(A Forbidden Romance)
"One step. That’s all it would take to close the distance between us and take you into my arms, into that bed. But then there’s no going back."Good story, but a bit predictable. Also a bit rushed at the end with the proposal, especially after the author had Emily flipping out and yelling at Drake.
After their parents got married, Drake and Emily became the best of friends. They shared everything - their secrets, their hopes, their dreams for the future. The one thing Emily couldn’t share with Drake was the truth about her growing attraction to him. She always thought there would be more time. But then their world came crashing down around them, and Drake vanished… leaving Emily alone to pick up the pieces of their broken home.
Five years later, Emily is struggling to pay her law school tuition, and lands a coveted job as a summer associate at a high-powered law firm. With a promising career ahead of her, she’s finally ready to forget about the boy she grew up with and move on with her life. So when Drake suddenly shows up and reignites her feelings for him, will she be able to resist the hold he still has over her heart? Or will she risk everything for a forbidden romance with man she’s loved for so long?
Maybe it's because I read 'heavier' novels with more graphic sex scenes, but I felt extremely let down with the scenes in this book. It's was almost as if the author was nervous about writing more detailed and graphic scenes.
If you want to pick up a copy for yourself, it's available from Amazon for $2.99.
I would recommend this book, but don't expect your kindle to be steaming from the sex.
WOULD RECOMMEND: Yes.
