of love, but not for Sophie. One week before Valentine’s Day, she learns her
boyfriend of two years has been cheating on her with one of his dental hygienists. 

As much as she wants

his new squeeze at a huge Valentine’s Day bash that has fast become the social
event of the season. No way is she going alone. What she needs is a beautiful
hunk of arm candy… STAT.

help Sophie prove she’s over her scumbag ex. 

 
What starts as an act
between Sophie and Tanner quickly swells into more. It doesn’t take long before
Sophie finds herself wanting to ride more than just waves with the toned and
tanned hottie. But when passion crashes over the pair, Sophie fears she’s
putting her friendship with Ellie at risk. 

Can Tanner convince
her to give their love a chance? Or will the bonds of friendship repel Cupid’s
arrow?

Excerpt

Tanner slowly lets me go. “So, tell me about this party.
What all do you need me to do?”
My cheeks burn. There are things I’d love for him to do, but
I’m not about to mention them. Closing my eyes, I sigh and open them back up.
“Okay, it’s a Valentine’s Day ball, put together by a girl I knew in college.
Everyone I graduated with will be there. It’s like one of the biggest events of
the year.”
Tanner smirks. “Your ex will be there, right?”
I nod. “Yes. Along with the woman he cheated on me with. I’m
sure everyone there knows what happened. I can’t not go.”
“Do you still have feelings for your him?” Tanner asks,
furrowing his brows.
“No,” I gasp, knowing it’s the God honest truth. I stare
right into Tanner’s eyes, hoping he can see it as well. “I don’t love him
anymore. Here recently, I keep thinking I never did. We didn’t have that
connection.”
Tanner moves closer, his eyes searching mine. “What exactly
do you want from me? Do you want it to look like we’re together?”
My stomach flutters and the nerves make me shiver. “Would
that be okay with you?”
His eyes focus on my lips for a few seconds before meeting
my gaze again. “If you want this to be believable, we might have to practice. I
don’t want to be at the party trying to kiss you, only to have you recoil or
look surprised.”
Everything inside of me trembles. Just the sound of his
voice and hearing those words turn me on. “That’s not going to be a problem,” I
say, whispering the words.
Tanner smiles. “You sure? I’m right here if you want to
practice.”
Dammit to hell, I want to kiss him more than anything, but
that’s the sexual tension talking. I can’t be acting rash like that, not with
Ellie’s brother. Then again, he has a point. We can’t go into the party
pretending to be together and not looking like we’re together.
Taking a deep breath, I get to my feet. By the mischievous
grin on Tanner’s face, it’s obvious he can tell I’m contemplating it. “Okay,” I
give in, “maybe we should practice a couple of things, but not today. I think
we should get to know each other a little better first. We have a week before
the party.”
He agrees with a nod and stands. “Sounds good to me. I’ll
pick you up tomorrow morning. We’ll spend the day together.”
I like the sound of that, maybe too much. “See you
tomorrow,” I say. I walk him to the door and he opens it. He glances down at my
lips again and I really just want to say fuck it and kiss him just to see what
it’s like, but I totally chicken out.
Something tells me he’s not afraid though. Tanner starts out
the door and looks at me over his shoulder. “Sweet dreams tonight, Soph. I’m
sure I will.”
Mouth gaping, I watch him get in a black Jeep and drive
away. Sweet dreams aren’t exactly what will be happening in my sleep. All
that’s roaming through my mind is naughty. Groaning, I shut the door and lean
against it.
“What the hell have I gotten myself in to?” I can still
smell Tanner’s cologne and it’s intoxicating. “I’m going to be making out with
my best friend’s brother. If that doesn’t spell disaster, I don’t know what
does,” I mutter out loud. What’s bad is that I know I’m going to like it.
