It’s so easy being best friends with a gorgeous, talented, charming guy.
Said no woman ever. Except me.
My friendship with Miller is a sure thing — he’s my plus one, my emergency contact, and my shoulder to lean on. He’s also been by my side helping me raise one helluva awesome kid who’s the center of my world.
Nothing will change our easy breezy friendship. Until I have the bright idea to convince him to start a new band with me.
Trouble is, our sizzling chemistry in the recording studio is getting harder to ignore, no matter how risky it might be.
Sing sexy songs with the woman you’ve been lusting after? Get up close and personal as you croon to the woman you’ve wanted for years?
Piece of cake.
Performing with the sweet, sassy and insanely wonderful Ally is like one gigantic obstacle course of challenges for my libido. And my libido is one sexy love song away from kissing her senseless and taking her home.
But, I’m not a serious kind of guy, and she’s not a one-night-stand kind of woman. If we cross the horizontal line, we might risk our sure thing and end up out of tune forever…
Add it on Goodreads!
She sings like a sinner. She sings like an angel. She sounds like whiskey and sugar. I’ve only ever known her for her church-bell voice, but now she’s a glorious mix of dirty and sweet, and I never knew she had it in her.
But I can’t marinate in this change-up. It’s showtime for me.
Grabbing the mic, I dive into my first line as I gaze into those blue eyes of my friend. Only I have to think of her as Honey, so I sing to the new woman about how I can’t do without her, how I need her now.
Something is in the air between us when we sing, something charged. Something that hasn’t been there before. Stage chemistry.
I move closer as if I’m drawn by the pull of gravity that I have no control over. We lock eyes and everyone else fades away. I’m still in shock that I’m loving singing a song with my best friend.
That’s what terrifies me. Especially since we sound good together, and we move well together.
Maybe we even look good together, as we belt out this hot-as-fuck duet, and for the first time we’re not butchering a holiday tune or destroying “Total Eclipse of the Heart” at karaoke. As she moves closer to me, we sing the final chorus like it’s going out of style, and when the music softens, I can’t resist. I finger a strand of her blonde wig, the coconut scent from her lotion floating into my nose.
Reluctantly, I let the hair fall.
Clapping rings loud in my ears.
Jackson, Miles, and Campbell give a standing O. Jackson holds up his phone, pointing to it, letting me know he caught it on video.
“Chemistry,” the guys all shout, practically in unison.
But I’m not supposed to have chemistry with my best friend.
That’s the problem.
“What the hell just happened here?” I whisper to Ally, befuddled.
Her mouth opens, and her eyes go wide, and she blurts out, “I have an appointment. I need to go.”
She takes off, leaving in her wake a trail of chemistry and coconut and confusion.

I’ve read a few of Lauren Blakely’s books the last couple of years and I always enjoy her books. They are the perfect combination of sexy and funny and her characters are something else!
This book isn’t different. I really enjoyed Miller and Ally’s story. Their sense of humor made the book even funnier. Humor is not the only thing they have in common; they both are singers and they both love Ally’s niece who she has taken on as her own daughter. After they start singing together, both their feelings are starting to change and see each other as more than best friends. Their chemistry, both musically and sexually, is off the charts!
A really cute, funny and sexy book you should really check out 😉
