by Rebecca Zanetti (Goodreads Author)Friends with benefits was never the plan…
Melanie Jacobs is in trouble. With three jobs—including running her ranch—and dwindling funds, she’s exhausted. Not to mention desperately trying to hide a secret. Unfortunately, her best friend Colton Freeze knows all too well that’s something is going on, and he won’t give up until he knows exactly what he needs to fix.
Then Colton learns the truth—that Melanie’s future happiness rests in the fickle hands of fate, and her chances for having a family are shrinking with every passing day. Her only comfort is Colton, but when a heated argument between them turns into an even hotter kiss, the boundaries of their friendship are erased, leaving only a scorching-hot hunger for more.
Every kiss—every touch—is a stolen pleasure. But will their new friends-with-sexy-benefits arrangement bring them closer together, or destroy everything they once shared?

I love this series and the meddling ways of Maverick Montana but....this book was not my favorite so far out of the three. I still adored it though.
Here we have the younger brother Colton who always has a plan. But what he didn't anticipate was falling for his best friend as part of his future plans. However, the town was betting on this plan.
Colton has always been best friends with Melanie Jacobs but while he was away at school things changed. When Colton comes home he sees Melanie differently for the first time ever.
While Colton was away Melanie has had to deal with many things but now she has a new personal dilemma and the last thing she wants is for her best friend and forever crush to find out about it.
The meddling ways of Maverick are all in cahoots with getting these two together but each townie has a specific date in this particular pool.
Even without the town's help he finds his happiness where he least expected.
With this book we get the same meddling fun, great characters, sexual chemistry and fun but with Colton and Melanie I felt their story a bit rushed and left me with wanting a bit more from them and the town.
I hope we get Dawn and Hawk's story next. This is such a fun romantic series.
3.5 Maverick Loving Thumbs up!
