Don’t call. Don’t text. Tweet me…
Married to her work, event planner Avery Kurtz runs her life and her business on a private message feed. She has no time to waste on emails or a love life, and Valentine’s Day means just more parties to plan.
But when Tanner Voss, best man in Avery’s best friend’s wedding, is assigned to help finalize plans, her world is turned heart-side up. The hotshot attorney might be a player. He’d hit on her before and she avoided that mistake but he’s also surprisingly cooperative, focused on making the perfect choices for their friends, and even on board with her messaging preference. Between the erotic dreams about the sexy litigator and her body urging her to forget caution, Avery is wondering if she was wrong about Tanner and wants him to do more than “tweet me.”Excerpt:
“Thanks for agreeing to dinner.” He indicated the booth. “Have a seat. Please.”
“No problem.” She slid in across the butter soft leather, settled her purse beside her and blew out a gentle sigh. “I’d say it wasn’t necessary to pick such a high end place but right now I need their relaxing atmosphere.”
“Tough day?” he asked, trying to keep his gaze from the way the soft material of her blouse draped against her breasts. Involuntarily his hands closed as if cupping those mouthwatering mounds and he had to give himself a mental kick. This dinner wasn’t to seduce her, at least not yet, despite the fact he was seized with a need to peel her clothes of and run his tongue over every inch if her body,
She gave him a wry look. “You’re kidding, right?” The waiter materialized asking for her drink order. “Margarita, please. Rocks, no salt.”
“That ought to smooth out the wrinkles.” He smiled at her. “So are you referring to the Will and Janice bombshell or did other things turn your day upside down?”
Her laugh had a touch of hysteria in it. “Oh, every day is nuts for me, but yes, Will and Janice managed to top everything else. Can you believe it? They want to get married in three weeks? And they want me—well, with your help—to take care of everything? Like I can just make it magically happen with all the pieces in place.”
“From what I hear about your business, if anyone can do it, you can.”
“Well, thank you. I guess we’re going to find out.” The waiter placed her drink in front of her and she took a healthy swallow before setting the glass back down on the table. “Okay, that helps.”
“I know the feeling. Hey, before we get into the wedding, it’s my turn this year to take care of the firm’s Christmas party. I wondered if I could have my admin call you and set up a meeting.”
Avery burst out laughing. “Tanner, Christmas isn’t for eleven months yet.”
He grinned. “I know. Just getting a jump on things. So can I?”
“If you want. Have her tweet me and we’ll set something up.”
He looked at her curiously. “Not a phone call? Don’t you talk on the phone?”
“When I absolutely have to. My tweets come in on a steady stream. I can just answer them without going back and forth, in and out like I have to with emails or texts. And phone calls use usually unsatisfactory.”
“Well, here’s to successful tweeting.” He lifted his glass to her and took a sip.
Avery Kurtz is the best event planner around, but even she has doubts about pulling off a Valentine's Day wedding with less than three weeks to work out the details. To top it off, both the bride and groom are going out of town on business and leave their best man to help cement the details. Tanner Voss is a sexy hotshot attorney and a player, just like the ex who broke Avery's heart. The chemistry between them is undeniable, but Avery does her best to ignore it. Except for the erotic dreams plaguing her nights.
I read somewhere that readers don't like dream sequences in books, but author Desiree Holt has to be an exception. The steamy sex dreams she treats us to, from both Avery's and Tanner's perspectives, sizzle right off the page.
If you like Bella Andre, the queen of red hot romance, then you will love Desiree Holt. Well written, well-paced plot, strong women, one super hot man, and steamy sex combine to make this Candy Heart novella a must read. 5 sizzling candy hearts for this gem of a story.
