Book Whisperer's Rating: 

Zoey Stranford might’ve had a crush on the sexy boy next door since middle school, but she’s a woman now, and that crush has turned into a full blown case of lust. So why is it that at twenty nine, her libido decides to ramp into high gear and the only thing she can focus on is the intensely sexy, scorching hot boy next door who is definitely not a boy anymore?

The only problem is that Zoey and Kaleb have been best friends for as long as she can remember. Not to mention, Kaleb and his brothers are working on buying Stranford land to build a new resort, and she’s more than a little hesitant about his intentions.

Kaleb Walker has had his eye on Zoey for close to twenty years, but never before has he considered taking their friendship to the next level, no matter how many fantasies he’s had about her over the years. That doesn’t explain why Kaleb is hell bent on having her – in as many ways as possible.

Kaleb finds himself in a precarious situation. His brothers have nominated him to pursue Zoey’s father about purchasing the land needed to get their new resort off the ground. Finding out that Carl Stranford is on the brink of foreclosure and Zoey might just lose her house and the land, Kaleb now has to convince her to put aside her pride and let him help her.

It doesn’t take long before the flames start burning bright and hot, and the two of them burn up the nights and the days as they explore each other’s forbidden fantasies. But can their friendship survive a business transaction or the new friends with benefits clause? Or will they realize that they’ve been overlooking something much deeper that’s been right in front of them all along?

Yowza!  I drooled through this book in only 4 hours, it was that great.  It really did rock my world on more than one occasion.  Those Walker brothers are going to be the death of me!  All of them ooze sex and I have a feeling I am going to love each and every one of their stories.

If you follow the blog you know that best friends turn to lovers is my ultimate happiness and that is exactly what Kaleb is all about.  This means that this book was one of my ultimate happinesses (is that even a word?)  But what makes this stand out and pale into comparison from all the other similar books is that Kaleb is a little different when it comes to sharing what is his.  Oh yeah, it gets a tad bit naughty. 

I loved the man that Kaleb is in this book.  He is the southern charmed, chivalrous, and polite so that you can bring him home to your Momma without feel too bad but when you get him home….that is all I can say because you know it is going to be dirty and good.

Zooey was a wonderful, feisty character that matched perfectly with Kaleb and the Walker klan.  I liked that she didn’t give into anyone’s crap and was happily content to shovel it right back to them if need be.
