Three reasons why rebound s-e-x with my hot neighbor is a very bad idea.

My life is already complicated enough

  1. He knows I wear Batman undies (please don’t ask)
  2. He’s older, sophisticated and so hot he makes me go weak at the knees

I know that’s more than three. But it still didn’t stop me.

On paper, we’re the worst kind of match.

He’s rich.

I’m . . . not. My second job is pet sitting!

He says we’re friends.

I say barely, but I do love those benefits . . .

The man rocks my world.

But he’s so not the one.

Which is unfortunate,

Because he’s also the one who got me pregnant.



β€˜I’m not having sex with you!’ Did I shout that? God, I hope not. The office is in an

old refurbished warehouse with brick walls, wooden floors, and cavernous

ceilingsβ€”the noise carries terribly. β€˜You know what, James, Harry, or whoever you

are? I’ve got a lot to do this afternoon so we’re going to make this very quick.’

β€˜I can do quick.’

β€˜That’s not something to smirk about.’ Damn.

β€˜It’s a skill,’ he replies smoothly. β€˜One that’s especially important for the time poor.

If you’re very, very busy, it would only take me a couple of minutes to get you off.’

β€˜I don’t need clarification,’ I almost cry. He steps away from the door when I hold

up my hand. β€˜And . . and inappropriate.’

β€˜But a useful skill to have.’

β€˜This conversation is inappropriate.’

β€˜You started it, Miranda.’ Why does it sound like he’s purring my name?

β€˜And now I’m ending it. This can’t happen again.’ I gesture between us like I’m part

of a Taylor Swift tribute act.

We are never-ever-ever having sex together.

β€˜And it’s James, by the way. Or Harry. Whichever you prefer.’ Great, he’s ignoring

me, though my expression must betray my confusion as he adds, β€˜James Harrison, at

your unending service.’

Oh. Well, the whole James/Harry thing makes sense now. Not that it changes


β€˜I can’t have sex with you.’ Never-ever-ever. Again.

β€˜Who said anything about sex?’ he says straight-faced, though his eyes glitter with

an unconcealed amusement

β€˜You did. Sexual serviceβ€”unending.’

β€˜That sounds painful. But I’m game to try. As well as quick, I can also do slow but

then you know that already.’

He’s deliberately trying to goad me, and what’s more, it’s working. I’m hotβ€”too hot.

My cheeks are burning and while I’d like to say they’re fiery with indignation, it

would be a lie. It’s more like I’m burning with need for him.

β€˜It doesn’t matter.’ I pull on the hem of my shirt then clear my throat. β€˜Like I said,

Friday was a one off.’

β€˜A onetime thing?’ He takes a step closer and I take one back.


β€˜A onetime thing twice?’ Another step for him and another for me, almost like he’s

leading me in a dance.

β€˜Congratulations, so you can count.’

β€˜Yes, and I didn’t even have to use my fingers. But I could if you want me to,’ he

taunts. I think I might spontaneously combust if he gets any closer. β€˜You know what

else I can do? See through your bluster. You’re scared.’ My thighs meet the edge of

Olivia’s desk and I realise I’ve nowhere else to go.

β€˜Scared of you?’ I aim for derision but end up sounding like I’m asking a question.

Am I scared? Yes, I probably am. I’m not going to say he’s the kind of man I could fall

in love with because he’s not like any kind of man I’ve ever known. He’s just too

different. Too handsome. Too rich. And altogether too much.

β€˜You’re scared of letting yourself like me. For more than my cock, that is.’

And . . . I forgot one. He’s also much too full of himself.
