About Tempting Lies:
He’s out to prove he can do more than swing a hammer. After her widowed mother rushed into a regrettable second marriage, Thea Blackwell vowed never to commit to anything. Not jobs. Not hairstyles. Not men. Yet here she is dreaming about buying a house and having it renovated by the town playboy who never spared her a second glance. Too bad she lacks both the cash and the courage. Aiden Murdoch put his wild ways behind him to help his ailing father run the family construction business, but he can’t seem to escape his scandalous reputation. Then his childhood friend Thea shows him her money pit of a fixer-upper, and he stumbles on the perfect solution: he’ll provide the labor, and she’ll make him look happily domesticated in front of his father’s nervous clients. What should be a simple arrangement gets complicated fast when fake kisses lead to real feelings, leaving Aiden aching to prove he’s worth a lifelong commitment and Thea wondering if her pretend boyfriend can truly give up his swipe-right lifestyle. With forever on the line, will they be brave enough to tear down the lies they’ve told each other—and themselves? Tempting Lies is a witty, wild romantic comedy featuring a charismatic carpenter and the woman who loves to watch him swing his hammer. It’s a standalone romance with a happily ever after, so find your favorite breakfast nook and get reading!
The thought of losing her was too much, and with fear and adrenaline tangling in his chest, he poured it all out the only way he knew how: he lowered his head and kissed her.Kissed her? Hell, he devoured her, biting at her lips until she opened for him, sweeping her mouth with his tongue until she squirmed in his arms. He swung her so her legs wrapped around his waist, and his hand tangled in her hair, pulling enough to tilt her chin upward.“Don’t do that again.”Her brown eyes blazed. “If I do, will you kiss me like that again?”He was so far beyond the boundaries of their fake relationship agreement that he couldn’t see the line anymore. Still, he spun around so her back met the wall, using it as leverage to flatten her body against his.“I’ll kiss you any way you want, killer,” he growled.
