Tired of big city life, software developer Cole Sampson moves to a small Canadian town to get some peace and quiet. Unfortunately, his keep-the-hell-away-from-me vibes don’t work on his gorgeous new neighbor.

Waitress Rachel Malone is intrigued by the hot curmudgeon living next door and his very sexy scowl. Sure, he keeps shutting down her every advance, but before long, she finally catches his interest.

A red-hot, sex-only relationship is what they want. But Cole can’t get over the fact he likes cuddling, and Rachel won’t let herself fall in love, not when she’s finally decided to follow her dreams and move to the city. Still, it’s just sex. Isn’t it?



“Cold?” he asked.

“A little. But it’s only another block.”

He had nothing to offer her anyway—he was only wearing a T-shirt. So all he’d be able to do was wrap his arm around her and that was…

Truly frightening.

Cole was not the sort of guy who put his arm around a woman or held her hand. He couldn’t believe the idea had even occurred to him.

He pushed that thought aside. “Where do you work?”

She’d asked him about his job the other day but hadn’t offered anything about herself. He wanted to have some idea of what she did. Add to the picture Rick had painted of her.

“In Ridgewood,” she said. “At AJ’s Diner.”

He could think of other questions to ask. Are you a cook? A waitress? How long have you been there? Do you like it? But he didn’t bother.

When they reached the driveway to their house, she winked at him.

“Come with me.” She wrapped one hand around his wrist and led him to her door.

Excitement pumped through his veins. Before he could form a coherent thought, her lips met his. She pushed him against the door, one hand gripping his shoulder. Her mouth was warm and needy; she kissed him like she couldn’t get enough. Like he was a cold glass of water or lemonade on a hot day, exactly what she needed.

Cole responded. Of course he did. He wrapped his arms around her and moved his lips against hers, wanting to swallow up her little sighs. Wanting to devour her. There was one form of human interaction he liked, and this was it.

His brain emptied. All he could focus on was the sweet pressure of her body against his.

He slid one hand down to her ass and pressed her closer. His dick rested between her thighs, and she rubbed herself against him as she nibbled her way down his throat.

God, yes, that was good.

If she were undressed right now, he knew he’d feel her moisture on his skin. Knew he’d slip easily inside her, and she would feel amazing.
