Zoey Stranford might’ve had a crush on the sexy boy next door since middle school, but she’s a woman now, and that crush has turned into a full-blown case of lust. So why is it that at twenty-nine her libido decides to ramp into high gear, making her only focus the intensely sexy, scorching hot boy next door—who is definitely not a boy anymore? The problem is, Zoey and Kaleb have been best friends for as long as she can remember. Not to mention that Kaleb and his brothers are trying to buy Stranford land to build a new resort, and she’s more than a little uncertain about his intentions.
Kaleb Walker has had his eye on Zoey for close to twenty years, but never before has he considered taking their friendship to the next level, no matter how many fantasies he’s had about her over the years. Suddenly he is hell-bent on having her—in as many ways as possible. Kaleb finds himself in a precarious situation. His brothers have nominated him to pursue Zoey’s father about the land needed to get their new resort off the ground. When he learns Carl Stranford is on the brink of foreclosure and Zoey might lose her house and the land, Kaleb must convince her to put aside her pride and let him help her.
It doesn’t take long before the flames start burning bright and hot, and the two of them burn up the nights and the days as they explore each other’s forbidden fantasies. But can their friendship survive a business transaction or the new friends-with-benefits clause? Or will they realize that they’ve been overlooking something much deeper that’s been right in front of them all along?
