Heat of Passion - Elle Kennedy
This book was a little more calm than the first and we actually see some time passing before the big L word, but Carson and Holly just met and they needed a little time to work on their fling. Carson was tired of his life and wanted a relationship, but Holly was afraid after her ex dumped her.

I liked Carson since the first book and this one made pretty clear his feelings, so it was nice seeing hime and Holly heating up in the kitchen and the bedroom, but the best was their first night together.
