When Emma Anderson arrived at San Francisco International Airport, she regretted accepting the distinction of being the maid of honor to Gaby’s—her childhood friend—wedding. It had been years since the last time she set foot in Menlo Park, where her parents had been killed. The rug where she had been shoving her feelings since that day looked bumpier than a camel’s hump. Who could blame her; if she hadn’t been selfish they’d still be around. Ever since that fateful day, Emma has been perfecting the knack of Getting By.


Cade’s wedding in Menlo Park—a city close to San Francisco—might be the perfect place for Jake Knight to shake the memories of his ex, Emma Anderson for good. Single, available women galore for an entire week was the perfect medication, one he intended to take three times a day for an entire week to return to his player days. It was a plan the former spy thought flawless until he came face to face with the maid of honor. Jake’s perfect retreat turns into a flight, fight or hide week of celebrations.

Great, Pretty Boy’s going to laugh, or worse kiss me until I lose my mind. Yes please.
“The way I see it, you have two options. One, we go downstairs and get you a new card, or you can sleepover next door.” He wiggled both eyebrows. “We can continue that kiss the rude pedestrians interrupted.” 
Can you say blunt? He remembered the stupid kiss. Who wouldn’t? If those are his kisses, I can only imagine what he’ll do during the sleepover. Dangerous territory, did I remember how to do it? Wait, is he timing me? Cocky boy, now he’s whistling the jeopardy song. Everything but that, he’s attacking me with my own weapons.
“You’re looking for more than a sleepover, right?” I scratched my nose and crinkled it. He looked up to the ceiling searching for spiders, checking the structure or praying for strength. Maybe he would give up and decided to turn around, regretting he asked me to sleep with him. Longing, and the need to share something with him, pushed me to make a decision so unlike me. “I can’t fight it, what are the odds. This is what, five chance encounters, well technically four since I only saw you earlier today. I should’ve skipped the party and stayed in my room; decision making is a bitch. How much did you pay Serendipity―because, man, you are consistent.” 
His grin, followed by a few movements to open the door of his room, made my legs wobble. Yet, I followed him while my mouth mumbled more nonsense. “You got protection, Pretty Boy, because God and you only know where you have stuck that thing before me.” That was a smooth way to remind him about condoms, right? “No names, this is a once in a lifetime event. I don’t do complicated.”
“Have you done this before?” He closed the door behind me. 
Yeah, but with a normal guy, not a godlike boy who has the power of…make me forget my…where am I?
 “Because I don’t want to—”

“Take my V card?” I laughed, hiding the nerve-wracking moment.
