????? ??? ????:

As I search for a fresh start, a friend convinces me to move to his small town. Considering I don’t have a place to live, his little sister offers me her spare room.

She’s every man’s dream—witty, down to earth, and gorgeous as hell—too bad she’s off-limits. Unspoken words and stolen glances have me eager to please her in all the forbidden ways. My broken past makes it hard to open up, however, she inspires me to face my demons and be the man she deserves.

I shouldn’t fantasize about my roommate, but it’s impossible when Everleigh’s sleeping next to me—her lips whispering my name.

Forcing You Away by Kennedy Fox
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Before I get into why i gave this 4.5* I’d like to start with my eyeroll: My big eyeroll was her way of pushing his buttons when he refused to give into their attraction and she trying to make him jealous. That was a big NO-NO for me. She was my spirit animal up until this point. This dimed the shine a little… But just a little 🙂

Now let’s talk about what I did like; their friendship. It was so genuine and sweet. The chemistry was just waiting to boil over and when it did I swear I felt my fingers burn.

I found it cute the way they spent all of their time together but refused to make a move unit It became unbearable to not touch each other. The banter was funny and easy going despite her not having much of a filter.

The mystery who is following them is making me crazy but there are many that could be after them so I’m super excited for book 2 because these two need more time together to feel happy in each other’s arms and prove to themselves that their love is worth fighting for.
