And if you’re on Goodreads and haven’t added it to your To Read shelf yet, what are you waiting for?

Kayla and Ryan are stranded together, and Kayla has just found out her worthless ex-boyfriend has married his new girlfriend, after swearing he wasn’t the marrying kind. She’s crying on Ryan’s shoulder, but he wants to be more than just her confidant. Only trouble is, he hasn’t been honest with her about who he is:

“My friend Carolyn—that’s who I called on the phone—she’s got this theory.” She didn’t look at him, sitting back on her heels and toying with the hem of her little pleated skirt.
The motion drew his attention, making him want to slide his hand under it to explore the hollow behind her knees.
“What’s her theory?” he asked, tearing his gaze away from her legs.
Her brown eyes flickered up to his, wide with a mixture of innocence and forthright seduction that shot straight to his groin. She nibbled thoughtfully on her upper lip.
“She thinks I need to go to bed with someone else to put the whole Steve debacle behind me forever. Get back in the swing of things, so to speak.”
He blinked at her. This was the problem? Lord, he had to be the luckiest son-of-a-bitch on the planet.
“What do you think?” he asked, hoping he sounded calmer than he felt. It would be no big deal if she said no to sex. He’d just sit there all night with his giant hard-on, and they’d part the best of friends in the morning, no harm done. Right.
“I’ve always said I’m not the type, but she says that’s not how it works.”
He brushed a wisp of red-blond hair back and tucked it behind her ear. “And how does Carolyn say it works?”
“She says that you are whatever kind of person you say you are. If you say you’re the type who can handle walking away after a night of sex with someone you just met, then you are. Do you think she’s right about that?”
God, this girl’s straightforward trust and honesty was killing him. He’d lied about who he was. The least he could do was answer this honestly. “I don’t care what Carolyn thinks. I
only care what you think. And if you’re not comfortable being intimate with a guy you just met, you shouldn’t do it.”
A part of him couldn’t believe he’d just said that. He ought to get some kind of a freaking medal for discouraging this gorgeous girl from sleeping with him.
Her lips curved in a soft smile. “Funny, I had just decided
she might be right.”
