A New Heartwarming Read From Lauren Layne!
Lincoln Mathis is a man with some serious game, one simple look and he has the ladies quivering, every move he makes is under their watchful eye, each one dying for the chance to score the prestigious place on his arm. But for Lincoln that is all that it is, a little game of sorts, he has no intention of ever letting any of them that close, or anywhere near his heart, that is kept under lock and key. But the moment he meets the alluring Daisy Sinclair he is instantly enamored with her, she is by all accounts as good at the game as he is...and it's downright astounding!
Daisy Sinclair has been forewarned about Lincoln Mathis, and his ever-growing reputation for being the ultimate playboy, so she decided early on that she wouldn't be like the rest and fall for his game... but the minute he strides into her life she begins to realize she might be in over head! Nothing could have prepared her the gorgeous Mr. Mathis, he is smooth, charming, and his sex appeal is blinding, so much so, she feels her good sense slipping away, and her resistance to his charms start to falter. But then he surprises her, and makes her an offer she can't refuse... a no strings attached friendship, and that's something she really needs right now. But can she really only be friends with a man as tempting as Lincoln?
The second I laid eyes on the cover for this one I was in, SOOOO IN, the intensity in his gaze had me wanting to dive right in and learn every little detail about this sexy specimen! The instant Lincoln appeared on the page I was instantly smitten with him, and continued to fall hard for him with each page I read... you just meet characters quite like him too often. He was every bit the smooth talking alpha he was rumored to be, but underneath his playboy facade was a man with a gentle caring spirit, and a heart of gold. From the beginning it was evident that these two were a match made in literary heaven, watching the two wounded souls heal from their past losses, and discover their happily ever after was truly a beautiful thing to witness. This was by far one of the best takes on the friends to lovers trope that I have ever read, and these two uniquely crafted characters sure to linger with me for a long while, definitely one of my favorites from this author!! I highly recommend this one, it's sure to stir your emotions, warm your heart, and renew your faith in happily ever afters!!
