Bottle Rocket by Erin McLellan

Freshly single Rosie Holiday is on the hunt for passion and excitement. This leads her to Leo Whittaker—a bad boy who waltzed out of town, and her life, thirteen years ago. Leo isn’t the type to stick around, but Rosie’s not going to let a no-strings opportunity pass her by.

When a business trip sends Leo back to his hometown, the last thing he expects is for his first love to hand him a list of scorching-hot escapades and a deadline. He’s happy to help Rosie discover her bossy side in the bedroom. Or in a fireworks stand. Or at a Fourth of July barbecue.

Their chemistry burns bright and fast, but what tore them apart years ago is still between them. They are polar opposites. A reserved kindergarten teacher and an irreverent artist. A nester and a wanderer. It will take a spark of imagination and a lot of love to keep their second-chance romance from flaming out.

Rosie’s patriotic fruit basket looked like a kindergartener had painted it, and she would know. She was a connoisseur of the art of five-year-olds. It wasn’t that she’d expected to be a pro as soon as she picked up the paintbrush, but she’d hoped it would at least be fun rather than stressful. Maybe it would have been fun if the community center had served wine like those paint and sip places, or mimosas, to account for the time of day.

Whatever. Painting was not going to be her newest passion. That was okay. She still had the whole hot-sex-with-Leo thing going for her. It would be fleeting, but maybe that was exactly what she needed to catapult her into a new frame of mind when it came to sex, intimacy, and relationships. Sasha—who until a year and a half ago had been the casual-sex queen, God love her—had been telling Rosie for ages that she needed to get back up on the old sex horse again.

However, this thing between Rosie and Leo wasn’t casual. It was impossible for her to feel casual about him. She felt realistic about him. She felt pragmatic. They would have fun with each other for less than a week, then he’d drive off into the sunset with his RV. She would be left behind with nothing but sexy memories and probably a broken heart.

Holy shit, what was she doing? Besides having a mild panic attack about her high school sweetheart while eating pistachio ice cream in her underwear.

Was this whole agreement a massive mistake?


Was she going to milk it for a handful of good orgasms and hope it didn’t obliterate her afterward?
