USA Today bestselling author Mira Lyn Kelly cranks up the heat for two lifelong friends whose most secret longings come true in every delectable way.

Vivacious and successful, Ava Meyers is living her dream life, except for one thing: Ever since childhood, she’s been in love with her best friend . . . and she’s never admitted it. Back then, Sam Farrow was a damaged young man with a tough past. Now he’s supremely confident, super-sexy, and totally untouchable—until the night when Sam pretends to be Ava’s boyfriend to save her from some unwanted attention. In a moment of weakness, Ava finds out that a long friendship is no match for blistering sexual chemistry.

After years of denying his own feelings, Sam finds that one amazing night with Ava isn’t enough to chase away all the pent-up fantasies. So he proposes they spend a few weeks driving each other wild, exhausting their every desire, and then return to their perfect platonic relationship like nothing ever happened. But Sam’s plan has one fatal flaw: the part where they give each other up. Because the more they let go of their inhibitions, the more they’re tempted to never go back.


What a Fun, Sexy, Emotional Romance from Mira Lyn Kelly...A Definite Must Read of 2015.

This was my first in the Dare to Love series (and yes...I MUST go back and read TRUTH OR DARE), and I am so so glad that I am a huge Friends to Lovers romance fans or else I might have missed out on the awesomeness that is TOUCH & GO.

Sam and Ava, seriously...the sizzling chemistry that lingers on ever page was so enticing, I couldn't put this book down.  Sam was ...well...Just scroll down and have a peak...can we say OMG yum...if that was my best friend, I would SOOOO be having more naked slumber parties!  If was sweet, and sexy, and funny and I absolutely loved the amazing banter between Ava and Sam, or the foreplay if you want to be truthful....Some of the scenes (sneaking in the bedroom on Game Night...hysterical...and the packages) had me cracking up!  TOUCH & GO is like the best chick-flick you'd want to watch!

The heat is top notch from the start, the emotion is heart achingly beautiful and Mira writes a story line that will have you laughing and tearing up all at the same time!

So excited to see what is next for this series!

Hey Everyone! Thanks so much for having me over and helping me celebrate today’s release of TOUCH AND GO—YAY!! Okay, so it seems we’re looking for a bit of info about Sam Farrow, the awesomely hot Friends-to-Lovers hero from my second Dare to Love novel :-) Let’s see what I’ve got…


Age: 29

Occupation: Wicker Park’s top contractor- Owner 

Physical Description: 
Tall and leanly built with calloused, work-rough hands. Tousled mess of sandy blond hair and a just-back-from-the-beach natural complexion. Most often found wearing a beat pair of faded jeans the same color as his eyes and a plain long-sleeve T-shirt that tells the story of a career rooted in manual labor without bragging about it. 

Likes (3): 
Hard earned success, hanging out with his best friends, and Ava (Most of all, Ava).

Dislikes (3): 
Bullies, Liars, and being vulnerable in any way.

Relationship Status: 
Serial one-nighters

Typical Friday Night: 
Dinner and checking out a new band with his friends, brief hook-up with someone who doesn’t look like Ava, shower, return to Ava’s apartment for a late night movie before heading back to his place to sleep alone. 

Drink of Choice: 
Beer (preferably Goose Island) 

Favorite Food: 
Pub grub and Lou Malnati’s pizza. 

Favorite Song: 
Whatever Ava’s signing off key that day.

Choice of Transportation: 
Cabs or the “L” at night, his truck for work.

Boxers or Briefs: 

Best Memory to Date: 
It’s twenty years old and the one he’ll never forget. Seven year old Ava, stopping him on the street as he fled from his abusive, alcoholic father. In typical bossy-pants fashion, she decided he was going to be her new friend…and even back then, Ava got what she wanted. 

Words to live by: 

Looking for a smidge more? How about a quick look into Sam’s head?

Jesus, his switch had flipped but good. Because this was Ava. And nothing in his admittedly vast and varied past had ever come close to burning him up the way she was.
How the hell was it even possible they could be like this together and still have managed to make it twenty years without giving in once or twice before?
A dark corner of his barely functioning rational brain knew.
Because it was Ava.
Because he’d never been willing to risk the most important person in his life for some casual screw.
But that wasn’t what was happening here.
They weren’t risking anything. This was just the culmination of a series of events that would never occur again. Stalker Steven needing a blunt intervention. A chemical reaction neither of them had expected when they came into contact. An unanswered question between two friends—two adults—who knew exactly what they were getting into, and who were solid enough in their relationship for a single night between them to be just that. A single night, granting a depth of intimacy that hadn’t been there before. One that would make them stronger.
Another breathless cry and Ava bit at his bottom lip, sucked it into her mouth as she rode his hand.
In the hallway. Of the apartment building her brother owned. Because he couldn’t stop.

Seriously, I loved writing Sam & Ava’s story, and hope you’ll give these two a read :-)
