My life is a hot mess.

Single, working, and raising two daughters, it’s a miracle I get us up, dressed, and fed every morning. Forget about dating—nobody’s got time for that. Even if love hadn’t left me jaded, I’m not settling for anything less than perfect this time around.

Lucky for me, the perfect man just happens to work in my office. But there’s just one small problem: he’s my boss, and is totally off limits. But hey, if it’s meant to be, it’ll find a way, right?

Then a night out with friends turns into a night in with the walking-talking bad boy cliche of a bartender. It’s just one night. No harm, no foul, right? Except when the hot bartender turns out to be my boss’s trouble-making brother, who wants more than just one night with me. The more I resist the spark between us, the more I find myself wanting him too. Which puts me in the middle of what could be the biggest sibling rivalry of the century.

Life is messy.

And love?

Well, love is even messier.

She hesitates, and my heart stops beating. I’m no stranger to a one-night stand—though it’s been a while—but something about this woman has my stomach in knots over her hesitation. If she says no, then I’ll be faced with going home alone, even if someone else comes with me.

Sharing my bed with someone, even just for the night, does little to fill the void. Physically, I might not be alone for those short hours, but I’m still just as lonely as I was before, though it pains me to admit that. I’ve had my fun chasing women. I’ve broken hearts and had mine broken a time or two, though it was never anything I couldn’t recover from. I got a reality check a few months ago, and that I haven’t recovered from. I don’t know if I ever will. I do my damnedest not to think about it, but I can’t keep the darkness out forever. When it creeps in uninvited, it evokes feelings inside me I want to torch and bury deep inside my soul.

It evokes feelings that make me long for something more.
Lexi pushes her hair back and her mouth opens. Her eyes meet mine and it’s like I can feel her heart beating right up my chest.




She wets her lips and inhales, moving closer without meaning to. “Yes,” she whispers, her own words sending a shiver down her spine. Long lashes come together as she blinks. “Yes, I do want to get out of here.”

Her eyes are wide, and she’s clutching her purse tightly in one hand. The other rests on the bar, fingers just a hair from mine. Maybe she’s never done this before, which explains the color on her cheeks. If it’s an experience she’s looking for, I know I can deliver.
