Forty-one-year-old Nicole Woods was content raising her son alone, working as an ad exec, and indulging in the more than occasional cleaning frenzy...until the night she met Wil Blanco.

Her friends have decided that while her son is away for six weeks, it's the perfect opportunity for Nicole to have a summer fling. Heading the top of the list is Wil -- sexy, successful, full of life...and twenty-five!

Regretfully, Nicole declares him "hands-off," but soon he's complicating everything, from her job at the advertising agency to her self-imposed ban on relationships. When Wil becomes her top client, she has even more reason to adhere to her "hands-off" policy. So why is Nicole finding it so hard to keep her hands off him?

Once they were back in Wil’s car, Nicole put her hand on his arm before he started the engine. “Look, about that kiss last night…”

“Actually, I was thinking it was time for another one.” He leaned forward and tucked a loose strand of hair behind her ear, letting his fingers trace the lobe.

“That’s the problem,” she said, without moving her head away. “I can’t kiss you again.”

Wil caressed her cheek, then ran his thumb along her lower lip. This time Nicole pulled back. “I can’t. You’re—” just a boy, she wanted to say, but didn’t for fear of insulting him. Instead, she said, “I don’t even know you.”

He was thoughtful for a moment as he started the car. “If you knew me better, would you consider going out with me?”

She ignored the question. “There must be a hundred young girls dying to go out with you.”

Wil pulled out into traffic. “Maybe I like them old,” he said, patting her knee. She raised her eyebrows at him. “Er,” he quickly added. “Older.”

“Nice save. Look, nothing personal, but I don’t date younger guys. Actually, I don’t date period. No time for it.”

Wil exited the freeway and they didn’t speak again until he pulled up in front of her condo. Wanda’s voice sang inside her head: “He’s perfect for a summertime fling.”

If only she were mentally ready… “If only I were ten years younger.”

“Then I probably wouldn’t be attracted to you.”
