She’s the woman he can’t live without.
The one he can’t risk screwing up their relationship by sleeping with her.
Linc Kingston doesn’t accept anything less than perfection. Not in his billion-dollar business or in his personal life. He has it all. Except one thing. His personal assistant and best friend in his bed, moaning his name. No matter how much Linc wants her, she’s completely off-limits.
Jordan Greene grew up the daughter of the housekeeper at the Kingston estate, where she met and bonded with Linc at a young age, despite their economic differences. But no matter how close they are now or how much their attraction simmers beneath the surface, they’re still from two different worlds. Besides, Jordan isn’t about to risk losing her best friend for one sensual night.
Jordan might be the only woman who can handle Linc and his domineering, bossy attitude, but beneath that gruff exterior is a vulnerable man who, despite his wealth, has had a less-than-charmed life. And when Linc’s father dies, she’s there for him—unwavering in her friendship.
Until one night of passion and a positive pregnancy test changes everything.
I'm not sure what I was expecting in this series so I was open to anything. This is a best friends to lovers with a surprise pregnancy thrown in. I found the story somewhat addicting because I wanted to know what would happen next. There were so many mixed signals in this book.
Linc and Jordan did NOT want to screw up their friendship by sleeping together. Plus she is his Personal Assistant and if they slept together people would talk. He did NOT want to be like his father. So he forced himself not to think of her that way. Jordan is the maid's daughter. People in Linc's circle look down on her and do not understand their relationship. She would always be looked down on by his people as the maid's daughter. So even though she is in love with him, she can't sleep with him. She could never fit in to his world.
But what happens in Florida, stays in Florida. Well... until it doesn't. What will happen when they return to New York and his normal life? Can they go back to just being best friends? And when she gets a surprise, how will Linc respond?
Carly Phillips was a name I could trust for a smart, well-crafted read. If this is an example of what she’s doing now, I’m out. Just predictable tropes strung together with sex that’s supposed to be hot because they talk dirty. No wonder she’s able to churn these out every couple of months.
Just One Night
A great friends to lovers book.
