Review: Best Friends With The Billionaire by Colleen Kwan

Best Friends With The Billionaire
(The Rochesters)
Colleen Kwan
April 25, 2016

Cassie Cooper has never been the kind of girl noticed for her looks. But around billionaire Kirk Rochester, her best friend from college, Cassie wishes she could turn just one head—his. So when Kirk asks her to be his pretend girlfriend to thwart another woman's unwanted advances, Cassie embraces the opportunity to prove to him that she does have a feminine side.

Disillusioned by a rough marriage that had an even rougher end, Kirk values friendship more than romance. He’s always had a good thing going with Cassie. But he can’t ignore how sexy she is now playing the role of his girlfriend, and soon he’s fighting a dangerous attraction to her. Even though their time between the sheets is scorching hot, he refuses to take it beyond “friends with benefits.” He’s learned the hard way that loving someone is the first step to destroying his heart, and he won’t risk losing the best person in his life by falling in love with her.


Laura's Review: 

This was a pleasant, but not exactly memorable, quick-read of a romance. Friends to lovers is one of my favorite romance tropes, and while there were a few good sexual tension-filled scenes, it seemed to be lacking a bit compared to other books of its kind. Kirk was wonderful - the best part of the book by far - handsome and confident enough to help Cassie get through her unfounded insecurities, mostly created by her awful family.

There were a LOT of similarities to Jennifer Crusie's BET ME, which became a bit distracting as I was reading (BTW, if you haven't read that one yet, it's one of my favorite romance novels.)

Note: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for this honest review.
