About the book:

Kelsie Reed is over bad luck and bad men. Newly dumped, she’s now the pathetically single maid of honor in her sister’s wedding—and her ex is the best man. But then a plumbing meltdown in her apartment sends her sexy neighbor running to her rescue. He’s got “serial dater” written all over him, which is unfortunate because the man is hot.

Sawyer Chase loves women, but settling down? He’ll leave that to his brothers, thank you very much. But when Kelsie confesses she’s a dating disaster and is about to become the laughing stock of her family wedding, Sawyer takes control. He’s got one week to teach her how to land the man of her dreams, and he’ll do it on her terms: no touching, no kissing, and definitely nothing more.

But some rules need to be broken, especially when, for once, there’s something on the line worth fighting for…

Excerpt

“I thought you were spotting me,” Kelsie said softly.

Sawyer looked from the television and took in every gorgeous inch of her. “I was.”

“If you want out of our deal—”

He stood and pushed the door shut. No need for the whole place to hear this. “Dammit, Kelsie, I don’t want out of our deal.”

Her brow furrowed. “Then why did you leave me?”

“Because this is about you meeting someone else, and that’s not going to happen with me staring at your ass.”

“Has that been my problem all these months?” Her arms flailed, and he had a flashback to the night they met. “The reason I haven’t been able to meet anyone? Not so much my shit cooking or my territorial dog, but you staring at my ass?”

“You know what I mean.”

“No, I don’t.”

God, this woman. She couldn’t let it drop, and yet she didn’t understand why he didn’t want a full-time commitment to listening to this kind of crap? “You want to know what I don’t understand?” he asked. “I don’t understand why you care. You tell me not to touch you, then you give me hell when I try to get some distance. What exactly do you want here, Kelsie?”

A long moment passed without either of them breathing a word. Fine. He put his hand on the doorknob, only to hear her soft voice behind him.

“You were trying to get away from me?”

“Yeah,” he said without looking.

“Why?” She sounded so damned small. And hurt. And she had no right to that because these were her rules, and he was doing his damnedest not to break every one of them, but his thumb flicked the lock anyway. He stared at the knob for the longest time, because he knew that would be his undoing. The sight of her, gorgeous. Wounded. Skin glowing from her workout. Eyes dark because he’d hurt her. He could already see her, and it was too much.

Something touched his arm. Her hand.

He turned. Slowly. All the measured control in the world, but it wasn’t enough. Genuine questions darkened her eyes, and he had but one answer. “Because I can’t stop wanting this.”

He closed his mouth on hers, foregoing the polite nudge for permission in favor of a devastating kiss. All of that sweet, polite shit from the couple days prior was obliterated by an urgency that demanded he possess her, and she responded like she’d been waiting for it. Wanting it.

In a blink, he had her hoisted against the wall, her legs wrapped around him, her breasts pressed tight against his chest. He held her ass and ground against her while she whimpered his name and clutched his hair. The wall got old fast… He wanted his hands free to touch every piece of her, so he moved her, with extraordinarily bad intent, to the sofa and went down after her.
