The Dating Alternative by Jennifer Woodhull

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

After her fiance walks out just weeks before their wedding, Brie isn't ready for another relationship. After her friends convince her that what's good for the goose is good for the gander, she decides to give something more casual a try. When the good-looking guy she has flirted with for years keeps popping up, she's tempted. She may not be ready for dating, but Max is happy to offer her an alternative. 


Finding out your fiance is dating someone else is a real downer. What can I say? I picked the wrong guy. Gave him the wrong finger. Taking a break from dating seems like the logical choice. 

There are some great things about being single. Going without... you know, s-e-x... isn't one of them. My friends are trying to convince me that there's an app for that, but it's not working out so well. There is this one guy I've always sort of flirted with, though. For the first time since I've known him, we're single at the same time. I'm so not ready to jump into another relationship, but maybe it's time to find out if this friends-with-benefits thing can really work.


I have crushed on Brie ever since I first met her, but the timing was never right. Now, though, she's single and so am I. Just my luck, she's got me firmly planted in the friend zone.

When I find out she's looking for something strictly physical, of course, I offer my services—I mean, what are friends for, after all? The problem is, the more time I spend with her, the more convinced I am that she's perfect for me. I'm probably the only guy in history to ruin a no-strings-attached deal by falling for the girl. 

Now, I've got to try to make her see I'm not like her jerk of an ex. If she'll give us a chance, I know we could be great together. She's under my skin, and if she walks away, she takes my heart with her.

Only $2.99 for a limited time!

He sets his coffee down on the little table beside me and I sink into the overstuffed wingback chair and gulp down several more sips of the soothing, warm liquid. I close my eyes, finally starting to feel more relaxed.

Max returns a moment later and grabs my hand, leaning down close to my ear. “Don’t freak out, but bad news – your ex is here. I saw him in the bathroom and he’s headed this way. Follow my lead.”

He pulls me to my feet, sits in the chair, and pulls me down on to his lap, facing out toward the aisle. He nods, indicating he has a plan, and quickly undoes the top button of my blouse. Then he pulls me close, one arm wrapped around my back at the shoulder, the other around my hips, and starts nuzzling my neck and collarbone.

I’m panicked, confused, and turned on all at once. Jesus, he feels incredible. “We’re a couple, got it?” His words are hot and warm against my ear, and when he nuzzles a little further down onto my neck, his beard tickles my collarbone, and I start to giggle.

I unconsciously slide my arms around his neck. He is a wall of solid muscle, and being on his lap, his face against my skin, my hands running across his broad shoulders is all working together to make a need pool in my belly like I haven’t felt in years. My panties are soaked, and I involuntarily press my thighs together.

Fuck, Brie. This guy hasn’t even kissed you, and you’re about to come just from sitting on his lap. You need to get laid. Bad.

The thought makes me laugh out loud. “That’s perfect,” Max says, glancing over his shoulder, then pressing his cheek to mine. “Here he comes,” he whispers. His breath is hot on the curve of my ear, and it leaves goosebumps along my flesh.

Max squeezes my side, his massive hand stretching easily across the depth of my ribs. I laugh even louder. “Oh my God, stop it!” I giggle as I say it more loudly than I intend to.

“Brie? Is that you?” I look up to see Grant standing over us.
