Riley tends to fall hard and fast for the guys she dates, and it never ends with the wedding bells she expects. Tired of the heartbreak and unsure if she even knows what love is, she swears off unreliable things like dating and trying to find that elusive happily-ever-after spark. Focusing on her art seems like the perfect distraction, except she’s missing the physical side of being half a couple. Fortunately, her best friend, Zane, is happy to model for her drawings and tie her up in the bedroom with no expectations.
Zane’s granddad raised him with the belief that people who bring joy to the world should be protected at all costs. For Zane, his best friend Riley is one of those people, and he definitely doesn’t mind when making her happy involves helping her pursue her creative dream and some sport sex with a hint of kink. They can have fun, and he can keep her from falling for the next idiot who comes along while she searches for her Prince Charming.
Regardless of her resolution, as things heat up between them, Riley finds herself falling again. She needs to decide if she’s in love with the idea of being in love, or if—despite Zane’s insistence that she deserves someone better—what she feels for him is the real thing. If she can’t learn to trust her heart and convince Zane he’s exactly what she needs, it will obliterate a lifelong friendship.

Riley tucked her hair behind her ear, her thumb still stroking the inside of his thigh. “Every guy I’ve ever met who insists he likes giving oral better than receiving only says that because he’s never gotten a good blow job. One good, skilled set of lips gets him off, and even though he may still sing the same tune, he’s never again quite as eager to give as receive.”
Fuck, what he’d give for a chance to prove her wrong. Or, hell, prove her right. Time to push the issue. “Tell me it’s not the same for you. Maybe you’ve just never had a guy who knew what he was doing…” Zane trailed off, half-expecting her to blow a fuse at the suggestion. When her brows rose instead, he kept talking. “Besides, I never blame the girl. It’s just harder to get me off orally.”
She let out an abbreviated laugh. “Bullshit. Again. I could so prove you wrong.”
Every inch of him roared in response. The thought of her lips wrapped around his cock was almost enough to make him come on the spot. “Too bad we’re not in a position to do that.”
Her lips twisted as she thought, and her gaze raked over him. “You look like you’re in the perfect position to me.”
