“We both know that night was hot as hell…”
But can she handle the heat…knowing that it can’t last?
Chicago-based food critic Parker Jones is in serious trouble. She’s reviewing one of Las Vegas’s hottest barbeque joints—and the hottest thing in the place is the restaurant’s mouthwatering sex-on-a-stick owner. Her only choice? To hide why she’s really there. Not exactly her finest moment. But NFL-quarterback-turned-restaurateur Hugh Matteson might prove too delicious to resist…
Only, Parker certainly didn’t anticipate the explosive sexual chemistry between them. It’s intense. Sizzling. And satisfying the way that food can never be. So naturally, Parker does what any rational, commitment-phobic grown woman does. She bails.
Parker should have known better. Hugh’s entire professional career has been about not giving up—even after his last serious relationship imploded publicly. And he’s definitely not about to let Parker disappear if he has anything to say about it.
Because this thing between them is hotter than a Carolina Reaper. His quick grin, that lightning bolt of lust whenever he touches her—oh, Parker could fall for this guy, and hard. But when you’re cooking with a fire this hot, it’s only a matter of time before someone gets burned…
