Today I’m so happy that we get to be a part of the Blog Tour for Katee Robert’s newest release (Happy Release Day yesterday btw)!! My work world has seriously been encroaching on my reading and stuff lately (good thing I love what I do!). I hope that y’all will check out this book and if you haven’t read any of Katee’s other books I encourage you to check her out! She just writes fun books! I swear the first book of hers I read – Wrong Bed, Right Guy – is still one of my faves and I’ve read it so many times!! So check out my review below and then go meet Avery & Drew!! Laters. ~ Amber
He’s going above and beyond the call of duty…
Avery Yeung’s biological clock just went off early. Thanks to her family’s medical history, she’s running out of time to get knocked up. And the only guy within donating distance? Her overprotective-and irritatingly hot-best friend. So clearly she needs an anonymous donor…
Anonymous donor? Over Sheriff Drew Flannery’s dead body. While daddyhood will never be in the cards for a man with his past, Drew won’t let Avery shop for a “popsicle pop.” He’ll do what’s right for his best friend by doing his best friend. But only if they do it properly.
But there’s nothing “proper” about it. Between the bed, the kitchen counter, and against his squad car, Avery and Drew are having the hottest sex ever. They can’t get enough of it-or each other. And without knowing it, they’ve crossed the one line that could ruin their friendship forever…
Meet Avery & Drew in Katee Robert’s newest sexy standalone from Entangled Brazen!

What happens when your best friend is 1)of the opposite sex and totally hot, 2)knows all your secrets and fears, and 3)is the one person who makes you feel completely whole? Well in Falling for His Best Friend, Katee Robert shows us just what happens to Drew Flannery when he realizes that his best friend Avery Yeung is the answer to every question he’s ever had. What a great ride this story was for me! I always love Katee’s writing. Her stories are just real and grounded and they just make me feel good, and this new one is no exception!
We first met Avery and Drew when they set up her friend Bri and Drew’s brother Ryan in the first Out of Uniform book, In Bed with Mr. Wrong; so if you’ve read it you know that the two of them are masters of coming up with a scheme. But their story is less about a scheme and more about what happens when two people that are the best at just being friends, find out they could be even better at being everything. Avery is wanting to have a baby before her chance to do so is taken from her, but when Drew discovers that she’s going to use a sperm donor he freaks because the idea of Avery having an anonymous man’s baby just doesn’t work for him. Avery is freaked both by his reaction and his offer, though initially she doesn’t realize he actually wants to go about it the old-fashioned way; which I admit was pretty funny. So when these two finally start down the path to ‘make a baby’ they are both rocked by how good the chemistry and the sex is between them. As much as they want to believe it’s ‘just sex’, both are having feelings and figuring out how good being together really feels. It’s also scary because Drew has demons and fears that are keeping him from fully going all in, and Avery is scared to let herself admit how she really feels because if they lose each other can either of them survive?
I just enjoyed every minute of this read! It’s a good pace and a good balance of humor, sexy chemistry and heart. Great job Miss Katee!! Can’t wait for more!

All she had to do was pick up the phone and make the call.
Well, she refused to be a coward, and there was never a better time than now. She dialed, hating herself for holding her breath, and nearly hung up in a panic when he answered,
Her nervous energy got away from her, and words popped out of her mouth before she could think better of them. “Morning! Just calling with your daily sex status report.”
A heartbeat, and then he laughed. “Okay, I’ll bite. How’d I do?”
“Oh, you know, just fine.”
“Fine?” A car door slammed somewhere in the distance.
“Sweetheart, that was a far sight better than ‘fine.’”
She was going to get through this with sheer bravado. The only other option was to sit down and talk about their feelings, which so wasn’t on the menu if Avery had anything to say about it. A little more relaxed now, she settled onto the rocking chair and propped her feet on the chest. “It was a solid six.”
“That’s so cute when you mix up your numbers. Yesterday was a ten.”
She paused, pretending to consider. “Oh, no, definitely not a ten. I would have noticed if Sam Elliott or Sean Connery showed up.”
“You have seriously questionable taste.”
“I do not. I have excellent taste. Those voices…” She sighed, putting a little extra breathiness into it. “Actually, I’m adding Benedict Cumberbatch to that list. He’d be a ten.”
“No. Absolutely not. I draw the line at being outranked by a man with better cheekbones than most women. He is not attractive.”
“Don’t be jealous that you can’t make women come just by talking to them.”
“Two words—phone sex.”
Her laugh died. After what they’d just done, she didn’t like the reminder that he’d rocked other women’s worlds, but she’d better get used to it. This was Drew, and he’d never had a problem with the ladies. “Kudos to you, then.”
His tone shifted, the playfulness disappearing. “What are you doing for lunch?”
You. No, wait, she couldn’t say that. She still didn’t know where they stood. She couldn’t just assume they were going to keep having sex because they were joking about yesterday.
Avery twisted her hair. “I hadn’t decided.”
“I’ll make it easy on you—my place, noon.”
The growl in his voice made her shiver, but she forced a laugh. “Are we going to walk twenty paces and have a shootout?”
“If by shootout, you mean you’re going to come screaming my name, then yes.”
She ran her fingers over his chest, enjoying his well-defined pecs. Drew was in killer shape, and his upper body could seriously fill out a T-shirt. She leaned down and flicked his nipple with her tongue, before moving further south.
His breathing changed as she hovered over the waistband of his sweats, saving her from the debate of if she was really going to make a move on him while he was sleeping. “You going to stop there?”
She looked up to find his eyes open. Stop? Not a chance. “I’m considering.”
“Keep it up and I might have to jump you instead.”
No way was she missing this chance. “Shh. It’s my turn to drive things tonight.”
She hooked his waistband and pulled it down over his hips, the sight of his cock temporarily stealing her breath.
She’d seen him naked a few times, but the impact only seemed to be growing instead of decreasing like it should. Nothing about this was going like it should, from the sex to the forbidden emotions welling up in her chest. She didn’t want to think about that, though.
Not now, maybe not ever.
The only thing she did want occupying her headspace was how good it felt to touch him. She slid down a little further to get comfortable and then gave his cock a slow stroke. Truth be told, she could play with him all night, but she didn’t think his patience would hold for that kind of treatment unless he was tied down.
An idea for later maybe…
She licked up the underside of his cock, earning a hissed breath. Emboldened, she took him in her mouth, as deep as she could manage, mirroring the slow stroke she’d just done with her hand. Drew cursed, his hands spasming in her hair.
Power beat through her. She could drive him out of his mind like this, with just her mouth and her hands. It would be the easiest thing in the world. She moved to shallower strokes, using her tongue to swirl around the head of his cock.
“Avery, I—” She met his gaze as she licked him, and Drew cursed again, louder. “Holy fuck. Come here.”
Katee Robert learned to tell stories at her grandpa’s knee. Her favorites then were the rather epic adventures of The Three Bears, but at age twelve she discovered romance novels and never looked back.
Though she dabbled in writing, life got in the way—as it often does—and she spent a few years traveling, living in both Philadelphia and Germany. In between traveling and raising her two wee ones, she had the crazy idea that she’d like to write a book and try to get published.
Her first novel was an epic fantasy that, God willing, will never see the light of day. From there, she dabbled in YA and horror, before finally finding speculative romance. Because, really, who wouldn’t want to write entire books about the smoking-hot relationships between two people?
She now spends her time—when not lost in Far Reach worlds—playing imaginary games with her wee ones, writing, ogling men, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
