Being in love with someone who doesn’t love you back sucks.
Being in love with your brother’s best friend sucks even more, because you know it can never happen. How tragic is that?
I’ve been in love with Lincoln Andrews since we were kids and he stuck up for me against my brother and played tea parties with me in the treehouse. I’ve also avoided him for the past year because he broke my heart…more than once.
Now we’ve been thrown together at a tropical resort to celebrate my parents’ second wedding, and things are intense and getting worse, no thanks to an insane plan my friends cooked up to get me my dream man.
No one else even comes close to what Linc means to me. He’s always there for me, but is it because he cares for me too—or only because I’m his best friend’s little sister?
It’s time I find out once and for all…but what if our crazy plan blows up in my face and ruins everything?

Read book 1: Bailey and the Bad Boy
REVIEW: 5 STARSEver since meeting Indie in book 1, Bailey and the Bad Boy, and seeing how madly in love she was with her brother's best friend, I wanted to know more about her and Lincoln. I wanted to read about their "impossible" situation and see if they'd figure a way around their predicament.
The moment I got my hands on this book, I was a goner!! This story had my full attention and there wasn't a thing that would make me stop reading...well, aside from the fact that I had to sleep, that is.
Indie had been in love with Lincoln all her life. He was always there alongside her brother, making sure Indie was always safe and taken care of. He made sure any and all boys stayed away from her too. Indie just thought he was protective of her because he saw her as a little sister. She hoped to be wrong but Lincoln never showed her otherwise. In fact, whenever they'd have a moment, he'd make sure to push her away rather quickly. She never knew which way was up or down with him.
So she left.
A few years later, she's forced to face the music. Her parents are renewing their wedding vows and they're both in the wedding. Now, of course, an already stressful situation was made even more stressful (but comically so) for Indie because her and Bailey's best friend, Jack, decided to be her pretend boyfriend. Out of the blue. Now, mind you, Jack is gay, so in reality, there was NOTHING there between them, but it was fun seeing him push Linc's buttons. Jack knew that would light a fire under his butt and get him to admit to Indie, and himself, how he really felt.
The chemical attraction and sexual tension between Indie and Linc SIZZLED. Holy cow, did it ever. I was READY for them to finally be together! In more ways than one, if you know what I mean, LOL!
Anyway, this book was seriously REALLY GOOD and one I recommend you grab! I love Lincoln....and Jack LOL!! It was amazing seeing Ryder and Bailey (#RyderFreakingJones!!) and I cannot wait for Harper and Nate's book! Eek!! FIVE STARS!
EXCERPT:I smiled at her. It wasn’t a friendly smile. It was sinister. Her eyes widened, and she moved back on the rock, knowing I was coming for her.
“You better lose that dress real quick, Princess. I’d hate for it to get wrecked.” I crept closer. Panic marred her features. She knew all too well that I meant what I said.
“You wouldn’t.” She held her hands out to stop me.
“Come on, you know me better than that. You’re getting in this water. It’s just up to you whether your pretty dress is coming in with you.” I turned my back to her. “You have until the count of three. If you’re not in the water by then, I’m turning around regardless of whether you’re still dressed or not.”
“Linc, I’m not skinny-dipping with you.” Her voice quivered a touch with nerves.
I chuckled. “No one said anything about skinny-dipping, but please don’t let me stop you if you feel inclined to swim naked.” I reached for the waistband of my boxers, and intending to mess with her a little more, I removed them completely. “I might just join you.” I threw my underwear over my shoulder and onto the rock.
I was surely going to hell for this.
“Linc! Oh, my god!” I looked over my shoulder at her to find her face buried in her hands.
“To the count of three, Indie,” I warned one last time.
What was I doing? She was Nate’s sister.
And she had Jack-ass for a boyfriend.
She was completely off limits.
It was silent. I turned to find her standing on the rock, twisting her hands nervously in front of her. Her dress…at her feet.
Lace. White lace. Matching.
I was going to hell.
And I didn’t care. I didn’t care that she was Nate’s sister. I didn’t care that she had a boyfriend. I didn’t care that she was entirely off limits. She was mine. Always had been. And one way or another, I wasn’t leaving this island without getting what I wanted.
