About the Author
Renae Kaye writes contemporary and humor, all based in her home city of Perth, Western Australia. Renae Kaye is a lover and hoarder of books who thinks libraries are devilish places because they make you give the books back. She consumed her first adult romance book at the tender age of thirteen and hasn’t stopped since. After years – and thousands of stories! – of not having book characters do what she wants, she decided she would write her own novel and found the characters still didn’t do what she wanted. It hasn’t stopped her though. She believes that maybe one day the world will create a perfect couple – and it will be the most boring story ever. So until then she is stuck with quirky, snarky and imperfect characters who just want their story told. Renae lives in Perth, Western Australia and writes in five minute snatches between the demands of two kids, a forbearing husband, too many pets, too much housework and her beloved veggie garden. She is a survivor of being the youngest in a large family and believes that laughter (and a good book) can cure anything. You can contact her at renaekaye@iinet.net.au.

Can friends turned occasional lovers move beyond past mistakes and wrong assumptions to build something that can last?

Quiet bookworm Shane has a big secret—one he’s kept for fifteen years. AFL superstar Ambrose Jakoby grew up next door to Shane. They were close friends, and Shane supported Ambrose through school.

One night, everything changed.

Before Ambrose left Perth as a scared eighteen-year-old to head to Melbourne and take up his new footy career, Ambrose and Shane slept together.

For the next nine years, they continued a secret friends-with-benefits situation whenever Ambrose was in town. Shane never knew exactly where he stood or how to define Ambrose’s sexuality—and Ambrose didn’t know either. Then last Christmas, everything changed again, and a disagreement strained their friendship. Shane vowed to get over his unrequited love.

But Ambrose is back, recovering from an injury and hoping to make amends. He claims he’s ready for a real relationship. But Shane has to decide whether Ambrose means it and whether his Hufflepuff soul can take the chance.

In the name of transparency, I must own up to being a huge Renae Kaye fan, so any gushing in this review comes from both a place of love, and from the knowledge that this lady has yet to write a bad book!
As is the norm with this author's books, this story is a page turner. Great storyline, beautifully flowing writing that keeps you engrossed in the tale, and eager to know how things will progress. The big, and surprising difference between this book, and all Renae Kaye's others, is that I never really grew to like one of the MCs. I started out disliking him....fairly intensely in fact, and only really moved up as far as thinking he would maybe turn out alright with a bit of work!! But, even with the arrogant toad winning dear Shane's heart, I really enjoyed this story; it was engaging, Shane is just adorable, and I guess he must see something in Ambrose that I just didn't. Being loved by Shane was Ambrose's redeeming feature!
An extra plus for this book, is the fact that we get to catch up with characters from the three previous books in the series too.....and Jay is my all time fave!
Its a lovely story, absolutely recommended by this geek loving reviewer.
