Erotic romance novelist Sara Wright is searching for passion that leaps from the page, and she thinks the answer might be right under her nose. For eight years, Sara has been harboring a secret lust for her best friend and sometimes muse, Steve Larson.
Steve has loved Sara since the day he met her, but has long since resigned himself to being firmly in the friend zone. That is, until Sara confesses she's been using her fantasies about him as inspiration for the heroes in her novels.
Determined to be the man to give her what she wants, he takes a page from Sara’s books and plots his every move to make her his. But he isn't quite like the guys she writes about, and, in truth, he isn't sure he wants to be. With each encounter, he ups the sexual stakes, but fears he's giving her the wrong impression of who he is and exactly what he wants.
