Book Review - Tempting Her Best Friend by Gina Maxwell

My Thoughts

Aly and Dillon are the best of friends without the benefits. Living next door to each other, they have dinner together almost every night, and spend time on the couch watching reality tv. That's just not enough for Aly anymore as she has been in love with him for a long time. Her original plan was to rope him into going with her to Vegas for a romance convention, but after his reaction she decides instead that it's time to give up on him and she is going to go after her very own cover model to have one of those what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas moments. Upon hearing this plan, Dillon has a comeapart and proceeds to go home to have his very own epiphany. He needs to go to Vegas and get the girl.

Now there is just so much I loved about this book. Who doesn't love a best friend to forever love book? And one written by Gina is golden I tell ya. Golden. She can write the hell out of a romance and don't even get me started on the steamy scenes she writes just way too well. One of the things I love about this book is that she made me laugh out loud on more than one occasion. Loud enough to get looks from my warrior across the room.

A few of the things that made me LOL...

So a guy goes to a romance author event to get his girl and ends up in a Tarzan costume. Wait till you read this...HILARIOUS!

Holy Elvis and Marilyn carchase! Won't even say anymore. You have to experience this one on your own.

Favorite sexy moment involving candy on a stick goes to...

I will never look at a unicorn lolly the same way again...EVER.
 (Gina...my warrior would like to thank you for the candy isle inspiration. A REALLY BIG thank you.)

I give Tempting Her Best Friend 5 hearts!

About the Book

Alyssa Miller is tired of waiting for her next-door neighbor to see her as more than just his best friend. Ready to let off some steam, she heads to Las Vegas for a romance book convention where, if she's lucky, she’ll get down and dirty with one of the sexy cover models.

Dillon Alexander doesn’t do commitment—especially not where his best friend is concerned. She deserves a man who can give her the world, not damaged goods. But when he realizes Alyssa intends to have a one-night stand on her vacation, he hauls ass after her to make sure he’s the one to scratch her itch.

Neither of them expects their explosive chemistry to burn hotter than the lights on the strip, but with a little help from Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, a flamboyant matchmaker, and TSA, what happens in Vegas might not stay in Vegas…
