While Derrick is a ladies man, he has a code he lives by when it comes to the women he deals with. Sometimes those lines are tested; but that doesn’t mean one can’t appreciate the view…
She breezed past me and walked down the hallway. I followed, unable to take my eyes off her waist and hips as they swayed. I’m pretty sure she wasn’t trying to be sexy, but in those fitted jeans….
I ran a thumb over my brow and forced myself to look away and remember she was a married woman. As much as I appreciated a woman’s anatomy, there was at least one line I didn’t cross. Married women were completely off-limits.
The smell of cooked food grew stronger as we neared the kitchen, and my stomach growled. It was the perfect distraction.

About the novel….
When Derrick’s brother drives the family business into bankruptcy, Derrick is left without a job and only one choice: start over. With a new job waiting in Atlanta, the only other thing he’s looking for is a woman who’s willing to fit his no-strings-attached relationship policy. But then he runs into Kelli, a woman with a smart mouth who challenges him in every way. She’d be perfect … if it weren’t for the fact she had kids.
Shortly after giving birth to her son, Kelli’s husband announced that he wanted a divorce. Forced to move in with her newlywed sister, Kelli is faced with raising two young children on her own, finding affordable housing, and landing a job that will pay her bills. The last thing she needs or wants is a man in her life. But when her brother-in-law’s best friend shows up for dinner, it’s impossible to ignore the sexual attraction.
Fate and finances have another plan, though, forcing them into living under the same roof. Despite their differences, Derrick finds himself breaking his own relationship rules. But as his luck would have it, just when he thinks he’s ready to make a commitment, tragedy strikes close to home and, with it, issues from his past that force him to risk it all.
