By: Cara Connelly
Releasing May 5, 2015

wow what a hot book. The two main characters Mick and
 Jan Have loved each other for a long time. However neither
 of them is willing to act on these feeling as they do not want
 to ruin the friendship they already have. When they end up
 in the same hotel room and have to share the bed, that is 
when the true sparks start to fly. Mick is a firefighter and a 
hero, but he has a other reputation that he is afraid to hare 
with Jan. Little dose he know that Jan may very well be his 
perfect match and then some. I loved the chemistry in this 
book you could just feel it as you read it. If you have not read 
them the other books in this series, I suggest you go get them.
I hope you enjoy this book as Much as I did.

What's the New-Jan-Plan? Discover the answer in Cara
Connelly's newest Save The Date Novella, and see how
mousey Jan Marone gives herself the gift of living,
laughing, and finally loving … all under the hot Key West sun.

She'd come to Key West for a wedding, only to discover the
hotel had messed up her reservation. So although Jan
Marone has to share a tiny room with sexy Mick McKenna,
it shouldn't really be a problem. Mick's her best friend, and he
doesn't think of her "that way" … or does he?

Mick McKenna loves hard and plays hard. His thick black
hair, chiseled jaw, and hard, muscled body make him
irresistible. But when once-innocent Jan walks into his hotel
room, Mick can't believe his eyes. Now she's wearing a sexy
bikini and telling him it's time for her to "get lucky,"
making him protective and tantalized at the same time.

Worried she might be in over her head, he decides never to
leave her side … and suddenly their hotel room seems
smaller—and hotter—than ever. Mick's always been
hands-off with Jan—but has the right woman been under
his nose the whole time?

Jan made a move to duck out from under his arm, but he 
tipped his head toward the eye in the sky. 
“We want her to think we’re a couple, right?”

She let out a hiss. “I can’t take you anywhere.”

“I’m a certified pain in the ass.” He wheeled her suitcase 
along as they walked lockstep to their room.

When the door closed behind them, he questioned his sanity again.
 The room was claustrophobically tiny. And her light 
scent—the same strawberry shampoo she’d used since tenth
 grade—permeated the air, unsettling him to his marrow.

While Jan took it all in stride.

“We should hang our wedding clothes on the bathroom
 hook,” she said, all business. “That’ll cut down on wrinkles.”

She patted the bed, and he hefted her suitcase onto it, 
standing numbly by as she opened it. Then she took a 
flowered dress off the top, and he got a glimpse of what was under it.

Black lace panties.

Black satin bra.

His eyes fell out of his head and rolled onto the bed.


Jan was supposed to wear granny panties and old-maid
 bras. White cotton; no lace. He was absolutely, 
unequivocally certain of that.

She glanced around. “Where’s your suit?”

He opened his mouth but no words came out.

“Mick? Hey, are you having an attack? Can you breath?” 
She dropped the dress and pressed her ear to his chest, 
listening to his lungs.

Her cheek seared the skin over his heart.

Curling his hands into fists, he turned his eyes up to the 
ceiling. “I’m fine,” he got out. “I haven’t had asthma in twenty years.”

“Mmm, well, your lungs do sound clear,” she murmured.
 “But your heart’s beating like a drum.”

He took a half step back, away from the yard of soft hair 
tickling his bare chest like fingertips. His shoulders hit the 
wall with a thud.

She gazed up at him like he was a doofus. He could see the
 flecks of green in her root beer eyes. “Don’t knock the wall 
down,” she said, “or we’ll both be out on the street.”

And she turned away, oblivious to the emotions storming through his system.

“Where’s your suit?” she asked again. “Don’t tell me you 
haven’t unpacked it.” She bent over his suitcase, her ass six 
inches from his crotch, and he snapped back to life.

Bad enough he’d seen her underwear; she didn’t need to see his.

Batting her hands away, he closed the lid. “I dropped it at the
 cleaners. I’ll pick it up tomorrow.” He nudged her aside with 
his hip. “Why don’t you suit up? The water’s perfect.”

“Okay. I got a new bathing suit. What do you think?”

With that, she dug through her suitcase and pulled out a—God help him—bikini.

A sound erupted from his throat. Distress, but Jan took it as 
derision. Her face crumpled.

“I thought …” She plunked down on the bed. “I just wanted to try something different. A new Jan.”

The hurt on her face made him pull it together fast.

“First of all,” he said, “there’s nothing wrong with the old Jan.
 And there’s nothing wrong with…” He waved a hand at the 
pink-polka-dotted Band Aids that passed for a swimsuit. 
“It just surprised me. You always wear a one-piece.”

“I know.” She met his gaze, her expression earnest. 
“Maybe I should just—”

“You should just put it on. It’s”—too skimpy—“cute. You’ll 
look”— too sexy—“great.” He faked his best-pals smile. 
“See you at the pool.”

He did a one-eighty, and scrammed.
