Zandra York just got her big break, photographing a major project for a travel magazine. So what if she’s never traveled out of the country before? Or that she’s more adept at deciphering fraudulent financial statements than reading German train schedules? Her brother Jackson is on his way to act as her guide, and she can’t wait to experience Europe with him.
But when Jackson’s overprotective best friend gets off the plane instead, Zandra knows this will not end well.
There isn’t a damned thing Special Forces instructor Blake Monroe wouldn’t do for his best friend, but babysit Zandra when Jackson is unexpectedly called away on a mission? Nope. Not on the list. Especially not when she proves to be more trouble than he can handle—and far too tempting.
Between accidentally hiring a hearse as their rideshare, an unprovoked goat attack, and photographing erotic-shaped chocolates, Blake and Zandra can’t keep their hands off each other. But Zandra’s new career is about to send her all over the world and Blake is finally ready to settle down after his next deployment.
He’ll never ask her to give up her dreams. And she’ll never ask him to give up his.
Hilarity ensues when a world-weary Special Forces soldier must keep his best friend’s little sister, an independent travel photographer with zero experience and too much determination to go where she has no business going, out of trouble.
Blake switched on the room light and stepped aside to let Zandra pass, her floral scent trailing behind her.
God, she fucking smelled good, too. He must be some special kind of dumb to not have insisted on his own room.
Of course, bringing up the night he’d seen her with a skimpy pair of shorts and see-through top wasn’t a good idea. But did his brain hear that? Hell no. It went with what his dick was thinking instead.
She set her crossbody bag on the bed. “This will work.”
He let the door close and followed her in.
Remember the mission.
The mission. Right. He had to get her to her photo shoots, he had to keep her safe, and he had to get her home. That was his job. And after the way someone was able to easily take her camera lens from her, it was probably a really good idea not to let Zandra out of his sight.
The woman in question had pulled out her phone again and was taking a quick video of the room. Did people actually find this stuff interesting?
He dropped his backpack by the couch and glanced at the small kitchen. “Want some food? I can grab something from the corner store.”
“Ummm…sure. I guess.” She licked her lips as she typed out something on her phone, and his gaze was drawn to the slow sweep of her tongue, to the way it gently glided over full, red lips. Damn, he needed air. Fast.
He was at the door in two strides. “Why don’t you go ahead and get settled in? I’ll get us something for tonight and breakfast tomorrow.” Because even the sorry excuse of a kitchen was reason enough to keep his hands and his brain busy.
