Kelsey has had a crush on Trent since forever but he is her brother’s best friend plus her best friend’s older brother. Yup, two tropes in one!
She was engaged but broke it iff because her fiance was a workaholic.
Trent has had a crush on Kelsey since forever, but the same applies. Plus he is a workaholic and that is not what Kelsey is looking for in a new boyfriend.
But the attraction between them sizzles and even the thought of her Navy Seal brother or his sister slamming them both can keep these two from having a friends-with-benefits arrangement.
Because both believe the other only wants temporary…
Told in alternate POV’s I really enjoyed this story! There is an epilogue you can read through a newsletter from the author (which should be in the book!).
Best Friend Rule #1: never want the guy’s sister.
Trent Salway is one of San Francisco’s hot up-and-coming-under-thirty bachelors. A highly successful mutual fund portfolio manager, a workaholic, and a ladies’ man, he’s got everything he could possibly want…except one thing.
Physical therapist Kelsey Quaid dumped her ex-fiancé six months ago because she was tired of not even being a distant second to his career. Which is why despite secretly crushing on her big brother’s best friend for as long as she can remember, there’s no way Kelsey can go there. One workaholic in her life is more than enough, thank you very much.
Before Kelsey’s brother leaves on his Navy SEAL mission, he asks Trent one simple request: make sure Kelsey isn’t dating any assholes while he’s away. As Trent does his best to do just this, he and Kelsey spend more and more time together. Sparks fly, as do a few items of clothing, and the next thing they know things are getting physical between them. Now, Trent has to decide what to do about the woman he’s falling for—the one whose brother would take him down faster than he takes down the enemy. And Kelsey will have to decide if Trent is just another workaholic or if he’s decidedly off limits.
