Kyle Pierce used to know what she wanted. At the top of her list was the perfect boyfriend. She found him in Lance Makin her senior year in high school. She was the head cheerleader and he was the new star quarterback. Even going to separate colleges was no problem for them.
It was perfect until the weekend it all changed for Kyle. She has new priorities that include her own education, making new friends and most importantly NO DATING!
That is until Nicholas Richards moves into her world. He’s not taking no for an answer. He’s her friend and he wants her to date him.
Kyle isn’t going to date Nick. She doesn’t mind hanging out or running errands. She tells him and everyone else they are friends.
Can they really be just friends?

Stunning, it's an adjective. It usually means extremely impressive or attractive or beautiful even. I was referring to the view but I can assure you that turning to see you standing at the door is no less impressive.”

Ummm, holy friggin frustration-this chick (Kyle) drove. me. Nuts! But wow, props to the author for a fantastic debut-she definitely has the ability to tie me in knots, I look forward to what else she brings our way in the future. Now...on with my review =)

He winks at me and takes off in the opposite direction. He turns once and takes a picture of me watching him walk away. I can't help but think that Nicholas Richards just might be trouble for me.

Kyle had the perfect boyfriend once, in high school-she was a cheerleader, he was the star football player, and though they were both headed off to separate colleges , they promised to make it work. And it did for awhile...then it didn't anymore-that's all I'm saying on that. Now, Kyle has dedicated herself to her studies and her family. She has no desire to date anyone at this point, in fact-she flat out refuses to date anyone. At All. Period. And she's perfectly okay with that plan... til Nicholas Richards walks into her life.

They can't be real feelings yet. If they are then I'm in real trouble. I need to keep my distance and just be friends with him. That is what I need to do, and that should be easy.
At least I think we are friends.

Nick makes it clear he's interested in dating Kyle, Kyle makes it clear she does not date and they will never be more than friends, but Nick is determined and Kyle soon realizes he will not be giving up.

We can be friends only because you don't want something more. Just so you know I'm not going to give up.”

I have to admit, this book frustrated the ever lovin' shit outta me. Kyle has got to be one of the most frustrating people I have ever read... except for maybe her brother, Dean. I just wanted to shake her, hard, Oh! And I kinda wanted to smack her brothers around a bit, over-protective much?! I did love the dynamic between Kyle & her brothers, when they weren't being over-bearing asshats, you could tell they were really close and the pranks cracked me up. Now Nick... well, he was pretty damn perfect. Sweet, sexy, and so damn patient, although I'm pretty sure he's hiding something-something huge, and the ending makes me nervous. Which reminds me-I should warn you, this ends with a cliffhanger, which completely floored me because I was unaware that this was going to be part of a series-but there you have it. In the end, it was a pretty great debut for Ms. Sidonia Rose. I cannot wait to see what she brings us next and am dying to see where this story goes from here-So. Many. Questions!

I know it's what I said I want, but deep down I also know I lied to him. I feel bad about it for a minute before I push those thoughts away. It' better he's mad at me now and not later when I really would mess things up. At least this way we can still be friends. At least I hope we can still be friends.

Sidonia Rose lives in suburban Maryland with her family. Sidonia has a long love affair with books. She started early by memorizing her Dr. Seuss books read to her, so she could read them to her parents instead. She is often found with a book in her hands or a couple of books so she can lend to a friend. You can often spot her by her toe shoes.
After a long career homeschooling she continued onward to pursue her love of books by writing her own books. Love Shots is her first novel released in 2014.
