I’ve waited years for the perfect girl, yet she was right in front of me all along.
My best friend, Natalie, has been by my side through everything. Leaning on my shoulder, borrowing my sweatshirts…and making my pants too tight when she flashes me that sassy smile that drives me crazy.
But she has no idea about that last part. She doesn’t have a clue I’ve felt this way about her for years.
Until one night after too many cocktails, we fall into bed together.
I’m flirting with my forever…she just doesn’t know it yet.
Alice Clayton - Wallbanger
Caroline Reynolds has a fantastic new apartment in San Francisco, a KitchenAid mixer, and no O (and we’re not talking Oprah here, folks). She has a flourishing design career, an office overlooking the bay, a killer zucchini bread recipe, and no O. She has Clive (the best cat ever), great friends, a great rack, and no O. Adding insult to O-less, since her move, she has an oversexed neighbor with the loudest late-night wallbanging she’s ever heard. Each moan, spank, and--was that a meow?--punctuates the fact that not only is she losing sleep, she still has, yep, you guessed it, no O. Enter Simon Parker. (No, really, Simon, please enter.) When the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts her heard-but-never-seen neighbor. Their late-night hallway encounter has, well, mixed results. Ahem. With walls this thin, the tension’s gonna be thick... In her third novel, Alice Clayton returns to dish her trademark mix of silly and steamy. Banter, barbs, and strutting pussycats, plus the sexiest apple pie ever made, are dunked in a hot tub and set against the gorgeous San Francisco skyline in this hot and hilarious tale of exasperation at first sight.

I know he feels guilty about Danny’s death, about not going to Iraq, but I can’t keep living this double life.

But when he meets single mom, Kylie Sloan, he's enthralled by her, and begins to question his standard operating procedure. After all, there's no chase, no mystery when banging a woman in a nightclub bathroom. Kylie's depth and determination make the sloppy, drunken hookups that fill his weekends seem empty and shallow. She's the opposite of the desperate, clingy women he's used to. She doesn’t want or need anyone to take care of her and that only makes him want to care for her more. Kylie's trust in men has vanished. The last guy she was with played ding-dong-ditch-it with her uterus and left her with a baby to raise. Now her infant son is the only man she has time for, even if she misses sex and intimacy more than she'd ever admit. Opening her heart up to a younger man who's best known for no-strings-attached sex and his casual lifestyle is probably the worst idea she's ever had. But Pace wants to prove to her there are still a few good guys left, and watching the sweet way he interacts with her baby makes her want to try…but she can really trust that his days of hitting it and quitting it are in his past? _Filthy Beautiful Lust is the third book in the Filthy Beautiful Lies series, however it can be read as a standalone novel (no cliffhanger). To understand the full growth and development of the characters, it is recommended that you begin with book 1, Filthy Beautiful Lies._

While you're too disciplined to act on it, I'm not. And the night you stepped into my limo, all bets were off.

Kendall Ryan - Vierzehn Tage voller Verlangen
Liebe sexy Praktikantin, ich weiß, dass es dir nicht sonderlich viel bedeutet, dass ich der Geschäftsführer dieses Unternehmens und du nur eine Praktikantin bist. Ich weiß ebenfalls, dass du dich weder von meiner Macht noch von meinem Reichtum beeindrucken lässt, und das ist gut so. Du glaubst, mich zu kennen, nur weil du seit zwei Wochen eng mit mir zusammenarbeitest, doch du weißt gar nichts über mich. Nicht wirklich. Du weißt nicht, dass ich ein alleinerziehender Vater eines jungen Zwillingspärchens bin oder dass diese beiden kleinen Mädchen mir mehr bedeuten als diese gesamte Hotelkette. Ich habe kein Interesse daran, irgendetwas Tiefgründiges und Bedeutungsvolles zu beginnen, doch was mich fasziniert, ist die Art und Weise, wie dein Körper auf meinen reagiert, sobald wir uns im gleichen Raum aufhalten. Du vermutest wohl, dass die Konzentration in meinem Gesicht arbeitsbedingt ist, obwohl ich in Wirklichkeit darüber nachdenke, was ich mehr möchte – dich gegen die Wand gelehnt zu nehmen oder dich über meinen Schreibtisch zu beugen. Während du viel zu diszipliniert bist, um entsprechend zu handeln, bin ich es nicht. Und seitdem du an jenem Abend in meine Limousine eingestiegen bist, ist alles möglich.
