From the Blurb:


When my best friend Shaun invited me to that party, I wasn’t expecting to meet anyone. I wasn’t expecting to meet the hottest man I’d ever seen in my life there. I sure as hell wasn’t expecting to have one of the hottest hookups of my life with him that night.

It was a one night stand. I didn’t even get his name. He was just the Birthday Boy.

But the universe loves to get in a good laugh at my expense. That’s the only thing I can think of, because it turns out Birthday Boy? He’s Shaun’s new boyfriend’s older brother.


I didn’t even want to have that stupid birthday party, but my little brother, Benji, insisted on throwing it and making me the guest of honor. At least the guys were hot, especially him.

We hooked up and that was supposed to be it. One and done. Hit it and quit it. Wham, bam, thank you Sam.

But its never just one night, right? Especially when he keeps popping up. And then I had the brilliant idea of planning a party with him for Benji and his boyfriend’s birthdays.

He was supposed to be Mr. Right Now, but the more time we spend together, the more I wonder if he might just be Mr. Right.


Birthday Boy tasted like whiskey and desire.

The moment our lips touched, I felt something burn deep inside me. It wasn’t love. It wasn’t anything like you hear about in movies or romance novels. It was lust and desire and it burned through my blood, setting me aflame from inside.

I shifted easily, climbing onto his lap, straddling him. The sounds of the party had faded away, distant and irrelevant. Nothing mattered more than the press of his lips against mine, his tongue’s insistence of parting my lips and exploring my mouth. I gave as good as I got, refusing to let him have the upper hand. Because seriously, who let some random guy at a party have the upper hand?

My hands moved up to tangle in those messy curls of his. The strands felt silky. His hands were warm as they slipped under my shirt, resting on my lower back, pulling me closer. I could feel his hardness beneath me, pressing into me. I could feel my own erection pressing against the zipper of my jeans, desperate to get out as we ground our bodies together, chasing friction and pleasure.

I wanted more.

Maybe Shaun was right, inviting me to this party. Maybe I needed to get laid and get my terrible ex-boyfriend out of my mind. Maybe Birthday Boy would push him out of my thoughts for the night. And if not, at least I’d get a good orgasm out of it… hopefully.

I was about to suggest we find somewhere more private. I assumed he would know somewhere given his intimate knowledge of BigBen’s basement. I just needed to force myself to stop kissing him. It was easier said than done, because the idea of not kissing him right now? That felt as impossible as not breathing.

I could grow addicted to these kisses.

Okay, no I couldn’t.

I didn’t even know his name. But for tonight, I could pretend that I could grow addicted to those kisses. I could fool myself into thinking this was the absolute hottest thing I’d ever experienced.

For tonight, at the very least, I could live in the moment.

I just had to stop kissing him. I just had to make that move, deliver on the promise our flirtations had been making since we slipped away from Shaun and BigBen.

And then, the universe made the decision for me.

It started to rain. I pulled away from his lips, panting, and looked at him. My hands were still tangled in his hair and his icy blue eyes were blown wide with lust. Fuck, I thought to myself.

“Do you…”

“Yeah,” I answered before the question had even left his lips.
