Publisher's Summary

Trapped and tempted, this battle of wills rages all night long.

Kady Dresco and Colton Brooks click on a level that defies logic. There are only two problems. One, he's her older brother's irritating best friend, and two, they're bidding on the same military security services contract.

When the competition heats up, Colton is torn between wanting to strangle Kady (and her annoying brilliance) and kissing her into submission. Which is a bad idea for a million reasons, because Kady's submission is exactly what he craves. Being trapped in a tiny motel room with the object of his darkest fantasies will require every ounce of his restraint.

Kady doesn't want his restraint, but Colton knows better. She deserves love, marriage, and a white picket fence - three things Colton can't give her. But her proximity and the memory of their steamy near-miss three years ago slowly destroys his resolve. And he's not sure how much longer he can keep his hands off - or his heart closed.

Great sexy short!

Hot, sweet, low angst, short little listen. Dual pov (although a single narrator) with some long term yearning and some intense sex. yum

Spoiler Free Review

What I enjoyed most about this contemporary romance novella:
Friends-turned-lovers / Nerdy heroine and hero / Easy-to-read / HEA

Dual format owned: Kindle e-book & Audible audiobook

Writing style: Dual POVs

Cover design: I like the red color scheme and the sexy but not super explicit design.

Ratings
Overall ★★★½ It was a well-written pinning for my older brother’s friend / pinning for my best friend’s younger sister contemporary romance novella. It had just the right amount of steam and story.

Performance ★★★★★ Narrator Carrie Piper was new to my ears, but I really like her acting, tone and pacing. I’d definitely listen to another novel narrated by her.

Story ★★★☆☆ Kady Dresco and Colton Brooks discovered they shared more than being nerds and the same career field. They both like their sex rough without diving into hardcore BDSM exactly. I think their love story worked for me as a non-BDSM trope fan because they grew up together before Colton joined the military.

My favorite scene was when they were just chilling and watching the movie Office Space, one of my favorite old movies. Narrator Carrie Piper mimicked the movie actor Gary Cole as boss Bill Lumbergh telling Peter he wanted him to come into work over the weekend perfectly, bravo!

Wets the appetite

I'm very interested in this series now. This was a great short story that has heat, great characters and background which gives depth and lead to where, why and how these two can make it. The narrator is good but I like a bit more definition between male and female.

pretty good!!

Any additional comments?

Kady had a thing for Colton all her life. The problem? He’s her older brother best friend and never saw in her nothing more than a little girl. Until one night changes it all and Colton leaves, not knowing how to deal with that, opening an awkwardness between them that they ignore by endlessly teasing each other. Now, three years later, they are fighting professionally for the same contract and for some ungodly reasons (fate, perhaps?) end up sharing the same hotel room.
And well, one night… one book will change it all. Yes, one book!!!
I loved the initial banter between those two. And despite hating the initial lack of communication between them, I loved how sweet it all became after. Colton was a sexy alpha-male and Kady was pretty good either.
