Asher 'Ghost' Collins and Natalie Kovac shared a passionate night together. One neither of them can forget.

So why is it so hard for them to be around each other?

With no hope of the two getting along they decide to go their separate ways. And somehow end up closer than they've ever been.

Will friendship ever be enough for the pair?

Despite their apparent physical attraction, Natalie Kovac and Asher “Ghost” Collins never really got along with each other. But since their mutual group of friends keep hanging out, they have learnt to tolerate each other. Except for that night in the back-office of Asher’s best friend’s nightclub, when they gave in to the most amazing sex.

But it seems that not much more happened between them. Asher went back to his manwhorish ways and Nat decided it is time to get over what happened and put aside the many other things that make her the reserved person that she is. First things first, after months of avoiding Asher, she decides to move into a new apartment complex… without knowing that Asher is the guy next door and that he – just as much as Nat – never got over that one night in the office. However, will the two of them overcome their pride?

The reason why I loved this book was because it was just as hilarious as the first book in the series, and the characters are still as loveable. The whole hate turns to love thing is a difficult one to get right, but Belle Aurora definitely got it right: through the jealousy, the pranks and crazy things that happen, Nat and Asher give in to their attraction, and to really steamy sexy times. I just loved how this worked out.

It also didn’t stop there, because the book revolved around deeper issues such as Asher’s past and inability to have a real relationship, and around other important issues that come across Nat’s path. This made the book whole and meaningful, despite the lightly cheesy happy ending.

And to round Asher and Nat’s story up, every character present in their group of friend was again absolutely loveable (even if less present in this book than they were in the last) and gave a great final touch to the book.

Funny, loveable, enjoyable – what more can you expect from a book? I will be waiting to read the next one in the series, hoping that Ceecee’s father Max will find his HEA too.
