Paige Bennett is more than content with her life and what she does—and does not—have in it. She’s got a supportive family, a great apartment, and the best friend a girl could ask for; so what if her relationships expire faster than a carton of milk? After a disastrous detour courtesy of poor judgment in the boyfriend department, her plan is back on track and her dream job is finally within her grasp. Nothing can make her lose focus now. Well, nothing except the one-night stand she had with her best friend’s surrogate brother. The one-night stand she can’t stop thinking about.
Adam Reid has always been reliable...the responsible son, the loyal friend, the steady boyfriend. Two years ago, he graduated Magna Cum Laude and is well on his way to making a name for himself at an accounting firm in Denver—a far cry from working as a helper in the Mom and Pop store his parents own in Michigan. But when said store starts failing, he’s the only one who can step in and help. So reliable Adam does what he always does, and he comes to the rescue.
Paige thought Adam was a safe bet because he lives halfway across the country. But then suddenly he’s moving back to their town, and then into her apartment building, and soon he’s worming his way right into her life. If she’s not careful, he might sneak his way into her heart, too...

It’s a damn miracle I got to this place, another published novel under my belt, and I have a horde of people to thank for it.
As always, to Christina, my Plot Whisperer Extraordinaire, for everything you say, everything you don’t say, every answer to my frantic babbling, every encouragement to my freak-outs, and every time you are there, pom-poms in your hands and smile on your face, to help me however I need it. Thank you could never be enough.
To Jeanette Grey for reading an early copy of this, even when you didn’t have time, even when you were on deadline, and giving your always valuable, always honest, always helpful feedback. I love you like whoa.
To Jamie J, who jumped at the chance to read early and give me a reader’s perspective of the book, even if your feedback was, “I love everything! I’m sorry!” Love you.
