Unwilling to give up the Double C Ranch, she starts to set her eyes towards the eligible men in town, with little luck in finding a man she can stand for a minute let alone a year. Until she sets eyes on the new veterinarian and enlists the help of her womanizing best friend, Jake, to help.Jake Hansen is a single guy who likes his women pretty and uncomplicated, with no plans to settle down anytime soon. When he decides to help Rand hook her man, he has no idea the effect watching Rand change would have on him. Especially when she starts letting her gorgeous brown hair down and showing off a body he didn’t even know she had. Before too long, Jake isn’t just lusting after his best friend, he’s feeling downright possessive. But when it comes down to the wire, will he get over his issues and step up to the alter…or lose the only woman he was ever meant to love?
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a good friends to lovers story. I liked that Rand and Jake are best friends, and even when they start to feel a strong physical attraction to one another it doesn't take away from their playful friendship and snarky banter with one another. I like that even with all the confusion about their situation they try to make sure their friendship will remain in tact no matter what happens. Both of these characters are very frustrating at times, and I wanted to shot at them to just stop acting so stubborn and be happy already. Their physical chemistry is definitely intense, and the sexy stuff in this book is very sexy. I loved watching Rand open up and discover her own sexuality, and Jake finding out how awesome sex can be with someone he really cares about. I would recommend this book, and I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
