She’s a challenge he can’t afford to lose…

Navy SEAL Steven Thomas has only ever been able to count on three things: waking up in the morning, going to sleep sometime during the night, and Lauren Brixton. She’s been his best friend since grade school, and what they have is the only relationship he’s managed not to ruin.

Until one drunken night puts that all in jeopardy.

Lauren’s watched Steven flit from one-night stand to one-night stand, seemingly not interested in something more. So when the long-ignored attraction between the two of them blows up in their faces, she does the only thing she can—she pretends she doesn’t want him. But all’s fair in love and war, and Steven’s not about to lose the only person in his life who matters…


His fingers flexed on her ankle, and he swallowed hard. He couldnt do this. Couldnt forget where he was. Or that this was just anotheroh the hell with it. This wasnt just another woman. It was Lauren. His Lauren. And there was no ignoring that.

Hell, he didnt want to ignore it.

Grabbing the waistband of her shorts, he tugged them down her thighs with one harsh pull. She gasped and grasped his bare biceps. Steven.

Yep, still me.

Without looking at what presents he already bared, he yanked her shirt over her head, too, and finally…he looked. Hed waited so he could see the whole picture at the same time, with nothing in the way, and his patience was duly rewarded. After years of friendship, chaste hugs and kisses on cheeks, and clothes in the way…

It was his turn.

Her pale, smooth skin was flawless, and her tits were tipped with small, dusky rose nipples. Her waist was even smaller than he thought, even though hed seen it millions of times before. Her hips flared out to ridiculously seductive proportions, and she had a light dusting of brown curls between her legs, but the rest of her was bare.

She was, in short, perfection.

Way too flawless for a guy like him.

Lauren…He ground his teeth together and brushed her hair off her shoulder. He didnt want anything obstructing his view of her naked skin. Shit.

She lifted up on her elbows, all soft lips and naked skin. Whats wrong?

Nothing.He skimmed his fingers over her skin, right under her tits. I just need a second. Youre beautiful.
