In New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby’s brand new series, five best friends open a hot new restaurant, but one of them gets much more than she bargained for when a sexy former rock star walks through the doors—and into her heart.
Seduction is quickly becoming the hottest new restaurant in Portland, and Addison Wade is proud to claim 1/5 of the credit. She’s determined to make it a success and can’t think of a better way to bring in new customers than live music. But when former rock star Jake Keller swaggers through the doors to apply for the weekend gig, she knows she’s in trouble. Addie instantly recognizes him—his posters were plastered all over her bedroom walls in high school—he’s all bad boy...exactly her type and exactly what she doesn’t need.
Jake Keller walked away from the limelight five years ago and yearns to return to what’s always driven him: the music. If he gets to work for a smart-mouthed, funny-as-hell bombshell, all the better. But talking Addie into giving him the job is far easier than persuading her that he wants more than a romp in her bed. Just when she begins to drop her walls, Jake’s past finally catches up with him.
Will Addie be torn apart once again or will Jake be able to convince her to drown out her doubts and listen to her heart?
“Invite me in.”
“Excuse me?” She crosses her arms, facing off with me in the middle of her garage. And now I can’t stand it anymore.
I step forward and gently tuck the hair behind her ear, then drag my fingertip down her neck to her bare shoulder.
“You have sexy shoulders.”
“I can’t have you here.”
My gaze finds her ice-blue one. “Do you have a curfew?”
She doesn’t smile. “I think I’m going to fall apart, and I can’t have you see that.”
“I don’t want you to see me fall apart.”
“Okay.” I sigh. “But I need to make sure you get inside okay, and I need to get you settled.”
