It took only one day at college for life to throw a wrench in Alyssa’s plans. When she walks into the quirky used bookstore just off campus she expects to find a few old paperbacks, not to lose her head over the store’s sexy owner—and Kyle is way out of her league, the kind of sex-on-a-stick bad boy who would never give a girl like her a second thought. Or would he? There’s nothing Alyssa loves more than a good challenge, and this one promises to be a lot more exciting than running for class president. She just wants to make Kyle notice her, that’s all—to see her as a woman. How hard can that be? She’ll stop before she gets in over her head. But she can’t get those smoldering brown eyes and sinful smile out of her mind, and she keeps imagining his full, soft lips hovering a breath away from her own.
Would kissing him really be so dangerous?
Kyle doesn’t do sweet and innocent. He certainly doesn’t mess with the kind of college girls who will still be getting carded when they’re forty. But one look at Alyssa’s smile is enough to shake him, and he can’t seem to make himself push her away. It’s a mistake and he knows it—he’s too old for her, she’s not remotely his type, and he’s not into relationships—but she’s under his skin like no other woman has ever managed before. He knows he can’t have her, but maybe he can have just a little taste? He can always stop, any time he wants to, before he gets in too deep with her. What can it hurt? Just one kiss, and then he can stop. Can’t he?
Would kissing her really be so dangerous?

Olivia Blake is the romance alter-ego of erotica author Kelli Wolfe. I love reading romances—contemporary, paranormal, Regency, you name it—so I decided to give writing them a whirl and discovered that I really enjoyed it.
My first novel, With One Word, was released in November 2015. After completing my eight-part billionaire romance series, Winter’s Heat, I’ve moved on to a contemporary Gothic romance called Dark Bargains. The story is about the son of a casino magnate who falls in love with his brother’s mistress. It has a mansion on a lake, a dead wife, a ghost, and of course lots of secrets.
