“Two days. Nothing held back. Just forty-eight hours of
my hands in your hair and you stripped down to nothing.”

The Hierarchy of Needs

The Hierarchy of Needs

One weekend. No strings. And absolutely no falling in love.

Jamie Matthews is stuck in an epic small-town rut. Failure to launch? She’s its mascot. And don’t even get her started on Dean. Their hot one-night stand was years ago, but she’s still a sucker for his tattoos and wolfish good looks. Giving in to temptation could destroy their friendship, so she needs a way to shake him from her system once and for all.

Dean Trescott doesn’t do relationships. Especially since he’s already married to his failing family business. Jaime, with her bright future and all-kinds-of-sexy smile, is a reminder of everything he’ll never have. He needs to keep his mind—and hands—off her…until she offers him one dirty, wild, rebellious weekend.

Two days out of town. No happily ever after required. That’s the plan. Surely they can manage it without developing feelings, right?

The Hierarchy of Needs, book 2 in the Portland Rebels series, is a small town, second chance, friends-to-lovers, contemporary romance featuring some hot kissing in the waves, hair pulling, and a man who is damn good with his hands. Download today and let the sexy fun begin.
