His Temporary Fix by Sofia Grey / @SofiaGreyAuthor @EntangledSelect


Title: His Temporary Fix
Series: Love at the Beach, Book 2
Author: Sofia Grey
Publisher: Entangled Select Contemporary
Genre: Contemporary, Romance


Holly Jacobs loses her heart a little too easily. Never again. But when she meets the sexy soldier on the beach, Holly knows she's in big trouble. Zack Winter is gorgeous and in pain, and when he kisses Holly, all of her resolve melts away...

Zack is on short-term leave to attend a funeral, and he's walking a fine line. The loss is unbearable...and he'll do whatever it takes to distract himself from it. Especially if it means a night of searingly-hot sex with Holly Jacobs. Only his brilliant idea isn't exactly going according to plan.

One night isn't nearly enough. But if it goes much longer it might end in broken hearts…



Excerpt:

If I moved the slightest, I could kiss him. My mouth dry at the thought, I licked my lips and heard his breath hitch. We stood there, suspended in time, gazing into each other’s eyes. My arms were draped over his shoulders, his body heat scorching me. I wondered how soft his hair was, if I dared to slide my fingers under his cap or stroke the fine fuzz at the back of his neck. I knew if he brushed his lips across my skin, I’d melt. His stubble looked rough and scratchy. Delicious.
"Don’t you need to go, Holly Jacobs?” Even the way he murmured my name was sexy. This was crazy. Add that to my track record of bad decisions and getting involved with Zack was dumb on an epic level. I was incapable of having a no-strings fling. For me, it was all or nothing, and this time I was going to make the sane decision.
“Why don’t you call me just Holly?” Asking him another question was harmless.
I saw a flash of white teeth in the darkness. “I like your name.” He sounded amused. “Is that okay, Just-Holly?”
Dear God. In the middle of his grief and distress, he still had a sense of humor. I really needed to escape before I found any more reasons to linger. But I didn’t move an inch.
“You sure you don’t want to come back to my place?” His whisper reverberated through me, turning my spine liquid and my knees to jelly. He shifted position slightly and I felt him trailing a hand up my back, the fingertips tiptoeing with excruciating slowness and precision.
“Zack, I don’t do one-night stands.”
“I’m here for two nights.”
“I only met you an hour ago. I don’t know anything about you.”
“It’s only sex, Holly. Not a marriage proposal.” He sounded amused rather than offended.




Romance author Sofia Grey spends her days managing projects in the corporate world and her nights hanging out with wolf shifters and alpha males. She devours pretty much anything in the fiction line, but she prefers her romances to be hot, and her heroes to have hidden depths. When writing, she enjoys peeling back the layers to expose her characters’ flaws and always makes them work hard for their happy endings.

Music is interwoven so tightly into my writing that I can’t untangle the two. Either I’m listening to a playlist on my iPod, have music seeping from my laptop speakers, or there’s a song playing in my head – sometimes on auto-repeat.
