Mari was fast tracking to forever with her boyfriend of two years, until a former friend turned skank sent her some incriminating evidence that included her body bouncing on his dick.
All trust was lost in the male species, and she decided it was time to use men as they had been using women for years. The plan served her well for a while, with a lot of free drinks and evenings that ended up with her face down on a couch with a nameless guy pounding her from behind.
Her BFF, Kaylie, staged an intervention for her whorish ways… but then in the course of a week she met two men who challenged her heart and her lady parts in ways they’d never been tempted before. Suddenly she felt like a game piece, and she had to choose what team she was playing on.
Tall, dark and tattooed, Jamison loves one thing in life and that’s his Harley. He makes no promises other than a good time. There will be no promises of forever, and to hell with monogamy. But, if she spends a single night with him, she’ll be feeling it for at least three days.
With a smile that could light up the darkest night, and dazzling blue eyes, Dane friend-zones her from the start. He’s been through his share of meaningless relationships, but the former star quarterback wants a chance at falling in love with his best friend, rather than chase the next piece of fine ass.
With an epic battle of heart vs. heat; whose team will she be on?

First off, the convos and banter between one of the main characters Mari and her best friend Kailey are some of the funniest things that I have read to date. While some of them border on vulgarity I couldn’t have loved it anymore then I did. With that being said…I don’t want to give too much away about this book because I think it needs to be read so here it goes…
Mari is coming off of being devastated by her boyfriend. While she thought he was ready to get down on one knee, he was evidently getting on his knees for another girl. Left broken and embarrassed Mari goes into a downward spiral with no relief in sight. She drinks and bed hops from guy to guy, sometimes not even remembering faces, names and places. Her best friend gives her some tough love that actually makes her take stock of her life and just about this time she meets Dane.
Dane is hot, sweet, established, a hard worker and reformed manwhore. He can immediately tell Mari has some deep seeded issues. While he would love nothing more then to rip her clothes off and ruin her for any other man, he decides to take a different approach and friend zones her. Their relationship was so fun to watch, the push and pull and the chemistry was evident. Through a course of events, however, she is devastated again.
Throughout this whole book Mari is depending on her BFF for advice and omg…I love, love, loved her. I am hoping that the author gives this chick her own freaking book because she sooooo needs it!!! She is raw, gritty and some of the things that came out of her mouth I had tears coming out of my eyes from laughing so hard!! Her and Mari are hilarious together and added much needed comedy relief at the perfect times.
This is one hilarious book and while a tad bit angsty watching Mari self destruct, it was awesome to see her turn her life around slowly.
Edyn Michaels lives in Massachusetts with her husband and eight pets. She believes in unicorns, thinks that calories don’t exist on her birthday, your birthday, his birthday, everyone’s birthday. Holidays either. Calories definitely don’t exist on holidays.
When she’s not writing, she works a handful of jobs, and is learning to play the bagpipes. Because, well, why not?
Her favorite type of books to read are the ones that require a large stock of batteries in the nightstand drawer, but at the same time, she likes complex characters that she can relate to. But mostly, batteries.
Side hobbies include photography and so much baking. And bitching about whatever diet she is on at the time.
