Jeni Acerna is a twenty-eight year old woman, whose longstanding sexual relationship with her best friend, Brian Hamilton, has been both blissful and troublesome. She has been unable to commit herself to another relationship because no one can compare to Brian in or out of bed. She has been in lust (and love) with him for years. But she is afraid to tread down the romantic path with Brian for fear of losing his friendship. After several months of not seeing each other, Jeni and Brian meet in Cleveland for a friend’s wedding. Their weekend getaway, however, is anything but normal. They agree to not have sex for the first twenty-four hours they are together. The first to beg for sex owes the other $500. Jeni’s intent is to see if there is something more to her and Brian that just unbelievable sex. After a tortuous night, their sexual attraction is more than either can bear. Their passion erupts and their sexual relationship picks up where it left off…hot and heavy. However, this time, Brian wants Jeni… and not just in his bed. Can he convince her the risk is worth taking?
More Than Friends was the most fun I’ve had in under 50 pages in a while. I love these stories where the person you are meant to be with forever is actually the person who has been there the whole time.
Jeni and Brian have been friends forever, since they were children. Now he is in Ohio and she is in Florida, and her best friend is getting married. Unfortunately for Jeni, she’s just broken up with another man, and has no date. Good thing she always has Brian.
Jeni and Brian’s history has been so sexually charged that they can barely keep their hands to themselves when they see each other under normal circumstances. But this time Jeni has put a stop to all of that, but as soon as she sees him she knows the stop has to go. And therein comes the bet.
This story was terrific. Both of the characters were fun and enjoyable, and I didn’t have a single complaint about either one. The bet was awesome, but $500? Whoa!! That’s a lot of money! I think I would be drinking some warm milk and going to bed for the night before I thought about losing $500. But then, I don’t know Brian.
When they finally do pair up the sex is incredible. It’s hot. The story itself was passionate and exciting. It left me feeling happy and content, and maybe it’s the PMS talking, but yes, there might have been a tear of joy somewhere in there.
If you are a fan of these types of shorter stories, then I definitely think More Than Friends is one you should add to your list. I’m finding more and more than I am really enjoying these shorter adventures. This one in particular was perfect from start to finish, and I couldn’t have been happier. Jessica Jayne is definitely a new author to me, but I’m going to keep a close eye on her. I see she has another book out, and you can bet your ass I’m about to read it!

About the Author...
I am a born and raised small town Ohio girl, who moved to the Sunshine State after graduating from college. I graduated with a bachelor's degree in English because I could not imagine doing anything else but reading and writing. It is such a pleasure to be able to share all the stories in my head!
In the journey of life, I also became a wife and a mother of three children. So, life is always an adventure. But the love of writing has never died.
My favorites: I love to read and write... obviously! But I also enjoy all sports, especially college football and the Ohio State Buckeyes! Go Steelers! Go Rays! I LOVE to travel... LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to travel. And I love sharing my love to travel with my children. I love to drink Teavana teas! I love a good glass of wine, especially if it comes from a bottle made by the FOOLS wine club… yep, I’m a member of that! J I love hanging out with my family and my friends! Big fan of music, but love nothing better than putting on my jean shorts, tank top, cowboy boots and hat and watching Tim McGraw belt it out! I’m a sucker for a cowboy hat! J
