Book Tour for Hard for My Best Friend’s Sister by Ava Jackson (Review)

As a reader who enjoys steamy romances I found myself drawn to this from the moment I read the premise.  Keep reading to get a tempting taste of Hard for My Best Friend's Sister by Ava Jackson, along with my impressions, and then add it to your bookshelf!

The last time I saw her, she was asleep—and I'd just taken her virginity.
She was my best friend's little sister. I'd broken the guy code, and the guilt had me running before she woke.
Ten years later, she's a corporate bad ass negotiating across the table from me—and hotter than ever. I want my second chance, but she's all grown up and isn't about to hand it to me.
This time, I've got a whole different game plan in mind.
The last time I saw him, he was balls deep inside me—and I'd just lost my virginity. When I woke up he was gone.
Ten years hasn't erased the sting of rejection. And now he wants his second chance?
I swore I'd say no ... but then he made me an offer I couldn't refuse: when we're working, we're strangers, but at night? He'll make my every dirty fantasy come true.
This time, I'm not going to be the one left wanting more. Standalone steamy, erotic romance.




As someone who's read numerous romances between a girl and her brother's best friend I was immediately drawn to the premise of this book.  I expected the usual issues to arise within the pages but Ms. Jackson set her romance apart with likable characters and a charming and straight-forward storyline.  It's ultimately a story about forgiveness and second chances too with enough flashbacks to give depth to the characters and believability to their connection.

Cameron knew he did wrong the moment he slept with his best friend's sister. Instead of dealing with it head-on though, he ran.  Ten years and he can run no longer and it's an awkward reunion he has with the girl he's never forgotten as this time around he vows to make her his permanently.  Cameron was immensely appealing despite his earlier vanishing act.  He's grown older and wiser and knows what he wants this time around.  He won't waste time waiting for Dylan anymore and it's a sweet yet sexy onslaught he unleashes on her.

Dylan was once in love with Cameron which is why she was heartbroken when he left.  Ten years later has her older and wiser too, along with fiery and strong-willed when focused on her career.  Seeing Cameron again reawakens the feelings for him that she's kept buried but she won't be won over as easily this time around.  Dylan was smart and confident and gave as good as she got when it came to their sensual tug of war.

Theirs is a connection that's crackling with sensual yet playful encounters.  Their dialogue was fun and flirty and teeming with sexual tension.  Neither of them obsessed over the past as they're clearly more focused on their future.  There's no silly disagreements impeding their HEA either which was a refreshing change from these usual romantic entanglements.  Ultimately this was a pleasant diversion over way too soon.  From start to finish this was a charming yet decadently delightful read between two likable people and I commend Ms. Jackson on her entertaining storytelling!

My rating for this is a B+

*I got this book from the author for review in exchange for my honest opinion.


Ava enjoys naughty things. She’s drawn to the forbidden and taboo, and writes kink that makes you think. Raised in Idaho, Ava now lives on the East Coast with her husband, and two dogs.
