MAKE YOUR MOVE
MAKE YOUR MOVE (4.5) by Samantha Hunter: Baker Jodie Patterson and scientist Dan Ellison have been buddies and business partners for years. Dan's loved Jodie for most of that time, but she's never seen him as more than a friend. Then she starts dating one of his colleagues, a womanizer with criminal tendencies, forcing Dan to act. After a hot night together, Dan tells Jodie he wants to remain lovers, but she's commitment-phobic and afraid sex will ruin their friendship. An excellent spin on a classic plot, a seriously sexy nice-guy hero and a heat quotient in the red zone make for a delightful read.
