Jacqs is a twenty-eight year old woman caught up in an on again, off again relationship with Bond, who is her best friend and the one who causes her the most heartache. She succumbs, yet again, to his powerful charisma, but vows not make it into more than it is, a great night of sex.
Bond, too sexy for his own good, wants Jacqs for himself as he “dates” his way through the female population of South Florida. He selfishly doesn’t see the conflict of interest.
Red, Bond’s best friend, has watched Bond take Jacqs for granted for way too long and soon stakes his own claim on her.
Will Red and Jacqs budding relationship pull apart their tight-knit group of friends and will Jacqs survive being Stuck In Between.
This was definitely not what I was expecting when I started reading. Ok, the first part was. I totally felt for Jacqs, Bond was her best friend, but he was also sleeping his way through the city. Bong has issues, and really, who doesn't? But using your best friend like he had been for years, so not cool. I thought Bond was an ass for the way he treated Jacqs, then expected her to come back to him whenever he wanted. When Jacqs discovers that instead of hating Red, she has an instant attraction to him the first time he ever touches her since they met. Red is upfront about everything that he feels and wants from Jacqs. He wants her and has for a long time. He's just not waiting anymore for Bond to get his shit together and stop hurting Jacqs like he always does. I've got to say I really liked Jacqs with Red/Aiden a whole hell of a lot better than Bond. Red respected her and put her feelings first, wanted her happiness and her love more than anything and wasn't afraid to say so. He also wasn't afraid to put limits on their relationship or to claim her as his. He wanted her, and he was damn well going to have her. I felt so much better when Jacqs realized that she had been putting everyone else's needs before her own, and she decided that she wanted to be with Red. That was the turning point in the whole book. That was when Bond realized that Jacqs wanted and loved Red and was choosing Red - not Bond. There were still a whole lot of things that happened after that, and damn was this book hot as hell to read. This was so full of alpha male dominance from both Red and Bond, the sex scenes were Oh. My. God. Fucking. Awesome. Definitely makes your panties melt. Blakely know how to write that really, really well. The story line was well written and I really liked most of the characters, even Bond. Although he made it tough. I'm looking forward to reading more in this series, and finding out more about these characters. Excellently done, Blakely, you've got yourself a new fan in me.
