Friends and Lovers 
 3 of 5 stars false 
Can the man of Lauren's dreams save her from the man in her nightmares?
Wes Dunlop was a hot commodity in high school and the ruin of good reputations, so it was easy to criticize the guy when his sister did it too. Then Lauren McKay actually met her best friend's brother, and she was intrigued. When he came to her rescue, she was doomed. Afraid to admit her change of heart, Lauren hid her secret from both of them.
Fifteen years later Wes is back. Now a dedicated cop, he's determined to win Lauren—the girl he can't forget and the only one his sister demanded he leave alone. But he finds that Lauren's life is a lot more complicated than he imagined.
Personal tragedy made Lauren a fierce defender of battered women. However, when a dangerous gunman tracks his wife to Lauren's shelter, the protector becomes the target. Her life suddenly in the balance, nothing will stop Wes from doing everything in his power to rescue her.
Content Warning: some violence, sensual sex


****This book was part of a blog tour I received a copy for my honest review****
Wes was the guy everyone wanted in high school, Lauren was best friends with his sister. They both had feelings for each other but didn't act on it, fifteen years later the two of them find themselves together again and Wes has to not only keep her safe but find a way to fight the demons of her past. This was a really good book, Laurens past was heart breaking and I felt for the woman. Wes was a good man and protector. Domestic abuse is a hard subject to write about and I think the author did a good job showing how harsh and brutal is can be, while at the same time showing that things can change and get better. As much as I liked the characters and enjoyed their story I had problems with a few things, there were some inconsistencies in the story. I won't get into those because I don't do spoilers, but if those were fixed then this book would be a solid four for me. As it stands Friends and Lovers is still a good read and well worth the time is takes to read it.
