I’m on fire.
Not literally, thank goodness. But my whole body is tingly and damp and
the hair at the back of my neck is wet and sticking to my skin. I put my hand
to my chest and feel a trail of sweat weaving its way down my cleavage. My
Which means I’m naked.
I blink my eyes open and crane my head to find the source of the intense
heat. He’s laying behind me, his arm flung over my stomach, his chest curved
against my back. His breathing is soft, his hair messed up, and I have no idea
whether that’s due to a poor night’s sleep or me.
I feel that I need to point out something. I don’t usually do this kind of
thing. It’s not that I look down upon people who have one-night stands. I’d

Liam Salinger. My best friend’s brother-in-law and all around cocky rich
I’ve known him for a few months. Since Ava – that’s my best friend – got
engaged to his brother, Myles. Who is lovely, by the way. And yes, some of
that loveliness comes from the fact that he takes great care of Ava.
But back to Liam. How am I going to deal with this? I roll my eyes at my
reflection, like it’s her fault for getting me into this situation in the first place.
And then I swallow and the sour taste in my mouth makes me wince.
To delay the inevitable confrontation, I brush my teeth. And shower. And

the first place, or he’s had the good grace to leave while I’ve been skulking in
