4.5 Stars

Kirby Lawrence and Colin Donovan have been besties since high school and they have never let anything come between their rock solid friendship. And now, for the first time ever, they are both single… and after a few drinks too many, they come up with the greatest idea… best friends with benefits! Blow off some steam and have incredible sex with the one person who knows you better than anyone in the world? Sounds like the perfect plan… and what better place to implement it than in the one and only Las Vegas!


The Bangover was a hilariously enjoyable read filled with epic best friend sexcapades and a whole lot of drama thrown in. Kirby and Colin have always loved each other, and when they start to realize that their feelings may run even deeper than just great friendship, they are in for the craziest ride of their life… and the sex is fantastic too…

Kirby is a best selling horror writer who has a penchant to stay inside too much and lose herself in her latest work. After becoming emancipated from her deadbeat mother, and taking over care for her younger sister while she was still a kid herself, Kirby has never relied on anyone, until Colin. He has always cared for her and thought of her needs like no one else, no matter the time or distance that has separated them. And when they decide to embark on an always dangerous friends with benefits arrangement, Kirby is worried about it changing what they have, and if he wasn’t so irresistible, she may have been able to put a stop to it before they even began… which may just end up being the least of their problems…

Colin is a musical prodigy turned rockstar whose success has taken on a mind of it’s own. And while fame and women have come easily for him, he finds himself facing a songwriters greatest nightmare… writers block. And just when he vows to take a break from sex and relationships to clear his head, Colin kisses his gorgeous best friend, and soon realizes that she means absolutely everything to him… and he is going to find a way to prove it to her…

This was such a fabulous read! With a friends to lovers storyline line that was fresh and incredibly sexy, this book had me continuously laughing and thoroughly entertained. I loved Kirby and Colin’s dynamic. It was fun and easy, and you could immediately feel just how much they were made for each other. And when they travel to Vegas to spend some time alone (and naked!), the end up on a trip from hell… and the changing of their friendship is suddenly not the scariest thing they are about to face…

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.
