Katherine Gates has been in love with Cash Greer since the moment he saved her life from a runaway goat. According to Cash, she’s the little sister he never had, the greatest roommate in the world and his favorite coworker. They’re friends—best friends.
In the dark days of her youth, it was her friendships that kept her alive and made life in a junkyard worth living. So she’s learned to shove her feelings for Cash down deep, even if that means ignoring eyes that shine brighter than the Montana summer sun and the smile that illuminates the snowiest winter day.
Except with every passing year, the denial takes its toll on her wounded heart until one day Katherine decides to take an impulsive road trip to the Oregon coast. Alone. That is, until Cash cons his way into the passenger seat.
The farther they travel, the harder it is to pretend. And when she confesses her feelings, she learns that Cash has some secrets of his own. Secrets that will either bond them together.
Or rip them apart.
“Why did you turn the air on?” she asked, looking above us to the open air.
“I’m hot.” Desperate. What would it take for her to put on a goddamn sweater? “Are you wearing sunscreen?”
“Uh, no.” She gave me a sideways glance. “Why?”
“You’re going to get burned.” Get the sweater, Kat. You know you want to.
“I’ll be fine. At the next gas station, I’ll grab a bottle for us.”
Us. Why did that word sound so serious? It wasn’t the intimate kind of us. There was no us. Not in the couple sense of the word. Did I want there to be an us?
That lightning-fast internal response nearly had me slamming on the brakes, turning this car around and going back to Montana, where the world was normal.
Kat was my friend. My best friend. Roommate. Coworker. Pseudo sibling. There were days when I’d trade Easton for her permanently. Okay, any day. There were plenty of ways to label our relationship and us was not one.
I could not—would not—tear down the boundaries that nearly a decade and firm family reminders had put in place.
OMG! I can’t get enough of this series. Completely hooked and in love with all the characters so far. This one is on Katherine and Cash, the eldest of the Greer boys. Katherine has been working for the Greer’s family business for over a decade and she was accepted as one of the owns. Katherine has been secretly in love with Cash since day one, but she did not want to jeopardize the friendship they have she is technically an employee and he is her boss 😊 Cash has no shortage of women, but he can’t seem to pull his head out of his ar*se to realize the woman he meant to be with is right in front of him. I adore Katherine – she is loyal, hardworking, beautiful inside and out. There is a reason the whole Greer’s clan adopted her. Poor Cash hiding under the best friend / sister blanket. Deep down he is head over heels. It just takes him a long time to finally give in and make a move. All it took was a road trip and all hell broke loose. The author took us on quite a roller coaster ride of emotions. One minute I was rooting for them, the next I want to give up but for the most part I just want the HEA so bad I almost flip to the last chapter 😊 Get ready because … HOLY ANGSTS!!! It’s all worth it though I promise!
Quarter Miles was such a sexy, swoony, and emotional friends-to-lovers romance. This whole series has been FANTASTIC. I love the concept of a group of kids who worked hard and rise above the life they were dealt with. I love how they never forgot each other and where they came from. Incredibly well-written. Highly recommended.
