He’s her first one-night stand—and her new boss.
It was only supposed to be a little white lie. When Emmaline Greene pretends to be Sarah, the confident, sexy woman she wishes she could be, she figures no harm, no foul. Her one-night stand will never find out. Wrong. The gorgeous guy she slept with isn’t just amazing in bed…he’s also her new boss.
Parker Wentworth has a lot to prove. He’s just been appointed CEO of his family’s company and is tasked with repairing its scandalous reputation. He can’t afford any distractions or complications. Too bad the attractive blonde he takes to bed turns out to be both. So why can’t he forget the incredible night they spent together and move on?
And why does he have this need to know the real Emmaline?
“Do you have a sweet tooth?” she asked, her heels clicking against the pavement.
“Depends on my mood.” It also depended on what else he’d eaten that day. Parker wasn’t the type of guy to indulge without first knowing how it would affect him on a macro nutrient level—but that sounded a little too Type-A to say aloud. “I’m partial to the occasional piece of chocolate cake.”
“I make this chocolate cake with caramel buttercream frosting between the layers. My sister calls it the better-than-sex cake.” She snapped her mouth shut for a moment, and a delicate pink flush fanned out across her cheeks. “Well, it’s pretty good, anyway…if you like that kind of thing.”
“Better than sex?” He chuckled. “That’d have to be some damn good cake.”
“I guess it depends on the kind of sex you compare it to,” she said, the flush deepening to an attractive shade of bright pink. “What I mean is, not all sex is like chocolate cake. Sometimes it’s more like…”
“Pizza?” he offered.
“I was going to say kale.” She wrinkled her nose. “I know it’s good for me on some level, but it’s just kind of unappealing. And weird.”
“Right.” He held back a laugh.
“I’m not saying you’ll be the kale kind of sex. I know you definitely won’t be. I can tell that already…” She sucked on her lower lip and sighed. “Can we just forget I said anything?”
“Oh no, you don’t get out of it that easily.” He shook his head. “What type of sex do you think I’ll be?”
“Better than cake.” Her lower lip glistened, tempting as ripe fruit. “Better than champagne and macarons and filet mignon.”
“That’s some pedestal you’ve put me on.”
He resisted the urge to toss their dessert onto the ground and take her up against the wall. A restless itch developed in his palms, and it would only be sated when he grabbed fistfuls of her hair and her ass. He wanted to taste her. He wanted to run his lips down the length of her neck and scrape his teeth along her collarbone. Pressure built behind the fly of his pants—he was harder than concrete. He needed to have her.
“You can handle it,” she said with a wink.
Her eyes flickered like blue fire. “Absolutely.”
