He wants a second chance with his best friend's sister. She wants him on his knees.

Nothing can stop a girl with a plan...
Tori Jarrett is rocking her life. Well, mostly. She has great friends, and she’s busy fixing up her house. The only thing missing is love. But Tori isn’t worried...an awful lot. Mr. Right will arrive when he’s meant to, and this time they’ll ride off into the sunset together. No repeats of four years ago when she gave her heart and virginity to Brett Evans hours before he skipped town.
Not that Tori is holding a grudge. In fact, she’s almost forgotten their disastrous one-night stand. Until Brett stands on her doorstep, looking to rent a room. Yi-yi, does he have to be as handsome and charming as always?
Of course, Brett regrets ever hurting Tori. It’s difficult to know what to do about a woman he once considered the cute kid sister of his best friend but now can’t deny is thoroughly, irresistibly sexy. But, seriously, he’s better off alone. After all, Tori is a childhood pal, a boundary he won’t cross again.
Pal? Tori can’t believe Brett is stuck in the dusty past! What she needs is help with her house renovations, not a history list. Pals or not, she intends to get Brett under the covers again where he will discover she’s all woman where he is concerned. Maybe then she can finally bury her dreams and fantasies about the man, and move on.
Bed him and forget him. Forever this time. Such a simple plan...

Cindy Procter-King earned a B.A. in English Lit. before unleashing herself on the unsuspecting workforce. She quickly realized her aversion to fluorescent lights and the numbers 9-2-5 wouldn’t earn her kudos from her various bosses.

Cindy is a Romance Writers of America® Golden Heart finalist and author of poignant contemporary romances and rollicking romantic comedies available at etailers around the world. Her mission in life is to see her surname spelled properly—with an E. That’s P-r-o-c-t-E-r. So take heed. Cindy lives in beautiful British Columbia with her family, a cat obsessed with dripping tap water, and Allie McBeagle.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
5 stars I received a free copy of Getting Over Brett by Cindy Procter-King and this review was given freely. Tori's brother's childhood best friend Brett is also Tori's first love. He comes back to Oregon for a job and tries to rebuild a relationship with Tori while Tori is rebuilding/remodeling her family home. This story contains realistic characters, sassy girlfriends, a smarmy dad, some neighborhood drama, a lot of dialogue punctuated by what the character is really thinking, a loving dog, and a couple who repress both their attraction and love for each other throughout most of the novel.
