Avery Moore writes about romance, but she sure as hell doesn’t live it. Blake Patterson has no trouble getting women, in fact as the owner of a popular club, women are practically throwing themselves at him.
They couldn’t be further from each other’s type, but when a solid friendship is formed, little by little the lines become blurred.
In this struggle between friendship and love, the desire between them becomes too much to resist.
What happens when your friend suddenly becomes So Much More?
This book had me laughing out loud at Avery, yelling at Blake for not always thinking clearly and hoping that everything will work out for all in the end!!!
Avery is a little spit-fire, who just happens to be a published book writer of romance with steamy sex scenes. (Too bad her real life is not like her books) Avery has a great sense of humor; she is able to crack a joke in any instance and definitely says what she means without hesitation. Blake loves this about her.
Blake is a self-proclaimed playboy that has no interest in a relationship. He is happy with one night stands and never talking to them again. The connection he forms with Avery is a new territory for him, and it was a great journey to watch.
After their initial awkward encounter at the gym, they meet up again when Morgan (Avery’s best friend) is invited to go to Sean’s club Chrome to hang out. Avery had no idea that Sean and Blake were best friends, or that they were the owners of this club. This chance encounter began a wonderful friendship between Avery and Blake.
I absolutely loved the characters of this book. Avery was a riot, she might have been little, but she definitely knew how to get her point across. Blake was a great guy, gorgeous and nice, what more could you ask for. The friendship that they develop is amazing and so much fun to watch develop throughout the book.
The fact that she was a writer of sexy romance books was just a bonus, especially when Blake finally read one. The fact that it caused fear in his ability to measure up to the men in her book, definitely made me laugh out loud!!! I loved that the author actually had Blake read her book to learn more, because I believe in life if more men would read these books they might learn a little. J Thank you for an amazing read and I can’t wait to see what you have coming out next for the Chrome series.
Taryn discovered her love for books at an early age, spending many hours lost in someone else’s story.
It wasn’t until well into adult hood that she discovered, late at night while the house was quiet, that she had just as many stories inside her just waiting to be let out. Writing has been a way for her to step away from reality and live a bit through her fun and sometimes damaged characters. You will almost always find a Happy Ever After at the end of her stories. She can’t help it, it’s an addiction.
She’s a Southwestern girl living a Mid-Atlantic life with her husband of seventeen years and two incredible daughters who inspire her daily. She is proud to be an advocate for her child with autism, and feels incredibly blessed to be able to see the world through her eyes. Her daughters teach her more than she could ever teach them.
She enjoys reading, writing and spending time with her family, but cherishes those quiet nights after everyone is asleep when she can curl up on the couch with her fifteen year old dog. (Shh, don’t tell…He’s not supposed to be on the couch.)
Keep an eye out for more from her!
