He was off-limits. Forbidden. I wasn’t supposed to fall in love with him…
Kyler was my boyfriend’s best friend. I never looked at him as anything more than a friend too, but that all changed when Beau deceived me.
One unexpected night, one moment of truth, and that imaginary line between friendship and lovers was crossed.
Secrets were shared. Desires fulfilled. There’s no going back now.
Our lives were changed forever…
Kyler is a romance that asks the questions, what if I’d asked her first? It’s a taboo subject, one that both men and women have hard and fast rules on. Breaking this rule can ruin friendships, relationships, lives.
What do you do when the girl who puts the fire in your veins belongs to someone else? Not just someone else, but your best friend? Because that’s what happens to Kyler. He watches his best friend Beau get the girl he wanted, Ashlynn, sitting on the sidelines and watching with an ache in his heart. But good guy that he is, Kyler never even considers doing anything inappropriate. Would never take his best friend’s girl.
Until said friend screws up ROYALLY!!!
What I liked about this story was the real life issues it deals with. People do fall in love with people society tells them they shouldn’t and all of us have to deal with it. For me, I was pretty much Team Kyler all the way, because of course Beau is written as kind of a jerk. I wish the author would have just made them incompatible because, let’s be honest, it’s easy to leave a jerk for any reason.
While Kyler and Ashlynn are good together, my only real complaint was that this all consuming love, this connection between them…well I never really felt it. But as usual, C.A. Harms has done a damn good job.

Zoe – “I absolutely adore this author and her style of writing and her book and I would recommend this book to anyone who love an epic love between two very beautiful souls.”
The sound of an approaching car gained my attention, and I got up and moved forward with purpose. Ashlynn’s car slowed to a stop just beside my bike and I barely waited for her car door to open before I moved toward her.
“What are you—”
I didn’t give her the opportunity to finish before I gripped the back of her neck and pressed her body against the side of her car. I used my own frame to hold her in place, and just before I kissed her, I saw her eyes widen in surprise.
A moan escaped her and I found it drove me. I knew she felt something.
I was so lost in our kiss, the way her hands circled my waist as she held me tighter that I didn’t get the opportunity to see it coming.
Something impacted the side of my head and I stumbled sideways, bracing myself on the side of Ashlynn’s car.
I faintly heard my name as I shook my head to clear the haze.
“You couldn’t fucking wait to swoop in and play hero, could you?” I looked up to see Beau standing between me and Ashlynn, seething with anger. “You were always trying to play the martyr when it came to me and Ashlynn. Looking for every chance you could take to jump in and be the good guy.”
“Well, someone had to be the good guy.” I stood tall and stepped toward him, closing the distance between us. “Because we all know you don’t have the ability to be the good guy. Too busy focused on every other girl besides the one who should have truly mattered.”
My words only seemed to infuriate him further, but at this point I no longer cared. It was out, he’d seen me kissing her. So even if she didn’t want this to go any further than it had, the damage was already done.
Beau gripped my shirt and I didn’t even flinch. Instead I chuckled.
“You wanna hit me?”
“Yeah,” he sneered.
