Plus One by Brighton Walsh

Plus One by Brighton Walsh

Goodreads Blurb
Olivia hates the singles scene, so when her best guy friend, Ian, offers to be her plus one to a series of weddings she has to attend, she agrees. Although she doesn't want to complicate their lifelong friendship, she can't pass up the chance to have a steady date without the dating drama. What she doesn't expect is to now find Ian so incredibly sexy.

When Ian sees his old friend Olivia dolled up for wedding #1, the boyhood crush he once nurtured transforms into smoldering attraction. It doesn't take long for their no-strings arrangement to turn physical. But as Olivia's desire to stay "just friends" becomes clear, Ian's feelings are deepening. In the time they have together, how will Ian convince Olivia that one plus one can make for a lifelong pair?
Olivia has been on a string of rotten dates.  Unfortunately, she has a series of weddings that she has to attend and dreads the thought of going alone.  While lamenting this fact, her childhood friend, Ian, suggests that he accompany her to the weddings.

Ian has been in love with Livvy for over twenty years.  Having spent the past 7 years two hours away from her Ian has convinced himself that he has moved on. Ian now wonders if it is even possible to get over her.  After spending several weekends as Livvy's plus one, Ian finds himself in a perpetually aroused state and his heart in greater jeopardy than it's ever been.

And then, one night, Ian and Olivia give in to the sexual tension.

This is an exceptionally quick read.  Many moments between Olivia and Ian could have been expanded or explored more deeply.  It almost seems to rush ahead at times, but it is still very enjoyable.  Even though it is quick, I still felt a strong connection between the characters.

If you are looking for something quick and sexy, give Plus One a try.  Plus One is expected to be released May 6, 2013.

4 out of 5 stars
