Kristina Taylor's biological clock just went off. She has endometriosis. Now “who's your baby's daddy” just took on a completely new meaning. A brilliant plan for conception includes her hot best friend Johnny Huston. Taking him to bed won’t be a hardship—if she can only get him to play by her rules. After all, she wants to maintain their friendship. Not easy if he ends up being the best sex of her life.
Knock her up? Krissy has to be crazy. Or is she? Johnny has loved her since high school. Her plan might not include life after baby. His does. But how is he going to show her how good they can be together with all her rules—no kissing, no touching, no caressing. He can make love to her, but she’s determined not to enjoy it. To hell with that and to hell with her rules. He’s determined to show her friendship is the best foundation for a relationship.
But there are always complications…
With Johnny, Krissy is afraid to look to the future. Right now, she can’t get enough of the present, and she dreads the thought of losing what she’s had with him in the past.
The tension shifted in the room. Johnny’s breathing changed. Before Krissy’s heart had a chance to skip a beat, Johnny pinned her against the wall. Hot and demanding, his lips found and parted hers. His tongue snaked into her mouth. Tasting. Savoring. Stroking the texture, he sucked on her tongue while pulling a moan from her chest.
“Kissing is against the rules,” she said, arching her body closer to his. Angling her hips, she nestled his incredibly hard cock in the apex of her legs. Heat bloomed in her pussy, and her clit ached. Flutters swarmed in her tummy and desire, white hot and intense, surged through her. She moaned when his palm found her breast and his thumb stroked across the peak. Her nipple tightened to the point of pain. She needed more. “Oh, and so is touching.”
Johnny understood her plea and pulled the tie behind her neck. The top fell forward. With insistent lips, he tasted his way down her neck, feathering kisses over her collarbone, until he latched onto her nipple. Krissy moaned and sagged against the wall. His velvety tongue rasped over her taut tip. Sensation streaked, like lightning, down her spine and centered in her clit. Moisture slicked her folds, knowing the pleasure Johnny could rain on her body.
Opening wide, he closed his mouth over her breast, encasing her sensitive peak in warm, wet heat. Working the flesh with his jaw, his tongue flicked the tip. Electric shocks reverberated. Chills broke along her arms as her body warmed. Both shivering and melting.
“Watch out the window.” Johnny stepped away from her and shut the laundry room door. “It doesn’t lock,” he said, coming back to her.
The dark, dangerous gleam in his eyes sucked the breath from her lungs. Dipping his head, he kissed her again. Then she was lost.
Johnny and Krissy have been best friends since grade school, but have never thought about taking their relationship to a romantic level, for fear of ruining the wonderful and unique friendship they have. Their feelings abruptly change when Krissy finds out she will have only one chance in her life to have a baby, before undergoing a hysterectomy. The time has to be now, or else her window of opportunity to be a mother will be gone. No matter that neither of them is ready for marriage, parenthood, or commitment, Krissy wants her best friend to be the father of her only child.
Johnny agrees to father her child, and they list certain rules for their deeper liaison. Above all there will be no falling in love, no future except as separate parents of the child.
There is so much angst and anguish between these two that the reader almost wants to give them each a swat and tell them to get on with it! Their friends and families are all in favor of the union, and soon white picket fence dreams invade both of them. Still, they are reluctant to commit to marriage. Johnny is not nearly as commitment-phobic as Krissy, and he sets out to win her heart as well as her friendship.
There are lots of comedic moments, such as when they try to have sex without using their hands, but their motivations and conflicts take over the whole story. Obviously their goals have to change, but how is that going to happen?
I liked these two, and they set the sheets on fire whenever they are close to each other. Turn the air conditioning down to ‘freezing’ when you read Johnny Loves Krissy.
