Book Review - Touch and Go by Mira Lyn Kelly

ABOUT THE BOOK


USA Today bestselling author Mira Lyn Kelly cranks up the heat for two lifelong friends whose most secret longings come true in every delectable way.

Vivacious and successful, Ava Meyers is living her dream life, except for one thing: Ever since childhood, she’s been in love with her best friend . . . and she’s never admitted it. Back then, Sam Farrow was a damaged young man with a tough past. Now he’s supremely confident, super-sexy, and totally untouchable—until the night when Sam pretends to be Ava’s boyfriend to save her from some unwanted attention. In a moment of weakness, Ava finds out that a decades-long friendship is no match for blistering sexual chemistry.

After years of denying his own feelings, Sam finds that one amazing night with Ava isn’t enough to chase away all the pent-up fantasies. So he proposes they spend a few weeks driving each other wild, exhausting their every desire, and then return to their perfect platonic relationship like nothing ever happened. But Sam’s plan has one fatal flaw: the part where they give each other up. Because the more they let go of their inhibitions, the more they’re tempted to never go back.

REVIEW


This is the best book I’ve read in a long time.  Mira Lyn Kelly does a wonderful job of taking the story about a woman who has secretly been in love with best guy friend since childhood, and makes it charming, realistic, emotional, and sexy.  The entire book focuses on their relationship, which sometimes can feel slow, but in this case the pace moved at exactly the right speed.  

This is the second book in a series, I had not previously read the first (but will now!), and I had no problems following the story or plot.


Anyone who loves sexy contemporary romances will love this book.


OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
