I was given this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
(n.) the specific feeling experienced while falling in love, rather than simply being in love
As their friendship with benefits develops - so do some "unwanted" feelings of more. "God, I was swooning. Seriously, who actually swooned?" From the beginning of the series, we knew Max was a goner with Chloe. It was Chloe who needing some convincing. He was too much of a risk. Love was too much of a risk. After their close call, Max had "...felt like I had one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel, as my grandfather used to say." His decision to live in the moment just caused him to fall even harder for this girl. A friendly favor leaves her so grateful that "She pulled away and looked up at me, and there is was - that look in her eyes that just fucking undid me."
When Chloe's boss became aware of the friendship that was developing with Max - he insisted she call it off. Competitors in the business cannot be seen fraternizing. Worried about how he would react to the news. And then she sees a newspaper that someone wanted to ensure she saw! How would he react? How is she going to react - tears filled with anger, sorrow and frustration. But with what?
