Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Brody Courage wakes up after a night out with his brothers and finds himself naked and tied to his bed with no idea how he’s gotten there. Just when he thinks he’s going to have to rip apart the headboard to get himself loose, he hears someone entering the house. He thinks it’s one of his brothers and calls out for help, but it’s Lara Jacobs, his childhood friend and neighbor.

He’s humiliated to have to get her to untie him and swears her to secrecy. She’s quiet and pale and leaves after releasing only one arm. When Brody finally gets himself out of bed, he finds a pair of red lace panties stuck near the footboard. The lacy underwear are a perfect match for the red bra he’d glimpsed Lara wearing when she was bent over untying him. It’s then his memories of the night before start to flood back. He’s spent one hell of a night in bed with her.

Now he wants a night, or day, with her. One he can remember. Problem is, she’s avoiding him.
I found this e-book completely by accident and I was really beyond happy with this "quickie".  This is a new to me author and I will definitely be checking out more works by this author that's for sure.
Ok, so Brody wakes up one morning, after going out the night before with his brothers and tying one on, to find himself tied to his bed with really no recollection of how he got to be in such a position.  But then in walks his best gal pal Lara who unties him...kinda.  See what Brody doesn't realize is that Lara tied him to his bed and had her wicked way with him...after he had his wicked way with her of course.
Once Brody has gotten himself undone from his bed and put back together he finds this pair of lacy red panties that strangely enough match the lacy red bra that he happened to catch a glimpse of when Lara was untying his one arm.  Then the pieces start to fall into place which equals out to a "fuck me" moment (not in a good way) for Brody.  Now he wants to rectify the situation with night of mind blowing sex, with Lara of course, that they both will remember.
But there's a problem....Lara is doing one heck of a job avoiding him.
Now Lara is pissed at herself because she's always been in love with Brody and had known that he had been drinking going into their supposed one night stand.  She just didn't realize that he had actually had enough to not remember the night at all.
So now that Lara is avoiding him...Brody hatches a plan to get Lara right where he wants her...on her his bed....naked. Ok, so he has to lie to her to actually get her where he wants her but once things start rolling...The sex is pretty dang great.
I can describe my feeling for pretty much everything pertaining to this story...from the story all the way down to the characters in two words: AWESOME SAUCE!  Even as short as this story was I was completely engrossed in the story...Actually I was sad that it actually had to end.  Now after checking out more reads by this author on goodreads....I find that one of Brody's two brothers has a story written for him as well...Yup I've downloaded that one too.
