Evan Downey needs a new beginning. Since the death of his wife five years ago, the brilliant tattoo artist has shut himself away in a prison of grief that not even his work can break him out of-and what's worse, Evan knows his son Lyon is bearing the brunt of his seclusion. Moving back to the lake town of Evergreen Cove where he spent his childhood summers is his last chance for a fresh start.

Charlotte Harris knows she owes it to her best friend's memory to help Evan and his son find their way again, but she can't stop her traitorous heart from skipping a beat every time she looks into Evan's mesmerizing eyes. Charlotte is determined to stay strictly in the Friend Zone-until a mind-blowing night knocks that plan by the wayside. Now, if they're brave enough to let it, Charlotte and Evan might just find a love capable of healing their

My favorite “Friend Zone” movie is Just Friends with Ryan Reynolds and Amy Smart. Best line from that movie: “When a girl decides that you're her friend, you're no longer a dating option. You become this complete non-sexual entity in her eyes, like her brother. Or a lamp.”

I love this idea for a list. Especially since in my new release, Evan makes it his personal goal to push Charlie out of the friend zone. Here’s my advice on how to break out.

5: Call a spade a spade. Or a date a date. None of this “hanging out” business. Dates can be at a nice restaurant or at home in front of the television. But a date has the potential for a kiss goodnight.
4: Touch is important. Laying a palm on your friend’s leg, or slowly running a hand along his arm is a way to communicate that you like him more than just hanging out. If he high fives you, catch his hand and hold it for a few seconds longer than usual while gazing up at him.
3: Hint for a kiss. Charlie catches Evan eyeing her lips a few times in Bringing Home the Bad Boy, and she starts feeling all shades of excited and nervous. Because when you are looking at someone’s lips, it usually means you want to kiss them. So, ladies, look at his mouth, and when he looks at yours, lick your lips or gently bite your bottom lip.
2: Don’t let your friend have space. In Bringing Home the Bad Boy, Charlie’s best defense is AVOIDANCE, but Evan refuses to give her the space to run. Being the alpha that he is, he literally crowds her into their first kiss, palming her neck, splaying a hand across her back, and watching her mouth intently.
1: Just blurt it out. If you’ve dropped every hint, and your friend still doesn’t get it, just tell them point blank what you want. Be clear so that your friend doesn’t misread you. “I like you more than a friend and I think we should explore something that involves heavy petting and probably panting and definitely no clothing”ought to do it.
Have you ever had a crush on “just a friend”? How did it turn out?
