Reader Review: I somewhat liked this book; I thought it had solid characters and amusing dialog. It was however very forgetful. Suzanne Brockmannâs work is usually not forgetful, but this was. I found it somewhat predictable and almost forced. To sum it up, this book felt like a novella that was stretched beyond its capacity to fill pages.
In this witty, sensual, poignant tale, New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann explores destiny, deception, and that steamy tipping point between deep friendship and romantic love.
Photograher Clint McCade was a rugged free spirit with the perfect life, until he realized something vital was missing—Sandy Kirk. Since grade school, Sandy had been Clint’s best friend and closest confidante. She was smart, beautiful, shy—and clueless about her power over men. But when Clint finally seeks her out to declare his love, he finds she’s fallen for another man.
Sandy knew she was a lot of things to Clint—except what she’d always longed to be: the woman he loved. So it comes as no surprise when he encourages her pursuit of another, even offering to coach her in the art of seduction. But soon the friends find themselves engaged in a series of crossed signals, mixed messages, and unbearably titillating close encounters that prove only one thing is certain: body language doesn’t lie.

"First of all, don't sit like that," he said. McCade pulled her so that she faced him, so that their knees were almost touching, and he leaned forward slightly. "Step one: Invade the woman's personal space. Step two: Direct eye contact." He smiled into Sandy's eyes.
"McCade, this is silly—"
"I'm not finished. Now, without saying a word, a man can let a woman know he's interested in her." He let his eyes drop, focusing for a moment on her full lips, then lingering on the low neckline of her dress. "That's step number three. And if by now she hasn't run away, he might try step four—a nonsexual touch, something harmless like a handshake..." He lifted her hand, drawing her fingers into his. "...but turn that handshake into a caress," he continued, running his thumb lightly over the back of her hand.
Sandy stared down at her hand as he continued the sensuous movement. When she met his gaze, she could see the heat in his blue eyes. He moistened his lips with the tip of his tongue and her mouth went dry.
"Or you could try surrogate touching." He used one finger to trace the pattern of the fabric covering her couch. "It sends out a signal that says...I'd really rather be touching you..."

I loved this book!! The pace was excellent, the story interesting, and the interactions between the main characters was spicy and romantic.

This was light (it lacks the intensity of some of Brockmann's books,
particularly her romantic suspense books), but very enjoyable. Clint
McCade and Sandy Kirk have been best friends since they were teenagers.
When Clint comes rushing back into Sandy's life again, intending to tell
her that he has finally realized that he is in love with her, he is
dismayed to learn that he may be too late. She already has her eye on
someone else, a man who seems much more suited to her than Clint could
ever be. Despite himself, Clint vows to be a true friend and stay to
help her out.
This was another good one; I love the mixture of friendship and physical
attraction, and the way in which the second does not negate the first.
