Series:  Wedding Favors Book #3

Author:  Boone Brux

Genre:  Romance, Contemporary

Blurb:   When Joya Bennett wakes up after her brother’s wedding, half-naked and lying next to her lifelong crush, she’s mortified. OMG, did she try to jump his bones? Worse, did she succeed? Intending to lay low and housesit for her brother until the embarrassment fades, she sneaks away before he wakes up.

What she didn’t plan on is having company.

Lincoln Fisher doesn’t do relationships, but if he did, his friend’s little sister would be the one to tie him down. Good thing Joya had one too many drinks during the reception or he’d have crossed a line. Her brother would kill him if he found out all the places Linc wanted to kiss the sexy, auburn-haired beauty.

And now they’re stuck in the same house. For two weeks.

She’s off-limits. And he needs to keep it that way, even if the heat building between them is hot enough to blow off the roof…

Thoughts:  Honestly, this is a really good friends-to-lovers book in which both Joya and Lincoln have been crushing on each other for years.  Unfortunately, things between them are complicated – Joya is the ‘best friend’s little sis’, and Lincoln is the ‘best friend’s older brother’.  My main complaint – Lincoln was into Joya, he kind of manipulated events a little bit so that they would be stuck in close contact for the duration of the two weeks…yet on the other hand he had a almost careless attitude about it that just left me feeling a little distanced from the story.  If there had a been a bit more connection on his part and fascination with Joya then I would have just loved it that much more.  Other than that, I would rate this one a little high on my choices for a friends-to-lovers book…J
