Finance whiz Emily Branson is afraid of relationships. But when she sees how happy love makes her younger brother, she wants to try dating again. However, there’s another hurdle. Although she wants sex, she hasn’t enjoyed it in the past, and she’s embarrassed by her horrible acne and birthmark.
Solution? Get her brother’s best friend to teach her how to have fun in the bedroom.
Construction supervisor Jay Cheng likes to go out and have a good time. He’s not interested in commitment. Emily’s idea sounds crazy, but he won’t turn down the first girl he ever wanted, as long as his best friend never finds out.
Overcoming Emily’s discomfort with revealing her skin and trusting someone proves harder than anticipated, though it ultimately leads to some very sexy role-playing. It feels like they’re becoming closer—and not just physically.
But neither of them planned for this to turn into anything more...

One month ago, Amy McNeil was dumped, and she never saw it coming. How could she have? Greg had said “I love you” for the first time only two days before. So when she runs into him at a coffee shop, she demands an explanation.
Greg Kim couldn’t imagine it working out with Amy. He sees her as the sweet girl he’d take home to meet his mother, rather than one who’d agree to the open relationship he craves. To shock her, he challenges her to come to a party at his friends’ townhome—a party unlike anything Amy’s ever been to before. Greg will sleep with other people in front of her…and punish her when she does the same.
But Amy surprises him. She wants to finally act out her secret fantasies. Will this one night lead to the untold pleasures she imagines? Can she show Greg that it’s possible for them to both have everything they desire?

Maya Gregory’s dating history is just depressing. Four years after seeing her ex-fiancé’s face on the front page of the paper, she’s finally ready to try again. Her first date? A former financial analyst who now makes pretentious art out of microwaves and kitchen waste. Ugh. Where are the normal guys?
Maya’s only ever been close to one guy who didn’t turn out to be a loser. Math teacher Liam Foster. Her friend. And for the past year… her friend with benefits.
Liam had a crush on Maya when they sat beside each other in calculus. But being the nerdy outcast in high school, he didn’t think he had a chance with her back then, and his feelings for her disappeared long ago. However, when she starts dating again, Liam is consumed with jealousy—and it’s not just because he’s worried about losing his regular sex partner.
Cynical and sarcastic, Maya is a lot different from the girl he once loved. But maybe he wants her for himself after all. If only he can convince the woman who’s ready to give up on love yet again that they can have more than friendship…
