JOHNNY LOVES KRISSY
This account of best friends turned lovers is by turns witty and poignant. “The Six Pack” of friends provides a good foundation of well-formed characters that support the fast-paced, sexy story.
Krissy and Johnny have been best friends for as long as they can remember. When her doctor tells her that her endometriosis is progressing rapidly, she decides to have a baby while she still can. The most sensible choice for the dad is her best friend. Johnny has loved Krissy forever. He welcomes this chance but she insists that they remain friends only. Their friends doubt the pair can live together and not become attached, but she is determined to prove them wrong. Krissy’s clinical approach to conception drives him crazy, but Johnny believes he’ll win her over. (WILD ROSE, Feb., 244 pp., $11.99)
