Synopsis from Goodreads
I might be a typical guy, but these last few years, my love life’s been anything but. From crazy ex-girlfriends to one night stands who are stage-five clingers, my relationships go bad faster than the milk in your fridge. The only constant has been my best friend Maggie.
Fresh off a bad breakup of her own, I invite Maggie to my guy’s skiing weekend knowing she needs an escape from reality. But then something funny starts to happen. I start noticing things about her that I never noticed before.
She’s beautiful and doesn’t know it, she’s funny without even trying, and now she’s suddenly single for the first time in forever.
Sharing a hotel room with her proves to be the tipping point in our very platonic friendship. Suddenly I want to put my hands, my mouth, and my … other parts … all over her gorgeous body. I want to claim her, make sure no man touches her ever again. But then her groveling ex shows up, and Maggie’s torn.
Am I ready to screw up the best relationship I’ve ever had for a shot at something more?
The Bed Mate is utterly sweet and romantic including guaranteed warm and fuzzy feelings ♥
Maggie and Sam have been best friends for a long time, although it is plain to see that Sam has some very unfriend-like feelings for Maggie. Unfortunately, Maggie has been in a relationship for as long as he has known her. Not wanting to put her in an uncomfortable position, Sam has consoled himself with being her best friend.
However, all bets are off when Maggie catches her boring boyfriend cheating on her, leading her to accept Sam’s invitation for a mini-vacation in order to clear away the self-doubt that has crept in due to the ending of her long-term relationship.
Sam is the ultimate good guy, I completely adored him. My heart hurt for him a little because of his wait for Maggie to see him as more than just her best friend. However, the wait was more than worth it.
Both Maggie and Sam are a little cautious about the change in their relationship status not wanting to lose the closest person they have in their lives. Yet, the basis of their relationship is so solid, any additional benefits 😉 only add to the depth of the feelings they have for each other.
Fast paced, fully developed, sweet and sexy – you’ll find it all in The Bed Mate.
