Alyssa Miller is tired of waiting for her next-door neighbor to see her as more than just his best friend. Ready to let off some steam, she heads to Las Vegas for a romance book convention where, if she's lucky, she'll get down and dirty with one of the sexy cover models.

Dillon Alexander doesn't do commitment-especially not where his best friend is concerned. She deserves a man who can give her the world, not damaged goods. But when he realizes Alyssa intends to have a one-night stand on her vacation, he hauls ass after her to make sure he's the one to scratch her itch.

Neither of them expects their explosive chemistry to burn hotter than the lights on the strip, but with a little help from Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, a flamboyant matchmaker, and TSA, what happens in Vegas might not stay in Vegas...

3.5- 4 What Happens in Vegas Stars

To love someone is to know fear. Gut-wrenching, soulcrushing fear. Fear that your love won't always be enough. Fear that something terrible could rip them away from you. There are dozens, hundreds of scenarios, but they all come down to the same thing: when you l

Tempting her Best Friend, was a really enjoyable, sexy read. There were a few giggles thrown in for good measure and as usual Gina Maxwell's sassy writing style pulls the reader into the adventure.

Did you read the blurb on this book? It COMPLETELY hooked me.
I read this book in one sitting - couldn't put it down. Maxwell is a spot on author for me every time. She is one that I can always count on to entertain me for a few hours.

This was short, really cute and perhaps very silly. The story-line was pretty common and predictable but the author did so well in writing it that I couldn't help but give it a full 5 stars!! I especially loved how her characters always did the right things in my opinions.

I have read every one of Ms. Maxwell's novels and in each one her writing talent shines. In this novel, her humor is at it's best.

Aly and Dillon are the best of friends without the benefits. Living next door to each other, they have dinner together almost every night, and spend time on the couch watching reality tv. That's just not enough for Aly anymore as she has been in love with him for a long time. Her original plan was t ...more

Gina is one of my favorite authors. She sure knows how to write romance. Like all of her other books, she has a hit on her hands with Tempting Her Best Friend. It’s fun, flirty, romantic, steamy, has great characters and little angst. It’s the perfect quick read that you won’t be able to put down.

Review by Allison East

This book was a fun, sexy read that centered around two best friends in love with each other- but neither one of them knowing it!

Gina Maxwell always has the sexiness down pat- I love her books. There really hasn't been a book I have read by her that I didn' ...more

Your family and it's history does not define who you are.

Dillon Alexander grew up with a father who couldn't handle marriage. His father would always say, "This time is different" but just being the same. Dillon also grew up believing that being in a long term serious relationship wasn't in his DNA. ...more

By Nicola August 07, 2014

With a title that gives a huge hint at what to expect, Tempting Her Best Friend was a great short sweet read from Gina L. Maxwell with a good dose of sexy. Novella's often leave me wanting more, but this didn't - Alyssa and Dillon didn't need any more and it's set things up nicely for for more in th ...more

I will admit, I’m late to the Gina Maxwell bandwagon. I had no ideal what to expect. Well, I should have known that the book was going to pack some heat. I didn’t expect to laugh so much.

So I have to preface this review with I am totally a sucker for a romance story between boy and girl BFFs. In my opinion you don't get to be BFF with a boy and not hold some type of love and if you add in attraction to the equation than it makes for a steamy relationship. In this story Alyssa and Di ...more

Sometimes you just need a really feel good book that isn't full of too much drama or angst.

I love friends to lovers stories and this one was great. Bff Alyssa and Dillon have been friends since they were 6 and 8. They've been in love with each other for forever but due to both having family histories of not so great relationships, they keep those feelings to themselves. Alyssa finally dec ...more

I love a good friends-to-lovers story. When you find one that's hot enough to make your toes wiggle, gives you a good laugh and makes you sigh at the end, you've got a winner. I loved the way the author brought the back-bone out in Alyssa. Sure, she was sad when she came to grips with the fact that ...more

Her debut novel, Seducing Cinderella, hit both the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists in less than four weeks, and she’s been living her newfound dream ever since. When she’s not reading or writing steamy romance novels, she spends her time losing at Scrabble (and every other game) to her high school sweetheart, doing her best to hang out with their teenagers before they fly the coop, and dreaming about her move to sunny Florida once they do.
