Jax swaggered over just as the coffee pot beeped. He reached around me, leaning in close to take the pot, and pouring two cups before putting it back. “You always drink that much? I thought you were a health freak.” He dumped way too much sugar in the coffee.
        “It’s all about balance.” I shrugged putting a teaspoon of sugar in mine. “I’ll go to the gym tomorrow, and it will all balance out.” I sipped my coffee, watching him lean against the counter like he belonged in my kitchen. “Do you go?”
        “To the gym? Yeah, that one across town, Frankie’s.” He stared at the coffee, then me. “I’ve slept with too many women at World Fitness to go back. It got weird.” I nearly spit my coffee.
        “How many?” I looked into his gray eyes. Maybe it was the daiquiris, but Jax was sexy. In his button down, all the tattoos were covered, but I knew they were there. His arms had these skulls and stuff on them, but he never looked like a thug. He looked like a badass. Only Jax could pull it off. When he didn’t answer, I walked past him to the living room, and he followed.
        “Maybe eight?” Jax sat at the other end of the couch, slouching back in a classic manspread. I curled my legs under me, trying not to give him a clear shot up my skirt. At least my buzz left me a little dignity.
        “Maybe eight? You don’t know?” I teased, sipping my coffee.
        “No,” Jax said it like he couldn’t give me a number if he tried.

I'm trying to decide how I feel about this book, because I love Allie York. From the very start for
me Blair's job and her personal life don't seem to mesh. If you are a successful business owner
why would you be trying to date guys that work at smoothie bars?

This was a sexy-ish story. Blair and Jax are kind of f-buddies, until they aren't. There's extreme
attraction between the two, but they both are players. They want casual contact and not
commitment. So yeah...there's a lot of sexy business going on and a lot of talk about sex.

The to of them get together by accident; a broke down automobile leads Jax to take Blair home.

Sparks fly...and they keep on flying.

I liked that theses two players fell for each other. I liked that it was ok that both Jax and Blair
could enjoy sex and it be ok. There's a discussion about being a slut or a whore that was funny
and spot on.

The one thing though that bugged me, besides Blair who seems to date anyone with a penis, is
that other than sex, and, Ranger, the dog next door, her and Jax have no real reason to fall in

I realize this is a novella, but I do like a bit of real life in my books. If you are going to be in love,
there has to be something that gets you there, and good sex just isn't reason enough.

The friends w/benefits aspect of the story worked, but the HEA didn't work for me. Still it was an
enjoyable read.
