When time is not on your side and your best friend wants more than you can give, how do you focus on the future when the present is so complicated?
After receiving some devastating news, Krissy is determined to make her last chance count. There is no one more perfect to help her reach her goal than her best friend Johnny. He's seen her at her best and worst, but what she needs from him now might be too much to ask for. No matter what happens, Johnny will always be an integral part of her life and that of her yet-to-be-conceived baby. Even after delivering the shocking news and receiving fair warnings from her friends, Krissy uses subtle seduction of the mind and body on Johnny until he agrees. Her biggest fear could be realized if she isn't careful to keep feelings out of the equation.
Johnny would do absolutely anything for Krissy. What she's asking of him now is no exception, but what he wants from her in return puts him in a position for possible heartbreak. Regardless, he moves forward with Krissy's plan because he can't stand the thought of someone else coming between them. And he immediately sets out to make sure his priorities are in order to care for Krissy and the baby. Only one problem remains, getting the love of his life to realize a commitment won't break them.
Ms. Waters brilliantly wove real life situations with plenty of emotional depth and eroticism that will pull readers into the story from the start. The world is a contemporary setting of close-knit friends that live adult yet carefree lives until a sudden shift in the balance of Krissy's life forces her to examine the future. Johnny and Krissy's incredible journey is both exciting and frustrating, yet completely unforgettable. An original friends-to-lovers story in the erotic romance genre that I was sad to see end.
Although there were a few times when it wasn't clear which character was speaking, the dialogue is humorous and plentiful. This aids the fast paced development and flow of the storyline. The secondary characters are colorful and offer comical breaks during the intense emotional roller coaster that Johnny and Krissy are on. Each of the characters offers different levels of maturity, which combined uniquely creates the "six-pack".
My first read by Ms. Waters left an impression that is far from fading, which has me seeking out her other works. This is a must read for anyone who enjoys reading heartfelt erotic romance.
