The Play Mate by Kendall Ryan

This was a cute quick read.  I liked both Smith and Evie, though due to the fact this was so short there wasn’t a ton of character development, especially not on Evie’s part.  Because it was told from both Evie and Smith’s point of view, a trend in romance that I am loving, you get a better feel for what’s going on. I think the dual POV helps move the story forward, especially in this case, though there does tend to be a little more telling than showing.    

This story has the falling for my best friend’s sister trope, and as someone who does not have an older brother, I sort of don’t understand what the big deal is.  There seem to be a lot of overprotective big brothers in romance. Though I do understand that it adds a conflict, and also adds a naughty we can’t get caught vibe. 

Though this book was short it was high on the steam factor.  Short and steamy, just the way I like it. As I said, this is a quick read, and very cute.  If you’re looking for something more feel good, pick this one up
