After a string of failed relationships, and with three months left on the marriage pact she foolishly agreed to, Raven Holloway has just about given up on love. To take the sting out of her latest heartbreak, she does what she’s always done—seek consolation in the arms of her best friend, Bryson Montgomery. Only this time, comfort turns to white-hot pleasure and a night she can’t seem to forget. But the strong-willed physical therapist doesn’t want to ruin a friendship and isn’t ready to trust her heart again.
Marriage is definitely not on Bryson’s radar. He has his hands full running his teen community center. Yet, he isn’t prepared for the passion Raven unleashes in him and now he wants more. Raven is determined to keep him in the friend zone, but he’s just as driven to show her how good they can be together. So, Bryson devises a seductive campaign to persuade Raven to embrace what he is offering…a love that will last forever.

The crew is almost at the end of the marriage pact and that leaves Raven all alone. She does what she always does, find solace in the presence of her best fried Bryson. The friendship that they share so real and genuine, you can’t help but love them. They really do understand each other until one night everything changes.
Bryson has gotten a taste of his best friend and feels that him and Raven can make their relationship work. He puts in work and you know loves Raven for Raven. I was hoping she wouldn’t ruin things and run from Bryson, but you can’t run from those who really know who you are. I enjoyed this series and I’m glad that you get to visit with each of the main characters through the series.
