Nothing was off limits. Now he’s back, and these best friends have to figure out where they stand.
Riley falls hard and fast for the guys she dates, and it never ends with the wedding bells she expects. Tired of the heartbreak and unsure she even knows what love is, she swears off unreliable things like dating and trying to find that elusive happily-ever-after spark.
Which is great, except she misses the physical part of being half a couple. Fortunately, now her best friend, Zane, is back from his military deployment, he offers to tie her up in the bedroom with no expectations.
Zane’s holding something back, and Riley sees how much the secret haunts him. If she can’t help him overcome his demons, their friendship, their no-strings playtime, and his sanity may not survive.
Enjoy a brief excerpt:
He should move. Put some distance between them. Her heat seeped into all his senses, pushing past frustration, and demons, and awkwardness, and driving straight to his dick. Fuck. Riley had always been touchy-feely, but this pushed buttons he never realized he had.
In a single motion, he twisted from her touch, spun, and grabbed her wrists before she could pull away. She sucked in a deep breath, and her eyes locked on his—wide, and shocking blue as she stared back. When she licked her bottom lip, any words he had evaporated, lost in the desire to dip in and taste that sharp cherry.
“What’s wrong?” Though her question was soft, it stood out among all the background noise. Distinct and tempting.
The few faint snatches of reason left in his head pointed out he didn’t want to go down this road with Riley. She deserved better than a hard-on fueled fuck-fest in the back of his truck. She deserved better than him.
He dragged the reminder to the front of his thoughts, and forced his voice to remain firm. “I know we said the other day that what happened while I was gone is done and over. The past is in the past, sex ruins friendships, all that. So this is fair warning. You’re entirely too tempting to ignore when you do things like press your entire body against me.”
That should have been that. He expected her to pull away, maybe refuse to look him in the eye, and then they’d find a new comfortable middle ground.
Instead, she pressed closer and shifted her weight, rubbing her entire frame against him. “You say that like it’s a bad thing.”
