We’ve all heard the term, Friends with Benefits. If you haven’t, let me explain. Friends with benefits (FoB) are those people you consider your close friends with whom you also engage in intercourse. Oh, hell, let’s call it what it is. They’re fuck buddies. Usually there’s the claim that no true feelings beyond friendship are involved, but nine times out of ten that’s total bull cocky. People simply say that because they want the opportunity to try out the goods for free. Well, there’s another kind of friendship that isn’t quite as inviting, but is just as painful in the end ─ it’s called Friend of Convenience.

Cali Stanton has one goal in life, being a doctor. She has spent the last two years helping the less fortunate in Africa. Itâs a job she loves and intends to do for the foreseeable future. That is until she receives a call from her father saying heâs been injured and needs her back in Chicago. Less than a week later she finds herself behind her fatherâs desk at Stanton Enterprises, running the family businessâ¦something she never wanted to do. But how could she say no to her father when he insists that she is the only one he can trust?
Matthew Andersen and his brother, Jason, have spent the last two years managing security at Stanton Enterprises. However, someone is determined to take down the company and with it its acting CEO, Cali Stanton.
Cali and Matthew must work together to find out who is behind the threats to not only the company but to Cali herself while they fight their growing attraction for each other. Can they figure out the hidden threat before itâs too late?
He scanned her face as if he were looking for the answers to solve the worldâs deepest mysteries. âCali?â
âHow many times?â she asked. âHow many times and then you just close down and act like nothing happened?â
âThree,â he said, his voice flat.
She stepped closer and looked into his eyes. She hadnât expected him to answer her. Or if he did, she was expecting something more along the lines of, âI donât know what youâre talking about.â
Matthew met her gaze with firm determination. âIn my office.â
He took a step closer. âIn your office.â
Cali watched the movement of his throat as he swallowed. The room seemed to be getting warmer.
Matthew took another step, closing the distance between them. âLast night.â
Her heart was hammering in her ears. He was right in front of her now. Close enough that she could feel the heat radiating off him. Close enough that she could smell the cologne he was wearing.
âThatâs how many times Iâve almost kissed you,â he whispered, his breath ghosting across her face, his lips mere inches from hers.
She couldnât pull her gaze away from his.
âFour.â He said it so soft she could barely hear.
Caliâs heart skipped a beat and it felt as if all the air had been sucked out of the room.
He tilted his head forward, bringing their lips even closer. âTell me no, Cali. Tell me to stop.â
About The Author
Sherri spent most of her childhood detesting English class. It was one of her least favorite subjects because she never seemed to fit into the standard mold. She wasn't good at spelling, or following grammar rules, and outlines made her head spin. For that reason, Sherri never imagined becoming an author.
At the age of thirty, all of that changed. After getting frustrated with the direction a television show was taking two of its characters, Sherri decided to try her hand at writing an alternate ending, and give the characters their happily ever after. By the time the story finished, it was one of the top ten read stories on the site, and her readers were encouraging her to write more.
Since then Sherri has published several novels, many of which have hit the top 100 in their category on Amazon. Writing has become a creative outlet that allows her to explore a wide range of emotions, while having fun taking her characters through all the twists and turns she can create. You can find a current list of all of Sherriâs books and sign up for her monthly newsletter at www.sherrihayesauthor.com.
