Josephine Walker doesn’t do drama. All her life she has taken the safe route and done what was expected; she married her college sweetheart, found a great job, had two beautiful children and settled in to her little piece of perfection to live out her life. She was happy with the mundane.
The only thing that seems out of place is her best friend Matt; he is as funny, crazy and impulsive as she is sarcastic, dependable and predictable. Matt’s life is loud and full of chaos. Jo knows his past is as dark as his tattoos, that his secrets are buried for a reason, but all she can see is that he’s always got her back.
When her marriage falls apart, Matt swoops in to help Jo pick up the pieces. At least, that’s what he planned to do. But, Jo has other plans. She’s done playing it safe, done caring what other people think. She wants wild and crazy; and as much as she tries to ignore it, she wants Matt. Together they have to answer the ultimate question; can a man and a woman, who are as close as they are, ever truly be just friends?
Jo adores Matt, she trusts him completely. But, will she risk everything, including their friendship, to take a chance on love with the bad boy that could destroy her heart?

This is one story you do not want to miss out!
I was asked to read an ARC of this debut novel from a fellow blogger. As soon as I started to read the novel I immediately fell in love with the story and the characters, the love and friendship that they have. I was sucked in the story from beginning to end. The story felt so realistic and believable I laughed and cried, I got angry, I was nervous and excited, but most important I felt the love.I never like to give away too much of the plot because I like for readers to be as surprise and excited as I was when reading and finishing the book, but the synopsis says it all. This is truly one story not to miss out on! I am looking forward to more novels from author Carina Adams. For being her first novel she did an amazing job writing it. And I give it 5 stars.
