About this ebook

The friend zone: a black hole from which there is no escape.


Or so they say.


But Lily Perkins is desperate to climb out of the frigid void and into the scorching embrace of former sailor Deryk “Bull” Roberts. If only she can get her Bull-headed bestie to cooperate.  

Saddled with a devastating past and riddled with unanswerable questions, Bull’s life is too complicated for romance, especially at the risk of losing his best bud. But he never expected his attraction for Lily to burn so hot.  

As lines are crossed and challenges are made, can they find a way out of the friend zone abyss? Or will the darkness of his past devour their spark?

A refreshing take on a friends to lovers romance, this story pulled me in right from the beginning. There was just enough drama to make it interesting, but not so much that it wasn't believable. This author has a way of making the characters seem real, and their story seem like you are right in the middle of it when it's happening. Bull had an amazingly normal childhood. Growing up in a typical southern family, his life seemed to be planned out for him, and he was happy. After going away to serve his time in the military, tragedy struck, and everything spiraled out of control. Life has a way of leading you to where you need to be, especially when you least expect it, but maybe need it the most. Lily's life has been one bad turn after another. A particularly horrible event leads her to the Dead Presidents MC, and to the one man she is sure is meant to be her future. But nothing in Lily's life has been easy, and it doesn't look like her love life is going to be any different! I really wasn't sure, at times, that Lily and Bull had a chance. There were just too many emotions, too much standing in their way. Their story was one that really shows that true love wins in the end, even when you don't expect it to. It was a story that tugs at your emotions, and left me in awe at how perfectly right they were together. Absolutely perfect!

The Dreaded Friend Zone Bull and Lily had been friends for two years but Lily was done with that and wanted their friendship to continue on to the next level and that’s when Bull pulled her from the dreaded friend zone only to put her in an even worse category…the sister zone!! Lily had been through so much in her life that she was willing to fight her way into Bull’s bed and into a relationship she knew he wanted too. Bull had things from his past that kept him from moving forward and it took a friend to point a few things out. This was a sweet read that had some laugh out loud moments especially with old Mrs. Moore. It’s worth the read just for this lady and her skiing abilities!! You’ll just have to read to find out.

Harley Stone nailed it!!! She has taken a complicated, sad topic and given hope to her readers. Lily was raped two years earlier. She ran in fear but stood up to the suspect with the support of The Dead Presidents. They continue to support her. She could have crumbled but she has chosen to survive, thrive and give love a chance. She holds her friendship to Bull close to her heart but she wants more. She wants him. She needs him. Bull values his friendship with Lily but it can't be more. His past haunts him. His inability to protect his future eats at him. He can't risk love. He can't risk Lily becoming a part of his family. He can't. He won't. Which is stronger, love or fear? Taming Bull will have you thinking. Taming Bull will have you crying. Taming Bull will shock you. Taming Bull will have you hoping for a happily ever after. They deserve it. They need it.
