Harper Flynn is tired. Tired of taking care of her alcoholic mom. Tired of online dating and the disastrous dates. Mostly, she's tired of her recent dry spell. After a night of taking care of herself, her best friend and roommate not only makes her aware he heard her, but also offers to help her out. Never looking at Milo as more than a friend, his suggestion opens her eyes to the possibilities, and she goes for it. Except...he had been kidding.
Milo Amato has had his heart broken one too many times and now refuses to do no strings attached relationships. Ever. When he suggests it to his best friend, he never dreamed she would take it seriously. He was joking around with her. Or was he? Now that she's kissed him, and feelings he thought he squashed in high school resurface, he battles between what his heart and body want and what they need.
With each scorching kiss and tender touch, deep-rooted feelings unravel, making their friends with benefits agreement complicated, and threatens their long-term friendship that has kept them both from falling apart.
