Sloane Hoffman knew he'd made a mistake when he ran after his passionate encounter with Stacy Newman, but it was scary for a playboy to meet a woman who had him thinking of forever. Six months later his dad asks him to help test out some of the company's newest role-playing games with a partner. With Stacy as the other half of the testing team Sloane is sure they can have a week of fun without commitment creeping in; after all they both know the time limit of the experiment.
Stacy has worked for Naughty Games Company for years and has decided that in order to get anywhere she's going to have to go out on a limb. She's shocked when she learns that Sloane will be her partner in testing the games, but quickly agrees to a "strictly for the business” rule. But it's hard to keep hearts separated when bodies come together. Can these two get past each other's defenses and misunderstandings or are they just in it for the Sexy Games?
This is a really great short story. I loved the innuendo and the game ideas. It was well-written and fun to read. Ms. Ash is new to me as I've never read anything of her before, but I'll be looking for her books to give them a try.
