Doing a favor for a friend has never been so hot.
When an injury sidelined my career as a pro cricketer, my American mate Chelsea convinced me to take a coaching position at a girls' school. I never thought I'd love that job, but I do. So yeah, I owe Chelsea a lot. But we're still just friends.
Lately, though, we've suffered from the same problem. Our jobs keep us too busy for dating, but a one-nighter with a stranger doesn't appeal to either of us.
Then Chelsea asks me to pose for a "beefcake" calendar of former cricketers. That means shirtless men preening for the camera. It's all for charity, so I can't say no. But when our photo session turns red hot, I get a brilliant idea.
Let's do each other a favor, now and then.
Yes, all right. By "favor" I mean a quick shag. We have rules that will make sure we never stray over the line. No kissing. No holding hands. No beds, no hotels, just the occasional inappropriate place where we can satisfy each other's needs.
Two adults can handle this sort of arrangement. What could possibly go wrong?
One Hot Favor is the ninth book in the bestselling Hot Brits series of romantic comedies. Coming soon in audio narrated by Shane East & Vanessa Edwin.
