Add to Goodreads:
Nate Reynolds is everything I shouldn’t want. Aside from being my best friend’s older brother, he’s a cocky, smooth-talking, panty-dropping playboy of a cop. And yet, I’m helplessly drawn to him.
His charm and good looks reduce me to a fumbling, mumbling teenaged version of myself, which pretty much guarantees that nothing will ever come of my silly crush.
Until the night of my best friend’s wedding.
Jenny Jones is the definition of innocence. She’s also my little sister’s best friend, making her
completely off limits. She’s a forever kind of girl with hearts in her eyes, where I’ve always been more of a love ‘em and leave ‘em kind of guy.
Until a night spent between the sheets with her has me questioning everything I thought I wanted.
I tried my hardest to stay away, but you know what they say about the best intentions …
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
Oh, I loved Best Of Intentions! Jenny is full of fire, sassy and self-confident. Nate is a sexy cop, but gentle and sweet and considerate and kind. She’s been harboring a crush on Nate, the older brother of her best friend Natalie, for years, and the night of Natalie and Alden’s wedding, Jenny makes her move.
Nate doesn’t do relationships, and Jenny doesn’t do one-night stands. She knows what she’s getting into, but when Nate keeps coming back for more, Jenny is getting all kinds of mixed signals. She finally puts her foot down when it comes to not being Nate’s booty call, and they put each other firmly in the friend zone. Naturally, that is when Nate realizes that he’s envisioning a future with Jenny in it, but will the scars of his past prevent him from grabbing onto a future?
I loved these two together. They balanced each other out, their banter was witty, and they were wonderfully written characters. The heat level was just hot enough, and there were plenty of sweet moments between them that had nothing to do with the bedroom. Oh, and little Tatum! That child steals the show!
I had not read Best Laid Plans (Natalie and Alden’s story) previously, so there were a few references made to that book that I was in the dark about, but none of that took away from my enjoyment of Nate and Jenny’s story. I will be going back to read that one now! And I really hope that Nate’s partner gets his own story, because I want to know more about him!
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
With the very tips of my fingers, I drag them down her arm to her elbow. I wrap my hand around her and pull her impossibly closer. Her head nestles against my chest as we sway to the music.
I keep her on the dance floor for at least four songs, unwilling to let her go. Thank God, they were all slow, because I don’t think I’m ready to really feel her move. Even now, with us merely rocking back and forth, her body feels so damn good pressed up against mine—and don’t even get me started on the way she occasionally presses her nails into my chest.
On song five, my luck runs out. The bass thumps low as she spins and presses her back into my front. Jenny may struggle to talk around me, but her body is saying all the things her words don’t. She swivels her hips as the tempo climbs, and the semi I’ve been sporting is in real danger of rivaling the damn tent the reception is being held in.
Seemingly unaware of my mental—and physical—struggle, Jenny keeps right on grinding her ass into me. Deciding to go with it, I palm her hips and move with her. My rhythm isn’t quite as good as hers, but we’re in sync enough for me to know we would be on-fucking-fire if we were doing this dance between the sheets instead.
Right, because that’s what I need to be thinking about right now.
