She’s a challenge he can’t afford to lose…

Navy SEAL Steven Thomas has only ever been able to count on three things: waking up in the morning, going to sleep sometime during the night, and Lauren Brixton. She’s been his best friend since grade school, and what they have is the only relationship he’s managed not to ruin.

Until one drunken night puts that all in jeopardy.

Lauren’s watched Steven flit from one-night stand to one-night stand, seemingly not interested in something more. So when the long-ignored attraction between the two of them blows up in their faces, she does the only thing she can—she pretends she doesn’t want him. But all’s fair in love and war, and Steven’s not about to lose the only person in his life who matters…

(I wrote a review for this one and lost in somehow. So here I am trying to recall what I have written the first time I typed it on my computer - :D)

It’s a familiar plot that never gets old. Best friends falling in love have been one of my favorites, who better else to trust your heart with than the person whom you can trust thoroughly. Navy Seal Steven Thomas and Lauren Brixton have been best friends for too long that they knew each other’s quirks and all. What they didn’t expect is that one night, sparks would just ignite, and they have crossed the boarders. Things would never be the same again.

They were just epic together, I guess it’s pent up attraction + lust = mighty explosion right there. I love it when they’re together. It was like they were so meant to be (in and out of bed), although they were trying to fight it at first. But no one understands him better or her better than the other.

Steven Thomas hated liars – and every type of lies, even white lies. You might think that he’s just overreacting, but once you know his story, you’d realize that his hatred for it goes deeper. So, it might irked me a bit about his actions with regards to Lauren (even with a valid reason on her side), but I understood. Good thing, he was able to realize his mistake and was able to rectify it.

Nevertheless, I was glad to see Holt and Lydia as well. I still love the both of them – they were causing some trouble for our love birds in the story, but they brought loads of fun too with their meddling.

It’s a story about love, friendship and trust. It’s a short, sexy and entertaining read that can lit up your readers and your sheets.
