It was just a sexy game. Then things went south

Taylor Dayton has been holding back a secret from her best friend, firefighter Christian Bain: he s the only man who can douse the flames inside her.

4 ½ stars – Contemporary Romance/Erotica

I really enjoyed this fun, super hot quickie story about two best friends who secretly harbor non-platonic feelings for each other and decide to spice things up with a naughty little game meant to drive each other wild.

Taylor Dayton wants to set the sheets on fire with her yummy firefighter best friend Christian Bain, but she thinks he only sees her as an “ice cream and movie pal”. Little does she know that Christian hasn’t been able to stop thinking of Ta

3 1/2 stars (I'm rounding it up because I'm in a good mood.)

As quickies go, this one was very good. It had a plot - gasp, that was quite a shock! - and Christian and Taylor were very likable. I'd never have the courage to do what she did, but it was fun (and kinky) to watch her going for it. ;)
A quick, funky, sweet, sexy, funny, and smokin' hot story of two friends secretly lusting for each other, but afraid to risk their relationship with sex. All they needed was a little push and a whole lot of lovin'. Hunky firefighter for a hero didn't hurt one bit.

Oh, it had a plot, too. ;)

2.5 stars. Just a quickie that's been on my kindle for the longest time.

Not once did I get the feeling that these two were ever "best friends"... I'm just sayin.

One on One is a lovely short story about two best friends becoming lovers. Taylor is lusting after firefighter Christian for a long time now, but all they do together is watching movies and sharing ice cream. Her friend helps her to form an idea how to seduce him, namely playing the best friends card. She’s going to ask his advice on getting men to notice her. With the result that he can’t resist her.
I like best-friends-turning-lovers stories and the fact that the hero is a sexy firefighter is a

Definitely a cute story but it was TOO short!! I want to know what happens next? Does everything work out? etc...

I would have given 4 stars if it had been even another chapter longer lol. I felt like it sort of just left off in the middle of the story with no conclusion. Bummer.

Holy Crap this book is HOT. Cathryn Fox at her finest. This short story will burn up your kindle and leave you needing a cold shower or a hot body.
For Taylor Dayton, it’s heaven and hell having drop-dead-gorgeous Christian Bain as a best friend and neighbor. It may be wonderful having all those ice cream and movie nights with Christian, but Taylor can’t help but want more. Finally, Taylor decides enough is enough and comes up with a plan to seduce the playboy firefighter of her dreams.

Christian is doing everything he can not to ruin his friendship with Taylor by adding sex into the mix. But when Taylor shows up on his doorstep needing erot

I was promised a firefighter. Other than being told he was one, I didn't get one. Yes. Very bummed about that.

This is a very short story, mainly about the girl seducing the boy in an interesting way. No plot, no character development. All right for when you're in the mood for something short and smutty.

For a novella length story, this one packs quite a punch - friends to lovers, roleplaying, exhibitionism, backdoor action, scorching hot firemen, in addition to likeable characters. Kudos to Cathryn Fox - this is my first read by her, and I am impressed.
