Evelyn is a woman who has everything--a successful career as a TV producer, and her best friend—sexy firefighter Owen Hanson—who looks mighty fine as her plus-one to awards dinners and backyard picnics. But something is missing and it’s not just the sex.
Owen Hanson is living the dream—a Chicago firefighter who volunteers at a youth center on the Southside and he’s got his best friend Evelyn—who knows him better than anyone. When Evelyn starts hinting about wanting something more, Owen panics.
Sex changes everything but taking their relationship to the next level surpasses even their wildest dreams. Until Evelyn’s ex-husband shows up and could make even the most perfect couple crash and burn...

I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This was the first book of this series and from this author that I have read. This book could be read as a stand-alone but maybe starting at the beginning to fully understand the individuals of the group and their dynamic wouldn't be a bad idea.
I loved having this book written in my favorite dual POV. Seeing into the characters' minds really help me to connect with them. In this case, it was Owen. Owen and Evelyn have been best friends for years. They are each other's plus to events. Both are divorced (hence the series name Daring Divorcees). Unfortunately Owen's ex-wife cheated on him. Evelyn remains friends with her ex, Donald. After a comment is made by a group member, both Owen and Evelyn really start to see the other with different eyes.
I adored how the author established the characters relationship with each other. How the relationship progress. The little kinks thrown in here and there with Owen's trust issues, really made him seem more life-like. The book read like a movie almost.
This is a sexy read, nothing of the erotica in nature but it may offend some. That being said, I can only recommend this book to someone over the age of 18.
When I met the characters in this series in the second book (since I missed the first), I instantly fell in love. I wanted HEAs for everyone but I also wanted to know so much more about the friendship between Owen and Evelyn.
Owen and Evelyn are the very best of friends. They met after going through divorces and have carried each other ever since. They refuse to cross the line into more than friendship until they can't possibly deny what everyone else has seen since forever, they're perfect for each other.
There was so much to love about this book but the hands down best part is how FIERCE (!!) Evelyn is. She rolls over for no one and I actually cheered out loud for her several times during this story and if I ever got to meet her, I'd be giving her a million high fives. She's so strong even when you would think the strongest would fall apart.
I love this series and can't wait to see which one of this group gets their HEA next!!
