A sexy category romance novella from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…
She’s the one fire he can’t put out…
Jamie Lansing has had it bad for firefighter Smith Grayson for as long as they’ve been friends. Yes, he’s ridiculously charming and she might stare a little too long at his abs, but his dirty-talking, rough-around-the-edges ways aren’t for her. Plus, she knows that as a serial dater, Smith isn’t the type to settle down. But then a terrible, fantastic, mind-blowing mistake leaves her body craving more than one night.
Smith Grayson has only ever had eyes for one woman in town–his best friend Jamie. But convincing her a relationship between them will work is next to impossible with her refusing to see beyond his past. But when she asks for a week of no-strings-attached sex to get him out of her system, Smith knows this is his one chance to prove he’s not just the man she needs in her bed, but the man she needs in her life.
NOTE: 10% of all release week sales will be donated by the author to the National Volunteer Firefighter Support Fund.

So not her type. She read all the time. Everything from poems to romance novels.
“And what is it that gets you most excited about the Spring Festival?
Is it, say, the scent of cotton candy in the air?” he asked in a mock
serious tone, as if cotton candy were a very important topic.
“Of course, seeing as I’m the keeper of that sweet treat,” she said,
since she’d be running the cotton candy stand this year with her
“I do love the taste of sweet things,” he mused, then inched closer to
her, meeting her gaze, speaking in a low and sexy tone, making it
clear he was enjoying the word play.
“You do?” she asked, as a spark zoomed through her.
“Some more than others,” he said, keeping his gaze locked on her as
the bartender set down their drinks. He didn’t stop looking at her as
he tossed some bills on the counter.“Like what?” she asked, unable to
resist the suggestive back-and-forth.
“The ones that are sinfully delicious,” he said, in a voice laden with
innuendo. “The kind of sweetness you almost need to repent for.”
Sinfully delicious. Those words thrummed through her, and she found
herself hoping she was one of those sweet things.
Snap out of it.
When he raised his beer in a toast, she tried to steer away from the
double entendres. She picked up her glass, clinked it against his, and
took a drink. Her throat was dry, and she desperately needed the
liquid. “To the festival,” she said.
“To the festival.”
“Tell me what else excites you,” he said, and it was clear he wasn’t
talking about the festival.
