Being able to stand on your own two feet, sometimes requires getting knocked off them completely...
McKenzie “Kenzie” Lane is newly graduated from college and looking forward to a dream internship she has lined up for the summer in LA. Unfortunately, her controlling mother has other plans.
Colby Singer, with his hot-as-sin looks and wicked charm, is never without attention from the ladies. Despite suspecting how Kenzie feels about him, he’s always kept her comfortably off-limits since she’s the baby sister of one of his best friends. But when he’s determined to distract her temporarily from the stress of her mother’s ultimatum, deciding to show her some fun, he quickly finds that keeping her in the friend zone is not as easy as he’d hoped.
Once Kenzie realizes this may be her last opportunity to gauge her long-time crush’s true feelings, she puts it all out there in the form of a bet. It's the perfect idea for her perfect man.
Until he isn’t.
Will a dose of reality lead to true love? Or will it crash and burn before it can even get started?

Full Length Standalone book with no cliffhanger. Third book of the “Something Series”
A BRILLIANT & SIZZLING FRIENDS TO LOVERS STORY.
My second book in this series by Aubrey Bondurant and although after reading the first book I knew this series would be addictive I jumped straight to book 3 instead of book 2. Something about Colby pulled me towards this book rather than Brian and Sasha's story but I will certainly read their story too as there are no spoilers in this book even though Brian is Kenzie's brother and is in her story a few times with Sasha.
Colby is the brother of Josh from the first book in the series, he's a hot bachelor with a playboy past and reputation.
Kenzie has always had a crush on Colby she even moved out to LA to attend school were Colby now lives and works continuing their close friendship that was definitely a big factor in her choice of school. Now Kenzie has finished school it's time for decisions, move home to finish college like her mother is demanding she does or stay in LA. Kenzie is still at a place in her life were she is deciding what she wants to do with her future.
I loved Kenzie and Colby's story. Colby and Kenzie grew up together, lived next door to each other and their older brothers Brian and Josh were and still are best friends. Brian, Colby, Josh and Mark are all a close group of friends and as the group grows and there are additions of women in their lives, the women also grow friendships too, making this a great interconnected series.
This is the kind of friends to lovers story were the hero is definitely in denial, especially with Colby also being a friend of Brian's and Kenzie being his little sister but the pull is strong and the more time Colby and Kenzie spend together especially following Kenzie's time in hospital and needing to move in with someone, the attraction becomes impossible to ignore.
I loved Kenzie and Colby's relationship, they are fun, flirty, hot and dirty, they're a perfect match and I thoroughly enjoyed their journey to more, to building up the courage to telling the rest of their group and to the perfect hea.
I can't wait to read Catherine's story, she is a character who came into the story in book one following her divorce. was having a tough time and she has remained friends with them all since. Like I said earlier this series is addictive, the authors writing easy to follow with great word and plot building and I am looking forward to more.
