Sometimes HEA takes a back seat to life goals
I’ve been listening to the new audiobook for this book all week.
On one hand, I love the story. Friends to lovers. Slow burn. Sexy, single minded hero. Smart, sassy, guarded heroine.
Knox and Emery meet cute when Em’s campus map (because she’s a transfer) blows into Knox’s face. And so starts their dance. Knox wants more than friendship but he agrees to her wishes. Mind you, she wants more too but she doesn’t totally trust anyone with her heart. Knox and Emery become great friends and he gets under her skin. She lets him in. They date and lots of everything but penetration, they can’t keep their hands off each other. Not as smooth a path as it may seem though.
Witty, sweet, hot, and with lots of feels. What happens when you want the best for your friend?
Oh, did I mention he’s the hottest thing on the school baseball team? Expecting to get drafted to the big leagues? That the team locker room is a legendary location on campus? That if you get a ‘golden ticket’ to the locker room, you and the guy are destined to be together forever.
It isn’t a slam dunk HEA. Which is what makes the story hook me. I like a bit of angst.
I enjoyed the performance by the female narrator but I will admit the male narrator’s voice annoyed the heck out of me. His fake Texas accent drove me nuts. Also, I really wish they’d do more duet narration because I hate when the men do women’s voices. The women don’t bother me as much when they do men. But the story kept me in.
I received a review copy. I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
