Book Blurb

Quinn Reed knows exactly how long he’s been in love with Cooper Bradshaw. In fact he could tell you right down to the very minute. He and Cooper have never been anything but friends, though, and as seems to be his luck, whenever he’s considered trying to make a move, either he or Cooper have been otherwise involved. Now that’s all about to change. Spring break is here, and for the first time in years they’re both single. Quinn thinks his time has finally come, his chance to put his plan to seduce Cooper to the test, but things don’t go quite the way he plans.

Book Review

Cute, short and very sweet, this is the story of two friends who realize there is potential for a lot more between them. Only this turns out to be easier said than done. As soon as one is available, the other has a boyfriend (or the occasional girlfriend in Cooper's case), and vice versa. Masters of hiding what they really want, these college students dance around each other for quite a while before breaking the pattern.


Quinn is the more hesitant of the two, suffering in silence as Cooper seems to parade an endless supply of boys and girls past Quinn. He is also the teller of the story, so I was as surprised as Quinn when the pattern changes. Not that Quinn minded, but he is still so delightfully naïve and innocent that it takes him a while to adjust and really believe Cooper is interested in him.


Cooper is a bit of a wild boy, at least what we get to see of him. He is also, once he 'gets it', the more daring of the two. I loved how he ends up sweeping Quinn off his feet. Well, they sweep each other off their feet, but Cooper is the natural leader. And when they get going, boy does it get hot!


If you like short reads with lots of humor, if you’re not averse to a few misunderstandings, and if you're looking for some hot and increasingly emotional encounters, you will probably like this short story.
