On her thirtieth birthday, Elena Lombardo is looking for only two things: a good time and a hot man to love her body. Fun with her friends is guaranteed, but a man to love her plus-sized figure might not be so easy to find.
FBI agent Joe Flaherty is not the kind of man to hesitate when it comes to something or someone he wants. And what he wants is to have his hands all over the gorgeous curves of the Birthday Girl at the end of the bar.
After a night of intense passion neither will soon forget, they are brought together once again by a crime that puts both their careers and their hearts on the line. But a darker force lies beneath the surface, threatening both the case and the passionate love developing between them. Can Joe end up living happily ever after with his Birthday Girl?
“So, Birthday Girl, what did you wish for?”
He made flirting so damn easy. With a grin, she raised the stakes. “If I tell you, you’re going to have to help me make it come true.”
Joe’s chuckle was deep and throaty. His eyes burned into hers with lustful promise. “I’ll help you turn any fantasy into reality. You name it, I’m there.”
Delicious thoughts of him catering to her every sexual whim danced in her head. “Oh my...” She suddenly found it hard to breathe. “I wished for a night of wonderful fun, and...”
“And?” His voice was coaxing.
She immediately looked down. His gaze was just too much. “Well, it’s kind of embarrassing to say out loud...to someone I hardly know.”
Cupping her chin in his hand, he gently lifted her face, giving her no choice but to look at him. “I promise not to judge. I might even be able to help you.”
She couldn’t help but laugh at the coincidence of his statement. “I’m sure you could.”
“Well then?” He raised one eyebrow and leaned closer.
Okay, no chickening out here, El. No one can fulfill your sexual needs unless you make them aware of it. This was a problem for you and Brian, and it only led to years of sexual frustration. Time to be brave.
“I wished for a night of amazing sex.”
In spite of the intense heat that rushed over her face, she put on the bravest smile she could muster and looked Joe straight in the eye. His gaze told her she’d said the right thing.
“I’ll give you a birthday you’ll never forget.”
