Summary (cr: goodreads)

Construction worker Russell Hart has been head-over-work boots for Abby Sullivan since the moment he laid eyes on her. But he knows a classy, uptown virgin like her could never be truly happy with a rough, blue-collar guy like him. If only she'd stop treating him like her personal hero—a role he craves more than oxygen—maybe he could accept it.

With the future of her family's hedge fund on her shoulders, Abby barely has time to sleep, let alone find love. And her best friend Russell acting like a sexy, overprotective hulk any time their Super Group goes out in public definitely isn't helping her single status. But after a near-tragedy lands Russell in her bed for the night, Abby's suddenly fantasizing about what he looks like shirtless. Chest hair and tattoos—who knew?

As Russell struggles to keep Abby at a safe distance, she begins to see through his tough-talking exterior—and acknowledge her own feelings. Now she's ready to turn the friend-zone into foreplay…and make him lose control.

My Review: (also in goodreads)
Broke and Beautiful series: Chase Me, Need Me

Just when I thought I had the perfect friend chemistry among Daniel, Brent and Matt in the Line of Duty series, I was wrong. The chemistry between Louis, Ben and Russell blew it out of the water. As there was a stoic brooding one in that triumvirate of the Line of Duty series, the trio of Broke and Beautiful series were all equally humorous with each having their own amusing character. As I read this, I dreaded the fact that this series will finally come to an end meaning this book will be the closure and would fill out the missing gaps of the first 2 books. Since Louis and Roxy, Ben and Honey were now coupled, this leaves Russell and Abby. Russell who is attracted to Abby for quite some time is friendzoned by Abby who out of their other friends' frustration was oblivious to it. They have differences in statuses, Abby who was filthy rich and Russell who has his own small business. Russell has that insecurity because of his past and just because Abby was rich doesn't mean her character was smug and snobby, in fact she was too lovable and loyal...that's what I like about her.
"Friend. I don't want to be your friend Abby, I want to be your husband." Yep, Russell you are definitely swoon-worthy.

Till the next read...
