Bentley Jenkins has lived in his older brother, Baylor’s shadow since the day he was born. Never feeling like he could live up to the high standards that was expected of him, he set out to make his own name for himself. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a well-respected one.
Playboy, smooth talker, ladies man; these were just a few of the names that he was directly associated with. He took pride in the fact that he never had to seduce a woman to get her to fall at his feet. Normally, a look, a wink, and a flash of his sexy grin was all it took.
Any woman would jump at the chance to be with him, so much that he’s never heard the word, no.
Until the woman who claimed to be infatuated with him for years.
Until the woman he now couldn’t seem to get out of his head no matter how hard he tried…
Placed him in the Friend Zone.
Miriam Armstrong changed his entire perspective on women and for the first time in his life, he found himself wanting to settle down, to be a one woman man. But first, he needed to prove to Miri that the chemistry between them was worth being pursued, and that he wanted to be…More Than a Friend.

Amber Nation is delightfully entertaining and had me on the edge of my seat at every page turned. Starting high school in a new place is awkward enough then being rescued by one of the most good looking boys can surely leave an impression. For Miri, this is just that.
Bentley has everything going for him, well in his personal life that is. He's always scrutinized by his brother and mostly because of his bachelor ways. Years later he has a chance encounter with Miri and only to not realize who she is. They both have a sort of dynamic that most friends could only hope they never have to cross.
The struggles are real and while Miri mends from a broken heart Bentley struggles to keep from breaking a heart. The chemistry grows stronger but will these two find a way to each other is the real question. The signals are crossed and you are rooting for that one chance encounter to just take it over the top. Time after time, just inches from each other, and their hearts rapidly beating are separated by ego and the fear of getting hurt. This is a great friends to lovers story and has an enormous build up that will have you smiling, tearing up and rooting for what you know is inevitably bound to happen.
