She nods against my chest and mumbles something I can’t
understand since her face is smashed to my coat. I lean back,
brushing hair off her face.
“What was that?”
Her lips pull to one side, and then she nibbles on her bottom lip. “I
asked if you wanted to come in.”
Fucking hell. She’s killing me. My hands are at the sides of her
face. “You’re drunk.”
“I’m not that drunk.”
If I wanted to be any other guy for her, hell, even how we used to
be, the answer would be so easy. My dick already thinks the
answer is obvious. I’m hard as a rock just from hugging her and
getting to hold her for the first time in so long.
“I can’t, Caitlin.”
She blinks and looks away, frowning. “I figured. Of course you
“Hey.” I pull her back and bend down so I’m close to her. So damn
close I could easily press my lips against her, slide my tongue into
her mouth, feel her small but strong fingers dig into my hips.
Visions and ideas of what I want to do to her body flash in my
mind so quickly I groan. “I can’t go inside with you, honey. I don’t
want to go back to what we used to have. You mean too much to
She closes her eyes, and when she opens them again, any hope or
emotion is gone. “I understand.”
She doesn’t. Caitlin can’t have any clue of what she means to me
or what I want from her, and the time for this conversation is not
when she can barely stand. But soon, very soon, because there’s no
way I can continue this charade for much longer—especially if it
means seeing her prance into Dirty’s with more guys.
Before I know it, she’s on her tiptoes, and her lips brush against
mine. I inhale the sweet scent of her perfume, and it’s impossible
to deny her.
My hands yank her to me and I step backward, pulling her into her
apartment. The door slams closed behind us, and her back is
against it. She’s already rolling her hips, and I’m swallowing her
groans as she takes mine, accepting my tongue that I slide against
And fucking hell in a handbasket. She’s fire and ice and even
drunk she’s still the best damn kisser. It’s the kind of kiss that boils
my blood and shoots desire straight down my spine.
I pull back, breathless. “We can’t,” I say, although I’m gasping and
my hips have her pinned to the door. “I can’t do this with you,
Caitlin. Not like this.”
With secrets and uncertainties.
I press my head against her forehead even as her hands slide to my
waist. “I miss it,” she says, and it’s so sweet, so sad and faint, I
want to fall to my knees and explain everything, carry her to bed,
and make it all better.

Caitlin and Jonas had a good thing going, a nice little friends with benefits thing, with no strings or feelings attached. Then one of them "caught feelings," and it wasn't Caitlin... she has a strict no feelings or attachments rule. Somewhere along the way the line got blurred and Jonas decided he wanted to be more than just to be her "between the sheets" friend, he wanted to be something a little more permanent for her, and she freaked.
So they went their separate ways, went back to being just friends, and tried to put their dirty past behind them. But for some reason it just won't stay hidden....
Second chance romance has never been sweeter... 28 Dates is a charming little page turner sure to make hearts skip a beat and inspire a serious case of the swoons! This story shines a light on a couple who tries to keep feelings out of their relationship of convenience, but they quickly learn they are no match for the heart. This was a great spin on the friends with benefits story line, it's not too often you run across a story where the woman is the one with a no attachments rule. It was so fun to watch Caitlin try to stay strong and avoid falling head over heels, while Jonas did everything under the sun to convince her to give them a chance. That man was downright swoon-worthy!! I must say another stellar read from Ms. Lynn, it impressed on all fronts and left my heart brimming with feels! Highly recommend!
I requested an advanced copy of this title from the publisher, via NetGalley, and I am voluntarily leaving my honest opinion.
