The BookWhisperer's Rating: 

Avery Yeung’s biological clock just went off early. Thanks to her family’s medical history, she’s running out of time to get knocked up. And the only guy within donating distance? Her overprotective—and irritatingly hot—best friend. So clearly she needs an anonymous donor…

Anonymous donor? Over Sheriff Drew Flannery’s dead body. While daddyhood will never be in the cards for a man with his past, Drew won’t let Avery shop for a “popsicle pop.” He’ll do what’s right for his best friend by doing his best friend. But only if they do it properly.

But there’s nothing “proper” about it. Between the bed, the kitchen counter, and against his squad car, Avery and Drew are having the hottest sex ever. They can’t get enough of it—or each other. And without knowing it, they’ve crossed the one line that could ruin their friendship forever…

ECCKKK! Best friends who turn into lovers are the best.

I loved the fact that Drew was dead set against Avery choosing anyone but him.  He has been there for Avery since they were young so why wouldn’t he be there for her now when she wants to have a baby?  And when he gets her to agree that he is the best option, some hot times ensue. 

Avery and Drew are great together as best friends and in-between the sheets but they find there is some awkwardness in that in-between frame when they aren’t being friends and aren’t being lovers.  Reading them struggle through this awkwardness was a delight because they tried to be so cool about it but just blundered through their interactions – it made me laugh. 

But things got real towards the end of the book when true feelings came out and apprehensions came forefront. Nothing seemed to work properly after this point and it seems that disappointment follows our two characters around like a black cloud.

Luckily, Drew’s brother steps up and tries to help mend Avery and Drew’s relationship before it crumbles to pieces.
