James Laird and Lola Caraway have been next door neighbors and best friends since elementary school. James was always the ultimate player, and after graduation moves to LA and finds his place as a rising star in the porn industry. Lola, three years younger, is a studious overachiever and on track for graduation and success in college. Lola knows about and accepts James and his debauchery; it's never been a secret between the two friends. However, a hometown visit prompts James to face his evolving feelings for her, especially after his conservative family discovers his true profession and she comes to his rescue.
Not wanting to seduce the innocent Lola, he returns to California, where he sets his sights on becoming a superstar in the industry. While Lola is visiting James from college, they dance around their attraction to each other. After Lola admits she's never had an orgasm, James offers to be her hands-on teacher. A lifetime of friendship with a manwhore tells Lola that she should not get attached to James as a lover, as tempting as his offer may be. Can she please her body while still protecting her heart? From the author of some of the highest rated erotic romance on Smashwords comes this first look into a world of love, friendship...and porn.
“Okay,” she says sweetly, “Here are all the reasons you’re a wonderful person.”
I laugh, and I feel truly touched as she starts listing off all these things she likes about me. She covers everything from the way I always stand up for her when people are mean to her, to the fact that I’m better at driving in the snow than her, to how I make the best basil gnocchi she’s ever tasted. By the end of her pep talk, I feel like I could conquer the world.
“See?” She grins when she’s all done. “I told you you’re the best guy I know.”
I pause and look in her eyes. The pain is gone. All those awful feelings in the pit of my stomach from the way that my dad looked at me and the sound of my mom crying, have all kind of melted away. The relief of it is overwhelming, and I grab my chest as I try not to get emotional from this surge of happiness she’s just given me.
“Lo,” I say sincerely, “you’re the best person I know — in fact, I’m pretty sure you’re the best person who ever lived. You’re my angel, kid, and I want you to know that I love you and I appreciate every second that I get to spend with you — not just now, even back when we were little. I don’t think anybody’s ever cared about me as much or made me feel as happy as you do.”
“Aw!” She smiles and gives my chest a little reassuring pat. “It’s because I adore you, James. I truly, genuinely adore you, and anything I can do to make you happy makes me happy.”
I turn to her and caress the side of her face before I give her a sneaky peck on the lips.
“Down, boy!” She giggles and gives me a playful little smack on the shoulder.
“It was just a peck.” I laugh innocently.
“I’m not leaving this up to willpower,” she says, smiling a little flirtatiously, “because that’s a battle nobody’s gonna win.”
