Can Rachel grab his attention with a simple proposition?

Rachel Kramer is tired of hearing about Paul’s sexual exploits. He’s the guy she’s been in love with her whole life, and he’s also her brother’s best friend. They’re friends, but she wants more. She wants to know if his feelings are the same as hers—and she’s tired of being a virgin.

Paul has stayed away from his best friend’s little sister because he was warned away. He’s been part of the Kramers’ life for as long as he can remember. Rachel has always been the love of his live, but he loves her from afar.

Her proposition soon leads to something more. He starts to teach her about sex, but that soon changes. Paul is in this for the long haul. He’s waited for her for a lifetime. No more waiting. Rachel will be his.

But what will happen when her brother comes back to town and one of Paul’s exes starts to make waves? Can their love survive, or will their time be over?

 

Review:  Propositioning Her Brother’s Best Friend by Sam Crescent is not part of a series but I do with it was.   I chose this book because I enjoy reading Sam Crescent’s books. I also chose this book to see how Ms. Crescent would spice up they fairly typical story premise.

Rachel is a woman that knows what she wants and is strong enough to go after it. Rachel has been in love with Paul for a while but him being her older brothers best friend put a damper on going after him. Rachel has made the decision to go after him. She is tired of being a virgin and she wants Paul to be her first. Rachel strikes me as a strong woman who know what she wants and goes after it.

Paul is Rachel’s brothers, Mitch’s best friend. While he is attracted to Rachel, he respects his best friend’s wishes to stay away from her. Paul is older than Rachel is and while he is in love with her and it shows he is willing to do what he thinks is best regardless of what he wants.   Paul is someone that you respect. He makes the hard choices, even if it is not what he wants.

The sex scenes were scorching.   I loved seeing how Paul struggled to do the right thing. I found this book well written with thought-provoking and appealing characters. The only issue I had with the book was it was not long enough. All the events went quicker than I would expect. Overall, this was a great story. I hope there is a sequel.
