Pistol Whipped by Ashley Bostock ♥ Review, Book Blast & GIVEAWAY ♥ (Contemporary Erotic Romance)

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.


First of all, I loved the premise of this book: Two best friends begin to feel differently towards one another. Needless to say, the fact that these two have been so close for most of their lives made for some pretty interesting internal (and external) conflicts.

Nextly, HOT. I mean, my goodness! And it was endearing at times because Gabbie was battling some inner demons that prevented her from being intimate, and the way Logan handled it was wonderful.

I enjoyed the tone and the way this book was written. It was in more of an "everyday-this-is-how-real-people-speak" kind of style, as opposed to a 100%-grammatically-correct style. I could easily hear Gabbie saying things she did in the way she said them.

I was introduced to other characters from the series, and I must say that I CANNOT WAIT to read Brandi and Blaze's story (if they have one...if not, ASHLEY, THEY NEED ONE!!! You set it up beautifully!)

All in all, I really liked Ashley's writing style, and I would absolutely read more books by her!

***I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***

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.”

She loves reading, writing, and music and is always trying to find more time in the day to incorporate all three. Seeking an outlet and pursuing her life-long passion for writing, she began composing her first novel in late 2013.

She carries a Bachelor’s Degree in History with a concentration in Elementary Education from Metropolitan State College of Denver. While she loves children, she now fears teaching, which probably has something to do with being a stay-at-home mom.

  5. I like Tiago's question about what actors do you see playing Gabbie and Logan. Just from the excerpt and description of the story I can see Bradley Cooper or Charlie Hunnam playing in the role of Logan. As for Gabbie I could see Amanda Seyfried in the role.
