Skye Emery believes in true love.

A romantic idealist, she believes wholeheartedly that everyone will get their happy ending. Everyone except her, that is.

After drowning in the devastation left behind by a cheating father, keeping men at arm's length and finding solace in a dirty book and a pint of ice cream is a safer option. However, in the aftermath of a night that ends with a cheap wine buzz and the afterglow of a solo orgasm, Skye decides to dip her toes into the world of online dating.

Enter Ben Mackinnon, the sexy reformed manwhore with a complicated past of his own and a killer online presence Skye just can't ignore.

Ben overwhelms her with his perfect mix of sweet sincerity and dirty talking dominance. He pursues Skye with a determination she didn't know she craved and when they stumble upon a childhood memory that connects them, Skye's walls begin to tumble down.

Skye wants to believe that all men aren't carbon copies her father, but when Ben's past resurfaces she's torn between running to protect her heart, or fighting for the only relationship she has ever invested in.

This was a short story about Skylah and Ben. Two random strangers who meet on a dating app and hit it off. But are they really strangers? After a confession about their past, they learn that they once knew each other and offered solace back then too. Will their past come back to haunt them? Can Skylah open up and trust Ben and will Ben ever be able to trust and respect Skylah.

This is a case of Insta-Love. Chat, meet, and BOOM - I LOVE YOU! Oh, me too! There was a little build up, but everything was laid out for you with Skylah, you knew she had trust issues from the get go. Ben's issues were hidden until 60% into the story. Then you realize what we were dealing with.

It's a cute story, has some hot sex, has a guy who is determined to get the girl and a girl who just wants to be had

Graham is my brother's best friend. He’s always been my protector and my confident because he accepts me the way I am—and not many do. I can’t imagine not having him in my life.
Our weekend together was supposed to be a celebration. I graduated from college, Graham got engaged and signed with a pro football team, and my brother landed his dream job. It should have been the best time of our lives.

Except that the weekend started with me walking in on Graham's fiancée going down on my brother.

I complicated the situation by having sex with Graham after that, but I wanted to comfort him and, damn, when I saw desire in his eyes—for me—I couldn’t say no. I’ve wanted him for so long.

Where do we go from here? Do I try to pretend to be his friend again or push him to open up to me and possibly lose him forever?
