As live-in tutor to a headstrong teen, Shay Walker has her hands full—and the girl's absentee father doesn't help matters, either. All Shay wants is to let loose and indulge in a birthday fling with the hottest stranger who's ever caught her eye. But her one-night stand turns out to be Jace Jennings, her student's long-distance dad, and now he's taking up residence at his lakeside estate and in Shay's most secret fantasies.
Jace isn't exactly a family man, but he's determined to do his best by his daughter—and the first step is forgetting how hot he is for her teacher. But close proximity and their heated connection keeps Shay at the forefront of his mind—even though it's obvious that she holds her heart in check. So does Jace—until they both realize that losing control just might mean finding forever.
