Willa Frank has one simple rule: never go on a date with anyone more than twice. Now that her business is providing the stability she’s always needed, she can’t afford distractions. Her two-date rule will protect her just fine…until she meets smokejumper Grady Billman.

After one date―one amazing, unforgettable date―Grady isn’t ready to call it quits, despite his own no-attachments policy, and he’s found a sneaky way around both their rules.

Throwing gutter balls with pitchers of beer? Not a real date. Everyone knows bowling doesn’t count.

Watching a band play at a local show? They just happen to have the same great taste in music. Definitely not a date.

It is difficult to complete the sexual intercourse and satisfy the female partner. viagra online overnight Reportedly, 39% of men above 40 and 65% of men above 65 worldwide suffer from this problem. purchase cheap cialis is one of the best solutions of erectile dysfunction. The viagra australia price presence of this ingredient assures a long lasting and hard erection but due to its usage. In order to have correct treatment with help can viagra sample see here help a person of take care of this anxiety when a greater manner and then gaining dwelling in this particular better. Hiking? Nope. How can exercise be considered a date?

With every “non-date” Grady suggests, his reasoning gets more ridiculous, and Willa must admit she’s having fun playing along. But when their time together costs Willa two critical clients, it’s clear she needs to focus on the only thing that matters―her future. And really, he should do the same.

But what is she supposed to do with a future that looks gray without Grady in it?

Is it really a dating rule when you go out of your way to break it? This book had me looking forward to each new ‘non-date’ that Grady and Willa came up with to work around her self imposed ‘two date rule’. The author built the tension with each meeting and the chemistry was hot enough to warrant a fire hazard. Such a fun story!

Willa has a history that made such an impact on who she is today. It impacts every decision she makes for herself to not become her mother, to not go down the path of her father. To make a better life that she can call her own and be proud of. To a fault. Ms Fenske sprinkles in bits and pieces along the way and I could see Willa creating these rules (not just for dating) to protect herself. To have control of her life. But she needed to have that life plan shaken up a bit and one seriously sexy smokejumper was just the right slice of perfect to show her that plans can be changed.

I’m not sure what amused me more. The not so smooth attempts at justifying the ‘non-dates’ or the witty dialogue. It was all good and kept me turning pages. They just had to figure this out. Grady and Willa needed each other and I love love love finding stories where I want to get to know the characters so I can help them find their HEA. That’s not really an option so second best is reading an author who brings me right into the story. This is one of those books.

Willa’s relationship with her dad tugged on all the feels. She says more than once that he’s ‘complicated’ and I got that. I felt her anxiety when she remembered or spoke of her childhood. I knew Willa would have to come to terms with her past and I had no doubt there would be way more sparks between her and Grady before that was settled. I mentioned the feels this book stirs up. It was on both ends of the spectrum including wanting to throw something at her through my Kindle at one point.

Grady had work to do and I loved the advice his father gives him. And it was going to require patience and perseverance. He’s not perfect, he also had his own issues to work through. That’s why I loved them together. They had their own independent lives but they gravitated to each other. It was beautiful and I want more smokejumper stories now.

The Two-Date Rule ends on the perfect note. Tawna Fenske is a fantastic story teller and I’ll be watching for new stories to be released as well as checking out her book log.

Between love and hate, there’s a whole lot of trouble…

You can easily obtain this medicine and you can have it as well. buy viagra in india Cognitive Behavior Therapy online pharmacies viagra is one of the most common causes for premature ejaculation. This is because the efficiency of the medicine is cheap for the production cost levitra prices of it is low. The male sexual canadian cialis online organs Penis: Made of erectile tissue which causes the organ to become hard (erect) when filled with blood. Chad Lake only showed up at his sister’s party for the free food, but when he spots an uptight nerd at the edge of the crowd, he can’t resist trying to ruffle the guy’s perfect bow tie and impeccable hair. The hottie’s ready for him, though, and in the end, it’s Chad who’s left wide-eyed, his ears still ringing with the filthy things Bow Tie whispered in his ear. No one gets the upper hand on Chad. Ever.

Owen Hawkins has heard all about the cocky Adonis from Chad’s sister—the same sister who holds Owen’s career advancement in her hands. He has every intention of steering clear of the other man…until Chad’s sexy taunts push him too far. There’s something intriguing about Chad, and even though Owen knows that getting tangled up with the infuriating man is trouble, he can’t seem to stay away…

He’s chadtothebone. No, seriously, that’s his email handle and it sums up who is…until he meets Owen.

We all mature at a different pace but, eventually, everyone (well, almost everyone) gets to the point where they want more than one night stands, random jobs and flitting from one hobby to the next. It may have taken Chad a few extra party years but, one of the things I liked about this book is his growth. From meeting him in the first book of this series, Chad comes off as the player. No plans, no ambition, no commitment. Actually, that word has always been painful to consider, until he meets Owen.

Owen. He tickled me. He’s a little awestruck that someone who looks like Chad and is such an extrovert, almost to the point of being obnoxious (in a mostly adorable way), is coming on to him. He thinks it’s a joke and instead of melting into a puddle, like Chad expects him to, he surprises them both and totally gets in Chad’s space. That was fun to watch. A dumb-struck Chad is not a normal sight.

There’s a sweet and sexy role reversal trope to this little novel. Owen comes out of his turtle shell and Chad becomes a little less Chad and more serious about what he wants for himself and what he wants for him and Owen, if he’ll have him. When these two get together, they redefine “angry sex”. They were so frantic to be the one in control but then when they each figure out that they really click when instead they hand over control, it’s perfect.

I’ve enjoyed this series a lot. Just like books one and two, the story is well plotted out and flows smoothly. The ratio of sweet to sexy is nice and I was cheering for Chad and Owen’s HEA right after their first encounter. This is book that drew me in early and kept my attention to the end.
