She only wanted a fling…
When a case of mistaken identity puts Cade Tucker in the wrong place at the right time, he can’t believe his luck. Drawn to the beautiful Julia McCormack, he flirts his way into her bed, and they welcome the New Year together.
Though they agreed their time together was no-strings-attached sex only, Julia’s having a hard time letting go of the best sex she ever had. She dives into work at her corporate law firm, hoping to get her mind off the man who rocked her world. But then Julia finds out the senior partner has appointed a new attorney to work with her on her biggest case, and her co-counsel will be Cade Tucker. Her plans to make partner are in serious jeopardy when she and Cade disagree on the best legal strategy for their case, but what will happen when they can no longer fight their desire, and the company’s strict non-fraternization policy threatens both of their jobs?
Previously released on Entangled’s Flirt imprint – December 2013.
"This was such a fun read with some heat, lots of sweet, and a great story from beginning to end. Unlike other novellas where the story can feel rushed and incomplete, Nancy Fraser does a great job spending enough time developing the characters and plot to leave you feeling satisfied and happy. A great quick read that left me smiling at the end." - Em and M Books

This to me was a quick read. It was just what I needed. Sometimes you need a Lifetime movie in a book form. That is exactly what this was.

At first I didn't know what to think about this. There was a lot of sex, with a hint of there might be some plot at some point and I was getting bored with the sex part (weird, I know).
