Book Summary: Olivia hates the singles scene, so when her best guy friend, Ian, offers to be her plus one to a series of weddings she has to attend, she agrees. Although she doesn’t want to complicate their lifelong friendship, she can’t pass up the chance to have a steady date without the dating drama. What she doesn’t expect is to now find Ian so incredibly sexy.
When Ian sees his old friend Olivia dolled up for wedding #1, the boyhood crush he once nurtured transforms into smoldering attraction. It doesn’t take long for their no-strings arrangement to turn physical. But as Olivia’s desire to stay “just friends” becomes clear, Ian’s feelings are deepening. In the time they have together, how will Ian convince Olivia that one plus one can make for a lifelong pair?
Review:I absolutely loved this short story. Olivia is tired of dating Mr. Wrong over and over again–although the descriptions of her bad dates are absolutely hysterical and sadly pathetic at the same time.
She’s invited to no less than four weddings, and she doesn’t want to go dateless. The answer to her prayers arrives in the form of Ian, the younger brother of her best friend, who offers to be her plus one. She’s known him since they were kids; that won’t be awkward, right?
What Olivia doesn’t know is that Ian has been harboring a serious crush since his teens, and he’s turned into one sexy man–and she’s just now realizing this.
The building of their relationship is sweet and fun–a little achy, too, as Olivia catches up with Ian’s feelings. But even the little ache is worth it.
Oh, and did I mention sexy? Brighton Walsh knows how to write a hot and fun sex scene with just the right amount of smut. I’ll be looking forward to what she has in store for us next!
