Hands Off

After getting burned in the worst possible way, Bailey is DONE with men. Billionaire Roman is determined to convince her otherwise.

I am done with men. D – O – N – E. DONE!

I don’t care how much billionaire Roman Cadwell pushes (and, oh boy, does the sexy man push ALL my buttons), I am not dating him. Especially not when he’s wearing a golden band around his ring finger.

But what if Roman isn’t really married? What then? No, no, no. I will not fall into Lying McLiarson’s trap.

Only every time the man touches me, my body forgets I’m a good girl and wants to give in.

HANDS OFF, Mr. Lying Pants, before I forget I’m a good girl.

Although – no one said I had to be a good girl forever.

This billionaire small town romantic comedy features a woman who has sworn off men – even gorgeous billionaires who buy her expensive gifts, a billionaire who knows what he wants and is willing to do anything to get it, and a nosy, interfering Grandma who has no filter on her mouth and sex on the brain.

Author’s Note: This romantic comedy contains absolutely, positively NO cheating. None. But it does have a whole bunch of witty dialogue and a super sweet happily ever after. And maybe more drama than the author originally intended. What can she say? The characters have minds of their own.

Hands Off is a standalone book in the Love in the Suburbs romantic comedy series.

I end up plastered to Roman Cadwell – the very man I’ve been avoiding all night. 

I try to pull away, but he holds on tight. “One dance, Angel, is all I ask.” 


His lips tip up in a barely-there smile, and I forget how to breathe, which is exactly why I’ve been avoiding the man all night. I don’t get involved with married men, but if there’s a man who can convince me to give up my principles and play the bad girl, it’s this man. He’s not even touching my skin and yet it heats at the spot where his hand grasps my waist over my gown. 

While I’ve been fangirling over his looks, he’s maneuvered us off the dance floor and into a deserted hallway. I find myself with my back flush to the wall and Roman hovering above me. 

“I want to kiss you more than I want my next breath.” 

My head falls against the wall and my eyes slide closed. His hand cups my jaw and I can feel his breath on my face. This is happening. I’m going to kiss Roman. No, I can’t kiss Roman. What am I doing?

I raise my hand and push against his shoulder. “No.” 

He blinks at me in confusion. “What? Why not?” 

“No.” I clear my throat to get rid of the annoying raspy sound and try again. “No. I don’t want this.” 

“Your body is telling me a different story.” His hand moves from cupping my jaw to stroking my neck. I sigh and my eyes start to slide closed again, but then I glimpse something shiny – a wedding band. I growl before grabbing his hand and shoving it away. 

“You’re married.” 

Roman startles. “That’s what your problem is?” 

“How can it not be your problem?”
