Operation One Night Stand by Christine Hughes - Release Week Blitz, Excerpt & Giveaway

Caroline Frost had it all-until her boyfriend banged the superskank intern, and poof! Caroline's happy little bubble disappeared. Now it's been six weeks of weeping, a mountain of ice cream, and a permanent buttprint on the couch. Enough is enough. She and her ladybits need an intervention-now.

Enter Operation: One Night Stand: Find a man who is hotness personified and have some much-needed sexy time. The only problem is that Caroline is torn between a flirtatious, well-built guy and the ridiculously hot bartender serving her shots. This was supposed to be all fun and no games, but like the perfect scotch on the rocks, no good fling finishes without a twist . . 

“So, need something to drink?” he asked Melody. I noticed she noticed him. I frowned a bit at the thought of her thoughts infringing upon the perverted scenes that ran through my head but I had to remind myself, yet again, that Brian wasn’t the target.          
            “Sure. What do you recommend?” Melody leaned in and purred the question like she always did. I swear to God that girl was sex in heels.
            “Body shots.”
            “Say what?” I, again, attempted to sit up and once again, Bartender Brian placed his hand on my shoulder and Melody clapped.
            “Let me demonstrate.”
            I felt like my eyes were going to roll into the back of head as I watched him pour a shot of tequila. With a shot in one hand and a saltshaker in the other, he leaned down and licked my neck. As he did, my eyes fluttered closed and I moaned.
            I heard him chuckle quietly.
            I wanted nothing more than the floor to swallow me.
            Before I knew it he shook the salt onto my neck and leaned back down. Instead of merely licking the salt off, he added lips and teeth and oh my God.
            I gasped so hard for air I swore I was drowning. Then he placed a lemon wedge on my lips.
            This shit doesn’t happen to me. Ever.
            I didn’t see him take the shot but I heard the shot glass hit the bar top.
            I held my breath and waited as he raked his fingers through my hair, then he bit around the lemon wedge, scraping his teeth on my lips. He must’ve bit the lemon because drops of juice and tequila fell onto my mouth. He used his lips and tongue to clean it up.
            “That was fucking hot!” Melody clapped her hands.
            “Thanks. I not only serve the drinks, I use them as entertainment.” With one hand in front of him and one behind, he bowed. Fucking bowed. I was a lick away from orgasm and he’s accepting applause.
            “A little help here.” I was not able to sit upright. Melody grabbed my hands and pulled me up.
            I whipped my head around. Bartender Brian was across the way chatting up a group of guys who were with my target. A few people sitting next to me at the bar clapped as I came to my senses. A loud chorus of cheers had me ducking my head to avoid the attention.
            “What the hell was that?” Sarah asked, laughing.
            “Look at you making out with the bartender! Looks like someone jumped off the celibate carousel.”
            “I did not! I was not making out with the bartender. He was just, he was just—” I looked to Melody for an answer.
            “Don’t look at me. Bartender Boy is hot! I say you focus on him!”
            I grabbed my purse and hopped off the barstool.
            “No. I made a deal and I picked my target. You’ll see. I’m going to win this bet!”
            Turning around, Bartender Brian smiled as he slid another drink my way. “Pink Panty Dropper.”
            “What!” How did he know what color my underwear was?
