Big brother's best friend. Hot and sexy alpha male. Built, Smart. And he set her world on fire three years ago. And then pfffftt. Thrown together by a storm, fate steps in and makes it impossible for Colton to avoid Kady. When he discovers what had him backing off three years ago isn't necessarily an issue he is stunned and then the game is on. But it's not a game he's playing. In fact he's playing for keeps.
Loved the back story complete with nicknames and former pranks that carried over into adult hood. These two people really know each other, but everyone has a few things that aren't for public consumption. Enter the elephant in the room that is Colton's sexual preference, and Kady's complementary sexual kink of her own. It took a while to get where they could discuss this as it's not everyday conversation. It was all brought about by a missed step and a dumped computer bag, but who is complaining? Very steamy (although I would have preferred more in that department) and a little message that if all is not as it appears to put yourself out there if you want to get what you really desire.
Trapped and tempted, this battle of wills rages all night long…
Kady Dresco and Colton Brooks click on a level that defies logic. There are only two problems. One, he’s her older brother’s irritating best friend, and two, they're bidding on the same military security services contract.
When the competition heats up, Colton is torn between wanting to strangle Kady (and her annoying brilliance) and kissing her into submission. Which is a bad idea for a million reasons, because Kady’s submission is exactly what he craves. Being trapped in a tiny motel room with the object of his darkest fantasies will require every ounce of his restraint.
Kady doesn’t want his restraint, but Colton knows better. She deserves love, marriage, and a white picket fence—three things Colton can’t give her. But her proximity and the memory of their steamy near-miss three years ago slowly destroys his resolve. And he’s not sure how much longer he can keep his hands off…or his heart closed.
