Janiyah Henderson may be an adult, but her dad doesn’t see it that way. Granted, she’s enjoying her post-college life of little-to-no responsibility, but when her dad announces at a family meeting that she can’t handle working a “real job”, there’s only one thing to do: land a desk job and prove him wrong. When her brother’s best friend, Fredrick Jenkins, needs a new assistant, she knows she’s the perfect candidate. So what if she’s had a crush on the conservative accountant since she was nine? She’s the last woman Freddy would fall for.
But Fredrick is far from impervious to Janiyah’s charms. Though he can’t help but be attracted to her, he knows Janiyah is more interested in eating his cereal and teasing him than viewing him as more than the good guy next door. When he offers her the job, he can’t imagine her giving up her late mornings and colorful outfits for 8:00 a.m. meetings and pantyhose for too long. But as Janiyah excels as his employee, he fears he’s in danger of falling hard for a woman he shouldn’t care for.
Pretty soon the attraction they’ve tried to ignore boils to the surface. And after Fredrick shows Janiyah the man behind the numbers, she’s ready to show him that she’s just the type of woman he needs.

Twice Freddy had let his guard down. He wanted her, and it was more than just a small interest. She’d seen the struggle, and finally the decision to pull away, in his eyes.
The last time he’d done that, in the year before she went to college, she’d let him push her away. She’d believed that because they were too different, and he was too much like a brother, they should just be friends. She’d done her best and tried to move on. She’d dated other men, pretended as if Freddy was like a brother, and ignored the fluttering of her heart when he threw her the random hot glance. She was tired of ignoring the obvious. She couldn’t push Freddy out of her mind.
Her heart pumped a mixture of anxiety, excitement, and adrenaline through her system. It was the closest thing she’d ever come to being high, a surge that made her feel like she could do anything. Which meant one thing: a rash decision was on the horizon.
There was no way of knowing if it would be fantastic or disastrous until afterward.
If things didn’t work out, she couldn’t cut Freddy out of her life like other boyfriends.
If he later felt like her asshole ex, and thought of her as more of a fun pastime, it would hurt a hell of a lot more. Her brothers might throw in their objections, but since they all liked Freddy, she could easily overcome that. She hoped, anyway. Working together would make things complicated, but they wouldn’t be the first people who worked together and slept together. All of the reasons not to go with her impulse didn’t change anything.
Her heart wanted Freddy. And if Freddy wanted her, he could have her.
On the damn couch for all she cared.
The VH1 countdown on television went to a commercial. Then another. He was still in the shower. More than ten minutes passed. Very unFreddy like. He was a stickler on conserving water.
Reckless energy pushed her off the couch. She had to investigate. Something could be wrong. He could be sprawled helpless at the bottom of the shower.
The cocktail of anticipation and giddiness pumping in her veins drove her actions. It was unlikely she’d find Freddy lying helpless in the shower. But she might get a glimpse of him naked. That thought was so clear she would swear a mini Janiyah with devil horns had whispered it in her ear.
She gently pried open the bathroom door and peeked around.
“Freddy?” she said softly. He wouldn’t have heard her even if the shower were off.
She sucked in a shallow breath before breathing became nearly impossible. He definitely wasn’t hurt.
