Is it love, or just a little harmless sex?

Max has always been Anna’s knight in shining armor. But Max has always seen her as a charming, and very sexy, little sister. Until Max’s cold fianc dumps him, Anna unloads another of her many conquests and she invites him over for margaritas and Mexican food. Too much tequila, too much flirting, and too many years of fighting the attraction-Max loses control and has mind-blowing sex with Anna on her couch. And in her shower. And in her bed. When the sun rises the next morning, both of them must face that their night together is just the first of many. For Max, he knows he wants Anna forever, but convincing a commitment-phobe like Anna is no easy task. For Anna, she can’t believe she has finally slipped beneath Max’s steely self-control. He is every woman’s dark, wet fantasy come true. But what happens when the Max pushes Anna for more than just A Little Harmless Sex?

Warning: Explicit sex

Review: Max and Anna have been friends their whole lives and each have been harboring a crush on the other since a harmless little kiss while Anna was still in high school.  However, their whole relationship changes after they have a little too much to drink while commiserating over their recent break ups.  And what looks to be A Harmless Little Sex ends up tossing everything Max and Anna thought, out the window.

I love a well written friends to lovers story.  And that’s what we get here.  Max and Anna grew up together as their parents are friends. Max is a successful business man, but perhaps a little too staid.  He’s coming off a loveless engagement and is just wanting to spend some time with his best friend.  And Anna, a business owner in her own right, is a free spirit who hasn’t had a relationship last much longer than a month — with the exception of her friendship with Max.  So, when alcohol flows freely and walls come tumbling down… well, their relationship will never be the same.

Get out the fan and be ready to use it during some very spicy love scenes.  Max and Anna burn up the pages as they overcome insecurities to find their Happily Ever After.  I’m totally looking forward to continuing to read Melissa’s Harmless series.
