Peek Inside The Best Friend Incident

Stacey Winters is in love with love, but so far, she’s only found Mr. Dud, Mr. Cheater, and Mr. Boring. Even though her best friend Grant isn’t an option, at least being around him offers her a window into the male psyche—and sets the bar high for her future Mr. Right...

Stacey Winters is in love with love, but so far, she’s only found Mr. Dud, Mr. Cheater, and Mr. Boring. Even though her best friend Grant isn’t an option, at least being around him offers her a window into the male psyche—and sets the bar high for her future Mr. Right.

But then she accidentally crosses the friend zone and kisses him, and it starts to feel a little too much like he might be what she’s been looking for...

Grant Phillips doesn’t do relationships. A casualty of the foster care system, he knows people are just looking for a reason to bolt. "No attachments" is his hard and fast rule. There's only one exception: his best friend, Stacey. He refuses to jeopardize what they have.

But now that he knows how good it felt to kiss her, felt the addictive slide of her body against his, Stacey Winters is indelibly stamped onto Grant's brain—and not just as his friend.

He is so screwed.

If you love hella-hot guys, sassy girls, and a sexy romance, then this book is for you! Highly recommend!” –Victoria B., Goodreads

A sweet, humorous, lighthearted read that drew me in from the start and kept me engaged throughout.” –Mags N., Goodreads

“Wow this was so funny! So out rightly sexy from the moment that Stacey climbs in her bed, expecting her boyfriend, only to discover her best friend Grant. It was funny, steamy enough to satisfy any romance reader and engaging enough to be the perfect romantic comedy!” –Charly M., NetGalley
