Kristina Taylor's biological clock just went off. She has endometriosis. Now “who's your baby's daddy” just took on a completely new meaning. A brilliant plan for conception includes her hot best friend Johnny Huston. Taking him to bed won’t be a hardship—if she can only get him to play by her rules. After all, she wants to maintain their friendship. Not easy if he ends up being the best sex of her life.

Knock her up? Krissy has to be crazy. Or is she? Johnny has loved her since high school. Her plan might not include life after baby. His does. But how is he going to show her how good they can be together with all her rules—no kissing, no touching, no caressing. He can make love to her, but she’s determined not to enjoy it. To hell with that and to hell with her rules. He’s determined to show her friendship is the best foundation for a relationship.

But there are always complications…

With Johnny, Krissy is afraid to look to the future. Right now, she can’t get enough of the present, and she dreads the thought of losing what she’s had with him in the past.

Not so long ago, I enjoyed my first KyAnn Waters story. The characters were unforgettable, the sex was to die for, and the story swept me away. Needless to say, I’ve been a fan ever since. So when I was given the opportunity to review her newest, Johnny Loves Krissy, I couldn’t contain my excitement.

In this story, we are introduced to long-time best friends Johnny and Krissy, as well as their ragtag group of friends lovingly referred to as “the six pack”. Krissy has just learned that a medical problem she’s suffered from for years has advanced to the point that if she wants to have children, now is the time. She won’t have the opportunity to later, which means she has hard decisions to make. As she turns to Johnny for guidance, she realizes he is the only man for the role. She simply has no idea now to convince him of it. Johnny, of course, has been in love with Krissy all of his life. She’s sassy, she’s smart, and she's undeniably beautiful. When she tells him of her troubles, he knows he is the perfect person to be the father to her child. The only problem is convincing Krissy that while he’s a friend who can give her the baby she wants, he’s also the man who can give her the happiness she deserves.

As they tear down emotional barriers and break all of their “rules”, the friends turned lovers learn what sort of complications arise when sex becomes a part of the equation. The tension is high, as are the unstable and fluctuating emotions that develop from their confusion and newfound desire and affection for one another. The result is a story that is funny, steamy, and oh-so delectable. Johnny is positively swoon-worthy and Krissy is perfect as the commitment-phobe woman that is afraid to trust her best friend to become something more. I absolutely loved the stark and sharp dialogue, as well as the secondary characters that bring the story to life. There is so much heart packed into Johnny Loves Krissy, which makes it not only a sizzling erotic romp, but a heart-wrenching romance as well.

A definite must read for any KyAnn Waters fan -- heck, for any erotic romance fan! -- be certain to place Johnny Loves Krissy on your TBR list. My only complaint was that when it was over, I felt robbed -- I wanted more.
