Title: Falling for his Best Friend
Staring down a surgery that'll change her life, Avery Yeung’s running out of time to get knocked up. And the only guy within donating distance? Her overprotective—and irritatingly hot—best friend. While daddyhood is pretty much the last thing he wants, Drew Flannery won’t let Avery shop for a “popsicle pop.” Between the bed, the kitchen counter, and against his squad car, Avery and Drew are having the hottest sex ever. And they can’t get enough of it—or each other. Or notice that they’ve crossed the one line that could ruin their friendship forever…

I love a good friends to lovers story and this one fits the bill nicely. Falling For His Best Friend is about Avery and Drew, who have been best friends since childhood. Avery is faced with a surgical procedure that will render her unable to have children. She’s always wanted kids. Since there’s no man on her radar, and she’s not getting any younger, she decides to have a baby while she still can. When she tells her friends of her intentions, everybody is behind her except for Drew.
Drew reacts very badly to Avery’s news of deciding to have a child. It bothered him to no end that Avery would be carrying another man’s baby-a donor of course. She is the only one who knows all his secrets and has always been there for him. He decides he should be the donor because that’s what best friends do…. He tells her he can give her a child and then be in the baby’s life like an uncle. Yes, you can see how this is going to go!
Avery decides to take Drew up on his offer, only he tells her he won’t be giving any specimens in a clinic. They will do this the old-fashioned way! He’s always fantasized about how she would be and this is his opportunity to find out! For the baby of course! Yikes! The sex is super hot in this book! As they progress with knocking Avery up, their lines of just friendship start to blur. Their deep feelings for each other start to emerge. But neither wants to lose their friendship if things didn’t work out. Both in turn, shove the other away trying to deal with these feelings.
I love the way that Katee Robert wrote this story. She gave us what was going on in each character’s head-which wasn’t always what they were saying out loud. It gave us the clear picture how they were already in love with each other. How each was struggling so hard to turn it back to the way it was before, because they were scared to lose the other. Neither could fathom living without the other in their life, so they were trying to shut down how they were feeling. Just the right amount of angst!
I whole-heartedly enjoyed this book and highly recommend reading it! So romantic and just a fun read! Out of Uniform is such a good series! I look forward to hopefully a future book with Avery’s sister, Alexis! Definitely a girl that needs a happy ending of her own!
