Krista Nelson loves being a pediatric nurse. What she doesn’t love is her demanding boss and stressful workload. Fortunately, Krista knows she can count on a waterfront happy hour every Wednesday with her childhood best friend, Noah Sawyer, the one part of her life she never wants to change. But, like it or not, things are changing—because Krista can’t stop wondering what would happen if she grabbed Noah by the collar and kissed him like it was her job.
Bored of the superficial women he’s been dating, Noah’s putting his love life on hold so he can focus on his family’s high-end fishing business. Sure, there are moments when he’s tempted by Krista’s soft lips and killer smile—but her friendship is too important to Noah. How could he let himself jeopardize everything they share? The trouble is, if he doesn’t take the real risk of opening his heart, Noah might just let the perfect catch get away.
I LOVE Krista and Noah. Since reading Forbidden Kisses I've been dying to see what would come of these two best friends. Noah struggles with his past and fears commitment after an event that happened in college. He doesn't want to ruin his friendship with Krista but she's becoming harder and harder to resist. Krista is a hard working nurse. She's the girl next door and everyone loves her. I love that she cares for others and will do anything for her friends. She's very easy to relate to and a formidable protagonist.
Once again, Annie Rains knocks it out of the park. I've not missed a book of hers yet and I don't plan to. If you love sexy fishermen captains and loving, strong female protagonists I highly recommend Stolen Kisses.
