“So many of my very favorite tropes in romance wrapped up into a story that will literally grab onto all your emotions, pull at your heartstrings and have you on the edge of your seat the entire time!!” ~ Marni Ortiz

Spencer Brooks was the most attractive man I’d ever laid eyes on. Not only was he my boss and father’s best friend but he was also the man I had been sneaking around with for the entire summer.


That is why my world shattered the night my father caught us in bed together. Angry as hell, my father forbade us to be together, but Spencer promised me that everything would work out. In the coming days, my father demanded I quit my job. Only he didn’t stop there. He also called Spencer’s ex-wife, who threatened to take Spencer’s daughter Nikki away from him, forcing Spencer to call us quits for good.

Heartbroken, I buried my feelings for the man I loved, and put in a transfer to another department to appease my father. Only to my surprise Spencer refused to sign it until after I helped him organize his company Christmas Party.

I could only do this if he promised to keep it professional, but soon I was noticing the soft touches and lingering glances. Then one night he delivered a kiss that brought all my feelings back to the surface. I try to fight it at first until I discover something that will either bring us together or tear us apart for good.

I cleared my throat. “Things are going great,” I answered, straightening the tie Dad was wearing.

 

Dad turned and looked in the mirror, impressed with my tie straightening skills. “Wow, where on earth did you learn to do that?” he asked, knowing full well I’d never held a serious relationship before.

Truth was I had come to learn to straighten ties almost immediately after Spencer and I had had an intense session of hot sex against his office wall.

I shrugged. “It’s just easier when someone else does it,” I said, turning away from my father.

 

“When is Spencer supposed to be back from that business trip?”

 

“Um, I believe he said Monday. At least that was what his schedule said. Why?”

 

“Good, I have to go out of town for work on Monday. I feel better knowing he is home next door to look over you when I am gone.”

 

I felt a blush rise to my cheeks and hoped that my father hadn’t seen it. He wouldn’t feel better if he knew that Spencer and I were involved. He certainly wouldn’t feel better if he knew the things Spencer and I had done together when he’d been gone.


“What time are you supposed to be meeting this woman?” I asked, feeling my phone vibrate in my pocket.

 

“I pick her up in ten minutes. I guess I should probably get going. She lives on the other side of town,” he said, looking at his watch.

 

I handed Dad his jacket and practically shoved him out the door and watched as he ran down the front steps of the house. “Make sure you keep the doors locked, and if you’re feeling ambitious, why don’t you pull up some of the Christmas decorations from the basement,” He called out as he climbed in the car.

 

“I might,” I yelled. I waved just as he pulled out of the driveway and watched until he was out of sight, then I took my phone and sent Spencer a message.

 

BabyGirl89: He’s gone.

 

Spencer didn’t respond. Instead, in a matter of minutes, he was standing in the entryway of the house, and I was pressed up against the wall in his embrace with his lips tightly pressed to mine.

Spencer Brooks was the most attractive man I’d ever laid eyes on.
 
He was not only our neighbor and the father to the little girl I babysat for, but he was also my father’s best friend.
 
All of those reasons combined should have said he was totally off-limits, but my desire for him was too strong.
 
After all, What could one night really hurt?

 
The air suddenly felt thick as Spencer’s eyes met mine. My eyes burned as the nervous flutter in my stomach began again. The longer we stared at one another, the more the heat grew within me and the more intense it became. I was glad when a loud ring finally pulled his eyes from mine and he began checking something on his cell phone that sat on the table in front of him.

While he was reading, I couldn’t help but let my eyes roam over his muscular arms and broad, strong chest and shoulders. I was completely lost in thought as to what he must feel like when he cleared his throat and my eyes flashed to his face. I had no idea how long he had been watching me watch him, but the smirk he wore told me it had been long enough. I wanted to die. How embarrassing. I could feel the heat in my cheeks as I met his eyes.

“Here it is!” Dad said, coming back into the kitchen and placing the drill on the counter. He was completely oblivious to the way Spencer looked at me.

I cleared my throat and reached for something in the cupboard so my father couldn’t see my flushed cheeks. As I let out a breath and turned back to them, my father sat back down, grabbed his beer, and took a swig, and then began talking with Spencer again as if I weren’t even in the room.

I slowly faded out of the conversation as I watched Spencer grip the neck of his beer bottle, bring it to his lips, and tip his head back, emptying the bottle’s contents. I couldn’t help but watch the taught muscles in his throat as he swallowed. Then my eyes traveled to his large, muscular hands once again. God he hand nice hands. A pulse of excitement ran through me as I wondered what it would feel like if they were on my body, touching me in places that I’d only ever imagined being touched in. Carly was right, this had to stop. There was no way I could spend my summer in this state, nor be like this while I worked under him, I mean beside him. Spencer placed the bottle on the table and his eyes wandered back over to me, and then he flashed that sexy smirk in my direction.

Spencer Brooks was the most attractive man I’d ever laid eyes on.
He was not only our neighbor and the father to the little girl I babysat for, but he was also my father’s best friend.
All of those reasons combined should have said he was totally off-limits, but my desire for him was too strong.
After all, What could one night really hurt?

I stared out of my bedroom window down into my next-door neighbor’s backyard and watched as he walked behind his mower, cutting his lawn. I looked forward to every Saturday morning, because that was the day that Spencer would appear shirtless and do all his yard work. Spencer and his little girl, Nikki, had moved in almost a year ago now, and from the time I’d laid eyes on him, I’d wanted him. Problem was, he was a good twenty years older, divorced, and a father, and I had only turned twenty a few months ago. Not that any of that mattered, except for the fact that he was also my father’s best friend.

“Still staring at your god?” Carly questioned.

“How did you guess?”

“Well, you were actually in mid-sentence, and you just stopped talking.” Carly giggled. “That was the only logical reason I could come up with. Unless, of course, you were having a stroke.”

I rolled my eyes. “I’m sorry, but how is it even possible that he can look just as sexy in grubby sweats, covered in sweat, as he does every weekday morning when he leaves for the office dressed to the nines in a suit and tie?” I questioned. “I mean, it doesn’t help that the man is beautiful. Thick, dark hair I’d love to run my fingers through, blue eyes anyone with half a pulse could get lost in, 6’2″ and a solid wall of pure muscle that I’d love to lay under. God, how I’d love to lay under him.” I grew quiet envisioning that image. “But in all seriousness, he looks dynamite dressed in a suit, and he looks just as amazing now.”

“God, I know what the man looks like, Ainsley. His picture is plastered on every bus stop and major billboard all over the damn city.” She sighed with irritation. The topic of Spencer Brooks had dominated every conversation we’d had for the past year.

“I think he makes the city look better. You can’t honestly tell me that you don’t agree?”

The phone was silent for a moment, and then I heard a huge sigh. “Is Spencer Brooks all we are going to talk about today?”

“I’m sorry…it’s just…”

“It’s just you’re obsessed with an older man,” Carly bit out. “One who just happens to be the same age as your father, which is just gross. He’s also, in case you’ve forgotten, your soon-to-be boss! Did you forget about that? It’s seriously quite a predicament you’ve gotten yourself into.”
