In the final Broke and Beautiful novel from bestselling author Tessa Bailey, a blue collar construction worker and a quiet uptown girl are about to discover that the friendzone can sometimes be excellent foreplay.
Construction worker Russell Hart has been head-over-work boots for Abby Sullivan since the moment he laid eyes on her. But he knows a classy, uptown virgin like her could never be truly happy with a rough, blue-collar guy like him. If only she’d stop treating him like her personal hero—a role he craves more than oxygen—maybe he could accept it.
With the future of her family’s hedge fund on her shoulders, Abby barely has time to sleep, let alone find love. And her best friend Russell acting like a sexy, overprotective hulk any time their Super Group goes out in public definitely isn’t helping her single status. But after a near-tragedy lands Russell in her bed for the night, Abby’s suddenly fantasizing about what he looks like shirtless. Chest hair and tattoos—who knew?
As Russell struggles to keep Abby at a safe distance, she begins to see through his tough-talking exterior—and acknowledge her own feelings. Now she’s ready to turn the friend-zone into foreplay…and make him lose control.
"Six months ago, when Abby Sullivan had placed the ad on Craigslist, seeking two roommates to share her Chelsa apartment, her highest hope had been for noise."
The 'Super Group' from the Broken and Beautiful series is comprised of six individuals, each with different backgrounds/characteristics. I hesitated when it was revealed that the core relationships spanned only six months, well-established bonds are more reliant. However, the author, Tessa Bailey solidified the relationships with witty and sarcastic dialogue.
"You were put on this earth to make me crazy, Abby. You know that?"
"I'm not sorry about it," she whispered. "Does that make me a bad person?"
"No. It makes you a woman."
Russell Hart is a sexy, overprotective, dirty talking, man who loves to work with his hands. His best friend, Abby Sullivan, is an affluent, virgin, who is good with numbers.
Overall, an incredible read. I have added the first two installments Chase Me and Need Me to my TBR.
