SynopsisHarper Stills is making it. She's paying the bills, she's enjoying her time as a young adult, and she has the best friend of all best friends. When he moves out of their shared apartment and moves in a stranger, Harper's one rule of 'no sex with the roommate' gets put to the test.
Knox Gregory is a man on a mission. A one track mind leads him to rooming with one of the sexiest women he's ever met... but not under the right circumstances. He's not allowed to fall for her, not in his plan, at least.
Sometimes things you plan for get shattered, though, and in the wake of it so does a lot more.

Review by: Erin
OMG!! Where do I start? The parts that were funny? The parts that were steaming up my Kindle screen? The parts that made me say WTF did I just read? The parts that had me screaming at Knox? The parts that had me crying for Harper? When you combine all these parts together, they make an EPIC book. I ran through the full range of emotions while reading this story. The storyline was incredible, very addictive, and had me on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was going to happen and how I would feel next. The story flowed effortlessly and kept me guessing with each twist and turn. The characters were very complex and well developed. I honestly reached a point where I had absolutely no idea what was going to happen and loved every unpredictable minute of it. I love a story that can completely throw you off track and keep you in its clutches until the very end. I worship at your altar, Queen Fireball!

A new favorite for those who enjoy an enticing, kindle burning romance read that keeps on giving!
Not only do you get THAT book boyfriend, you know which one. The smooth talking, “I get what I want when I want”, fine specimen, of an alpha book boyfriend . The one that you’re like “I know what you’re doing but yet I can’t help but like you..okay maybe more than like you…maybe marry you..maybe..” yep, that’s the one. But you also get a no nonsense kick ass chick, who’s not only loyal and such a damn riot, the girl can pretty much beat any player at his own game. Okay well maybe not all of them..or can she? hmm.. I guess you’ll have to read it ;-)
As you can see, these two together create quite the duo. They build a tension so tight you can practically hear it when it tears. And a chemistry you can’t help but be anxious to read their next interaction.
Author M. “Fireball” Dauphin, delivers a “quench your thirst” read for the salivating romance reader waiting for their next fix. Bring the match…she’ll bring the fire.
“Hi, I’m Harper,” I say, smiling, inwardly cringing because I’m fairly certain I didn’t put on deodorant this morning either. What a way to meet, huh? Plunger hands, sweaty face, frizzy hair and BO.
“Knox,” he says, his hand enveloping mine in a warm embrace. I’m so drawn to him and his gaze I don’t hear Leigh start talking until he nudges me.
“Wow,” he chuckles and nods at Knox. “Told ya,” he says, winking and walking back into the moving truck.
“Told me… what?” I’m so confused and even more so as to why this Knox man won’t take his eyes off me.
I don’t mind it at all, but I know I’m a hot fucking mess. This isn’t a great first impression.
“So,” Knox says as I stare at the moving truck, waiting for Leigh to elaborate on his earlier comment.
What did he tell me?
I turn to look back at Knox and immediately grin. Dear lord, he’s good looking. I really want to see what’s under that shirt though.
And those jeans.
“Sorry… he’s just… weird.” I can’t find words right now. Not appropriate ones anyway. There’s so much I’d like to say to the man standing in front of me, but they all start off with ‘let’s fuck’ and I’m sure Leigh wouldn’t like me screwing one of his friends again. I’ve only tried it once, and good god he was mad after it.
“I know, he’s crazy. I bet you’re going to miss him.” He smiles at me and a slight grin comes to his face.
“Yeah. A shit ton. Did he tell you who he’s moving in with me? A damn stranger. I could be murdered in my sleep and Leigh wouldn’t even know about it because he won’t be here.” I furrow my brows again and try to shake off the anger that I’m letting him do this. He gave me three weeks’ notice so I really haven’t had any time to find anyone else, but as soon as this new roommate is out, you better believe I’ll be finding a place I can call my own with no one else to rely on for rent.
“I wouldn’t ever kill you, don’t worry.” My eyes whip to Knox and he grins then winks before walking over to the trailer. “Hey, Leigh man, I gotta get moving. I’ll see ya in a few.” With my mouth gaping, he walks by and stops. “I’ll see ya later, Harper. I think we’ll make just fine roommates.” The wink he throws my way as he slides into his car makes my panties practically melt off into a puddle on the ground.
That’s my new roommate?
I watch him walk away and can’t shake the giddy feeling I’m getting. I have a rule of no roommate sex, but that’s always been easy because I’ve always roomed with girls or Leigh, and he’d never touch anything that doesn’t have a dick. I’ve never actually been in a situation like this, how bad would it be to fuck your roommate?
Probably pretty bad.
About The Author
M. Dauphin hates writing about herself, so here's the basics you need to know. Coffee is always a way to win her over, so are images of hot men and buying her a house keeper (this one has yet to happen but she's holding out hope). Just bring her coffee. She likes her books on the steamy and twisted side but needs a good 'swoon' book every now and then. She writes a plethora of steam levels and loves writing more when her co-author is involved and they are making book babies together. She has two small ninjas at home and a large ninja that likes bacon.
And that's it. Check her out at www.mdauphin.com to learn more (maybe).
Oh. She also thinks you are pretty freaking awesome, too.
