Blurb:

She’s the one fire he can’t put out…

.

Jamie Lansing has had it bad for firefighter Smith Grayson for as long as they’ve been friends. Yes, he’s ridiculously charming and she might stare a little too long at his abs, but his dirty-talking, rough-around-the-edges ways aren’t for her. Plus, she knows that as a serial dater, Smith isn’t the type to settle down. But then a terrible, fantastic, mind-blowing mistake leaves her body craving more than one night.

.

Smith Grayson has only ever had eyes for one woman in town—his best friend Jamie. But convincing her a relationship between them will work is next to impossible with her refusing to see beyond his past. But when she asks for a week of no-strings-attached sex to get him out of her system, Smith knows this is his one chance to prove he’s not just the man she needs in her bed, but the man she needs in her life.

Lauren’s introduction to her TEMPTATION THURSDAYS excerpt from “Burn for Me”:

Smith Grayson, the dirty-talking fireman, is hot for Jamie. He wants
her and he’s crazy about her. They’ve been friends for years and they
have a blast together and he’s trying to convince her for more — to
date for real. But she’s so focused on just having one week of
no-strings-attached sex.

So in this scene, Smith realizes he is going
to have to win her heart through the sex. Well, not just through the
sex, per se! But he knows she’ll met for him in the bedroom, so he’s
going to have to use all his charms, including his dirty-talking
mouth, to get her to fall for him in every way, and then to date her
beyond the week of sex.

This scene is part of his seduction.

EXCERPT:

“I can do this, but there’s one thing I want out of the deal.”

“Besides sex?”

He nodded, inching closer to her, the corner of the bookshelves shielding them, as he lazily trailed his fingers down her bare arm. “You know we have fun together, and you know we fuck well, so let’s go out once. As friends. A friends-with-benefits date.”

“Smith,” she said, but her voice was already breathy. Her eyes looked hazy as he touched her, telling him she was starting to bend.

“One date, as part of your no-strings-attached plan,” he said, now reaching for her waist, brushing his fingers across her hipbone. She shivered at his touch, and he glanced around, glad they were in a section where no one could see where his hands were daring to travel. “Let me take you out to dinner at the end of the week on a proper date,” he said in a low voice, as he played with the waistband of her skirt. She drew a sharp breath.

“Maybe,” she said, and her eyes started to flutter shut.  

He moved closer and shifted her body. Her chest faced the shelves, so no one could see what he was doing as he stood behind her, grazing his hands underneath her shirt, then across her belly. “We could see a movie. Or we could have dinner and as we wait for the food I could tell you about all the ways I want to take you again,” he said. She arched her back against him. “Yeah?”

“And then after dinner, when you’re squirming under the table, all hot and bothered and as amped up as I am, you can come back to my place, and I can fuck you senseless on the kitchen table, or up against the wall, or maybe just in the hallway because we’ll want each other so badly we can’t make it to the bedroom,” he said, his voice a low dirty growl near her ear. “And it’ll be what you want, no strings attached.”

She hitched in her breath, not answering his question about a date. But right now, he wasn’t thinking about her yes to dinner; he was thinking about making her scream yes. He brushed the hair away from her ear, his lips buzzing her earlobe. “Are you wet for me right now?”

She didn’t answer with words. She merely nodded. “Do you get wet for me when you’re alone, Jamie?”
