My best friend is married.
Everyone I know is married. It doesn’t bother me.
I like my life the way it is. Since I’m single though, when my best friend and her husband finally decide to go on their dream honeymoon, she asks me to watch their three-year-old son.
Of course I say yes.
What my best friend neglects to tell me is that I won’t be babysitting alone.
Feeling Max might be too much for me to handle, her husband asks his only single friend to help.
Nick Carrington and I have met a couple of dozen times. I’ve never really given him a second thought—other than to say he’s kind of a jerk. Out loud. So he can hear. Sure, he’s tall, dark, and handsome. And yes, he has the best ass I’ve ever seen, and I mean ever seen quite literally. You see he mooned me at last year’s Fourth of July barbecue because, like I said, he’s a jerk.
He always has to be the life of the party.
He’s also arrogant.
And a playboy.
I’d even go as far as to say he’s a manwhore.
Yet somehow before I know it, this manwhore and I are co-parenting. Living under the same roof. Eating meals together and yes, talking.
Don’t look at me like that—it’s not like I had a choice.
Even though I knew every minute would be hell, I had to say yes.
But after two weeks what I didn’t expect is that I’d been wrong about him.
That under his smart-ass exterior, he’s quite charming.
That his arrogance is actually confidence.
And that the sight of his naked body would do really bad things to me.
So yes, I’ve misjudged him. And yes, I like him. Really like him. Although there are times I still think he’s a jerk…I now think he’s a sexy jerk.
And I want more of him.
The question is—does he want more of me?

He was a jerk, the biggest jerk.
A self centered, manwhore who thought of no one but himself.
Or so she thought.
Nick Carrington, the best friend of her best friends husband. This inevitably made him part of her life, in a sense at least. If she wanted to be a part of Fiona's life then Nick would somehow be a part too.
Tess Winters had planned to stay at her best friends home and take care of her little boy doing a getaway her and her husband planned. But what she never expected was that Nick would also be helping out. She could barely stand him for five minutes how was she going to make it through a week?
Every comment was laced with sexual innuendos. The man was a hound.
Never had Tess thought that she'd find the man behind the facade so appealing. He wasn't the total jerk she thought he was, he was a sexy jerk.
They clicked, and the heat between the two was scorching. I loved their banter, it made me smile. She gave as good as she got and he loved the sassy attitude she threw his was at every turn.
I truly enjoyed the development of their story.
My only complaint was I felt as if the ending was rushed. I wanted more of the outcome, after certain events but they were skimmed over in a quick review at the end.
