Dear Hayley,

I’m assuming you’re still hungover, so I’ll make this brief.

Last night, you slipped under my sheets (without my permission), and we almost had sex. I got the hell out of the bed once I realized it was you, and I took you home.

That’s the story.

The end.

Period.

Just in case you’ve forgotten, you’re my best friend’s little sister. We will never be anything more. (We can’t be anything more.) Our previous friendship is still unresolved–or “over” in your terms, so I’d prefer if we worked on becoming ‘just friends’ again since you’re in town.

Nonetheless, I’m not a man who leaves questions unanswered–even the drunken ones, so to properly close our inappropriate conversation:

1) Yes, I liked the way your lips felt against mine when you were on top of me.
2) Yes, I do “prefer” rough sex, but I’m pretty sure I wasn’t rough with you.
3) No, I had no idea you were still a virgin…

This message never happened,
Corey

5 Stars!

 

Hayley Statham grew up in Ohio in foster care. Now grown up, she wanted to make a name for herself & make it on her own. She even changed her last name to Smith. She moved to Seattle & started a coffee/wine bar with her best friend, that’s now gone under. She feels like a total failure, & needs a fresh start. Her only option is to call her overprotective older brother Jonathan. He’s a self-made billionaire & the CEO of Statham Industries. She heads to San Francisco to work for her brother till she gets her life back on track.

 

Soon after Hayley arrives in California she runs into Corey Walters. He works with her brother & is her brother’s best friend. She hasn’t seen him in years, & he’s absolutely gorgeous. She had a crush on him growing up, and always considered him her best friend too. When they are suddenly in close quarters & spending time together they have trouble resisting one another. Corey knows Hayley is off limits to him, but soon he can’t fight their attraction. He wants her to be his in every way.

 

I loved this big brothers best friend romance! It’s one of my favorites by Whitney G. Corey was always there for Hayley when they were younger. It was very sweet with a lot of emotion, but then there’s the adult Corey. Holy hell the man is delicious!!! A sinfully sexy businessman who can’t quit thinking about the only girl he’s ever cared about. He never forgot about Hayley. Now she’s back in his life and turning it upside down. Loved this story so much!

She was still stunning as hell. The type of woman who left an imprint so deep on your mind that you simply learned to accept she’d always be a part of you in some way.

 

 

OVER US, OVER YOU is a romantic comedy with the ”in love with the older brother’s best friend” trope. I have to be honest, I read a story earlier this year with a very similar plot but this one here, hands down was the better of the two! Whitney G. is one of my top favorite authors and it’s very rare that she ever writes a mediocre story. I love her passion for her art. She’s not like some authors out there who seem to have a new book published every month and you can tell that it’s all about the bottom line for them. They don’t think of their fans or care if they publish a sub-standard book. I see this more with a lot of published authors as opposed to indie authors. I’m not saying that this is the case with every published author but there are some out there and I’ve been thinking about removing them from my automatic must-read list. What I meant to say after this long tirade was that I really freaking loved this book and it felt like no time had passed before I ended up finishing it. This is when I know a story is a winner! I never wanted it to end. Whitney took her time with releasing this book and I can assure you, it was worth the wait. She delivered another outstanding story for her faithful fans!

 

 

Hayley Statham is going back home to San Francisco to her older brother after having failed miserably at her first attempt at being a business owner. Her brother is a multi-billionaire with a very successful corporation. What I wouldn’t give to have an older brother like Jonathan to hook me up with a beautiful beach house, car, and a high paying job!! Hayley had it made in my opinion. But she does have an issue with sleepwalking and while her roommate to be is not due to move into her house in San Francisco till months later, Jonathan asks his best friend Corey to let Hayley live with him for a while so that he can keep an eye on her. The thing is, Jonathan doesn’t have the slightest inkling that Corey and Hayley had been secret “best friends” for many years and that they’ve harbored deep feelings for each other as well unbeknownst to the two of them.

Corey and Hayley cross paths at an art auction and the night ends up pretty steamy and also is forgotten for quite some time afterwards by an inebriated Hayley. She was so drunk she blacked out and didn’t remember how she snuck into Corey’s hotel room and tried to have her way with him. Two weeks later when they end up being roommates, Corey is cold, aloof, and downright nasty at every turn towards Hayley. Hayley’s just a bit hurt and taken aback by Corey’s treatment of her. She doesn’t know that he’s only being that way to keep her at arm’s length because he knows her brother would burst a blood vessel if he knew how Corey really felt about his little sister.

 

 

When Hayley lets Corey have a piece of her mind and is seconds away from moving out of his place, he finally reveals his true feelings for her and then the sparks are flying when all the years of unrequited love and physical desire consume the both of them. They agree to pursue a relationship but to keep it a secret until the time is right to approach Hayley’s brother with the truth.

Will Corey make the right decision when forced to choose between love and friendship?
