“I’m going to have more sex!” Lily said, to which her best friend Penny spit out the sip of beer she’d just taken, spraying the small corner table they sat in.

“I didn’t ask for your New Year’s resolution, I asked if you wanted to split a burger,” Penny said, wiping the back of her hand over her mouth.

“I know, but I just thought I’d tell you my plan. Since you’re so good with concurring your conquests, I thought I’d give it a try.” Granted, Lily left out the part that she had to first be having sex, to then ask for more. But she wasn’t. At. All. As in, a big fat zero in the getting some department. And it had been that way for a while. Not that she was dwelling, she had a lot of good reasons her dating life had taken a back seat over the last few years, but change was in the air. And she was ready to embrace it. She could care less about year, she was just ready for the new.

“Well, I’m all for going after what you want,” Penny said, taking another sip of beer, a bit more cautiously this time. “First you have to pick a target.”

They both looked around and the pickins in their small town of Diamond Kansas were…well…small. The few hot men around were either taken or happened to be some of Lily’s best friends. Other than that—

“Whoa,” Penny said and lifted her chin in the direction toward the pool table. “Haven’t seen him before.”

Lily followed Penny’s stare and sweet baby Jesus, there holding a pool stick in his fists, making his biceps do amazing things against the tight tee shirt he wore, was a sexy as sin city boy. He may be attempting to look casual in dark jeans, but everything from the clean shaven jaw to glint of wicked excitement only city lights could put in someone’s eyes, made this man stand out in a whole different way. And that way was Lily’s weakness. She’d tangled with an uptown guy years ago and he left her with more than a broken heart, he changed her life in more ways than one. Not that Lily had regrets, but she promised herself to stay away from men who were looking for bigger better things. Because she was a Diamond girl. Small town and never leaving. But that didn’t stop her from lingering her gaze on the intriguing stranger. There was something familiar about him, but she’d never seen him before in her life. She’d remember a face like that. Chiseled and stoic and so damn perfect it was weep worthy.

“Thinking of sampling that Kryptonite?” Penny asked. Yeah, she knew Lily’s weakness for men like that. Problem was, she was thinking about it. “Um…he’s staring at you.”

Lily frowned then looked back at the stranger. He was looking back. Intense heat radiated and she felt it all the way to her bones.

“Looks like you found your target,” Penny said with an encouraging smile.

“I don’t know…” Lily said but her gaze was back on him. The “him” that was eating her up from across the room with those bright gray eyes. She licked her lips and he matched her action. Oh my. Maybe city boy was interested. “It’s time for something new.”

But while this kind of man may be new, his kind was old news. She knew better. But that didn’t stop her from getting up, and walking his way.

There was only one way to find out how this night would end…And that was to experience it.

Good things come in naughty packages…

What does it take to turn a good girl bad? Sick of her interfering brother nosing into her love life―and by proxy, her sex life—Penny Diamond has decided she needs a break from her “girl next door” reputation. And she knows exactly who can help her… Tall, lean, and impossibly intense Sebastian Strafford is rumored to have a sexual appetite with a decidedly wicked flavor.

Unfortunately, he’s also her brother’s best friend.

Sebastian doesn’t do relationships. Getting involved with Penny―and giving into that carnal thirst he’s tried to ignore all these years―is just about the worst idea ever. But he’ll be damned if she turns to anyone else for her “education.” So Sebastian makes her a deal: just two weeks to indulge in every sensual sin imaginable. Now he just has to keep himself from falling for the good girl. Especially when she’s so deliciously bad…
