Now she’s next door and seeing her every day is killing me slowly. I wonder if we can ever get back to being friends. The way she looks at me sometimes, well, let’s just say my hockey stick isn’t the only thing that’s feeling hard these days.

But if she finds out the secrets I’m keeping, forgiveness will be the last thing on her mind.

You like sports romances and brother’s best friend stories? Then you came to the right place!! This book combines two of my favorites tropes.

Flynn finds herself without a place to stay after she found her boyfriend cheating on her. She decides to crash at her twin brother’s apartment. The think is that next to her brother lives Myles, her brother’s best friend and her ex best friend. She had a crush on him when they were younger but because of her parent’s death and what happened that night, she hadn’t seen him for 7 years.

Both her brother and Myles are hockey players. Myles has the privilege to enjoy his life playing the sport he loves and having an abundance of females that want to score a hockey player. However, the minute he sees Flynn again all the emotions he has for her come back to the surface.

They have a connection that only comes when you know someone your whole life. Their chemistry is off the charts and there’s passion to every encounter they have. Their relationship takes a hit before even begin when secrets from the past are being revealed and complicate things. Flynn feels so betrayed and she has the right to be. To be honest, through the book there were some hints that made me suspect what the secret might be, although that didn’t spoil the reveal!

A really good story, with equally cute and sexy moments! I really enjoyed Flynn and Myle’s story and I can help hoping that we may get Oli’s book next!!

As far back as R.C. Stephens can remember she was a sucker for a good romance. Of course there had to be a prince charming even if he ultimately was a dark knight and there had to be a happy ending.

She watched the movie Dirty Dancing way too many times growing up and Jean Claude Van Damme movies too. Go figure!

After years of saying she would write a book one day, she finally put pen to paper and carved out the plot line for what would eventually become the best selling Twisted Series. Now R.C. is just finishing up her tenth book and can’t seem to stop the stories running through her mind. Visit R.C. on her Facebook page to find out what’s new in her life and what releases she has coming up.
