Ever since high school, Elijah and Kamnan have always had each other’s backs. So when Kam suffers a freak accident and is laid up for a few weeks, it’s only natural that Elijah steps in to help him through his recuperation.

But they soon discover that the occasional meet-up to throw back a few drinks is very different from being cooped up together in Kam’s condo day in and day out. In fact, the more time they spend together, the more Elijah sees Kam in a completely new light—one that surprises and scares him. After a tender moment turns into a passionate exchange, Kam first chalks it up to the building tension of the routine they’ve fallen into. But everything feels more intimate, and time apart feels empty.

As Kam regains his independence, the real world begins to encroach on the sanctuary they’ve built for themselves. Elijah’s still getting over a bad breakup, and Kam has his own plate full of responsibilities—his Spin Cycle business and joint custody of his five-year-old daughter. A relationship is the last thing either of them is prepared for, but will trying anyway end in heartbreak, or will resisting be the wedge that tears their friendship apart?

Reclaim by Christina Lee was exactly what I’ve come to expect from her. She always delivers fleshed out characters whose love stories grow naturally.

What I loved:

-Best friends to lovers
-Slow burn
-Interracial romance
-Awesome supporting characters

Only niggle:

Though I love a good slow burn- this one was a tad too slow. I would’ve liked a little more steam or just more time together with them as a couple.

Overall though a lovely read that had me hooked from the get-go. Verra nice addition to the Under My Skin Series! 4 Stars
