He was her brother’s best friend. Now, he’s hers.
Whipping her life into shape started when Erin McKenna exorcized her lazy ex-boyfriend from her life. Next up? Joining weekly bootcamps with her new trainer–and old friend–Luke Abrams. Dubbed “Brother Luke” when he was her late brother’s college roommate, he’s there for her again–spotting her at the gym and in life. Nevermind that the feelings she has are getting less sisterly by the sit-up.?
Luke promised his dying best friend that he would always watch out for Erin. Looking out for and lusting after haven’t been mutually exclusive. Still, hands-off and stay true is the plan until Erin is suddenly single, and he can no longer ignore the crush evolving into something more.
But once they finally acknowledge the romantic elephant in the room, will Luke’s “big brother” ways keep Erin at a distance?
An excerpt from Friends with a Tryst
“Come on, Erin.” Luke swung left and right hooks at my shoulders like a boxer in training. “It’ll be fun. Spectacular food. Dancing. You love dancing.”
True. I did. Maybe I could go shopping and find something decent to wear.
He could sense my capitulation and punched my arm once more. “Get back on the horse.”
“You want to wingman me into a New Year’s hookup?”
“No.” His reply flew at me fast like jab, but he dropped his fists. “I want to take you out and help you have fun.”
“I can’t believe you don’t have a date yet.”
“Well, I don’t.”
“I will–if you say yes.”
I rolled my eyes. “You and me isn’t a date.”
Luke dropped back against the counter and covered his mouth with his hands. The intensity of his stare took the oxygen out of the room. “Why not?”
My mouth gaped. No sound came out.
“We’re both single,” he said.
His voice was cautious and still. “I love being your friend, but don’t you ever think…sometimes Erin, I…”
Luke moved toward me. His fingers trailed down my cheek. He was so close, I tipped my head back to see him.
His mouth came down on my mine fast, then time slowed like cold honey. Everything froze. My breath. My brain. My heart.
He slipped his tongue between my lips and began undoing my arguments.
