Blurb: Zach and Emily have been best friends since high school but Zach wants much more. Emily is the girl of his dreams—and unfortunately taken. Zach knows her jerk of a fiancé isn’t good enough for sweet, perfect Emily, but what can he do? The answer comes in the form of a frantic phone call late one night—Emily is in trouble.
When Emily agreed to go to the Rustler’s Roundup charity auction for her eccentric employer, she never dreamed that she would be the goods auctioned off. Now, standing half naked on stage and being bid on by complete strangers, she’s about to get a lot more charity than she planned on. Luckily for her, Zach rides to the rescue just in time. But in order to free her from the Roundup, he has to do a lot more than bid on her—spanking and sex are on the menu as well.
Will the hot sexual encounter destroy their relationship? Or will they finally become more than friends?
Review: I am a HUGE friends to lovers fan. I snap them up like there is no tomorrow and was uber excited to get my hands on this one. Then I started reading. The plot seemed unable to stick to one goal. While I liked the whole charity gig that Emily got roped into, I think it could have been better with a different hero.
The beginning and the end of this story just didn't feel like, to me, that they were the same story. I think that had they been used in different stories it would have worked much better. I just had a really hard time buying all the things Zach was doing but that's just me. I like my hero's alpha, or not. But I want them one way or the other not bouncing back and forth.
I would like to read another from this author before I make a final decision. Her ability to craft words into vivid images was wonderful, I just don't think this story highlights her talent.
