Friends with benefits was never the plan…


Melanie Jacobs is in trouble. With three jobs—including running her ranch—and dwindling funds, she’s exhausted. Not to mention desperately trying to hide a secret. Unfortunately, her best friend Colton Freeze knows all too well that’s something is going on, and he won’t give up until he knows exactly what he needs to fix.
Then Colton learns the truth—that Melanie’s future happiness rests in the fickle hands of fate, and her chances for having a family are shrinking with every passing day. Her only comfort is Colton, but when a heated argument between them turns into an even hotter kiss, the boundaries of their friendship are erased, leaving only a scorching-hot hunger for more.
Every kiss—every touch—is a stolen pleasure. But will their new friends-with-sexy-benefits arrangement bring them closer together, or destroy everything they once shared?

Friends with benefits was never the plan…

This was not my first book by Rebecca Zanetti, but it was the first book I read for this series. I’m a sucker for a steamy friends to lovers story, and this one delivered it in spades. You get a sexy cowboy, a sassy heroine, 2 friends that grew up together, and some verra steamy cowboy loving. If you’re looking for a light and easy read, that’s low on unnecessary angst, high on steam, has likeable characters and a great story then look no further than Rising Assets.

Melanie and Colton have known each other since they were kids, along with Hawk the three of them were best friends. But life took them in different directions, though they still stayed in touch. Colton left to pursue numerous college degrees and a career while Melanie stayed behind with her ailing grandparent. Now Colton is back only to discover Melanie barely making ends meet holding 3 jobs, but there’s a new undercurrent of sexual awareness that now runs between them.

Colton set out to help her out however he can, no matter how much Melanie may fight it. What was once friendly bickering and flirty barbs begins to turn into something much more over time, until one steamy kiss changes everything between them.

Sometimes you’re in the mood for a light and sexy read, and that’s exactly what this was. The chemistry between Colton and Melanie was palpable, and when they get together…let’s just say Rebecca Zanetti knows how to write a scorching hot love scene.

Digging his fingers in, taking control, he slid out and then back in with force. Increasing his speed as well as his strength, he began to pound. Hard, angled, and in perfect timing, he thrust into her. They moved in tune with each other, instinct and history whispering something neither would accept right now.

I liked that the switch from friends to lover wasn’t instant, they both fought it for as long as they could. It was also a lovely story beyond all the hot scenes. Colton was just the right amount of sweet and domineering. Melanie was sassy without it being overbearingly so. The story kept me intrigued until the end. What I would typically find as cheesy in any other book was written so well here that I found myself reading it with a goofy smile on my face, particularly the epilogue.

This may not have been a WOW 5 star read, but it was a very solid 4 star; a feel god, sweet and steamy love story. I also really liked the tease that Miss Zanetti throws in about Hawk. I am utterly salivating for his book. Please GAWD let that book be next. There’s just something about a tortured hero that always pulls at all my pervy little heartstrings.
