All grown up, the girl I’ve had a crush on since we were kids is a distraction I can’t afford when my team is this close to winning the Cup. But our living situation changes everything. A stolen kiss when her brother isn’t looking is only the beginning. We both know what we’re doing is wrong… but our forbidden romance feels too good to stop.
Jillian Quinn is an international bestselling romance author who likes her females just as alpha as their swoon-worthy male counterparts. Jillian is a writer and sports fanatic, combining her passion for both hobbies into her books. As a lover of all things bookish, Jillian has a serious book-hoarding problem and runs a blog in her free time.

When their apartment is flooded Ethan Waters and his roommate Will find themselves momentarily displaced, so they show up on Will's sister Mia's doorstep asking to crash with her for a bit while the repairs to their apartment are being made. Mia is reluctant to let them stay with her in her tiny apartment full well knowing that they could easily afford to stay at a hotel, but with a little sweet talking she finally gives in and lets them crash with her. Ethan knows it is going to be a challenge to keep his hands to himself around Mia, because they have a past, one with a lot of unresolved feelings and un-ignited passion, and he is dying to light that flame. Problem is lighting said flame could extinguish his friendship with her brother, and that is a line he just can't cross... or can he?
The moment Mia opens her door and sees her brother and his ass for a roommate standing on the other side she is ready to slam it in their faces, certain that they want something and will cramp her style. And true to her instincts she is right, their apartment is currently unlivable and they want to crash with her for a few weeks, while she doesn't so much mind her brother being there, she can't stand the thought of sharing her apartment with the man who broke her heart years ago. Until now she has done a good job at avoiding him, but him staying with her is going to be a real test on her patience and her heart! She plans to keep him at a distance, but he has other plans, ones that involve getting her naked, and she isn't about to let that happen... or will she?
Ethan is a sultry little tale that pushes the boundaries of friendship, reunites long lost lovers, and rights the wrongs of the past. From the first page of this one you will be intrigued with these wonderfully crafted characters, and not long after your journey is underway will find yourself being wrapped up into their challenging situation, and all the emotionally rich drama that surrounds them. I have read other novels from this author, so I am well aware of the story lines she is capable of producing, but this one really took me by surprise, it not only had the steam factor I am accustom too, but it also had powerful emotion side to it that really packed an unexpected punch... one I thoroughly enjoyed. I have to say this might just be one of my favorites from her to date, the characters were amazing, the story line was engaging and spawned a serious case of the feels, and she left me surprised, (in a good way) ... and in my book it doesn't get much better than that! Highly recommend this one, it sure to leave your heart overflowing, and your knees weak!
