If you re after a feel good sexy romance then this is one I d definitely recommend I received a copy of this courtesy of Entangled Publishing for an honest and unbiased opinion My Review Do you love a good sexy, nerd story If so, you need to read this book I liked it Scott and Cassy have been best friends forever He s a brilliant scientist She s an accountant Scott is in the process of developing a ground breaking nano technology that could mean everything for him in business and technology The issueit s almost ready to go, but he doesn t have the funding to produce his productand the competition is breathing down his neck trying to steal his invention out from underneath him His solutioncall Cassy for help She s smart, she s savvy, and she s socially graceful than him which is important as he s trying to woo an investor For Cassy, she needs the boost She s been running her own accounting company for a while and is admittedly very bored She s excited about the challenges Scott s company could providethe one catch, working so closely with Scott since she s in love with him There was a lot to this story than I expected It s a friends to lovers trope which I adore, but the problem with becoming involved with your best friend is that they already know you and your needs at least they think they do I had to giggle at the beginning of the romance when Scott would do something that Cassy has always suggested he do for girls, but then she would get ticked off because she knew the reasons she would suggest he do those thingslike give wildflowers when you re trying to let a girl down easy Scott is incredibly smart, but when it comes to women, he s clueless Before now, he s always gone to Cassy for advice He can t do that now and he s floundering But in other ways, that intimate knowledge of each other worked to strengthen them too When it came to Scott s father, Cassy could see past all Scott s bluster and anger to the vulnerability below I loved that depth of knowledge A new relationship wouldn t be able to spot those emotions and would have just been hurt by the anger That s why I love friends to lovers stories and this one was a fun one I liked the whole business aspect and what the two of them are trying to do with Scott s company I wasn t sure how it was all going to turn out, but in the end it worked and worked well This was definitely a winner in my opinion I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.

5 stars So I was really looking forward to this one, because I m a sucker for the friends turned lovers stories and this sounded right up my alley Scott and Cassy were dear friends, they lived apart but were always in touch, they shared everything, he was calling her because he needed her yeah, it was all in the recipe for an emotional and sexy read But with some bitter baggage for Scott and uncertainty about Cassy s future, there were some murky waters to get through first Cassy was the perfect heroine for this story, confident in her friendship with Scott but a fish out of water when it came to actually doing something about her attraction to him She was cute, sassy, and determined to be there for him, and it was exactly what he needed to snap him out of his denial Scott s personality didn t impress quite as much in my opinion, I felt like he was too cold at points But I liked what Cassy brought out in him He was so engrossed in his work that Cassy s presence was almost like this blazing siren call in the night He was perfectly content with things the way they were, but when the idea of something with his best friend was laid out in front of him he was walking around in a stupor when it came to her They had to work closely to get Scott s Dreamcatcher product the attention it needed if they were going to find an investor Cassy having to pretend she was his woman in an effort to keep the others at bay just thrust them into a situation where all of that close and personal time was bound to wreak havoc on their relationship And they were all kinds of hot together Even their first kiss had my heart racing when Scott uttered his God help me right before ravishing her lips With some drama over Scott s past and some heartache as uncertainty plagued their situation, there is plenty going on here at every moment to keep the reader hooked A highly enjoyable read by Joan Kilby Quotes Oh The shock of his warm, firm lips on hers was electric She softened, clinging to his shoulders, kneading his tense muscles beneath her palms He started to ease back, his eyes confused and dark With a low moan, she pulled him back in p 32Was she trying to drive him crazy Then he saw the smile playing around her lips For God s sake She must be teasing him again He should teach her a lesson about playing with fire, except that he would likely be the one to get burned p 34This was what he d been afraid of for years, that the day would come when work and other women and masturbating wouldn t be enough for him When he would need Cassy, and Cassy alone When no one, and nothing else, would satisfy him p 70Find this and of my reviews at In Mad About You, Cassy Morris gets an SOS call from one of her dearest childhood friends, Scott Thornton Scott is described as a hot geek, who is set to have his nanotechnology company skyrocket him to stardom, if another company doesn t get their first He needs Cassy s help Since she has the flexibility being the her own boss tax accountant she sets out to help him The problem is she has not seen him in over a year, and in that time he has only gotten better It doesn t help that she always had a crush on him and her past attempt letting him know failed miserably.
The story moves quickly once Cassy gets out to Washington and these friends quickly go from working roomates to fabricated engaged couple What is problematic is Cassy wants to believe the lie but feels Scott just doesn t see her that way We learn though, that Scott struggles with his feelings for Cassy too, but because of old demons from being abandoned by his father, he just doesn t see himself in a relationship and he doesn t want to lose his best friend Well you know what they say about best laid plans I found the story to be a quick read as it only took me a few hours to finish While I am typically a huge fan of stories which develop relationships among childhood friends, this one just fell a little short for me I didn t really feel the emotional connection with the characters throughout the story There were brief glimpses when they recounted tales of their first kiss or how Scott fell in love with Cassy but that was it The most emotion provoking part for me was when Scott shared his dream with Cassy That I loved, but then the story was over and unfortunately it just wasn t enough for me Thanks to Entangled Publishing for an ARC in exchange for an honest review Mad About YouAccountant Cassy Morris knows she s putting her heart on the line when she agrees to move in with her best friend, multi millionaire geek Scott Thornton while she manages his nanotechnology lab and finds an angel investor for his revolutionary new product She s loved him forever even though he s only ever regarded her as a friend But Cassy never could refuse Scott anything When Scott is named Seattle s sexiest man, the attention from women threatens to get in the way of him finishing his pet project and putting it on the market Cassy steps up once again and pretends to be his fianc A lifetime of repressed sexual tension explodes in a passionate affair Soon Scott is wondering how he can convince Cassy to turn their fake engagement into realityReview This is a wonderful friends to lovers story Cassy and Scott have been friends since they were 7 years old, when Scott got left at his Aunt and Uncles house following the death of his mother Years later, Scott is a gorgeous, geeky millionaire, who begs his best friend Cassy to come and help him get his nano product into the market and find investors Cassy sees this a the perfect opportunity to see if maybe this can lead to between the two of them.
I really enjoyed tension as they both fight to keep their best friend and keep from getting hurt when things escalate between Cassy and Scott sexually and emotionally There are lots of obstacles for the pair to overcome and not just about their feelings about each other Scott has issues because of his being left by his father which come to a head when he comes forward as a investor The scenes between father and son were great and full of emotion Cassy and Scott have fought hidden their feelings about each other for so long that there are a lot of missteps and hurt feelings before they overcome and get their HEA Now, it is not all emotion, there are some fun scenes and the intimate scenes between Cassy and Scott are super hot Great writing and characters that I could relate to made this an enjoyable read 4 StarsI got an ARC of this book from Entangled Publishing in exchange of an honest review.
Mad About You was a quick, cute read that takes one of my favorite plots the best friends to lovers and gives it a different twist Take geeky hot Scott who needs help financing his new invention and add his best friend Cassy who is bored in her life and looking for Sparks start to fly as soon as they are reunited after a year.
Mad About You was my first book by Joan Kilby and I will be on the look out for from her in the future I liked that the book didn t take the expected or predictable and even surprised me at times Cassy was fiery and willing to do whatever it takes to help out her friend and Scott was just a mess trying to juggle so many things in the air while fighting his attraction to Cassy Even though I enjoyed the story there were some things that threw me out of getting completely swept away and I really wish we could have had More background on the characters and interactions with Cassy and Scott and less about his invention financing struggles would have helped me connect with the characters I think there was too much trying to go on in 140 pages and it seemed to run out of steam at the end except the Epilogue was wonderful and I loved it and I found myself with a lot of questions at the end that I didn t get answered.
Mad About You would be a good book to grab when you want a quick and easy to read book that will get your mind off real life for a few hours.
Cassy has been in love with Scott for as long as she can remember She has always been there for him in anyway he needed She stood by him through the countless girlfriends and she will stand by him now His invention idea has been stolen and it s up to her to help him sell it before the competition does With his invention on the line he doesn t have time for woman to throw themselves at him so Cassy decides to pretend to be his fiance What started out as a sham to protect him turns into so much and now she doesn t who s acting any.
Scott has always known that if he ever needs someone he can trust be can call Cassy She has been the only reliable person in his life so when someone steals him invention idea it seemed reasonable to call her to help him What he didn t expect was his new found attraction for his best friend He thought if he ignored it that it would go away, but she isn t having any of that He couldn t control himself and he crossed a line Now he has to figure out how to convince her that he really wants to be with her while selling his invention.
I loved this book so much This book demands your attention from the very first page to the very last I loved that Cassy and Scott had preexisting history, and the struggles they face with trying to change their relationship into a romantic one I really have nothing bad to say about this book, it met my every expectation with flying colors All readers should definitely consider reading this book.
