One fateful night, Toni Langston seduces her best friend, the guy she's been in love with forever. Two problems-he doesn't remember a thing that happened and now she's pregnant. Toni Langston has been in love with Simon, her best friend, for years. The night Simon breaks up with his long time girlfriend, he and Toni make love. Toni is devastated and humiliated when, in the heat of the moment, he calls her by his girlfriend's name. The next morning, Simon remembers nothing of the previous night and Toni is only too relieved not to remind him. Two months later, she discovers she's pregnant. She wants Simon to love her, apart from any obligation he might feel because of the baby. So she embarks on a quest to seduce her best friend, to make him see her as more than a little sister, to make him love her as much as she loves him. It works. Maybe too well. Now when things are perfect, she faces telling him of the secret she's kept.
What I thought:
I just loved this one. I'm not usually fond of novels where the heroine ends up pregnant, but this was well written and engaging. I felt sorry for Toni, both because she fell for a guy long ago and he has yet to realize she's a woman and that in a moment of weakness for them both, she is now dealing with the consequences pretty much alone.
This isn't like the rest of Maya Banks' novels. Yes, there are some steamy scenes, but there is more story than romps in the bed. Which depending on your mood can be a good or bad thing. I thought it was nice to read a book of hers that expands on the relationships. I adore Maya Banks' novels and I was glad to read one that showcased the relationship side.
Hey guys! I'm a big fan of reading and writing. I have been writing my own little reviews on shelfari and decided to try my own blog. I love all kinds of books, mystery, paranormal romance, urban fantasy, young adult, erotica, historical romances and just any romance book.
I own a Kindle and love browsing Amazon for free ebooks as well as getting my favorite authors and series on my portable library system. This has changed the way I read. I have gone to a couple books a month to a couple books a week.
