Gabriel has always seen Nicole as his good friend’s very pretty, but extremely off limits baby sister.
Then a hot summer day and an even hotter discovery pushes them over the lines of friendship, over the lines of unrequited desire, and into each other’s arms.
Will they indulge and move on? Or will this crush turn into something more, something deeper? Something that leaves loose ends begging to be tied…
**#1 Crush is Book One in the Loose Ends series. Each book is a full novel and the series will conclude with Book Three**
Nicole is 21 and is visiting her sister Jackie in NYC for the Summer. Nicole has had a crush on Gabriel Roberts for the longest time. He is her sister’s best friend and roommate. Nicole is visiting her sister, Jackie in NYC for the Summer. One hot Summer day, Nicole enters Gabriel’s room just so she can get his scent into her system. Little did she know she would accidentally watch porn and get herself off on his bed. Oh yeah, good times. Who walks in, yup, you guessed it, Gabriel. He’s stunned, hot and bothered by the little show Ms. Nicole was performing on said bed. In his mind Nicole is off limits (besides, Jackie would have his balls if she knew he was interested in her little sister).
Well the sexual chemistry is palpable to say the least. There was certain flash blacks for the main characters. The book is in both Nicole and Gabriel’s POV.
My problem with this book was that I wanted more of a plot. The author is a good writer, I just wanted more drama and angst between these two. I felt the book rushed a little. The sex scenes were very well written. This is my second time reading Ms. Bennett’s writing. Overall, I do like Kaia’s writing.
*An ARC was provided for an honest review.
Kaia Bennett is a native of New Jersey, a college graduate and U.S. Army veteran who loves music, movies, astrology, tattoos, martial arts, animals and, of course, the written word. She heard the siren call of the writer as a teenage girl, but took her sweet time answering it until she had lived and loved enough to share her work with the masses.
She is an erotic author who loves to write stories with diversity, depth, realism and viscerally hot encounters that flirt shamelessly with the taboo. A lover of all genres and a voracious reader, she aims to write stories that are transformative for her characters and readers alike.
