AdamTrue or false? Men and women can’t be friends. I used to say true, until I met Kayla.
Yes, she’s a goddess, but it’s completely platonic. So when she asks me to pose as her fiancé at a party, I’m all in. Especially since her sleazeball ex will be there. Can you believe this weasel dumped her at the altar? I’ve got your back, Kayla. What are friends for?
But now I’m worried I played the part too well because we’re heading home, and she makes a confession: she’s tired of saving herself for marriage and wants me to be her first. Her first!
I can’t go there. The woman has committed relationship written all over her, something I’m never doing again for good reason.
Except when I tell her no, she starts considering other candidates. I can’t let her be with some random guy! I can’t cross the line either. She doesn’t know what she’s asking! She doesn’t know what she’s doing! Someone has to stop her.
KaylaOnly Adam will do.
This romantic comedy stands alone with a swoonworthy happy-ever-after! No cliffhangers.

DASHING by Kylie Gilmore
Kayla and Adam’s love story in Dashing: A Friends to Lovers Romantic Comedy by Kylie Gilmore, book two in her Unleashed Romance series, is a steamy, romantic comedy, of two people, one who is a virgin and the other who can’t stop thinking about it.
While Adam was working on Kayla’s brother’s house, she decided they were friends because of all the time they spent talking, or maybe it was her doing the talking. When she asks Adam to pose as her fiancé at a party, he says yes as her nut-job ex would be there.
How her ex could show his face after dumping Kayla at the altar was beyond Adam. While driving home, Kayla confesses to Adam that she’s a virgin and tired of saving herself for marriage. After all, look where that got her. Not only that, but she wants Adam to be her first.
After his fiancée cheated and walked out on him, Adam swore he would never get into another serious relationship. Telling Kayla no doesn’t stop her from considering other candidates; which Adam is determined not to see happen. When Adam’s ex- fiancée moves back to town, for the summer, he seeks Kayla and asks to continue the fake fiancée situation in exchange for helping her with her virginity.
These two might be opposites in that Kayla was outgoing and Adam was quiet but they were perfect for each other. All the little things Kayla did for Adam and his dog Tank were sweet. Adam was determined to go slow with Kayla, taking things one baby step at a time; not that Kayla tolerated it very well. Each step, each time together, each date, just made Kayla and Adam love each other more.
Ms. Gilmore wrote a wonderful and moving story that is definitely not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sizzling chemistry, amusing banter, and endearing secondary characters giving Adam and Kayla chance at love, happiness and the possibility of a forever together. I highly recommend Dashing to other readers and look forward to the next book in the series.
