The Fourth Time Charm
“Are you sleeping with my daughter?”
Not a question I want to hear from my coach. The man holding my pro future in the palm of his hand.
The answer: No.
The real answer: I’d sure as hell like to be.
Marisa’s been my best friend since third grade. And now she needs my help—and a place to stay. Senior year was supposed to be the year to keep some distance until the season finished and my draft prospects were safe.
But resisting her is becoming impossible. Movie Thursdays under the blankets. Study sessions on my bed. Wild party nights where I kept any guy interested at bay with a single glare.
Her dad can bench my ass for the entire season, so she’s off limits—for now.
She’s the only woman I’ve ever loved. And one heated night, I can’t stop fighting every cell in my body and can’t stop myself from sampling her sexy smile, her sweet smell, and her sultry curves.
We’re walking a tightrope with my future on the line. Let’s just make sure Coach doesn’t find out…
If you didn’t know, friends to lovers is my least favorite trope to read, so I wasn’t sure how this one was going to go. But I’m a huge fan of this series and Maya, so of course, I wasn’t going to miss out on this.
The Fourth Time Charm beat allllll my expectations and Maya wrote the hell out of this one. I’d say this is probably my favorite book out of the entire series. With The Second We Met coming up as the second favorite 😉
First of all, I can’t even tell you the amount of times that I cried during this. Marisa has been through soooo much and is definitely a little bit broken. One of the things that she cherishes the most is her friendship with L.J. Their bond is truly unbreakable and it’s pretty evident that there was always something more, but they just never chose to cross that line.
But when push comes to shove, eventually you reach your breaking point. And my goodness, more times and pure joy! L.J. was definitely one of the sweetest heroes I’ve ever read, and he’s just the absolute best for Marisa. This will definitely be a favorite re-read!
I love this book 3,000! If friends to lovers is your trope, ABSOLUTELY read this one ASAP. If it’s not, take a chance because it will not disappoint.
