Emma Hart - Intercepted - Book Review (ARC)

Publisher: Emma Hart, 2015.
Genre: New adult, contemporary, romantic suspense.
Length: 274 pages.

Intercepted is the third and final book in the By His Game Series.

I am a sucker for a story where friends become lovers. All that time spent being close, but never telling the other how deep their feelings go. This book has the added bonus of suspense and intrigue.

Reid North and Everleigh White have been friends since they bonded over a mutual hate of their mothers’ social events, as children.  Fourteen-year-old Ever knew that she’d always love Reid, but the four-year age gap meant the timing was never right. A year later, he was a father. By the time she was ready for college, she couldn't stand to be near him if she couldn't be more than his friend. So, she disappeared off to college without saying goodbye or contacting him again.

Four years later, Ever returns to L.A. when she discovers her boyfriend has been sleeping with her best friend. When Reid sees Ever again, he reveals that he wanted her too and he isn't wasting any more time. Their attraction is electric. He wants her and he's not taking no for an answer.
Unfortunately, their exes try to get in the way of their happiness.

Emma Hart beautifully captures the friendship between these two. They're so much alike. The playfulness between them made me laugh. I loved the memories of hiding behind curtains from their childhood.

Reid's son, Leo, is adorable with his fixation on cooties. The relationship Reid has with his son is beautiful. As is, the way Ever blends into their little family and loves Leo as if he was her own.
The villains (yes - plural) add drama to spice up the story even more. The author pulls the turmoil and dread out of those scenes, with great affect.

It's always sad when a series ends, but I'll be looking forward to so much more from Emma Hart.

Highly enjoyable read!
