Talia never imagined that at almost forty years old, she'd be newly single again. Not to mention picking up a sexy young man at a Pittsburgh bar. What she thought was a one-night stand, turned into night after night of the best sex she'd ever had. Even the news that he was a teammate of her brother couldn't extinguish the desire she had for Harrison. Somehow, he had made himself a permanent fixture in her bed and was slowly moving in on her heart. He fawned over her like no man ever had before, and she was loving the attention, but she wasn't ready to give her heart away so easily. Not after what she just went through.
Harrison vowed off relationships. He was a self-proclaimed lifelong bachelor. Talia was simply supposed to be a notch in his bedpost, a hook-up. But he was drawn to this woman with such an animal attraction. Typically, he never bedded the same woman twice, yet he couldn't get enough of Talia.
Talia wasn't looking for a new relationship. Even after being estranged from her husband for two years, filing those final papers felt so…well, final.
Closing that period of her life was scary, but it was time to put on her big-girl pants and figure out the next chapter. Trouble was, falling in love again was not part of that plan.
