About this ebook

Lines are crossed and promises broken when a forbidden kiss ignites an irresistible attraction in this sizzling brother’s best friend romance…


“Promise me you’ll always look out for Andie.”

By the time I was seventeen, I knew my best friend’s younger sister was the only girl I’d ever love.

We’re all grown up now, but my feelings for Andie haven’t changed. She’s the smartest woman I know and the only one who sees through the carefree act I hide behind. She deserves better than a screw-up like me—failed musician, part-time handyman, and full-time black sheep of my family.

I’ll do anything to protect her, so I keep my distance and my hands to myself.

When the tumble-down house she inherited needs repairs, I jump on my white horse and swoop in to help her with the renovations. Even though it means spending dangerous amounts of time together.

I’ve got it under control until the night a surprise kiss changes everything between us.

One scorching-hot taste of her is all it takes to shatter my defenses. Now that I know how much she wants me, I’m addicted to our secret glances and stolen touches.

Around our friends and family, we pretend we’re still just friends.

But when we’re alone? We can’t keep our hands off each other.

This game we’re playing is bound to blow up in our faces, just like everything else I touch. If I can’t prove I’m worthy of Andie’s love, I’m going to lose my two best friends in the world.


MY CONE AND ONLY is a swoony, feel-good friends to lovers romance featuring a STEM heroine who takes no crap, a surprisingly loyal bad-boy rocker who’s head over heels for the one woman he thinks he can’t have, lots of small-town shenanigans, and an epic grovel.


It stands alone with a guaranteed HEA and kicks off the six-book KING FAMILY series. Your heart will melt for this band of unruly siblings behind a Texas ice cream empire as they stumble on the rocky road to love while dealing with their big, messy family.

With all the drama and bromance going on, it should have been Wyatt and Josh in a relationship. It's a tale about a man who was in love with his best friend's sister since he was a teen but was bound and gagged to a promise to always protect the sister from bad unwanted suitors who would only hurt her. So since he couldn't declare himself, he spent a decade slutting around until he manned up and confessed what he felt.Predictable plot but overall, it's an enjoyable read.

This is my first time reading this author, and I enjoyed her book. It fits nicely into the friends-to-lovers and best friend’s little sister tropes. It is the story of Wyatt, who has experienced a great deal of loss very young and was very fearful of causing more and Andie, who has a lot of difficulty trusting despite there not being an apparent reason. Wyatt has grown up with the impression that he is doomed to fail, and has therefore stopped trying. He believes himself to be very alone, despite the fact that he has a large, concerned family. He uses charm and feigned confidence to mask his insecurities, and has never has a relationship because he believed that he could never be with the woman he loved. Andie is hiding similar feelings toward Wyatt, believing him to be interested in any woman but her. These two love and learn on their journey that hiding one’s feelings might delay years of happiness. I recommend that you give this book and this author a try. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced complementary copy of this book.

There’s a lot to savor in the start of the King Family (and ice creamery) series. Andie has been crushing on Wyatt since forever. Except, he will sleep with every girl but her (which is gross in a small town. Just ick). Wyatt likes her too, but has firmly put her in a neat little box. He’s very immature in many ways and has a lot of growing up to do. Still, once they started fixing up the house (a metaphor for working on their relationship) things heat up. Recommend.
