When my best friend’s little sister walks in on me moaning her name, it’s all over. All restraints are shattered, and every boundary demolished. Nothing will be the same…
For years, I’ve tried to keep my distance from Dakota Cooper. She’s everything I’ve ever wanted and the one thing I can’t have.
But when she calls me in the middle of the night after someone tries to break into her house, I can no longer handle that distance, and I convince her to stay with me, along with her young son.
I should have known having her living under my roof would push me to the edge. Ignite the need that has simmered for so long.
The problem is, she’s forbidden. Off-limits. And I know better than crossing that line.
I can’t drag her into the dark secrets of my life.
But I can’t stay away from her either, so I do the one thing I shouldn’t—I take.
And now that I’ve had her, I’m not sure I can save her from who I am…

“Really kissing her for the first time. Nothing had ever felt quite like kissing Dakota Cooper.”
“I thought she might have been prescribed specific attire with the sole purpose of driving me out of my mind.”
“I’d wanted to give her everything I had, but the only thing I had been able to do was give her the one gift that I could. She viewed it as a debt. Like something she needed to repay. She could never understand that what I’d given her was my heart.”
“How do I have the bestest bestie in all the land? My Doodle-Boo always has my back.”
“Like I’d leave my Paisley-Cakes hanging?”
“it was the man who stepped in behind them that tilted the ground a fraction of an inch. Setting me off-kilter… Midnight in the middle of the day.”
“Love is on the house.”
“You’ve always liked feeding me, haven’t you? Taking care of me?”
“I thought that’s what we do for each other.”
“I promise I will take care of you. Protect you… Because protecting you is what I was created to do.”
“You are playing with fire, Dakota Cooper.”
“Maybe I want to burn.”
“Look at you, Dakota. Do you have any idea what I see when I’m looking at you? A goddess in the morning. The light breaking inside me.”
“Meet me in the place of the forgotten.”
“You are my life, Dakota.”
“You were a fucking vision standing in my door.”
““how am I supposed to get myself more of those Midnight Temptations if you aren’t there to offer it?” It was gruff and smooth as silk. Then he pulled back like he hadn’t just left my knees weak”
“You’re beautiful. Everything about you. The inside. The outside. That smile and the way you light up the room. Don’t fucking listen to anyone who ever tells you otherwise.”
“Don’t forget about me while I’m gone?”
“No, Cookie, I could never forget about you.”
“Fuck, Cookie. I have to be dreaming. You feel so good. So fucking good. Your sweet, perfect cunt hugging my cock. Show me how good you can take it.”
“I love you, Dakota. I’m gone for you. Since I was twenty-two fucking years old, I’ve been gone for you. Since you became the one thing in this world that could soothe the ache inside me. Since you became the reason to look beyond my circumstances. Since you reminded me of the good things this world might have to offer.”
“That’s what you are, Cookie. Home. You’ve always been my safe place. The place my heart was called to. The only place I wanted to be. Sitting in that tree with you.”
