Nothing invigorates the five Carter brothers more than an honest day’s work–and the right woman to come home to at night…
Douglas Carter never expected the summer job he took at the post office ten years ago to become his career. But now, at twenty-eight, he has zero regrets. He’s happy to have a regular paycheck, good friends, and a sweet plan for retiring early. If only his cute but oh-so-uptight new coworker felt as content as he does…
Janice Baker only works at the post office out of necessity. Her real dream is to become a singer. At thirty, she may be considered over the hill in the entertainment industry, but that just gives her a sense of urgency–and a resolve to date only men of means and ambition. Douglas is obviously not a candidate, despite his good looks. Yet as work forces them to get closer, they discover there’s far more to each other than meets the eye–and that two actually work better than one–on and off the job…
Doug pulled his lips from Jan’s. She followed, not ready for the kisses to end.
“I need to taste more of you,” he whispered, his breathing getting more labored. “I need to put my hands all over that lusciousness, girl.”
Jan sat up and moaned. “Somebody please stop me from doing what I said I wouldn’t.”
He reached for the hem of her sweater and effortlessly pulled it over her head. “Baby, you can’t stop what hasn’t even gotten started.” His gaze was fastened on her globes spilling over the cups. He tapped the bra. “Take that off.”
He sucked in a breath. “Damn! You’re about to make a brother break his own rule!” He rolled his thumb over her nipple, watching it. “Beautiful.” Bending his head, he gently sucked her plumpness into his mouth while his fingers worked magic on her other soft globe.
The combined actions made Jan shiver and unable to think. That must have been it. Why else would she lift her body up, reach for the waistband of her stretch jeans, and begin pulling them down before he’d even asked her?
The move worked for Doug. He stood and reached out a hand. “I think we need to take this party to the bedroom.”
“Do you have condoms?” He nodded and turned to lead them into his bedroom. Like the living room it was tastefully decorated, orderly, and neat.
“I can’t believe I’m doing this,” Jan said.
“Me either,” Doug countered.
