Rising Assets (A Maverick Montana Novel) by Rebecca Zanetti with Giveaway & Review

Rising Assets
by: Rebecca Zanetti

Friends with benefits was never the plan…
Melanie Jacobs is in trouble. With three jobs—including running her ranch—and dwindling funds, she’s exhausted. Not to mention desperately trying to hide a secret. Unfortunately, her best friend Colton Freeze knows all too well that’s something is going on, and he won’t give up until he knows exactly what he needs to fix.
Then Colton learns the truth—that Melanie’s future happiness rests in the fickle hands of fate, and her chances for having a family are shrinking with every passing day. Her only comfort is Colton, but when a heated argument between them turns into an even hotter kiss, the boundaries of their friendship are erased, leaving only a scorching-hot hunger for more.
Every kiss—every touch—is a stolen pleasure. But will their new friends-with-sexy-benefits arrangement bring them closer together, or destroy everything they once shared?
My Review: 4 1/2 stars
This was a very enjoyable read. I really liked that Colton tried to not fall for Melanie. I liked that his family was behind him 100%, no matter what. I thought Melanie and Colton were great for each other, but they were stubborn. Neither wanted to risk the friendship that they had for so long by going further. Until one night, a kiss changes everything. Then neither one of them can stop thinking about what would happen if the other ended up with someone else. They continue to torture themselves by insisting that they are just friends, even while they think different things. There's also a long standing bet going around town on what date one or the other will declare their love for the other. Melanie is also dealing with medical issues, and once Colton becomes involved, things heat up quickly. There are a few twists and turns besides the ones I've mentioned, but it's a great read. I enjoyed every page. I loved the ending, and when you find out who the bet taker is - that is hilarious!
