Drew Collins was always the one night stand kind of man not looking for love until one woman with red hair said no to him and dumped beer on him. Stunned that she would say no, Drew is intrigued by the beauty named Alexandra 'Alex' McCabe, who is alluring in a way that says 'Go Away' to all who approach. Finally getting into her life was not easy, but he knows Alex needs him as a friend more than anything, including his offer of love. Alex has lost both her parents and fears no one will stay in her life. Then Drew annoys his way into her life and she once again has something to lose. Out of fear Alex never hopes for more with Drew and choose to keep her best friend and connection to a pseudo family over a chance at love. The problem is when both deny what they really want and make mistakes push their relationship to the brink will they finally admit what they want or let it be nothing more?
Overall, good story and I loved Alex and Drew's relationship, especially when she put Drew in his place. The two of them were just perfect for each other and it hurt to see them deny their love for one another when it was so painfully obvious to everyone around them. Now, I enjoyed the flashback perspective style used to highlight Drew's feelings, but I really wanted a chapter or two in the present from him. The same went for Alex, all of her chapters were in the present form, but I would have loved a few in the past just to know how she thought at a few moments back then. The only other issue I had was about the drama between Alex and Drew, it felt overly contrived and escalated to a point it didn't have to, vague I know, but by having it all go wrong to make the reader scream in frustration was not relaxing for me. At one point I really questioned if Alex should forgive Drew, sad I know, but he really did a jerk move which I really would never forgive. But Drew more than makes up for it in the end with a very cute . . . well I'm not spoiling it. So if you' re up for a frustratingly cute read where Best Friends think it's best for them to remain friend zoned but their attraction is too much to handle when they click so well, then this is a book you'll enjoy.
