Have you ever had your heart broken? Reece Jackson has, and he uses a peculiar kink to avoid intimacy. When the girl heâs always loved walks back into his life, will he be able to let his walls down?
RELEASING JULY 14
I didnât care.
As my best friendâs little sister, Macey Hale was off-limits, but the girl was tempting as sin and forbidden as fuck. I wish I could say that stopped me. I wish I could tell you I behaved like a gentleman.
When she waltzes back into my life with that same spark I fell for, looking every bit the beautiful woman I knew sheâd grow into, I have to force myself to remember Iâm different from the man she once knew. Iâm colder. Harder. And for good reason.
With my heart on lockdown and my hands aching to touch her, I set out to prove that I can keep myself in check this time.
No strings. No attachments.
And definitely no falling for her again.
If you love steamy romance, you won't want to miss this older brother's best friend romance.
This is book two in the Lessons with the Dom series, following The Gentleman Mentor. Both are complete standalone novels featuring sexy Dominant men you're sure to fall in love with. Enjoy!

"What do you think youâre doing?â I find her in my closet, down on her knees and rummaging through a black duffel bag that just happens to hold all my sex toys. Apparently she did see this when she cleaned up.
âAh, here we go.â Her fingers close around a generously sized flesh-colored vibrating dildo. âYou wonât do the job? Well, I have a feeling this baby will.â She waves it in the air like sheâs found the damn golden ticket. Then she rises to her feet and smiles sweetly at me.
For the love of God, this woman does not fight fair. She never has. âWhere do you think youâre going with that?â
âProbably my bed, then the shower.â A line creases her forehead. âDo you have spare batteries for this thing? It might be a long night.â
âNo way. Not happening. Give me the toy, Macey.â I reach out a hand, my voice as stern as the set of my jaw, my fingers barely avoiding crushing the crystal tumbler in my other hand.
A slow smile uncurls on her mouth. âWhy, Reece Jackson, are you jealous?â She eyes the toy in her hand and then lets her gaze slip seductively down to the crotch of my pants.
If she really thinks that toyâs size has me feeling insecure, sheâs insane. Certifiably. âYou really donât remember, do you?â Now Iâm the one smiling. Sheâll be in for a pleasant surprise later.
âI remember everything. I remember how you always made me keep my underwear on, and that I never actually saw youââher gaze flicks downwardââdown there. I only felt you with my hand, and since I had nothing to base it on, I assumed all guys were like that.â
âWell, in that case, youâll be sorely disappointed with this toy.â I snatch the dildo from her hand and toss it back in the open bag.
âWhat do you think youâre doing?â she asks, planting a hand on her hip. âYou left me hanging at the restaurant.â
âAnd you will stay like that until I say so.â
