Ninety- two days. Thirteen weeks. That’s how long it’s been since I lost my love, my best friend. It’s been everything I can do to drag myself out of bed and get back to work, but I know Cooper would want me to move on. I think he’d even be happy if he knew who I want to move on with. The target of my affection, though, may not be so thrilled about my choice.

He’s straight. Or he thinks he is.

A womanizer of the worst kind with a face and body that keeps a steady stream of willing women at his door, he seems happy to work his way through the entire female population. But there’s no mistaking the way he looks at me when he thinks I’m not paying attention.

One way or another, I’ll show him what he really wants.

“I didn’t say I was falling for him.”


“You didn’t have to. Your eyes light up when you talk about him and you smile without realizing it. I’ve never seen you that way over a woman.” Ev comes up behind me and wraps her arms around my stomach, her chin resting on my shoulder. “You want my advice, Ian? Go with your heart. Don’t worry about labeling yourself gay, bi, straight, or whatever. Let yourself love who you love.


Let it happen.”

She steps back when I turn around and hug her. “I love you, pup.”


“I love you, too, but I’m willing to share you with another Reed brother. Oh! If you marry him, we’ll be in-laws!” Her excitement makes me laugh.


“Way ahead of yourself there, woman. Keep this between us for now, okay?”


“Of course.” An impish grin tilts her lips. “Will you tell me if you fuck him?”



“I told you when Mason and I…”

“Forget it, Ev.”
