Angelica has had David as a friend, confidant and bowling buddy forever. Lately, though, he’s on her mind a lot—and she’s not thinking about the kind of scoring they do on bowling night. Trouble is, David’s not single and Angelica isn’t willing to risk their friendship for sexual gratification.

David’s been unsatisfied with his dead-end relationship for a while now. After he mans up and breaks it off, he has to overcome an even bigger hurdle—facing his true feelings. Much to his surprise, the perfect woman has been right in his own lane the whole time.

Once David’s realized that Angelica’s the one for him, he’s ready to get the ball rolling on their relationship. He’ll stop at nothing to prove to Angelica he’s right up her alley.

What happens when you’ve been friends with a guy so long that he won’t see you as a potential lover? The author plunged straight into the drama of this story with Angelica in a shouting match with David about his current girlfriend. Immediately, you get the feeling that she’s a tad jealous and maybe this is the turning point where she feels she’d like David to be more than just friends.

Angelica is portrayed as a tough girl who hangs out with the guys and goes bowling with them. David seems to be at the mercy of his current girlfriend. You think maybe he should dump her long before he actually does.

This opens the door for Angelica to make her move, but will she? I think I can give away the storyline by telling you yes. The former "we’re only just good friends" finally have sex, lots of sex. As you might expect with the simmering sexual tension that’s been brewing between them, it gets steamy. Both of them don’t hold back on their desires and pleasing one another.

The dialogue was good, pacing fast and the story had a good overall flow to it. Only thing I would have liked to have seen was a longer storyline. Maybe stretching things out more to develop the characters and for us to have more time with them.

If you’re looking for a quick sexy story for some holiday reading, Spin Action might be for you.
