In a novel thatâs perfect for fans of Abbi Glines and Jessica Sorensen, USA Today bestselling author Lauren Layne delivers a sexy take on the timeless question: Can a guy and a girl really be âjust friendsâ?
When Parker Blanton meets Ben Olsen during her freshman year of college, the connection is immediateâand platonic. Six years later, theyâre still best friends, sharing an apartment in Portlandâs trendy Northwest District as they happily settle into adult life. But when Parkerâs boyfriend dumps her out of the blue, she starts to wonder about Benâs no-strings-attached approach to dating. The trouble is, even with Ben as her wingman, Parker canât seem to get the hang of casual sexâuntil she tries it with him.
The arrangement works perfectly . . . at first. The sex is mind-blowing, and their friendship remains as solid as ever, without any of the usual messy romantic entanglements. But when Parkerâs ex decides he wants her back, Ben is shocked by a fierce stab of possessiveness. And when Ben starts seeing a girl from work, Parker finds herself plagued by unfamiliar jealousy. With their friendship on the rocks for the first time, Parker and Ben face an alarming truth: Maybe they canât go back. And maybe, deep down, they never want to.
