Peek Inside Recipe for Seduction

After ten years of raising her younger siblings, Veronica Whitfield is desperate to get her sexy back. And why not with her brother’s best friend, Finn O’Reilly? When she propositions him with a game of dark seduction, Finn is tempted to indulge his hidden need for kink, but at what cost? He’s looking for more than a one-night stand, and his best friend’s little sister is off limits, no matter how badly he wants her in his bed.

Let the game of seduction begin…

Veronica Whitfield feels like a frumpy old maid. After ten years of raising her younger siblings, she’s desperate to get her sexy back. And why not find it with the man she’s been in lust with since she was twelve years old—her brother’s best friend, Finn O’Reilly?

Finn is looking for love. And not any love—true love. Complete with the white picket fence, two children, and a dog. He’s just been a little unlucky finding it, and he sure as hell isn’t about to consider his best friend’s little sister for the job, no matter how badly he wants her in his bed.

But then Veronica propositions him with a game of dark, delicious seduction. Finn is tempted to indulge his hidden need for kink, but at what cost? Following through could very well ruin their friendship, but maybe—just maybe—helping Veronica rediscover her sexy side is exactly what he needs to find love at last…

He'd never met a woman he felt comfortable enough to play with. To lower his guard and let her see this side of his personality- the controlling, demanding, kinky side. He'd never expected Veronica to be the one to cater to his sexual fantasies

Wow. Just…wow.

I reveled in Veronica’s newfound freedom, in her willingness to spread her wings after having them clipped before they should have been. I fist-pumped when she told Finn exactly what she was going to do to him. I grinned like an idiot when she followed through on that promise.
