 Mercurial and charming, Tate Larson is a rising author and playboy who has a different woman on his arm every night of the week. Focused on his work, Tate has no plans to settle down any time soon. That is until he meets his pretty new assistant, Piper Donovan.  
Desperate to escape the promise of backwater living, Piper ditched her Alabama hometown and never looked back. That was almost two years ago. Now that she is out of a job and her bank account is running on fumes, she’s desperate to find a job, fast. She finds the break she is searching for when she lands a position at Bookish Temptations. A little dancing and a lot of drinks with the girls seem the perfect way to celebrate. After a brief but explosive encounter with a man she was never supposed to see again turns out to be the same man she will be bending over backwards to please, her every instinct tells her to run. But when running means leaving the life she has struggled so hard to create, Piper decides her only option is to continue working for the devastatingly sexy Tate Larson...even if it kills her. 

Unable to deny their growing attraction, they struggle to keep their distance in a relationship that requires anything but.

They did it fast –

They did it slow –

Tate Larson and Piper Donovan will leave you wanting and panting.

First time they met – it was a total explosion. Contrary to the pics – the first time they did it wasn’t traditional. It was on a bar – it was hot, dirty, mindless sex. They didn’t share names, address or trade numbers. After they were done, they went into their separate ways, pretending it was nothing.

The act had consumed their thoughts more than they would have wanted. They thought it was the last time they were going to see each other, but they were in for a big surprise came in Monday morning when Piper Donovan walked in on Tate Larson as his new assistant.

Tate Larson didn’t believed in relationship, after the men in his family had failed. He believed that failing in relationships is in their genes. He tried once – falling in love. But after his ex-girlfriend cheated on him, he decided to stick to the less complicated: one-night stand: no strings, no commitments, no names. That is until Piper came into his life. In fairness to him – no matter how much his love life or relationship status is in chaos, he is focused on his work.

Piper is in need of the job, so when she lands a position at Bookish Temptations, she owed her to herself to celebrate. With her friends, she decided to go out, dance a little, drink a lot and perhaps hook up a bit. What she didn’t expect was to run into Tate Larson, had him bend her over and gave her the most amazing orgasm in her life in somewhere she least expected. Yay. How can she possibly work with him?! But when bills are piling up, and leases are due, she needed to pull her big-girl panties up and be professional. Only that, the Tate that she knew that evening and the Tate she’s working with now are totally two different people. He’s an ultimate pain in the a** who makes her life miserable daily.

The attraction is strong, and both of them is struggling to maintain professionalism in the workplace. But sometimes gravity pulls to hard, and it’s simpler to just fall in rather than to fight it.

THAT FIRST KISS is a rollercoaster ride. Their chemistry is off the charts, I wonder why my Kindle isn’t burning up yet. These two is totally into each other, but because of work, past issues and insecurities – they tend to assume the worse. I love the characters, especially Tate’s mom and Sheila. I didn’t expect to like Tom and Casey too! I thought I’d want to rip them out from the story, but as it goes on, you won’t have a choice but love them as well. The couple are frustrating, but you will adore them just as much. This was one heck of a ride I totally enjoyed.
