Olivia intended for nothing more than a one-night-stand when she saw him in the bar that night, yet what she ended up with was more than she ever could have imagined.

Ian, a consummate playboy, never anticipated stumbling across her, but the moment Olivia came into his life, everything he’d worked so hard for was thrown into absolute chaos, threatening his career and sanity.

But what are they supposed to do when the real world refuses to be ignored?



The pair made it to the hotel a few minutes after leaving the bar. Olivia led him through the lobby and to the elevator bay where they grabbed the first available. Once inside, he took his stance opposite her in the shiny cubicle.

Olivia pressed the button to her floor.

She stared at him, noting that he’d only become more handsome in the well-lit space. His eyes were brighter, his skin clearly sun-kissed and his smile more sinister.

“By the way,” he said. “What’s your name?”

“Does it really matter?”

Her answer seemed to surprise him and for a brief moment, she wondered if he’d change his mind. To her delight, his smile grew.

The stranger shook his head. “No, guess not.” He pushed himself away from the wall and crossed the space with a wide step. His chest pushed against hers, pinning her in place. “Just curious.”

His hands rested low on her waist. Olivia kept her grip on the bar, remaining in place while he pulled her hips into his. The stranger dipped forward, burying his face in the crook of her neck. In the confined space without interference from the outside world, his cologne had been stronger, more inviting. Something about the spicy, woody scent caused her blood to boil.

Olivia sighed when his mouth closed on her neck, placing gentle yet intentional kisses along her skin. He knew what he was doing, teasing her with the blunt scrape of his teeth and the tender flick of his tongue.

Her heartbeat increased and her body tingled. Heat pooled between her legs and as the seconds ticked by, an ache followed.

One of the hands on her hip climbed, gliding over her cotton tee and to her breast. Her stranger groaned when he grasped it, squeezing it in his large paw. Olivia encased him in her arms, threading her fingers through his hair and holding tight.

His mouth moved higher, tracing a line across her jaw while he pinched her nipple taut. She tugged on his hair and he growled in response. The bulge of his growing erection dug into her lower stomach, hinting at something much more impressive hidden beneath the denim.

The elevator came to a halt and the doors opened with a ding, forcing the two apart. He stared down at her, eyes dark and lids heavy. Something primal had overtaken his appearance and she had no doubt he saw the same mirrored with her.

Olivia took his hand in hers and grinned. Something fun was in store, she had no doubt.

“Come along,” she said, guiding him out of the elevator and down the hall.

Unexpected insta-love in this short story--really great book. Fast read--I really enjoyed how the author was able to tell this story so well and even though it was not very long the whole story was told and you are not left asking what about...Really well written.

HOT Love Story
Written by PT reader on 18th May 2023

I thought this was going to be a typical short erotic story, and I was proven wrong. Oh, there was LOTS of steamy sex, but it was appropriate for the story. That’s what brought these two together. It was the character development and the plot that made this a super fun and enjoyable 5 star book. Everyone wants to dream of a vacation fling that brings the ultimate connection, and this was a real world version of that narrative. I really felt that this was a situation that could truly happen nowadays. Highly recommended for those who like a good story to go along with their steamy sex. Or those who just want to dream about (or believe in) that super awesome love connection that may or may not exist in the real world.
