“F*ck your rules, sweetheart. I don’t need a manual to know how you like to be touched.”
Pam Diederman is in serious trouble. Her master’s thesis is past due, her anxiety is through the roof, and if she doesn’t get some rest, she’s heading for a breakdown. A few weeks on the beach with her best friend Lizzie is just what the doctor ordered—literally. The only problem? Their sinfully hot, totally unexpected housemate.
Dark and dangerous. Bad boy to the core. And Pam’s deepest, most closely-guarded secret: Lizzie’s older brother, Ash.
Ex-Army Ranger Asher Burke rocked a hard-on for the girl next door forever, but they said their goodbyes ten years ago, right after a summer of mind-blowing sex. Now he’s back in Cali, fixing up the family beach house for his old man and trying to figure out his next move. Getting distracted by the past? Not an option, no matter how good Pam looks in a bikini. His sister's best friend was off limits when they were younger, and he sure as hell can’t risk it now.
Yeah, tell that to his hard-on. Because that uptight, good-girl mouth of hers is about to get them both in hot water…
Ash was never good at rules, but he’s very good at Pam, and soon they’re up to their old tricks, sneaking around for another red-hot, wall-banging, toe-curling summer. But when secrets come to light and Ash puts his heart on the line, will Pam break her rules for a second chance at love?
