Taking the Handoff
When my lifelong best friend asked me if his little sister could crash at my place until she got her feet under her in LA, of course I said yes. I'd do anything for Drew. But I was not prepared for the vixen that showed up at my door looking NOTHING like the girl I remember. Now, I'm falling for the one woman who's completely off-limits to me. I'm trying to behave, I really am, but the longer she stays here, the more tempted I am to take her and make her mine.
I've been desperately in love with Luke Carter for most of my life, but he only ever looked at me like Drew's adorkable little sister. To be fair, I was. But I'm not that awkward girl anymore. Now, I'm a woman on a mission - not just to make my dreams of becoming a singer come true, but also to make Luke Carter see what's been right in front of him this whole time. But the closer we get, and the harder I fall, the more I wonder if he'll ever be able to choose me over his loyalty to my brother.
Taking the Handoff is a steamy standalone sports romance. It is book four in the LA Wolves series. WARNING: This book contains a scene with sexual assault. Read at your own discretion.
This was such an excellent book that I finished it in like three days. I highly recommend it!
Falling for My Best Friend’s Sister
This is the fourth book of the LA Wolves series and it is one of my favorite. Luke is a professional football player who doesn't believe in love and relationships due to his parents’ unhealthy marriage and nasty divorce. The only person he considers a family is his best friend Drew. They have a strong, unbreakable bond and they will do anything for each other. That is why when Drew calls Luke to ask him to help his younger sister Emma out, Luke is all for it. What Luke never expects is the sexy, curvy vixen that takes his breath away?!
Emma is a recent college graduate who decides to finally pursue her passion. Against her parents wishes but with her big brother’s support, she moves to LA to try to make it in the music industry but find herself in a sketchy housing situation. When Drew arranges for her to temporarily move in with his best friend who also happens to be the guy she’s been in love since forever, Emma is nervous.
The storyline is very interesting, filled with lots of drama, undeniable attraction, secrets and angst.
I voluntarily reviewed this book after receiving a free ARC.
Luke’s best friend Drew’s sister Emma has grown up and the sparks fly when she moves into Luke’s place. The characters are engaging and well developed with plenty of chemistry throughout the pages keeping me entertained. Looking forward to reading more.
