A friends to lovers romance so deliciously seductive and sweet...
By: Cathryn Fox
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5 Review by Kristie K
A friends to lovers romance so deliciously seductive and sweet, Cathryn Fox brings the heat in this Dossier novel…
The third installment of the steamy Dossier Series, Under Pressure follows Reese Scott on her adventure-filled, BFF-funded vacation to South Africa to swim with the sharks…literally. The only odd catch to this vacation, is that her unbelievably sexy best friend Cole Rayburn is along for the ride. Though Reese is thrilled to have Cole's strength and comfort on this adventure, the idea behind these trips was for the girls to meet someone and have unbelievable sex…a little awkward with Cole along. At least, until Reese realizes that her best friend has definitely grown up well…and her thoughts are moving way south of platonic. Little does Reese know that Cole is just waiting for his chance, and when he gets it…sparks will fly.
With each new installment, I love the Dossier Series even more! Under Pressure is my favorite so far…though I may have said that with House Rules as well…hmmmmm. Anyhow, Cathryn Fox totally knows how to write a sexy and fun friends to lovers romance. I was captivated from the first page to the last! Reese isn't really quiet and shy, but she isn’t much for adventure, so this trip to swim with the sharks and see the sights of South Africa is definitely out of her comfort zone. I loved her spunk, her quick wit and adorable personality. Reese has such a big heart, and love for her friends it’s palpable. Her connection to Cole is something most of us only dream of, and when it becomes something more, the chemistry is off the charts. Cole is probably one of my favorite leading men thus far. His heart is so full and pure, with nothing but love for Reese. Their relationship so real, so authentic and true. Needless to say, Ms. Fox has knocked it out of the park again, and I absolutely CANNOT WAIT for the next one…
Friends to lovers
For a novellla, this had maximum impact. It's exactly what I look for when I need something in between longer reads. The author did a fantastic job of relaying a lifetime connection between these main characters in one moment of time. The connection and the heat is felt and you don't question why these friends didn't become lovers sooner. That it was just a matter of the right time for these two. This was a great shortie!
