Blurred Lines - Lauren Layne

Ben Olsen & Parker Blanton have been best friends for the last 6 years, since college.  They have also been platonic.  She thinks of Ben as kind of a player.  Parker has a boyfriend so she feels more settled.

 

Ben and Parker are also roommates.  This helps and hinders things depending on the opinion of who they are talking to at the time.  They are truly best friends and care for one another.

 

Ben has a lot of self doubt since he did not go into law school like the rest of his family.  He think they think less of him, so he tends to think he is not worthy of a better life.  Parker, meanwhile, enjoys her job, life, and boyfriend and is happy overall.

 

Parker receives quite a blow, when her long-time boyfrined decides he has "not been feeling it for a while."  So she is trying not to break over the fallout, and has a good support system to help her heal.

 

Ben, being her best friend has ideas for her to heal of his own.  Along with another friend from work - they take her out and teach her how to "hunt" for a date while single.  She does not take to it as fast as they like and this discourages her.

 

Parker and Ben have a good friendship and supreme trust.  So when she turns to him and says maybe we should change our relationship up with sex?  He agrees after some cajoling.  He is a guy, after all.

 

I think this was one of the best books I have read in a long time.  I know I loved the banter.  The sexy times were both funny and hot.  The friendship was charming, and sweet.  Overall a really good read with an HEA for the reader.  I give this a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
