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…

I adored Katee's In Bed With Mr. Wrong last year, so I was excited to pick up Drew and Avery's story in Falling For His Best Friend. We got to see their scheming side in the first book and we already knew how well they worked together. In this book, we get to see the two realize their feelings of friendship are developing into something more... something that could complicate everything.
I am such a fan of best friends to lovers stories and I really enjoyed this one. Drew and Avery have been friends for so long, but in recent months have started to feel things for the other they know they shouldn't. It all comes to a head when Avery drops the bomb that she wants to have a baby. With her family's medical history being what it is, she's too afraid of letting the chance slip by. Her friends, Bri and Ryan, are supportive of her, having their own baby at home they love and adore. Drew, on the other hand, isn't so keen on this plan. This irrational jealousy bubbles up in him and suddenly he doesn't want her having this baby on her own and he certainly doesn't want some random donor involved. He tells Avery that if she's going to do this, they're going to do it together. He won't let her be on her own and while he himself doesn't feel like kids and a family are ever in his future, he won't risk letting his best friend fail.
I loved Drew for doing this, but at the same time he was really frustrating because he was so hung up on his own fears that he couldn't admit to Avery that he really had developed true feelings for her. I get the whole not wanting to ruin the friendship aspect. Sometimes friends to lovers stories don't work out (I can attest to that), but these two click on a level on a lot of people don't. And holy chemistry. That cop car scene? Sweet baby Jesus that was hot.
This was a cute, steamy story and I enjoyed where Robert took Avery and Drew's relationship. It worked for them and I enjoyed seeing Drew finally admit to himself and Avery that she was what he wants and he'll be damned if someone else raises this baby with her. I also loved seeing Bri and Ryan again and how happy those two are. I am glad we got to see both of these couples get their happy endings.

  1. I'm a big fan for friends to lovers stories too. I will have to look into this one. It does sound like Drew will get a bit annoying, but I am prepared.

  2. Yes! I'm so glad you enjoyed this book as much as I did. I loved Avery and Drew so much in the first book, it was so natural that they were together. Great review lady!

  3. Great review, Jess! I love best friends to more too, and I thought the sex scenes were smoking hot! I just wasn't in love with their whole dynamic - it felt a little off to me at times. But I am really enjoying The Marriage Contract right now!

  4. Sounds like something that I might enjoy. I am going to give the first in series a go.
