My Scorned Best Friend by Piper Rayne is now live!
Xavier and Clara kissing in a tree…
When your best friend growing up is a girl, that’s the song your classmates taunt you with over and over again. But it was never like that… until now.
It’s always been Clara and me. She’s the only one who truly knows me. After I was drafted into the NFL and ended up the starting quarterback for the San Francisco Kingsmen, I begged her to come with me. But she had her own life and responsibilities back in our small Alaskan town, so I didn’t fault her for staying.
We remained the best of friends despite the distance. I’d hang with her in Alaska during the off season, and she’d visit me in California while I was playing. Then, one night the lines blurred for the briefest of moments and set in motion a series of events that changed everything.
I’m not proud of the decisions I made after that fateful night, and I plan on making amends, because I need Clara back in my life. But not as my best friend—as my everything.

I love this author and series. I had high expectations but Clara and Xavier’s story didn’t turn out like I was hoping for. This friends to lovers book needed more explosive and energetic conversations and sexy scenes to stand out for me. Clara and Xavier are the classic best friends since birth type of friends. Through the years they have never crossed the line of friend/lover and because of that their friendship flourished.
Xavier gets into the NFL and leaves their small town. He basically lets the fame, women and fortune get to his head. On a visit between these two friends, that thin line gets crossed and Clara gets her heart broken. They end up barely speaking for almost two years. Xavier realizes what a jerk he has been and on a visit back home tries to win Clara back. I’m not sure why but I could not warm up to Clara. I could not connect with their friendship turned relationship. I wanted to love it but I only just liked it. I was a little bit disappointed that I couldn’t fully immerse myself into their connection.
