What happens when your next door neighbor is the hottest, most notorious playboy in all of South Beach?
Reece Rowe is on hiatus from respectability. Before she returns to her stable, boring existence of charity events and dating predictable, stuffy suitors who are only interested in getting closer to the wealthy family who adopted her, she’s going to get a taste of what she’s been missing. She screws up her courage and heads to Vincent Ferguson’s office to find out what all the women in South Beach already seem to know about him.
Once CEO Vin Ferguson’s tech company goes public, he’ll have proved he’s no longer the poor, gritty kid from the wrong side of the tracks. But, citing his bad boy reputation, some financial backers waver, and his friends suggest dating a more respectable woman to improve his image. Ridiculous. Because delectable but snooty socialites, like his next door neighbor, are way out of his league.
And then, Reese walks through his office door and makes him an offer. To say his jaw hits the floor is an understatement.
And he can’t believe what she just proposed…
What are you wearing?
Her skin heated at the innuendo, and she felt her face flush, despite being alone. Feeling naughty, she shed her tank top and jeans and hopped in the shower. She didn’t have to answer him right away.
Twenty minutes later, with the water still dripping from her hair, she texted back,
Just got out of the shower.
His reply was immediate.
A picture’s worth a 1,000 words.
After applying her favorite lotion and sliding into her bra and underwear set, she scrolled through her phone until she found the silver shower head streaming water and sent that emoji.
A peach and clapping hands appeared, and it took her a moment to figure out the meaning. When she did, her nipples tightened.
She sent him back a French flag and lips. Shouldn’t they start slow?
His reply—the French flag, lips, and a honey pot— sent heat straight between her legs. No question, sex was happening. Tonight. And now, her underwear was as wet as her hair.
She took her time with the blow dryer and changed into a different underwear set. She hadn’t responded to his last text, but a new one came through.
Meeting almost over. See you in the garden.
The man had been sexting from his boardroom? She sent him the snowflake.
He sent back the fire emoji.
