Skylar Redmond’s Sky Bar is regularly wall-to-wall hot soldiers. Yet she is alone—and getting tired of it. Forget about finding a man who’ll rock her world in the bedroom. She’ll settle for a guy who’s stable, kind and compassionate.
Too bad that guy still sees her as the pigtailed girl from their youth, not the strong woman she is today. But maybe, with a little help, that’ll change.
As an ex-military field ambulance technician, Matt James excels at performing under pressure. Pretending to be interested in Skylar to help her capture the attention of his best friend? Piece of cake—because he won’t be faking it. He’s been in love with her since their school yard days, but never pushed it. She deserves someone who can offer her more.
A touch leads to a kiss, and a kiss to a night that throws a kink—or three—into Sky’s plan. Leaving her wondering if she’s going for the wrong man…and letting the right one slip through her fingers.
Warning: The book contains a girl with her eyes on the wrong prize, and a half-cocked plan—but definitely not a half-cocked hero.

When I learn he blames himself for the accident, I know I must tell him the truth.
But will knowing the real reason behind the crash give him the freedom to forgive himself and move on.
Or will it destroy everything he’s believed in, including me?
For Jamie’s sake, it’s a risk I have to take.
How can I say no?
Luke just dumped his conniving fiancé and needs a shoulder to cry on.
I’ll always be there for him.
Problem is, I want him. I’ve always wanted him.
Then I see the king-sized bed.
And Luke starts pulling out all the plays.
His kisses are far more real than the ones I’ve imagined.
And the more we pretend, the more real it feels.
But come the end of the week, will our make-believe honeymoon be the end of a lifelong friendship?
Or the beginning of something much more?
I guess it’s time to find out.
