Bailey Edwards wants a man. Unfortunately, all the good ones seem to be taken or… well, nonexistent. So, she has decided to make a pass at her best guy friend, Sebastian Emerzian. He is sexy, funny, and a great friend. So it seems perfectly natural that he would make the perfect sex buddy. Unfortunately…Sebastian has no intentions of going along with her idea.

When Bailey proposes her sex buddy idea to him, Sebastian is shocked and a bit angry. He cares for Bailey as a friend though they do share a strong sexual attraction. He has always noticed it, but there is no way he is going to be a sex buddy. Not when he wants so much more from Bailey. He is determined to show her that the heat and intensity between them can transcend the friends only relationship and move them deeply, and hopefully forever, into love.


In their sequel to MAVERICK’S BLACK CAT, Lena Matthews and Maggie Casper once again bring on the heat and sensuality. Bailey’s snappy personality combined with Sebastian’s more urbane personality is a recipe for hot sexual attraction. Fortunately, there is a lot of depth beneath their exteriors that these authors do a wonderful job of uncovering. Determined, strong-willed, fearless, and vulnerable, Bailey is a good counterpart for Sebastian’s own determined, edgy and charismatic personality. They clash, battle and exchange quips, all with hints of love flowing between them. Sebastian is definitely more aware of his feelings than Bailey. He is not afraid to act, but he is afraid of losing Bailey permanently. It will take compromise, passion, fun, and trust to move beyond the FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS relationship into a lasting and loving relationship. With class, style, sex appeal and lots of earthy language, Maggie Casper and Lena Matthews up the notch on love and friendship in this irresistible read. You may never look at your own special guy friend in quite the same way.
