Good With His Hands (Good In Bed, #1). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Good With His Hands by Lauren Blakely

My rating: 5 of 5 stars.

A sexy best friend’s brother romance from bestselling authors Lauren Blakely and Lili Valente! 

I’m the wrong guy for her.

She’s sunshine, and cherry pie. I’m whiskey and fast cars. I’m also keeping one hell of a secret from the woman I’ve wanted for years.

But when I find a list my sister left behind for Ruby, I’ve got no choice but to offer the sexy, big-hearted girl next door both a road trip and a chance.

A chance to discover how big she can dream. 

And if some of those dreams play out in the bedroom? Well, there’s nothing wrong with a few — okay, several — hot nights together as we hit the beach, visit old stomping grounds, and test all sorts of limits, in and out of the sheets.

Seven days, then I’m off, moving across the country, far away from her.

No way can things get complicated in a week. Ruby and I aren’t the kind of dream that has a shot of coming true.

Especially once she learns what I’ve done.

GOOD WITH HIS HANDS is a sexy standalone romance in the Good in Bed series!

The Setting: Brooklyn, New York

The heroine: Ruby Valentine – just finished two years of physical therapy after an accident that nearly destroyed her ability to walk and killed her best friend Claire. The Hero is Claire’s brother and they have helped each other through the pain but always remained in the friend zone. She works for her families Pie Company called Sweetie Pie.

The Hero: Jesse Hendrix – he is an artist and owns an extremely successful car restoration shop in New York. He has restored cars featured in Hollywood movies and is soon expanding his Garage by opening one in Los Angeles.

The love story: The two main characters are attracted to each other but have always remained friends not only due to Ruby being Jesse’s sisters best friend, but since the sister died, he feels he can’t even ask her if it would be OK to fall for her best friend. Now their lives are moving in different directions, since she lives and works in Brooklyn and he is moving to the West Coast.

Jesse knows that Ruby has been sad and feels she is in a rut. He finds a bucket list that his sister Claire left for Ruby while cleaning out her things and decides to help Ruby go through the list so she can start living her best life. In the process, they give in to the growing attraction for each other, though with the knowledge that feelings won’t be involved since Jesse is leaving in two weeks.

There are no other women or other men in this book, though there is a display or jealousy or two. The Hero is a genuinely nice guy and though he has had one night stands in the past, is not a huge player. Jesse is sexy and manly and all the things that make a good romantic Hero. He also can think of nothing else but Ruby.

These two have been friends for years and have been attracted to each other for just as long so there is no insta-love in this story. However, they do think they can start up a friends with benefits type situation for a few weeks without their feelings getting in the way. I guess we all know how quickly that went out the window. I just really liked this couple though and the book was quite steamy so if you like that you will enjoy this one. Sometimes with all the bad boys out there, a good guy is just the thing to hit the spot!

I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
