Elissa s sure she can help King out of an awkward situation caused by his rebounding sister-in-law s misplaced affection. After all, she might be the last American virgin, but she could definitely play the temptress just to be neighborly, of course. But there s a problem with her good intentions. Because Elissa doesn t want to playact anymore. She wants the real thing with King. But Elissa knows the kind of passion a man like King expects: brief, intense and heartbreaking.
