What happens when the internet’s favorite playboy falls in love?
I have the best job in the world. Date beautiful women and write about it.
But I want to take it to the next level: instead of writing about my experiences make it into an online reality show.
But here is the catch. My boss wants me to share the show with a woman co-host. And he wants that woman to be my best friend and co-worker, Margo.
I’ll date beautiful women and she’ll date hot men. Sounds fair enough.
So now I have to watch her fake date hot men. I used to love going home with a different woman every night, but suddenly this isn’t as fun. Seeing Margo with anyone else is driving me crazy.
And the more time I spend with her working on the show, the less I want to keep our relationship in the friends’ zone. And the harder it is to stop myself from imagining her bent over the copier.
Things are about to get unprofessional.

➳Owen and Margo have known each other since their college years. When they first met, they had nothing to follow of the sexual kind. However, they were both secretly attracted to each other. That brought a downside to their friendship in which they never revealed those secrets. After years of being close friends, and finally now as adult, working in the same field and the same job location, they both interact in a one night stand that consisted full of bar dancing and booze, booze, booze…
➳One thing leads to another, and Margo wakes up from blurred events of the previous night. A night full of fun, but also full of passion and lustful needs that not only herself needed to release, but also what Owen wanted to do. Though he did take advantage of her, he did it in a way that not only melts your panties, but swoons your heart because of everything he does and says. Though Margo does not see Owen as a romantic, he really is the ultimate definition of one. To her eyes, he is the ultimate playboy that wants and gets every girl he can find. After a drunk event at work, Margo is partnered up with Owen do to blog dates. These blog dates consist of both of them going on dates with OTHER PEOPLE. This is the turning point in which triggers the alpha male out of Owen. Though he know show to control his feelings and all of those urges he has whenever he is Margo, he is also a male. A male who just wants to pounce and claim Margo as his. When they both finally cave during that one night stand, all hell breaks loose. Intensity is not enough of a word to be used to describe their passion. After all that, they go back to everything as if it were normal. tsk tsk tsk
➳Their friendship of eight years did not go down the toilet, but their one night stand did cause anything to change. Tension and feelings that have not been exploited since their first years during college are definitely back, and though both of them know that if someone says something, it can break them apart. They would rather keep the tension flowing, date other people and make each other miserable cause of that, then actually enhance those mutual feelings towards each other. Will they ever hook up again, and will Owen and Margo finally admit what they are feeling candidly? This is one of those books by J. D. that I highly recommend to everyone. It is indeed not a safe book, but it has all of those aspects that make you want to keep reading to find out what happens next. So I highly admire this new novel of Jax’s and hope that in the future he keeps up with the great intensity and passion he has towards his writing…

“Thank god you live on the ground floor,” I say, as I rummage for her keys in her bag with one hand while keeping her from falling with the other. It’s not that I haven’t been to Margo’s place before, but when we hang out it’s usually at work functions or the occasional bar, and at the moment I can’t shake the feeling that I’m intruding a little.
“You know, you’re really fucking hot,” she slurs, giggling. My cock stirs at the brush of her lips so close to my neck, her warm breath against my skin. I have to shake it off.
“And you’re really fucking drunk,” I reply with a forced laugh, as the key finally catches and I kick the door open.
“No…I mean it,” she says as I step into her apartment, still holding her in my arms. “You’re like…the most beautiful man.”
“That’s very sweet of you,” I say, as I open a few wrong doors (closet, bathroom) until I find her bedroom. I walk in and lay her down on the bed, then pull away, setting her bag on the night table. “You should probably just rest a bit, let it pass.” I unlace her boots and ease them off gently, setting them on the floor before straightening up to go. This feels familiar, although I haven’t carried a too-drunk Margo home from a party and put her to bed since our undergrad years. “You need anything? Water, or—”
“Yeah.” Margo smiles.
Instead of answering, she mischievously beckons me closer. I look at her, dress rolling up around her thighs, twisting her body up in the sheets, my imagination starting to whirl a little.
“Come here!” she yelps impatiently.
This could mean trouble—the problem is, I like trouble. I groan and go nearer to the bed.
“Closer,” she giggles, and I’m taken with the smile, the way she grinds into the bed…
Her hand pulls on my shirt, her smile goes and instead her mouth is open now, weakened like she’s preparing to kiss me. I could so easily fall into her here, so easily bring my mouth onto hers, put my own hands under her clothes. I can almost taste her, appetite stirring…
Except being a real man doesn’t just mean knowing when to make a move, it also means knowing when you shouldn’t.
“Nice try,” I say, pulling back.
Margo laughs and pounds her fists onto the bed with disappointment.
“But I need to see what’s under your shirt. You still got those Grand Canyon abs, I bet.”
“Ok. That’s my cue to go,” I say, half-out the door. “See you tomorrow.”
“No! Come on! Please! I remember the view was fucking amazing. Just a little peek. A tiny little peek for old time’s sake. Come on, Owen! Don’t be an asshole. You know you want to show it off.”
I look back at her, hand on the doorknob, and find myself laughing.
“Happy now?” I say, pulling up my shirt a little way.
Margo screams and falls back onto her pillows laughing.
“I knew it! Just as perfect as that night you got locked out of the girl’s dorm,” she says, as I close the door and leave.
When I get back to my car, I’m still smiling.
