The heroine: Caroline – has been best friends with Cooper since her parents divorce when she moved across the street from her. Caroline is painfully shy and timid. She wants to be a clothing designer but her father was dismissive of that as a career path and so she is afraid to put her designs out there.
The Hero: Cooper – he is a video game coder who works from home. He has been roommates with Caroline since the summer before college and he kissed her once and it didn’t end well so ever since, they have been just best friends and nothing more.
The love story: Caroline has been feeling a bit lonely so she wants to meet someone new. Cooper says he will help her find someone, but a chance encounter between them in the hallway when he is just out of the shower changes the dynamic between them.
This story has so much sexual tension it is crazy. Since the nude encounter, Caroline and Cooper both can’t seem to keep their thoughts away from each other. Things get even worse after they kiss. Cooper has some seriously steamy thoughts about Caroline and you know that he will end up acting those things out because once the pictures are in his head, he can’t go back to thinking about her as just his best friend.
I usually am not too fond of friends to lovers romance, I like to see the first meeting and the romance from the start. However, these two were seriously hot and I liked the fact that they knew each other so well and have been there for each other for years. Of course things don’t go perfectly smoothly but the story was a good one and I loved the tension, the steam and the romance!
