Kaleb (Alluring Indulgence) by Nicole Edwards
Zoey Stranford might’ve had a crush on the sexy boy next door since middle school, but she’s a woman now, and that crush has turned into a full blown case of lust. So why is it that at twenty nine, her libido decides to ramp into high gear and the only thing she can focus on is the intensely sexy, scorching hot boy next door who is definitely not a boy anymore?
The only problem is that Zoey and Kaleb have been best friends for as long as she can remember. Not to mention, Kaleb and his brothers are working on buying Stranford land to build a new resort, and she’s more than a little hesitant about his intentions.
Kaleb Walker has had his eye on Zoey for close to twenty years, but never before has he considered taking their friendship to the next level, no matter how many fantasies he’s had about her over the years. That doesn’t explain why Kaleb is hell bent on having her – in as many ways as possible.
Kaleb finds himself in a precarious situation. His brothers have nominated him to pursue Zoey’s father about purchasing the land needed to get their new resort off the ground. Finding out that Carl Stranford is on the brink of foreclosure and Zoey might just lose her house and the land, Kaleb now has to convince her to put aside her pride and let him help her.
It doesn’t take long before the flames start burning bright and hot, and the two of them burn up the nights and the days as they explore each other’s forbidden fantasies. But can their friendship survive a business transaction or the new friends with benefits clause? Or will they realize that they’ve been overlooking something much deeper that’s been right in front of them all along?

I don't know about y'all, but to me there is always something rewarding about a friends turned lovers book that I find extremely satisfying. Maybe it's their shared past, maybe it's the fact that they've established a closeness that goes beyond lust, maybe it's just that they've always had a thing for the other but never took it further because they were afraid... but there always seems to be something a little more special about these books to me and Kaleb is probably one of my favorite friends turned lovers books to date!
Zoey hasn't exactly had it easy and the fact that her best girl friend has started putting ideas in her head about how hot her best friend is has made life a little more awkward. So when she starts fantasizing about Kaleb and then finds out a little bit of information about her dad... things get even more awkward... that is, until Kaleb puts the moves on her. And boy does he know how to put the moves on her.
Kaleb has had a thing for Zoey for years but never acted on his feelings because he didn't think she was interested in that way. She meant the world to him and he was afraid of losing her... until he walks in on a little conversation. Like Zoey, things get a little awkward for him, but then he decides to go for it.
But the best part about Kaleb is....
This book was insanely hot.. like melt your panties hot... like so hot I felt my own eyes glaze over with lust! Oh. My. Goodness. It was seriously hot!
It was clear these two had chemistry and a lot of it so when that move was finally made... it's like it exploded and I couldn't wait for them to get to the good stuff.
Nicole Edwards is another author that has been added to my automatic one-click list... her writing style has an easy flow with the perfect amount of description that you can't help but feel as if you're an actual part of the book. I'm definitely looking forward to reading more of her work!
I definitely recommend Kaleb... but here's a little warning for you - make sure you've got an extra set of panties handy!
