Author: Ella Frank
A hot, sizzling start to an opposites attract romance.
Ryan has watched everyone around him fall in love. He’s so adorkably cute, so why can’t he find his dream man? When he’s rescued from potentially losing his wallet by a grumpy firefighter, Ryan can’t shake the man from his mind and when Jameson continues to cross his path Ryan chalks it up to fate.
Jameson is not cuddly, he’s not personable, he’s not looking for any kind of relationship, friendship or otherwise, but when GQ won’t leave his mind he knows he’s in serious trouble. When Jameson needs to find a new place to live, how does fate mess with him again, but by listing the very room that Ryan is needing to rent out. Could these two be destined to cross paths?
Opposites attract and yet as roommates these two are perfectly matched. Neat, tidy, quiet and super hot!! Okay, that isn’t really a roommate requirement, especially when they probably should keep their hands to each other if they want to make their roommate situation last, but when their chemistry is as off the charts like these two…yum! Their attraction and close quarters only heighten that chemistry.
Will these two burn like a fire and then sizzle out, or can they make what they’ve started work? It will take Ryan learning how to scale the incredibly high walls Jameson has erected.
A delicious beginning to this hot duet, with several cameos from some of Ryan’s closest friends and coworkers.
Kind, caring, and protective. Those are the three qualities I’m looking for when it comes to my dream man. In a city as big as Chicago, you wouldn’t think he would be that hard to find, right?
Sure, my boss found a super-sexy detective and my best friend fell madly in love with the most eligible bachelor around. But the only person I’ve met recently is a broody bad boy who saved me at a sketchy pub.
He’s grumpy, rude, and honestly, not that likeable at all. Hardly my “dream” guy.
So why can’t I stop thinking about him?
I don’t do friendships. I don’t do relationships either. The very last thing I’m looking for in life is to fall in love and live happily ever after.
So saving some rich guy from losing his wallet is the last thing I want to do on a Friday night. Especially when he looks like someone who just stepped off the cover of GQ.
Fate seems to have other ideas, though, and every time I turn around, he’s there.
A wicked heat simmers between us, threatening to ignite, and though I’ve been trained to put out the flames, I can’t help but think: What’s the worst that could happen if I let this desire burn out of control?
