She’s the One
by Erin Nicholas
Counting on Love, Book 1
Sometimes you see love clearly. And sometimes it has to smack you in the face.
When a stranger walks up and punches him, Ryan Kaye assumes there’s a good reason. But he’s stunned to learn it’s over a one-night stand that never happened —with his friend’s sister, straight-laced Amanda Dixon. When Ryan confronts her about the lie, Amanda apologizes, but Ryan realizes he doesn’t want her to be sorry…he wants the night they supposedly spent together.
Amanda’s not looking to add anyone to her long list of commitments, so she was only trying to let a nice guy down easy by telling him a fling with Ryan broke her heart. So what if the fling only happened in her dreams? But when Ryan Kaye tempts her with the chance to go crazy and fulfill a few fantasies, she can’t resist. Thank goodness one night isn’t enough time to fall in love…
Warning: Contains a hot paramedic who knows how to get a girl to let her hair down, a girl who thinks she prefers her hair up, some naughty laser tag, some naughty role-playing and a lot of falling in love.
“Okay, I’ll grant you all of that. So, you thought you’d flirt and dance a little, but Tim took it the wrong way.”
“And when you had to let him down you thought ‘what would Emma do?’”
“Something like that.”
“And you picked me because?”
“Because you’re…” She trailed off and her cheeks got even redder.
Ryan couldn’t help his grin. This he had to hear. “Because I’m…?”
“Something Emma would do.”
He couldn’t stop the laugh that escaped. No one could really argue with that, he supposed.
Amanda wet her bottom lip and looked up at him and said softly, “Sorry.”
He didn’t want an apology. He didn’t want her to be sorry for having the idea of the two of them burning up the sheets one night. He wanted her to keep that idea firmly in mind, in fact.
But Winters had mentioned something that Emma wouldn’t do—he’d said Amanda had fallen in love with Ryan.
“Did you tell him it was a one-night stand?”
He liked the idea that she would think he was so amazing that one night would cause her to be head over heels. Even if it was only in her imagination.
Amanda took a deep breath. “Yes, just one night.”
Ryan moved in closer, wanting her full attention on him. “Okay. Make it up to me.”
“Give me that night.”
