Description:

I asked for his criteria for bed buddies–that's the PG version.
He swore at me and said he didn’t do groupies.
And just like that, our friendship was off to a great start.

Reese Forster was the starting point guard for the Seattle Thunder.
Gorgeous. Cocky. Loved by the nation.
He’s also attending preseason basketball training camp where I used to work.

Correction: where I work again, because I was fired from my last job.
And dumped.
And I might have a tiny bit of baggage, but that’s normal. Right?

Reese and I shouldn’t have become friends.
We shouldn’t have become roommates.
And we really shouldn’t have started sleeping together … (Except we did.)

I’m adorably psychotic. He’s in the NBA.
​This is not a disaster waiting to happen, at all.

Review:

I do enjoy Tijan's books so after finishing Enemies a few months back, I grabbed this from the KU library too.

This starts with Charlie being fired from her job after her boss wrongly assumes that her husband is having an affair with her and then also being dumped via her boyfriends grandfather who also makes a pass at her. In a bit of a tailspin she accepts a phone call from her old friend who offers her a position at the camp they worked at together before and she agrees - not realising that the camp is open to her favourite team and her all time favourite player - Reese Forster. Charlie tries to not stalk him but after a strange first encounter they grow close and then closer still, finding the other the perfect ear for their troubles and before long feelings start to grow.

Yeah, this is another book that hit me in the feels. I cried on and off for a good 10% or so of this towards the end because I'd grown to like both Reese and Charlie and I wanted them to get together so badly. They were just so perfect for each other and it annoyed me that stuff was getting in the way of that.

This does deal with a few issues like drug use and alcohol addiction but it's a secondary character issue, not happening with the two mains. It also deals with mental health and emotional abuse so it can seem a little heavy at times but it made me like Charlie and Reese more with how they dealt with it all.

I will be keeping my eyes open for more books by this author.
