~ Synopsis ~
Sometimes you can’t change—and sometimes you just don’t want to. Discover Ben’s side of the story in this fourth novel by the beloved, top-selling indie author of Ten Tiny Breaths,One Tiny Lie, and Four Seconds to Lose.
Purple-haired, sharp-tongued Reese MacKay knows all about making the wrong choice; she’s made plenty of them in her twenty-odd-years. So when her impulsive, short-lived marriage ends in heartbreak, she decides it’s time for a change. She moves to Miami with the intention of hitting reset on her irresponsible life, and she does quite well…aside from an epically humiliating one-night stand in Cancun with a hot blond bouncer named Ben. Thank God she can get on a plane and leave that mistake behind her.
Football scholarship and frat parties with hot chicks? Part of charmer Ben Morris’s plan. Blown knee that kills any hope of a professional football career? So not part of the plan. Luckily Ben has brains to go with his knockout looks and magnetism. After three long years of balancing law school with his job as a bouncer at Penny’s Palace, he’s ready to lead a more mature life—until his first day of work, when he finds himself in the office of that crazy, hot chick he met in Cancun. The one he hasn’t stopped thinking about.
If Ben truly were a smart guy, he’d stay clear of Reese. She’s the boss’s stepdaughter and it’s been made very clear that office romances are grounds for dismissal. Plus, rumor has it she’s trouble. The only problem is, he likes trouble, especially when it’s so good-looking…

Ben Morris is currently a bouncer in a strip club, former football hopeful until a blown knee ruins his chances for anything professional. Celebrating graduating law school in Cancun. He is strangely drawn to the hot girl with purple hair. It's his last night and last fling.

What are the chances these two would cross paths again? Ben is friend's with Jack's son Mason and has just started a new career with Jack's law firm. The same law firm Reese is a paralegal for.
Neither of Reese or Ben are interested in a committed relationship and office policy state "no dating" but friends with benefits is surely a possibility!
Jared comes back into the picture and let me tell you this kind is a real piece of crap. He want Reese back but after spending time with Ben and his family Reese is ready for something better. Between Jared and silicone enhanced strippers will these two ever see that they are perfect for each other?
Funny, witty, sarcastic and wonderful. This is a great read!

And Don’t forget to Preorder…
