Seducing Simon by @maya_banks #Firemen #REVIEW
April showers bring May flowers. The weather is heating up and so are we! Join us every day this week for our homage to hot, hunky fireman - who doesn't love a man in uniform? The Indulgent Bloggers chose April as Fireman extravaganza - a week of assorted fireman stories so hot, you'll wish you had a sprinkler system!
One fateful night, Toni Langston seduces her best friend, the guy she's been in love with forever. Two problems-he doesn't remember a thing that happened and now she's pregnant. Toni Langston has been in love with Simon, her best friend, for years. The night Simon breaks up with his long time girlfriend, he and Toni make love. Toni is devastated and humiliated when, in the heat of the moment, he calls her by his girlfriend's name. The next morning, Simon remembers nothing of the previous night and Toni is only too relieved not to remind him. Two months later, she discovers she's pregnant. She wants Simon to love her, apart from any obligation he might feel because of the baby. So she embarks on a quest to seduce her best friend, to make him see her as more than a little sister, to make him love her as much as she loves him. It works. Maybe too well. Now when things are perfect, she faces telling him of the secret she's kept.
A big thanks for all that our fireman and emergency people do for our communities!
Toni has been in love with her roommate Simon for as long as she can remember. Unfortunately, he only sees her as a little sister. When Simon breaks up with his girlfriend and comes home intoxicated Toni takes advantage and sleeps with him. A couple of months later she is pregnant and he doesn’t remember their encounter.
Toni wants the dream package, family, house, kids, and most of all Simon. She feels awful for not telling him what happened and knows he would do the right thing because he really is a good guy, but wants him to love and be with her for her and not because of the baby. Simon starts to have feelings and fantasies about Toni but c’mon she’s pregnant, Matt’s little sister and his roommate. He doesn’t want to mess up their friendship and living arrangements.
I really enjoyed this book. Maya Banks has you getting involved with her characters whether you want to or not. It’s a quick fun read – even though I recommend you keep a few tissues close by.
