Breaking through barriers can be the hardest thing in life….But for happiness, it’s always worth a try! ~ Rosalie, Guilty Pleasures
I have a new name in a new city.Tye and I agreed to be friends only. Now he sleeps in my bed every night, holding me close, protectively. After everything that I’ve been through, I’m not sure that I can handle more, besides he isn’t a relationship kind of guy. I’m not even sure why he’s here with me.I saw Billie and wanted her immediately. I know that she has secrets but getting to know her is like unwrapping a gift, slower is better. Her scars run deep and every day is a struggle. I want to help her, to protect her from those that want to hurt her. I tell myself that’s why I’m holding her every night.We’re just friends… It’s for the Best that way.Isn’t it?After trying to leave the last behind and start a fresh life, Billie moves to the city where her girlfriend, Zoe lives. From the beginning, Zoe explained all she “knew” about Tyler Burke. She knew he was gorgeous, single for as long as she can remember, and know around town as the sex goddess playboy. So going into the meeting, Billie had a small pre-conceived notion of what exactly the town’s sex toy was all about.
Tye is one of the most prestigious lawyers in town and makes bank because of that. But after all his bachelor days, he’s ready to settle down and start a family. However, no one really wants to believe he’s turned over this “adult leaf”; especially not his every night partner, Holly. When he mentions to her he wants to go serious, she immediately cuts everything off and wants to move outta Dodge. Trying to deal with the pain becomes a lot easier when he meets the drop dead gorgeous Billie
Both Billie and Tye have had lives that haven’t really been horrible. Both are gorgeous and have pretty well off jobs (with Billie being a librarian and wanting to go into library law). I loved how Ms. Jayne slid Billie seamlessly into Tye’s life, but it wasn’t unrealistic. These two, deep down, need each other for so many reasons, and I loved watching the journey through it all!!
