About this ebook


Best Friend Rule #1: never want the guy’s sister.


Oops.


Six months ago, I broke off my engagement because I was tired of not even being a distant second to my fiancé’s career.

Which is why Trent Salway, my brother’s best friend, is strictly forbidden.


One workaholic in my life is more than enough, thank you.


We’ll just ignore how I’ve been secretly crushing on him for as long as I can remember.


The problem? My best friend—Trent’s sister—is determined to find me Mr. Right.


***

Before being deployed on a Navy SEAL mission, my best friend makes one simple request:


I’m supposed to make sure that his sister Kelsey isn’t dating any assholes while he’s away.


Doesn’t sound too hard, right?


Living up to my promise includes crashing at least one blind date—not my finest moment, I might add—and spending more and more time with Kelsey.


Sparks fly between us, as do a few items of clothing.


Now, I have to decide what to do about the woman I’m falling for—the one whose brother will take me down faster than he takes down the enemy.


And I have to decide if I can be something other than a workaholic or if Kelsey is decidedly off limits.


Decidedly Off Limits is a standalone romance. All the books in the series can be read in any order.

Decidedly Off Limits by Stina Lindenblatt is the first book in her latest series, By The Bay . A heart-warming romance told in dual POV. The trope on this story is best friends brother/brother's best-friend. While this may sound complicated it is a well-crafted, slightly angsty, emotional and steamy read. Trent has had eyes for his little sister's best friend for as long as he can remember. If her status as his sister's bestie didn't make her off-limits then the fact the she is also the little sister of his best friend. Off-limits times two! But when he is asked by his best friend to "watch out" for Kelsey while he was away on deployment all bets are off. He is going to stake his claim and hope he doesn't lose his best friend in the process. Kelsey has been head-over-heels for Trent since her high school but her best friend, Trent's sister, has a rule in place - he cannot date her friends any more, ever, the end! Well, when Trent suddenly starts showing up everywhere she is, interrupting dates, she just can't take it anymore. The attraction is unbearable and pretty soon somethings gong to break. She would prefer it be the bed frame and NOT her heart!. Witty, romantic, steamy and slightly-angsty this was well-written and well-paced. Enjoy!

Little sister falls for big brother's best friend. Great romance with plenty of heat but also a good story line. It is a standalone with an HEA, though you will want more!

I loved this book! An addictive, multi-faceted story with lots of funny - definitely going to look for more from this author. And this at a time when I was getting tired of formulaic romance novels. 😺
