The second the test-the-sexy-scenes offer landed in my lap, I said yes.
After all, I've been damn curious about a few things I've read in romance novels. Do buttons truly go flying across the floor when you rip off a guy's shirt? Is staircase sex hella hot or does it leave you with a big old bruise mark on your back? And don’t even get me started on all that panty shredding, and whether it even works.
Time to find out as I embark on Project Sexy Scenes Research, at the request of my hotshot book editor bestie.
All I need is a willing scene partner. Enter Tristan, my best guy friend. The witty, tell-it-like-it-is, bearded hottie volunteers for the experiment.
He's also the guy who gave me the most devastating, toe-curling kiss of my life ten years ago. But nothing has happened since then.
And nothing will come between my panties and our friendship now since we have a plan to keep it PG.
But once the buttons start flying, all bets are off..

Definitely One to Read
Peyton and Tristan are great friends, so who better to ask help her try out sexy times scenarios for her blog than the man she trusts most? Yes, there was that unforgettable kiss in college. Yes, he’s an extremely attractive guy with whom she always has a great time. But they’re friends first and foremost and she couldn’t bear to lose their friendship. Too bad their hearts, and other body parts, want more.
Love these Characters
Can I just say up front that I love Peyton & Tristan, the main characters in this Friends to Lovers story?? This is the second book in Lauren’s new Boyfriend Material series, but it’s a standalone with a happily ever after. You’ll just recognize a few other characters if you’ve read some of Lauren’s previous books. The really “fun” part of this book is the set-up of how these two get from point A to point B. Peyton is writing a companion piece to a romance novel...charged with “testing out” some of those standard sexy scenarios. Can you really rip buttons off a shirt? How about taking off your lovers clothes while heading up the stairs? And just how realistic is sex in the bath tub? Who better than one of her best friends to try these scenes with...strictly platonically. I think we all know how that’s going to work out, but it’s a hilarious and fun read to get these two to where we all want them to be. Another winner!
Sweet & sexy romance!
This is a swoon-worthy friends to lovers romance with terrific characters. The lovely Peyton is fresh off a break up and ready to get back out there. She's the owner of her grandmother's lingerie shop and struggling to keep it going in the face of big box competition. Her guy bestie, the hunky restauranteur Tristan, is up to help in anyway he can. He encourages her to start her blog again and when her bestie Amy offers her the opportunity to use her blog as a tie-in to a romance novel, Peyton is all in. She just needs to find the right partner to reenact the sexy scenes from the book to see if they work in real life and then blog about the results. The only guy she trusts is Tristan and he's up for it...he just has to control his longtime feelings for Peyton. He's been in love since college but something always got in the way and he doesn't have time for a broken heart. Tristan is a fabulous hero. He's drop dead gorgeous, a successful business owner and parent to his teen brother. Responsible is his middle name and he's such a grown MAN! Swoon!! And his never ending love her Peyton is so sweet. When things turn steamy during the re-enactments Peyton sees Tristan in a new light and realizes that college kiss was everything. Sizzling chemistry takes the would-be lovers to a great place. It's just a matter of who's going to jump first and tell the other how they feel. This is a quick, easy read with a group of wonderful gal pals and a sweet and sexy romance between a couple of hotties. As usual the writing is fantastic and drew me in right from the start and kept me turning the pages as Peyton and Tristan's relationship goes from a beautiful friendship to a smoking hot romance. I can't wait for the next adventure with this group of fabulous friends that this terrific author has given us. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC.
