This was a super quick read and I have to admit I’m not disappointed it was fast. This was your typical best friends turn best friends with benefits scenario…yada, yada, yada.

Richard is a bald, hot hockey player and has an equally hot best friend Madison. They have been best friends with benefits for about seven years but their relationship has very clear set boundaries – almost robotic. Madison and Richard both have feeling for each other but both are too scared to speak to the other about it for fear that their friendship would be jeopardized. Until Madison’s friend pushes her in the direction to put herself out there to date and find her perfect match to start a life with. She does until Richard finds out and as you can suspect, jealousy rears its ugly head and he realizes he has to fess up to his feelings about Madison or risk losing her.

Due to the fact that this benefit relationship was going on for YEARS when these two finally do come together there was no passion, fire fireworks or chemistry. It just seemed like it was old hat but now they had an official title. This was just ehhh for me and a little too predictable.
