Alice Bennett has been holding a torch for her older brother’s best friend, Nate, for more than a decade. He’s a hotshot TV producer who travels the world, never staying in San Francisco for too long. But now he’s in town and just as tempting as ever… with a bossy streak that makes her weak in the knees and a smile that melts her defenses.
As a successful restaurant owner, Alice is happy with her life. She loves her business and her family, yet after watching her siblings find their happy ever after, she can’t help feeling lonely sometimes—but that’s only for her to know.
Nate has always had a soft spot for Alice. Despite considering the Bennetts his family, he never could look at her as just his friend’s little sister. She’s a spitfire, and Nate just can’t stay away. He loves making her laugh… and blush.
Their attraction is irresistible, and between stolen kisses and wicked-hot nights, they form a deep bond that has them both yearning for more.
But when the chance of a lifetime comes knocking at his door, will Nate chase success even if it means losing Alice, or will he choose her?
“Dating is so exhausting. Going out with so many incompatible people while hoping to find the one is like a less violent version of The Hunger Games.”
“We’ve always had a push-and-pull dynamic, but this is something else entirely. And it feels dangerous. But then again, from carbs to sugar to Nate, I’ve always liked things that are bad for me.”
“I love you. For years, I wasn’t feeling at home anywhere. Now I feel at home whenever you’re with me. You’re my home, Alice.”
As always Hagen delivered another book in The Bennet Family series that manages to be both sweet and seductive, with little hints of trouble; like always. This is book 6 in the series with there being a total of 9 books overall, 3 more to go!
This book follows Alice (Bennett) and Nate. Alice has had a crush on Nate since they were little and when he comes to town on business, its hard for her to stay away. Nate has the same problem and when he decides to pursue her, sparks fly. This is an NSFW like all the other books in this series and just like the other books, it’s a stereotypical romance novel. So, if you don’t like those then stay away! I personally enjoy reading books like this sometimes because they are so easy to get lost in the world of the characters.
I don’t think there is anything I didn’t like about this book. It met my expectations and considering it’s the 6th book in the series, I already knew what to expect and wasn’t disappointed.
I am looking forward to the last 3 books in this series and am interested to see how Hagen continues to interweave the stories together and ties up the ending. Until next time, happy reading!
