passed away. I love the whole concept of what she left behind for Ruby and how that shapes Jesse and Ruby's current relationship. OMG that first kiss was probably one of the hottest ever!! Swoon!!!! Their decision to try FWB of course is thwarted because it is so hard not to catch feelings when you are intimate together and spending so much time together but even more so if you were truly meant for each other. And you can clearly see that Jesse and Ruby are meant to be!! Loved it!! Can't wait to see what's next in this series!
