If you're looking for a quick, hot read with a sexy firefighter/construction worker - this one will do the trick!
Jamie and Smith have been friends for years. And while Jamie is a sweet bookworm (I LOVED that about her, of course!), Smith is the complete opposite and known as the guy who changes girlfriends on a regular basis. She values their friendship and tries to hide her attraction to him because she doesn't want to get involved with someone she thinks is a commitment-phobe and who would definitely break her heart.
But then one night they give in to their attraction for each other and now that she's had a piece, she wants the whole pie. But only for a week - because she's still afraid of getting too close and having her heart broken. And Smith wants more than just a no strings week with her - he wants her heart and is determined to prove to her that he's not the same guy she's pegged him for. Ultimately they have to decide if what they have is worth pursing long term or will it end up breaking both of their hearts.
Short and steamy - this book was just what I needed to get out of the book funk I was in last week. I really enjoyed their banter and of course all of the sexy times were fantastic. It didn't feel rushed because they were already friends and the author made me feel like their relationship was well established before they first got 'together'. These two sizzle off the pages and it made for a perfect quick read.
