Jay Bradshaw. My boyfriend’s best friend.
He was never supposed to be anything more—until he was.
When my college boyfriend betrayed me and left, breaking my heart, Jay picked a side. He chose me. He stayed, and for the past six years, he’s been my rock, my anchor, my compass…
Now we’ve grown up, finished school, and have careers. Me as a nurse practitioner; Jay as a doctor. He’s been everything I needed, but now I want more. I can’t stop thinking about him, and I’m done hiding it.   
It’s time to find out if he wants me, too. 


A friend. Not a lover. That’s who Mia Waters is to me.
I’ve tried damn hard to make sure our relationship stays that way. I’m the shoulder she leans on, the last one to talk to her before she goes to sleep at night… And after six years, she means more to me than my own family.
The moment I met her, I wanted her. But she belonged to someone else, so I pushed the need down. I didn’t take what I wanted. I’m not that guy. Her happiness meant more.  
Until now. Until she asks me a question that shatters our unspoken boundaries. Have you ever thought about having sex with me? Six years of keeping her at arm’s length, and I can feel myself starting to give in and lose control with her.
I can’t let it happen. There are reasons I didn’t get close. She hasn’t let go of her ex-boyfriend, not really. And she has no idea about the lies I’ve told her.
What if she finds out about me? What if she finds out who I really am?
And what will she do when I leave?


As soon as I read the synopsis for this book I was anxious for it. I loved the premise of this story. Kivrin’s writing was fantastic. The pace of the story was excellent, the feels were there and her writing pulled all of them out you. This was defiantly a page turner.  The characters are well developed and absolutely love-able.

I loved Jay. Loved Loved Loved him! That first scene. You know which one. OMG I died. Like melted into a puddle died. WOW. He got all sorts of hot and drool worthy there.

My only complaint and the reason for 4 stars was this…There was to many scenes with TO MUCH descriptions. I don’t need to know every last thing they are doing in the scene. I have an imagination I can fill in the blanks. Over describing every move the characters make and everything in the scene kills story. Kivrin is a very good writer and she did so good at everything else in this book. It’s just this one tiny thing that needs worked on. Normally I would DNF books with this problem. I just can’t read a book when this is done in it. With this one though Kivrin was doing so well at everything else that I stuck it out and finished it. I’m glad I did. I really enjoyed the story.

I know this is her first book and she will get better with time. I’m looking forward to seeing what else she does and I will read her stuff again.
