Friends with benefits was never the plan…

Melanie Jacobs is in trouble. With three jobs—including running her ranch—and dwindling funds, she’s exhausted. Not to mention desperately trying to hide a secret. Unfortunately, her best friend Colton Freeze knows all too well that’s something is going on, and he won’t give up until he knows exactly what he needs to fix.

Then Colton learns the truth—that Melanie’s future happiness rests in the fickle hands of fate, and her chances for having a family are shrinking with every passing day. Her only comfort is Colton, but when a heated argument between them turns into an even hotter kiss, the boundaries of their friendship are erased, leaving only a scorching-hot hunger for more.

Every kiss—every touch—is a stolen pleasure. But will their new friends-with-sexy-benefits arrangement bring them closer together, or destroy everything they once shared?

Review by Wendy

4 Push/Pull of Friends, Dash of Ticking Clock, 
Just feels Right Stars 
* * * *

Mother Nature played some serious tricks when she set up the ways of the world. She made it possible for us to have offspring's yet she also said there was a time limit for us, women....She didn't do that with the male... no, they can continue to create till the cows come home and they are old and grey... But us... we, women folk... we have that pesky internal clock that ticks ticks and sometimes the alarm rings out sooner than later for us.

This is the situation Melanie, our main character is in. She has heard the alarm way too soon for her age... Mother Nature has thrown some hurdles her way... and she is trying to handle them as best as she can. She recently lost her grandfather and has since been working three jobs; ranching, working at a coffee place and  bar at night. She is exhausted; but she has figured out a way to handle this ticking clock and she will continue to work so she can make it happen.

Her childhood friends, Hawk and Colton, have always been there for her...and they are worried. They were her protectors, buddies and soon to be business partners... but both of them have had their own things to deal with. Hawk, as a Navy SEAL, has been quiet about what missions and the aftermath has left him. He has been keeping things close to his chest and not revealing anything to his friends. Colton is back in town after completing all of the degrees he needed to receive the reins of the family holdings. So, both of her guys have been busy while she has been handling her own situations; and they do not approve.

They do not approve of their Mel dressed in short skirts and tight tops serving drinks to men ogling at her. NOT ONE LITTLE BIT. They will not have it; Hawk from that over protective thing.... Colton... he is not happy and it is coming from a place he has hidden from himself ... he has watched Mel grow, compared all other women to her and deep down has never admitted it... but now seeing her... all womanly... well, hot damn...

This is a well played friends to lovers tale. It is part of the Maverick Montana series by Rebecca Zanetti. She has created a town with real families. You can feel the ranching in their blood. There is a linking through out so you are invested in how everything connects. You get the taste of small town gossip; how nothing is private yet how all the towns folk only have the best interests at heart. 
Nature plays an equally important character with weather conditions and needs causing people to see what is really important. 

It is that close interest of seeing something and jumping to the wrong conclusion which brings these two together...the scene is written well and you can see how terrific these two will be once they get their heads out of their asses...

This is a love story... and Ms. Zanetti does not disappoint. When these two friends finally become lovers... oh, it is so good... like really good... 

There is another couple in the making... Hawk and Dawn... both of them are headstrong... and it has been a forbidden love.. he, much older... she, the sister of his best friend Colton... so you know it is going to be good... Please Ms. Zanetti... don't make us wait too long...
