When Ari Mitchell has an unexpected one-night stand with her best friend's future brother-in-law, she fully intends to move on from it without any dramas. But Dylan Summers is someone she can't stop thinking about— and wanting again. Problem is, he doesn't do relationships.
Dylan Summers only allows himself one-night stands for reasons only he and his two best friends know about. But after his night with Ari Mitchell, he admits to himself he has to be with her again, even if it means making things very complicated.
Their mutual attraction is simply too strong to ignore. But how can Ari find a future with a man who avoids commitment? And how can Dylan open up to the woman who can heal his heart, when he fears her true motives for being with him?

About the Author
Ever since I was a young teenager, I have loved reading romance novels. My auntie used to send me boxes of her books and I would devour them one after another. Every so often, I would read a mystery or a suspense or a paranormal novel as I love those genres too. But romance is still my favourite. :)
For many years, I wrote technical and non-fiction materials for professional use and had only dreamt about writing a novel. Then, one day, after a period of binge-reading sexy romances, I decided to sit in front of my computer and start writing my first fiction book.
The result? My debut novel, "Will To Love", the first in the hot and sexy Lifestyle by Design series.
After that, I knew that I would love to tell more beautiful love stories through my books.
I live in Sydney, Australia with my amazing husband who lovingly cheers me on in my journey as a novelist.

Ari isn't looking for more than a one night stand with Dylan. She knows he is a player but he means well. However one taste isn't enough for either one. Plus they seem to run into each other often as Ari and Dylan have the same friends. Ari has some responsibilities that she keeps to her self. Dylan has some trust issues that keep him from getting to close to anyone. He has been burned in the past and has no plans to get suckered again. Both will have to learn to trust each other and realize they have more between them than one night stands. I really enjoyed the first book in this series but I think I liked this one more. You still get the same steamy scenes you come to enjoy in the first one but you have two people who can't keep their hands off each other but are afraid of more. I really like Ari. She is very talented and a proud person. She doesn't want to ask for help even when she needs it. Dylan is very charming but at times you may think he is a jerk. I like how much he comes around in this book. There is so much that comes between these two mainly each other. I enjoyed watching them as they try to hide how they feel. You also see characters from the first book and I loved that. If you love great characters and a sexy story give this one a try.
