A GIVEAWAY & Her Newest Release, 69 Mustang: Revved & Ready with Kacey Hammell...

69 Mustang isn’t all about the car. Of course not! The biggest variable of this story is the friends become lover’s premise. It is one that I love a lot, love read other stories featuring the same thing and in the end, love that they realize what is right in front of them. The answer to their prayers all along.

In honor of that, I thought I’d put together a little list of some of the most enjoyable (in my opinion) movies that feature friends who wake up to romance with their best friend.

1.       When Harry Met Sally

2.      Just Go With It

3.      Brown Sugar

4.      13 Going on 13

5.      Just Friends

6.      Reality Bites

7.         Some Kind of Wonderful

8.     And some might be surprised by this, but they get my heart whenever I watch them – from Harry Potter – Hermione & Ron *g*

Revved and Ready for passion, heat sizzles between two friends…

For Hayley Fitzgibbon, the heat wave blanketing her small town is nothing compared to the inferno inside her whenever she looks at her best friend, Rory. On the night of his parents’ anniversary party, she no longer resists her burning desire and makes it known how much she wants him. Secluded under a willow tree, down a lover’s lane, she’s revved and ready to claim her man on the top of his ’69 Mustang.

Excerpt © Kacey Hammell, 2013:

“There are some willow trees right up there. Park beneath them for privacy.”

“Hales,” he began, his voice unsteady.

“What’s the matter? Scared to be alone out here with lil ole me?” She laid her arm over his arm, silencing him, amazed once again by the wealth of muscle beneath his shirt. Gone was the tall flagpole type body he grew up with. The six pack abs and bulging biceps he sported now continuously held her in awe – and drooling. He definitely took care of himself.

Rory pulled in under the trees, glanced over at her, his eyes enflamed in heat and desire, then turned off the ignition.

Hayley undid her seatbelt, shifted toward him, and clasped the back of his neck, then pulled him close. She crushed her mouth to his.

He tasted so good. Intoxicating. Incredible. Fucking superb. She tangled her tongue with his. Shivers of delight spread along her body, nipples beading while juices gathered in her pussy.

Digging her fingers into his nape, anxiousness filled her to taste every inch of him but there wasn’t room to maneuver in the tight confines of the car.

“It’s too hot in here to sit. Let’s go outside,” she whispered. She pulled back and opened her door. Though the strangling humidity hadn’t dissipated much, a slight breeze skated along her skin. She welcomed the pleasure of the coolness against her body from the numerous days of nothing but stagnant humidity and the fire Rory stoked inside her.

Slamming the door, she tip-toed farther under the trees, careful not to sink into the grass in her stilettos, and waved him to follow her. “Come on,” she called.

Rory wiped a hand over his face.

“Trust me it’s much cooler out here.”

For the moment at least.

  1. Thank you for sharing 69 Mustang with your readers!

  2. It's an oldie: Some Kind of Wonderful. I love books with this trope. A little more contemporary in book form: Lover at Last by J.R. Ward is next up to read this weekend. Fingers crossed it doesn't let me down on it's friends to lovers story line.

    Ron and Hermione wouldn't have come to my mind, but it's true. I guess I just see them as kids.

  3. Sounds great. I just picked it up.
    For me it's got to be Some Kind of Wonderful. I can't help but watch it every time, no matter how often I've seen it

  4. Where the Heart Is with Natalie Portman and Three Men and a Little Lady. Thanks for the giveaway. I would love to read this book. Sounds very good.

  5. "Atonement" does. It's about a couple who have always been friends and then he realizes that he's been in love with her for years and makes a move. She also realizes the same thing. It's a beautifully, sad story.
    Thanks for the giveaway!
