No more men…
Kristen Bennett had her heart shattered. Broken was too small of a word for getting dumped by the guy she thought she’d spend her life with. What really pissed her off was she couldn’t get past the hurt and lose herself in other men like she usually did.
Too much trouble…
Zane Hughes didn’t let anyone close. Close meant he could get hurt, and he’d had enough of that to last a few lifetimes. The only woman allowed in his life for longer than one night was his business partner and best friend, and she knew when to back off.
It’s all for fun…
When Kristen and Zane meet, it’s all business. Until too many hours together and too much wine give them both the courage to get as close as two people can get.
Neither of them wants more than a casual relationship, so what’s the harm in having one together. With Kristen’s re-shattered heart, and Zane’s complete lack of one, they’re the perfect couple.
As long as no one wants more than some fun between the sheets, or against the wall, or on the table.

Excerpt from Fake It Till You Break It
“Great!” Danica grinned broadly at her. “I’ll let Zane know you’re on the way down to the docks. He’s a bit of a flirt, but he’s a good guy. He’s harmless so don’t let him bother you. Since you’ve sworn off men you won’t have any trouble resisting his charms. Most of the women who come through here swoon over him.”
Kristen cringed. The last thing she needed was another cute guy with more charm than brains. Kristen was set on spending her summer sans men. It didn’t matter how charming or attractive Zane was.
“No worries about me. Like I said, men are too much trouble and I’m taking a nice long break until I can start to think about finding a decent one. I’m over the gorgeous flirts who are only interested in sex.”
Danica winked at her and nodded as Kristen gathered her things and headed back outside. She locked her purse in the car and pocketed her keys. She’d have to ask if there was a safe place to leave things the next time she was there, but for now, she just headed to the dock.
The walk down was beautiful. The water sparkled under the full sun of the late morning. Kristen was no stranger to Cayuga Lake but the beauty of it always took her breath away. The long, skinny lake was the shape of a finger, hence the Finger Lakes, so Kristen could easily see the other side, but it was far enough away that the middle was over 400 feet. InZane’s was at the southern end of the lake and perfect for the water sports that had become popular over the last few years.
Three boats bobbed gently in the water at the end of the dock. All three were speedboats but varied slightly in size. The only people nearby were around the mid-sized boat, one that looked like it would seat about ten people. She approached as two men heaved a large cooler on board. Another was going through the equipment. Two women and two other men were settling into seats at the front of the boat.
“Fresh meat,” the man who was going through equipment said as he looked up. “You must be Kristen. Damn. I’m a lucky man to be spending the summer with you.”
Kristen rolled her eyes. She’d had more than enough of men like him. She knew he was Zane and took her time looking him over. His broad shoulders were bare and well tanned, as was his beautiful chest. Tattoos danced around his body, blanketing his muscles like a lover. If Kristen was honest with herself, she would admit her mouth went dry looking at him. He was arguably the most attractive man she’d ever seen with his leanly muscled body and dangerously low shorts.
If only she hadn’t sworn off men.
