Blurb
My best friend made damn sure I knew the rules. His sister was strictly
off limits.
UNTIL NOW.
KALI
Growing up it was always the three of us. Me,
my twin brother, Kyle, and our best friend, Aiden. We were inseparable all the
way through high school.
Did I picture myself with Aiden from the first
moment I laid eyes on him back when we were eight? Hell. Yes. I fell in love
with his soul that day. But he was always more Kyle’s friend than mine. And
Kyle made damn sure we both know the rules.
I was strictly off limits. Forever.
But now Kyle is gone. Dead from a freak
accident. And Aiden is still here. Looking hot as hell in his grown-up body.
Looking sexy AF with those tattoos all over his muscular chest. Sad and in need
of comfort.  Just like me.
AIDEN
Every time Kyle caught me lusting after his
twin sister, Kali, he reminded me of the rule. “You were my friend first.”
If you want to get technical about it, I was
Kali’s friend first, not Kyle’s. But that’s not how he saw it. One rule. That’s
all we had between us. Just one. Stay away from my sister.
All these years I’ve honored that. I never
broke his trust. Until now.  Because he’s dead. He left us. And being
with Kali is the only thing that makes the pain go away.
I want Kali. I want to marry her, and have kids
with her, and keep her in my bed forever.
But I want Kyle’s blessing too. And that’s
something I’ll never get.

Excerpt

Kali sighs a little. Her shoulders slump and her head lowers
with them. “I’m not using you,” she says.
“Good,” I say. “Because I’m not using you either.”
“I’ve always liked you. And if you’d like to talk about that
someday, we can. But…” She looks at me. Places her hands on the sides of my
face. Blinks twice. “Not tonight, OK? Can we just not think too hard about it?”
It, meaning the sex. Or maybe the funeral. I’m not sure.
I decide to say nothing in response. I’m drunk, I’m sad, I’m
horny, and I’ve got Kali Anderson sitting in my lap.
And we’re naked.
“Come here,” I say, placing my hands on her head. “I want to
kiss you for a while.”
She smiles into the kiss that comes next. It’s a nice kiss.
A slow kiss. One where our mouths fit together perfectly, and move just the
right way, and there’s nothing awkward or distracting about it. It’s just nice.
After a little bit of that I find myself thinking too hard
again.
Maybe slow and careful is a bad thing? Maybe what we really
need tonight is something hard, and angry, and quick?
She reaches down between her legs and begins playing with
herself again. Rubbing her pussy with the flat tips of her fingers as she
stares into my eyes.
Yeah. Slow and careful is for another night.
I reach down and take my cock in my hand. Pulling and tugging
on it. I’m already fully erect but there’s something intimate about
masturbating in front of someone. And doing it together is even hotter.
Her other hand rests on my shoulder and a chill rises up my
spine.
This girl. This pretty thing I’ve known almost my whole
life. She is the dream girl. She is the one I’ve always wanted. She might even
be the one I’ve always loved.

Review

Kyle and his twin sister Kali have been best friends with Aiden since they were eight years old. The only rule that Kyle made is that Kali and Aiden could never be more than friends and Aiden has never crossed that line despite the attraction he felt for her.

Now Kyle has passed away and the other two in the trio are left reeling. Unable to make sense of the situation they seek solace and comfort in each other and the feelings that they have never acted upon are now stronger than ever. Will they allow Kyle’s rules to keep them apart or will he be the one to bring them together?

This is an emotionally heartbreaking and heartwarming story. Kali and Aiden are meant to be but getting there will require them to heal from the grief that is engulfing them both. This story encompasses every emotion from tears to laughter and the chemistry between them is enough to make you swoon. This is a friends to lovers story that was years in the making.
