New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors Heidi McLaughlin and L.P. Dover come together for a sexy new series that delivers romance for every season!

February is the month of love, but not for Sophie. One week before Valentineโ€™s Day, she learns her boyfriend of two years has been cheating on her with one of his dental hygienists.

As much as she wants to erase any trace of him from her life, she has no choice but to face him and his new squeeze at a huge Valentineโ€™s Day bash that has fast become the social event of the season. No way is she going alone. What she needs is a beautiful hunk of arm candy… STAT.

Sophieโ€™s best friend, Ellie, proposes the perfect solution to her dilemma. Her brother Tanner, theย smokinโ€™ hot surfer, just got back into town and is more than happy to help Sophie prove sheโ€™s over her scumbag ex.

What starts as an act between Sophie and Tanner quickly swells into more. It doesnโ€™t take long before Sophie finds herself wanting to ride more than just waves with the toned and tanned hottie. But when passion crashes over the pair, Sophie fears sheโ€™s putting her friendship with Ellie at risk.

Can Tanner convince her to give their love a chance? Or will the bonds of friendship repel Cupidโ€™s arrow?

Excerpt

Tanner slowly lets me go. โ€œSo, tell me about this party. What all do you need me to do?โ€
My cheeks burn. There are things Iโ€™d love for him to do, but Iโ€™m not about to mention them. Closing my eyes, I sigh and open them back up. โ€œOkay, itโ€™s a Valentineโ€™s Day ball, put together by a girl I knew in college. Everyone I graduated with will be there. Itโ€™s like one of the biggest events of the year.โ€
Tanner smirks. โ€œYour ex will be there, right?โ€
I nod. โ€œYes. Along with the woman he cheated on me with. Iโ€™m sure everyone there knows what happened. I canโ€™t not go.โ€
โ€œDo you still have feelings for your him?โ€ Tanner asks, furrowing his brows.
โ€œNo,โ€ I gasp, knowing itโ€™s the God honest truth. I stare right into Tannerโ€™s eyes, hoping he can see it as well. โ€œI donโ€™t love him anymore. Here recently, I keep thinking I never did. We didnโ€™t have that connection.โ€
Tanner moves closer, his eyes searching mine. โ€œWhat exactly do you want from me? Do you want it to look like weโ€™re together?โ€
My stomach flutters and the nerves make me shiver. โ€œWould that be okay with you?โ€
His eyes focus on my lips for a few seconds before meeting my gaze again. โ€œIf you want this to be believable, we might have to practice. I donโ€™t want to be at the party trying to kiss you, only to have you recoil or look surprised.โ€
Everything inside of me trembles. Just the sound of his voice and hearing those words turn me on. โ€œThatโ€™s not going to be a problem,โ€ I say, whispering the words.
Tanner smiles. โ€œYou sure? Iโ€™m right here if you want to practice.โ€
Dammit to hell, I want to kiss him more than anything, but thatโ€™s the sexual tension talking. I canโ€™t be acting rash like that, not with Ellieโ€™s brother. Then again, he has a point. We canโ€™t go into the party pretending to be together and not looking like weโ€™re together.
Taking a deep breath, I get to my feet. By the mischievous grin on Tannerโ€™s face, itโ€™s obvious he can tell Iโ€™m contemplating it. โ€œOkay,โ€ I give in, โ€œmaybe we should practice a couple of things, but not today. I think we should get to know each other a little better first. We have a week before the party.โ€
He agrees with a nod and stands. โ€œSounds good to me. Iโ€™ll pick you up tomorrow morning. Weโ€™ll spend the day together.โ€
I like the sound of that, maybe too much. โ€œSee you tomorrow,โ€ I say. I walk him to the door and he opens it. He glances down at my lips again and I really just want to say fuck it and kiss him just to see what itโ€™s like, but I totally chicken out.
Something tells me heโ€™s not afraid though. Tanner starts out the door and looks at me over his shoulder. โ€œSweet dreams tonight, Soph. Iโ€™m sure I will.โ€
Mouth gaping, I watch him get in a black Jeep and drive away. Sweet dreams arenโ€™t exactly what will be happening in my sleep. All thatโ€™s roaming through my mind is naughty. Groaning, I shut the door and lean against it.
โ€œWhat the hell have I gotten myself in to?โ€ I can still smell Tannerโ€™s cologne and itโ€™s intoxicating. โ€œIโ€™m going to be making out with my best friendโ€™s brother. If that doesnโ€™t spell disaster, I donโ€™t know what does,โ€ I mutter out loud. Whatโ€™s bad is that I know Iโ€™m going to like it.
