Look, she started it.
She issued me a challenge I couldn’t back down from. Make her purr like no man has done before.
Fine, she’s my business partner’s daughter. All right, I’m also working in the same damn practice with her. Yes, she happens to be my ex-fling. But that was seven years ago, and it was barely a week-long thing.
Except, Sloane is still the one I can’t stop thinking of -- brilliant, sexy, captivating Sloane. Maybe a week of taking her to new heights will get her out of my head.
So what if we spend a few nights on the town too? So what if I romance her across Manhattan? It’s all in the name of scientific pursuit of more magnificent Os.
Until the rules change…


I meet Sloane’s gaze then go for it. Because this night has only one destination. “We should go to Tahiti.”
“Too long a flight?”
She lets go of my hand and holds up her thumb and forefinger. “Maybe a little. Not that I’m turning down a trip to Tahiti. Wait? Are you saying you want to take me to Tahiti? Because I can pack like that.”
Smiling, I slide my hand to her ass, squeezing. I whisper roughly in her ear, “I’m saying I’d like to escape with you. Like we’re getting away for the night. Let’s fuck away all this hot, wild desire.”
She exhales then goes quiet, perhaps lost in thought. “But I thought we were going to resist kissing.”
I brush the backs of my fingers along her jaw. “We already failed that test.”
She pouts. “I was supposed to be an un-vixen.”
“Didn’t work. You’re the opposite, and I want you so fucking much.” I press against her. “You have me so wound up. I’m pretty sure you’re wound up too.”
She pushes back. “You know I am. You know I want you too. That was never the issue.”
have to get closer to her. I need to have her. “Let’s give in. Just once.” I slide my fingers into her hair, she leans her head against my palm, and I continue making my case. “I can take you places. I can make you feel extraordinary, like I’ve always wanted to.”
She hums. “You’re making it hard to say no.”
“True. I’m very hard to resist.”
A smile spreads across her face. “You are, Malone. You’re terribly, impossibly hard to resist.” She nibbles on her bottom lip. “One night. Our secret. What happens in Tahiti stays in Tahiti.”
“Absolutely,” I say as my dick high-fives me.
“And where is this alternate universe?”
I curl my fingers around her hip bone. “My place isn’t far. There’s also a hotel down the block. Either way, I intend to strip you naked, get my lips all over you, and make you feel as fucking good as you looked when you were watching me sing.”
She shudders. “I looked good when I was watching you? How so?”
I run my thumb over her hip, rubbing in slow, sensual circles. “You’re so seductive. You looked so incredibly alluring. You looked exactly as you are—the most beautiful woman I’ve ever met.” My fingers stray to her belly, gliding down the fabric of her dress toward my final destination. “And you and I have unfinished business.”
She leans her head back, and the most delicious moan ever recorded escapes her lips. When she raises her face, she tap-dances her fingers down my chest then runs them over the silk of my tie. “Are you saying we’re going to finish the business tonight?”
“Yes, and then tomorrow...we can be friends again.” The thought pains me, but I know this is the only way to deal with our reality.
“Exactly,” she says, nodding her agreement. “We take a trip tonight. We get away to a remote island. And tomorrow we go back to the real world?” She’s seriously considering this. Hell, I’ve already considered it six ways to Sunday in the span of ten seconds, and I say it’s a brilliant plan.
“Let me take care of you tonight. Let me spend the night worshipping your body and driving you wild with pleasure.”
“You say these things...”
I grin. “And?”
“And you make it impossible to walk away.” She grabs my tie and tugs my face inches from hers. “But what do you think my voice says?”
I want her to say it. The permission must come from her, and I’m dying for it. “You tell me.”
She brings her mouth to my ear and whispers, hot and sexy, “It says take me to Tahiti. Fuck me hard. Fuck me good. Fuck me senseless.”
That’s the only voice I’m listening to tonight.





It’s a fun and flirty romance found amongst the pages of this contemporary tale of second chances as a sexy veterinarian finds himself once again in close quarters with the woman who’s been a constant temptation for the last seven years.  In a tale teeming with sexual tension, witty banter, and a few laughs along the way, readers will find themselves utterly entertained as this carefree romance is the perfect remedy to any bad day.

Dr. Malone Goodman is a sexy and charming veterinarian adored by the ladies and their pets alike.  He’s got a winning bedside manner along with a bedroom voice that all together makes him a drool-worthy hero.  His first interaction with Sloane Elizabeth was an unforgettable one years ago, but with discovering that she’s the daughter of the man who hired him stopped things before they barely begun.  He’s not forgotten her though as no woman could ever measure up to how perfect they were together.  She’s back in his life now and she feels just as forbidden as the tempting taste he gets of her has him wanting more as he finally stands up for what he wants for his future.  Malone’s an immensely appealing hero, flirty to all but with a kind heart that’s fully on display in his day job.  He’s confident too but not arrogant as he’s quick to laugh at his own foibles.  His singing is another area in which he shines and these scenes are full of sensuality as he embraces his talent as it was Sloane who initially pushed him to pursue it.  It’s a bond between them and I liked that being together made both of them better.

Sloane was in her early twenties when she met Malone, still trying to figure out what to do with herself.  Though their first meeting was an unforgettable one their connection ended before it should have out of fear over what her father would think.  She tried to move on from the near-perfect connection she had with Malone, never forgetting him as he inspired her career path, but it’s left her with one unsatisfying relationship after another.  Reconnecting with him feels right (and yet wrong) and has them giving into temptation in a week where reality is ignored.  When feelings become too intense to ignore though they’ll finally have to decide if they want to commit wholeheartedly or walk away once and for all.  Sloane’s a likable heroine with a kind heart and a loving relationship with her father that neither she nor Malone wants to mar which has them questioning every move they make.  It’s clear though how good these two are together in a relationship that made me smile as well as blush.  Once they decide what they want for their futures, readers will be left cheering their actions as seen in this book’s numerous more happy than the last.

This is a quick and virtually angst-free romance that kept me glued to the pages.  It’s a charming read too with crackling banter that often felt like foreplay, leading up to numerous scorching scenes that set my tablet on fire. This couple was likable all on their own, each with a good heart and a need to protect, but together they were a delightful pairing that jumped off the pages. Surrounding this entertaining main couple was an equally appealing cast of secondary characters.  These secondary characters were couples we’ve seen in previous books of Ms. Blakely and they were a good sounding board into fighting for your HEA.  There’s two other memorable characters whose story just started here too...Malone’s twin sister Truly and his best friend Jason.  These two were playful together with unrelenting flirtiness and sexual tension surrounding every scene they were in and I’m greatly anticipating their tale next.  Reader looking for the perfect beach read will get all that and more courtesy of this sweet and sexy second chance romance!

My rating for this book is an A-
