She wanted a one-night stand...and then he moved in next door.
Paige Bennett is more than content with her life and what she does—and does not—have in it. She’s got a supportive family, a great apartment, and the best friend a girl could ask for; so what if her relationships expire faster than a carton of milk? After a disastrous detour courtesy of poor judgment in the boyfriend department, her plan is back on track and her dream job is finally within her grasp. Nothing can make her lose focus now. Well, nothing except the one-night stand she had with her best friend’s surrogate brother. The one-night stand she can’t stop thinking about.
Adam Reid has always been reliable...the responsible son, the loyal friend, the steady boyfriend. Two years ago, he graduated Magna Cum Laude and is well on his way to making a name for himself at an accounting firm in Denver—a far cry from working as a helper in the Mom and Pop store his parents own in Michigan. But when said store starts failing, he’s the only one who can step in and help. So reliable Adam does what he always does, and he comes to the rescue.
Paige thought Adam was a safe bet because he lives halfway across the country. But then suddenly he’s moving back to their town, and then into her apartment building, and soon he’s worming his way right into her life. If she’s not careful, he might sneak his way into her heart, too...
Full length contemporary romance featuring a one-night stand turned to more between a strong-willed, smart-lipped heroine and the hot as sin, alpha hero she can’t get enough of.
She rolls her eyes. “Oh, Jesus, her we go. . .”
“What’s that supposed to mean?”
“It means I have two older brothers, so I’m well versed in the Man Hurt.”
“What the fuck is the ‘Man Hurt’?”
Gesturing to me, she makes a disgusted sound in her throat. “This. You. All of it.” Pushing to stand, she shakes her head as she looks down at me, hands on her hips. “You’re a disgrace right now. It’s hot yoga, not climbing Mount freakin’ Everest. Stop being such a testicle and stand up.”
“Stop being a–what the hell are you talking about?”
Crossing her arms, she looks down at me. “It’s me waving my feminist flag. I’m tired of inaccurate portrayals society feels are acceptable.”
“Wait. . .is this your way of calling me a pussy?”
“No, this is my way of calling you a testicle. Pussies can withstand a lot more than your wimpy balls. How did that become a saying, anyway? It’s not even a little bit accurate.”
I snort and slowly peel myself off the floor. “Must’ve been started by a man.”
“That’s what I’m saying.” She appraises me as I stand up, wincing as I do so. “You okay to walk home? You’re looking a little flushed. . .” She’s fucking gleeful. I’m going to be hearing about this for weeks.
“Careful, cuddle butt, or I’ll show you what I wanted to do instead of yoga tonight and prove just how okay I am when we get home.”

But now, every time she turns around, Cade is there, ready to push her, smile at her, distract her from her plans. Winter knows she can’t afford to open up–especially to a man she’s terrified to actually want…
