Blurb:
Hard core fucking.

It’s not what I really want, but it’s all he has to offer. He’s filled with turmoil and heartache and regrets, but for two hours every Wednesday all he feels is me. How much I desire him, how desperate he makes me, how much I’d like things to be different between us. Real.

He used to be my best friend back before he got married. And now? Now, he’s a young widower. It’d be wrong on so many levels to expect something more from him. So I give him what he needs. Dark delicious fucking. But I know I can’t keep this up. I’ve already given him my body, my soul. I want him to have my heart. It might drive him away forever, but that’s a risk I’m forced to take.

Wednesday is an angsty romp told from dual points of view. If you’re in the mood for something quick and dirty, you’ve found it. Proceed at your own risk.

My Review:
A short, fun, sexy read that will leave you begging for more.

Kendall Ryan is fast becoming a must-read author for me. When I read an ARC of her latest book, a sample of this book was in the back and I wanted to get my hands on a copy asap, because the premise was SO intriguing. I was, therefore, delighted when the opportunity arose to read this in advance of publication.

It didn’t disappoint. Shaw has suffered the loss of his new wife and he is leaning heavily on his former BFF Chloe for support. It just so happens that that support takes the form of, ahem, “hard-core fucking.” This has been going on for months, and while Chloe initially felt guilty now she’s feeling a maelstrom of different emotions. She’s been in love with Shaw for years and he’s the first guy to set her bed (and her world) on fire so she is reluctant to end their arrangement. But all the sneaking around on Wednesdays and the way he keeps cutting her out is starting to wear her down. Then his actions escalate, becoming confusing and hurtful. It’s not intentional – it’s just that Shaw is a bit of a mess.

Now, initially, I was thinking that Shaw was a right selfish bastard. Yes, he was grieving but it was still no way to treat his childhood friend. There were times where I wish Chloe had pushed him away – she did, eventually, and I was glad that she developed some self-respect and some backbone.

The sex scenes were well written and smoking hot. I liked how their relationship progressed toward the end and it was much more romantic.

There are a couple of moral-dilemma-type issues/situations in this book that make you think (or at least it made me think) and I like when a book is more than just the sum of the expected exterior.

This book was very well written, and it flows smoothly. The characters and plot are as developed as you can get with a novella. Signature Kendall Ryan. A superb choice if you are in the mood for an emotional friends-to-lovers with-a- twist quick read.

Thanks to the author and Inkslinger PR for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
