She says she needs some help ... in the bedroom.
Come again? No, really come again.
Sweet, nerdy, lovable Keaton.
She's my best friend and has been for years. Sure she likes numbers and math, and thinks doing other people's taxes is fun. And I like ... none of that stuff. She's obsessed with her cat and reads novels I'll never understand, and yet we just click. There's no one I'd rather share breakfast burritos with or binge watch hours of Netflix. She's my person. And so when she takes off her glasses and asks me to help her improve her skills in the bedroom, I barely have to think about it.
Of course I'll help her. There's no one better for the job.
I've been there for her through everything, why should this be any different?
But what happens when she's ready to take her new-found confidence and move on?
I have been reading a lot of darker romances as of late and Love Machine was a welcomed change, it was sweet, it was sexy and it was funny. I loved the friendship between Keaton and Slate, the banter between them was spot on and their connection was strong.
I loved Slate, I am not gonna lie, I loved his POV the most throughout the book. Keaton, it took me a bit to warm up to, it’s not that she wasn’t likeable, she was very much so, it was I had problems connecting with her but once I did it was smooth sailing. Friend to lovers books are some of my favorites to read because that foundation is already there for something more. The reason why Slate helps Keaton out may have started off as helping a friend experience more sexually but quickly turns into more.
I really enjoyed Love Machine a lot and it was the welcomed change I was needing. This is one that needs to be on your TBR list for sure.
