Whipping her life into shape started when Erin McKenna exorcized her lazy ex-boyfriend from her life. Next up? Joining weekly bootcamps with her new trainer — and old friend — Luke Abrams.

Nevermind that the feelings she has are getting less sisterly by the sit-up.
 
Luke promised his dying best friend that he would always watch out for Erin. Looking out for and lusting after haven’t been mutually exclusive. Still, hands-off and stay true is the plan until Erin is suddenly single, and he can no longer ignore the crush evolving into something more.
 
But once they finally acknowledge the romantic elephant in the room, will Luke’s “big brother” ways keep Erin at a distance?

The Beach Break Coffee Bar was crowded and the girls squeezed through the throng of people to get to the table Evan was holding for them.

 

“It’s nice to be connected.” Ashley said as she slid into the seat next to Lucy.

 

Lucy smiled and started to respond just as Ashley smacked her on the arm. “Nooo,” she groaned. “That’s him over there.”

 

All three of her friends turned to look in the direction she’d pointed. Five good looking guys sat at a table laughing and drinking beer.

 

“Which one is he?” Mindi asked.

 

“He’s the jerky one.”

 

“You’ll have to be a little more descriptive.” Randi said. “I mean, they all look pretty friendly to me.”

 

“The one in the grey T-shirt. Don’t let that boyish smile fool you. He’s not nice.”

 

“I don’t know,” Mindi said. “I think he looks very nice. Look at the way that shirt hugs his biceps. Wish he’d turn this way so I could get a better look at his face.”

 

“What’s his name?” Randi had to raise her voice to be heard over the band who had moved back onto the stage and were warming up their instruments.

 

“Officer Lopez,” Ashley answered, trying to be heard over the music.

 

“What?” Randi raised her voice again.

 

“Officer Lopez!” Ashley said loudly just as the band stopped and the coffee bar buzz dropped to a din.

 

Officer Lopez and his buddies all turned to see who had shouted his name, and the lead singer of Reflective Lenses who was already standing in front of the mic picked it up.

 

“Officer Benny Lopez, you’re not even in the band, and cute girls are shouting your name. How’d you do that?”

 

Laughter rippled through the little coffee bar and Ashley considered crawling under the table.
“It’s okay Ashley,” Lucy said, “Evan just had a new refrigerator delivered. I’ll go get the box. We can smuggle you out of here without anyone seeing you!”
At least Randi tried to hide her smile, but Mindi made no effort to contain her amusement.
