Overall I liked the story. I’m a total sucker for a “friends become lovers” story. This story was only 85 pages so it felt like I came in at the middle of the story. Since the H/h have known each other since 3rd grade I guess there was no need for the whole getting to know each other lead up before the action starts. Speaking of the action…the love scenes were hot but admittedly I expected more BDSM elements based on the synopsis. The hero, Gabe, is described as having ‘darker urges’ and ‘liking it rough’ but except for one scene with a riding crop and some hair pulling everything was pretty vanilla, IMO.
Rating: 3.5 stars
