Every girl in my sorority wants the smoking hot mechanic next door, myself included, but a man is the last thing I need in my life—especially a tattooed single dad with a reputation as a badass. A man like that draws attention, and a woman hiding out from an abusive ex needs to keep a low profile—but then my car breaks down and I have no way to pay.
I gave up raising hell the day I became a dad—there’s no greater rush than seeing my little girl’s smile. We keep to ourselves, until the sorority girl next door comes up short on her car repairs, and offers babysitting services in exchange for payment. Our agreement is hands off, business only, but being around her is a special kind of torture that quickly reminds me I’m still a man, and now, with more time on my hands, I’m finding it harder and harder to keep them off her.

Move in and help him take care of his daughter?
As crazy as that sounds, I agreed to the temporary arrangement—for the child’s sake.
Problem is, living with the guy I’ve crushed on since forever, is messing with my body as well as my brain.
And now, watching him grow as a man, seeing the bond between father and daughter build, I can’t help but want this family for myself.
But we’re just playing house, and Jonah isn’t interested in making this ready-made family the real deal…right?
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.
