"A beautiful love story!"

Samantha and Thorn have been friends since they were kids, when Thorn and his dad moved in to Samantha's neighborhood. While Thorn has been in love with her since they were three, Sam had no such feelings, treating Thorn like the best friend that he was, until the day she proposed for him to take her virginity. Then, she started to see him in a whole, new different light.

Rosalie Stanton writes a beautiful story of first love. Packed with much emotion and sexual tension of the good kind, the story swept me away with the burgeoning of romantic love between best friends, fraught with all the uncertainties and hopes of a new romance. The sex scenes are sizzling hot and I love the circumstances in which Thorn finally declared his feelings. I agree that it's certainly much better than if he'd declared while they were in bed where the sincerity of his love could've been misunderstood. This way, there was no doubt in Sam's mind that he truly loved her and that he's not just speaking because of the sex. I love this book and the author's voice so much I'm looking forward to her future offerings.

Rating: 5 stars

You and me both, Janna! I love Friends become Lovers theme as well. The book Shana reviewed a few days ago, Playing For Real by Madison Blake, has the same theme as well. And it's awesome. Like Shana, I hope there's a sequel as the characters are so fun and addictive. :) And it's a menage, which I know you love. ;)

Hey, Kayla, thanks for dropping by. Yup, the book's cute. You should read it! It's like falling in love all over again.
