King crab fisherman Fox Thornton has a reputation as a sexy, carefree flirt. Everyone knows he's a guaranteed good time--in bed and out--and that's exactly how he prefers it. Until he meets Hannah Bellinger. She's immune to his charm and looks, but she seems to enjoy his... personality? And wants to be friends? Bizarre. But he likes her too much to risk a fling, so platonic pals it is.
Now, Hannah's in town for work, crashing in Fox's spare bedroom. She knows he's a notorious ladies' man, but they're definitely just friends. In fact, she's nursing a hopeless crush on a colleague and Fox is just the person to help with her lackluster love life. Armed with a few tips from Westport's resident Casanova, Hannah sets out to catch her coworker's eye... yet the more time she spends with Fox, the more she wants him instead. As the line between friendship and flirtation begins to blur, Hannah can't deny she loves everything about Fox, but she refuses to be another notch on his bedpost.
Living with his best friend should have been easy. Except now she's walking around in a towel, sleeping right across the hall, and Fox is fantasizing about waking up next to her for the rest of his life and... and... man overboard! He's fallen for her, hook, line, and sinker. Helping her flirt with another guy is pure torture, but maybe if Fox can tackle his inner demons and show Hannah he's all in, she'll choose him instead?
In the follow-up to It Happened One Summer, Tessa Bailey delivers another deliciously fun rom-com about a former player who accidentally falls for his best friend while trying to help her land a different man...
I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
If you were like me in the first book, you wanted to know more about Fox. Who he was as a person.
Who What he did during his free time. You get what I’m saying.
This book follows king crab fisherman Fox Thornton and Hannah Bellinger. You meet these two in the first book and you understand they form some type of friendship. Which you’ll come to understand, is not something Fox usually does.
Fox is known for being this sexy, “hook-up” kind of guy. He usually lets the town think whatever they want about his reputation and doesn’t say anything differently. However, when Hannah comes back into town and needs to crash in his spare bedroom lines start to blur…
Hannah is sweet and down to Earth. As a production assistant, she’s trying to find her way into furthering her career and finding her confidence. And not only is she trying to further her career, but she happens to be crushing on her boss, who she wishes would notice her. When Hannah comes up with an idea to move the production to Westport, she realizes she’ll get to see Fox again. Although she doesn’t want to be just another girl who fell for him, she can’t help but see all his hidden layers.
This book was cute, charming, sexy. It had it all! I was so happy to get back into this world and get to see the characters again.
