Seven minutes in heaven never felt so good…

Valerie Barkin and Alec Rogers survived bullies, awful parents, and seriously shitty social standing the only way best friends can—together. But with the unexpected sexual tension suddenly flaring between them, surviving their ten-year high school reunion might be a different story…

Val hasn’t changed. She still feels like the stringy-haired band geek the popular kids teased, but Alec has definitely changed. He’s now the front man for the Grammy-winning rock band Chronic Disharmony, with the sexual reputation to match. And he’s more than willing to help Val rock the reunion.

And then it happens—a drunken game of Seven Minutes in Heaven—and their fourteen-years-long foreplay comes crashing to the forefront…changing everything.

Seven minutes turns into a weekend of mind-blowing, no-strings-attached sex. But these best friends won't be able to leave their hearts out of it forever, not when the most meaningful benefit could change their relationship for good.

Kassiah: Okay, you’re going to have to suspend belief before reading this story. Val and Alec were BFFs in high school. Ten years later, they’ve stayed in touch and have thought about more. Val is a concert flutist and Alec’s a rockstar now. And here’s where you have to make the leap. Despite hating high school and being bullied, they agree to attend their 10 year reunion and of course, you know what happens.

Except you don’t. Because they play Seven Minutes in Heaven and make out in a closet. Look, if they were with a bunch of their real friends and decided to play, it might be funny or more realistic. But this wasn’t. I didn’t love either of these characters. I just didn’t get it.

Anyway, aside from that, there were some seriously hot scenes here, no doubt about that. But the lack of connection and the unrealistic storyline left a bad taste in my mouth.
