What happens when an almost thirty-year-old virgin agrees to let her Scottish footballer best friend give her some lessons in seduction?
Lots of banter, awkwardness, jealousy, and heat.
Midfielder Maclay “Mac” Logan is a loud-mouthed, tattooed ginger content with focusing on football. But when an adorably-freckled seamstress comes barrelling into his life, he finds Netflix-And-Bickering with her to be his new favourite pastime.
Freya Cook is used to being the invisible woman with a needle and thread, offering cheeky punch lines as she helps dress London’s finest. She’s plus-sized in body and spirit, and other than her friendship with Mac, talking to the opposite sex is one skill she never mastered.
However, after one innocent game of Never Have I Ever, Mac offers to play Love Coach for Freya.
What neither of them see coming are the feelings that develop when the clothes come off.
Now they’re both about to learn the biggest lesson of all: Don’t fall in love with your best friend.
Blindsided was my first read from Amy Daws. I can’t remember why I picked it up I think it was recommended to me through Kindle unlimited so I went for it. Not realising that there where loads of other books and series and that a lot of the secondary characters where from previous books. This didn’t really matter to this story but I’m a sticker for reading books in order even if there not technology in a series.
Mac glares at me while maintaining his smile. “Just last week, you had an entire conversation with your salad about how if you could take a pill that made the lettuce taste like crisps, the two of you could actually be mates.” “That was a conversation between me and the romaine,” I quip, hating the way he mimicked my Cornish accent. No matter how hard I try to ditch it, that West Country twang slips out. “And you shouldn’t have been ear-wigging.”
Freya and Mac meet through friends over a year ago and have become great friends. They eat meals together, they watch a LOT of Netflix together and over the year they have become fast friends.
The world can often feel like a one-size-fits-all place, but applying a few alterations can make life a perfect fit. That and Spanx. God bless the creator of Spanx.
With their friends up and coming wedding where Freya is maid of honor and Mac is best man, Freya is desperate to have a date…
“I love your freckles!” he barks, splaying one hand out on the counter and using his other hand to bop my nose. “They make me want to play connect the dots on your wee face.”
The growing attraction between the both of them had me sitting at the edge of my sit with a huge lump in my throat wanting to know more. The hilarious banter between the two had me in stitches. This was such a sweet, fun and entertaining read I would highly recommend it and I’m off to read more by Amy Daws.
