She’ll complicate his plans in the naughtiest ways…

I guess I’m not in Paris anymore. Emily Gardner has returned to her hometown in Kansas to collect her things after her mother’s death. But the moment she steps back into the town, it’s like the past has swallowed her up. Memories of her wild and reckless teenaged years. Of her father’s disappointment. But it’s her childhood crush who wakens something even deeper in Emily…

Mitch Taylor believes in having a Plan. His life, his business―all neat and orderly. But with Emily’s return comes a whirlwind of feelings and temptations. Risk. Longing. And ultimately, a desire so strong that Mitch can’t help but succumb to it. But Emily won’t be tied down. Not to anything or anyone. And with one night of forbidden, sensual delight, all of Mitch’s careful control will come completely undone…

This was a really nice after work read for me.

I couldn't put this one down! I have read so many brother's best friend stories but this one did not feel like it was a rehashed story line with new characters.

About the author

Tori St. Claire

National Bestselling Author Tori St. Claire grew up writing. Hobby quickly turned into passion when she discovered the world of romance as a teen. Poems and short stories gave way to full-length novels with sexy heroes and heroines. She wrote her first romance novel at seventeen. While that manuscript gathered dust-bunnies beneath the bed, she established herself as Claire Ashgrove, an award-winning, paranormal and urban fantasy author, and also as Sophia Garrett, historical romance author. Her writing, however, skirted a fine line between hot and steamy, and motivated by authors she admired, she made the leap into sexier stories where the intimate relationship forges unbreakable ties.
