I'm detoxing my life. No drink, drugs or messing around with guys who use me. I came too close to the edge last year, and nearly lost everything. Now I live day to day, but I'm focused on the future. I don't need Dean, a bossy-but-sexy firefighter to take an interest in me. He saved me once before, and when he figures out where he knows me from, I guarantee he won't be able to get away from me fast enough.
One night turns into two, and I still want more. His take-command attitude in the bedroom is the hottest thing I've ever experienced, and every time he says "good girl" I want to wrap myself in the praise, even when he's got me doing the dirtiest things.
We're scorching between the sheets, but it's my heart that's going to get burned, and I don't know how I'll survive.

Real estate mogul Eli Ward hasn’t had the best of luck lately–someone keeps stealing projects out from under him. So, with his new project, he’s keeping a low profile. Plus, he’s anticipating a fight from the somewhat eclectic folks currently living in the building. What he wasn’t anticipating was that the fight would be led by Brooke Worthington, the woman who absolutely rocked his world one unforgettable night. She might be the only woman in the city who doesn’t know who he is, which is refreshing...and tempting.
Graphic designer and part-time bartender Brooke Worthington is not interested in following her family’s plan for her. But she is interested in sharing a drink...and more...with a sexy stranger in a suit when her shift ends. The last thing she expects is to run into him again a few days later at a neighborhood meeting. Eli is hot, really hot, but she can’t afford distractions now that she has to save her building from some greedy real estate billionaire. Only, staying away isn't as easy as she thought, especially when she learns exactly who Eli really is.
