Book Description:

She’d known him for forever… Gabriella Crawford has been best friends with Logan since the 2nd grade, but that’s all they’d ever been…friends. Suddenly after 20 years, Gabbie starts to notice Logan in a different light. But sex has never been something Gabbie thought was great and it’s certainly not something worth risking a friendship over. Or is it?

He’d never really seen her until now… Logan Reeves should not be looking at his best friend’s breasts. Not even when he sees her modeling lingerie. But try as he might to stay in the ‘friend zone’ Logan can’t stop fantasizing about Gabbie. And when a business trip forces them to sleep in the same bed, all bets are off. Especially once Logan finds out Gabbie needs to be shown how good sex can be…

But is it too late?

Incredible sex might not be enough to keep these two together. Not when old secrets from the past and new career opportunities threaten to rip Logan and Gabbie apart forever.

Book Excerpt:

He stretched, folding his arms underneath his head, “I don’t know what to do about this, Gabriella. I’m leaving Colorado.”

“I know.”

“We are really good friends.”

“I know.”

“There is nothing I want more right now than to touch you.”


“Does that mean you don’t want me to touch you?”

“Touch me how?”

Logan removed his hands from behind his head and turned to face her on the bed.

“Look at me,” he demanded.

Gabriella turned to face him. In the dark, he could barely make out her face with only a small fraction of it illuminated by the alarm clock.
“How would you like me to touch you?”

“I’m nervous, I don’t know. You could come closer though.”

My Book Review:

Pistol Whipped is a wonderful friends to lovers erotic romance story that has a great mixture of sweetness and sexiness that will easily keep the readers turning the pages.

Set in Windsor, Colorado, the reader follows childhood best friends Gabriella Crawford and Logan Reeves as their friendship unexpectedly blossoms into a passionate romantic relationship. Their longtime friendship takes a surprising turn during a business trip when Gabbie and Logan are forced to share the same bed. Suddenly seeing each other in a different light, an undeniable attraction is sparked between them, but with passion comes angst, past secrets, and career opportunities ... can their friendship turn into a love relationship, or will it tear them apart?

Author Ashley Bostock weaves a delightful erotic romance story that easily draws the reader into Gabbie and Logan's story. I loved how the author takes Gabbie and Logan's lifelong friendship and unexpectedly develops it into a passionate romance intertwined with internal conflicts and challenges that keeps the reader engaged and wondering if their new found passion and love for each other is worth risking their friendship for, and will it be strong enough to survive.

I loved the complexity of the characters, their witty banter, their sizzling chemistry, and the passionate love scenes that was not overly explicit. The author weaves a fun storyline that flows smoothly as Gabbie and Logan's story unfolds, it kept me easily engaged and turning the pages, eager to see how their relationship would evolve and turn out. I couldn't help but cheer Gabbie and Logan on as their romantic relationship blossomed, this sigh worthy story left a satisfied smile on my face.

While Pistol Whipped is the third book in the Girls with Guns series, it can be read as a stand alone story.
