Lexie Winters is on a mission—to lose her good girl image and tempt resident bad boy, Ash Bodry, into her bed. Tired of being treated like his kid sister, it's past time for her to play dirty. She has her work cut out for her though when it comes to the sinfully sexy yet incredibly frustrating man.
As far as Ash is concerned, Lexie is strictly off limits. Not only are they friends, her dad just happens to be the sheriff, and years ago the man steered Ash away from a life of crime. No way is he repaying that favor by giving into his wicked fantasies of Lexie. But when the little vixen strolls into his tattoo parlor and requests a very naughty piercing, Ash's honorable intentions are tested to their limits.
Now that Lexie's hammered the first chink in Ash's defenses, and he's sweating bullets, there's no chance in hell she's settling for his hands off policy. Even if it means some flirty strip tease action and late night skinny dipping to convince him that this newfound naughty girl will do whatever it takes to get her man.

She didn't do one night stands and he didn't do white picket fences, but temptation made it hard to stay on the straight and narrow road of just friends.
A dozen years of wanting reformed bad boy Ash Brody was good girl Lexie Winters' limit. Years ago, when Lexie's father, the sheriff, had set the once troubled teenage Ash on the path to becoming a better man, her father's mentoring had put the bad boy and the good girl in close proximity that lead to a steadfast friendship. But Lexie has always wanted more from Ash, and there's no way the goody two-shoes librarian is going to let her off limits status keep her from the one man she wants, even if it means she has to bare her soul and a few other naughty parts to get Ash's attention.
As a tattoo artist, Ash Brody makes his living inking and piercing bodies, but when Lexie, the one girl he's always desired but can't have, walks into his studio requesting a piercing no good girl would have, things get more than out of hand. Knowing his downfall is unavoidable if he doesn't play it cool, Ash finds himself fighting the pull of a bold and carefree siren threatening him with all kinds of heart trouble.
Cute, spicy, and sparkling with bits of hilarious and uniquely original humor, author Jodi Redford's contribution to the Red, Hot and BOOM! series of contemporary Fourth of July stories is a romantic tale not to be missed. It features witty dialogue, snippets of the most improper innuendo, and a couple that readers will take an instant liking to. Nowhere else will a hero attempt to protect the woman of his dreams with a stuffed mounted bass trophy, so prepare yourself for passion, giggles, and more than one sigh of satisfaction from this short lunchbox length read. It's absolutely mouthwatering.
