Maverick Cruz and I started off as pen pals and became besties when we went to the same sports camp at age twelve.
He rooted for me at my soccer games.
I cheered for him at his hockey tournaments.
Through heartbreaks, new relationships, and failed friendships, we knew we could always count on each other.
That's why no one is more surprised--or panicked-- than I am when I start to develop different feelings for him. But Instead of telling him the truth, I agree to help him find a girlfriend.
Someone who is not me.
Someone who is so opposite of me that I have to make a list for the charade. The problem is, he wants to practice his dating skills with me. The corny pickup lines, the hand-holding, the door opening, the staring.
Before this, I thought sharing a house with him was an excellent idea. Who wouldn’t want to room with their best friend? Now, the close proximity is killing me. What’s worse is that I can’t stop looking at him like he’s a Greek god, and he can’t stop seeing me as his virginal little sister. Still, I push it aside, until one night, when he’s lying beside me in bed and I’m the one who forgets the rules and crosses the line between friends and something more.
It’s a horrible idea. He’s a player. I’m a virgin. Yet, I can’t seem to stop myself.
New item on my list: DO NOT FALL FOR YOUR BEST FRIEND.

Gahhhhhh! these Cruz brother's really have my heart soaring!!
These brother's are going to be death of me. First we read Jagger's story and now we got Mav's story. I'm hoping next we'll get Mitch's because I need to know what all these three boys' books will end, with a happy ending I'm sure :)
Maverick and Rocky are best friends and have been since they were adolescent's. They have also made a pack that they wouldn't cross that bridge either if things got hot and intense because they obviously can see that they were attracted to each other, but knew that crossing that silver lining would definitely ruin their friendship and that's the one thing they didn't want because they have always been there for each other, through thick and thin.
But then comes the day that they both can't hold back and they show their jealousy and make things so obvious between them. If Maverick is with a chick, Rocky gets really upset and jealous and vice versa. These two obviously were meant for each other but it seems like they're the only ones blind to to the fact that they should be more than just friends.
When they finally come to the conclusion that they should be more than just "friends" then they have to deal with the consequences. They'll have to decide if taking that bigger step would either ruin it or bring them together as a strong couple.
Claire Contreras has me giddy with this series and I'M DYING FOR MITCH'S STORY!!
