4 super stars for TO CLOSE TO CALL!

Kyler Tate has life by the balls...he's beloved by his hometown, voted an All-American football player in college, and now drafted into the NFL. The only thing that's missing is the love of his life, Bree Justice. Bree broke Kyler's heart before he left for college, but he'll be dammed if he's going to LA without his woman. Bree has avoided Kyler every time he's come home from school, but the minute he decides she's done running, she's helpless to resist the pull he's always had. Like magnets coming together, Bree and Kyler will always be drawn to one another, but her life is as a small town Veterinarian, not the girl of some high profile professional athlete. There's no way Kyler can change her mind, right?

TOO CLOSE TO CALL is a novella in the Romancing the Clarksons series, and also a stand-alone addition to the innovative and fun 1001 Dark Nights series featuring sensual and erotic stories by a variety of popular authors inspired by the classic The Arabian Nights tale.

Another winner from Ms. Bailey and the 1001 Dark Nights series! TOO CLOSE TO CALL combines some of my favorite things: football, wicked chemistry and delicious sex! Witness:

"Depends on how good of friends we want to be." One hand lifted to squeeze her hip, slow and possessive, that low voice directly against her ear. "Me, Bree? All due respect, I want to be the kind of friend who takes your panties home in his pocket. The kind of friend who sucks your lower lip until your fingers start fumbling with his zipper. You need a friend like that?" His labored breath matched hers. "Because trust me when I say I'll be your best fucking friend."

Nnnnnngh….so hawt! That quote didn't do justice to the romantic side of the story. Kyler and Bree were totally in sync, one of the most cohesive couples I've read about. The book was well written and sexy as hell, and now I desperately want to check out more books in the series!

Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; no condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; no violence/murder.
