Bear's Best Friend (Fixer Brothers Construction book 5) by Raleigh Reubins

Raleigh Reubins had me hooked at best friends to lovers with Bear's Best Friend... 

From the blurb:

He’s a ray of sunshine. I’m a loner lumberjack. We don’t make sense…
…But my straight best friend keeps ending up in my bed.

Sawyer Hendricks is the best friend I’ve ever had—the Goose to my Moose, and the shoulder I’ve cried on even though I’m not the crying type. The difference between us? Sawyer brightens any room in an instant, and I’m the gruff guy wearing flannel who’d rather be alone.

My first mistake was admitting to Sawyer that I couldn’t remember the last time I’d been kissed--because the punk leaned over and kissed me, right then and there.

…And then he ended up in my bed. Just friends, right?

Now I’ve gotten a taste, and he wants another taste of me, too. But no matter how hot it is when we’re together, Sawyer’s straight. This is innocent fun for him, and I’ve long since learned to shove my true feelings for him where the sun don’t shine. I’m no good at feelings, anyway.

He’s renovating the brewery where I work, and now we’re in closer contact than ever. My heart’s been shattered before, and there’s no chance I’ll let anything threaten the deepest friendship of my life.

But I’m only human. How can I resist when my best friend is begging for more?

Heather's Review:

Raleigh Reubins had me hooked at best friends to lovers with Bear's Best Friend...  super sweet, with a sexual awakening, a kiss that changes everything and a slow build as Sawyer protects himself and his heart in case Harlan is just experimenting...

Their relationship is addictive and I love how Sawyer starts coming into his own with his family and gaining confidence in himself as he and Harlan take their friendship way beyond benefits to a true connection...

I also love Harlan's journey and how he has faith in his feelings.

This was a great addition to the Fixer Brother's series and a truly fun besties to lovers read.  This book can be read standalone for the tropes, but is best enjoyed as part of the series.
