Welcome to Apple Trial, Arkansas. Something must surely be in the water in this small town. Women are tossing their inhibitions out the window and the men are grasping at what to do about it!

She doesn’t want wild and raunchy, just a little spice…

Stephanie Faulkner listens to her neighbor’s nightly sexcapades through her bedroom wall. What used to make her blush now has her reaching for her vibrator. But she’s had enough self-fulfillment and now wants the real thing.

He wants commitment and long-term, not a quick roll…

The only woman Parker Madison ever wanted for long-term was Stephanie…but she’s off-limits. He’s tried to find a substitute but there just isn’t another woman like her. Now that she’s available, if he gives her time to get over her ex-husband…will he finally get his long-desired chance?

Short-term doesn’t lead to long term. Or does it…?

But when Stephanie digs up the courage to ask Parker for something a little exciting and spicy, he nervously rejects her. Still, she sets out to get what she wants—a little sexcapade of her very own. No commitment. It’s just sex, right?

Parker knows he could never be satisfied with having Stephanie temporarily. But as she continues to tempt him and he finds it harder to resist, he begins to think short-term might be better than nothing at all. Unless he can convince her into more.

Review: I have a confession: The book blurb had me at Arkansas. I can’t explain it, but reading a book that mentions places and things you personally have knowledge about, just brings a new kind of light to the story.

I started this book last night, and sadly had to put it down because my eyes were being RUDE! For whatever reason I guess it was time to get some sleep, even though my mind wanted the story to continue! When I picked the book back up this morning, I found myself wanting to reach in and give Stephanie a hug. Then other times I wanted to reach in and smack Parker upside the head . . . which I quickly found I was changing my mind about doing, because he had good reasons to be behaving as he was.

It’s a story that tackles the do we or don’t we situation. Going from friends to more is a slippery slope that only few survive.

Packed with so much emotion, this book will have you shaking before it’s over with.
