Holly Russo couldn’t be happier.
Christmas, her favorite time of year, is only seven weeks away, and her boyfriend has just popped the question. David is steady and reliable, and Holly knows he’ll give her a wonderful life. The kind of life she’s always wanted.
Then her new neighbor moves in.
Josh O’Toole is also approaching the festive season with joy. He loves his teaching job. He’s about to have a baby with his adored girlfriend, Stephanie, and they’ve just moved into a new home to begin their life as a family.
But as Josh and Stephanie settle into their new house across the road from Holly and David’s, things begin to get complicated and soon the Christmas gifts aren’t the only things that have to be kept under wrap this holiday season.
As the new year approaches, nice girl Annie O'Roarke finds herself bored and lonely. She wants more excitement. More adventure. And more sex…even if it won't be with her secret crush, her best friend, Ryan Hennessey. Annie's determined to be “bad” for once in her life, and that includes completing her “naughty” list in a city where being bad is just an ordinary day: Vegas.
Ryan Hennessey is a firefighter who relishes his time off with Annie. Annie's the only person he can count on and he'd never jeopardize their friendship. Then Ryan discovers Annie's “naughty” list. Although he's stunned Annie is raring to explore her wilder side, he doesn't trust anyone else to keep her safe.
So long as he's there to protect her, Ryan's going to teach Annie the true key to being a bad girl.
A bad girl takes what she wants.
Will Annie be brave enough to act on the passion that sizzles between her and Ryan? And will Ryan convince himself and Annie that love is worth gambling for?
He's bossy, moody, and overprotective.
He's also a pro athlete who needs to focus on winning games and staying out of the headlines.
