About Back For More
Summer in the city…
She’s smart, hot, and funny. My dream girl. There’s just one problem. She’s also my best bud’s little sister. The sparks have always been there, but law school had to come first. Now, we’re all back in the city and the same sparks fly every time I run into her.
She needs a job and I need an assistant at the law firm. What could go wrong?
I don’t know if I can hide my feelings any longer.
I know I shouldn’t go there, but I can’t help it.
My brother’s back in town, and I offer to share my awesome apartment. Imagine my surprise when his best friend Kurt walks in.
He’s still tall, dark, and handsome, and I can’t deny the pull.
Working together only complicates things. Long days and nights in the office can be dangerous.
When we’re not at the office, he’s always hanging around my apartment. To see my brother. Yeah, right.
All I know is, summer in the city is about to get a lot hotter.
After all, 425 Madison Avenue is the perfect place to fall in love.
*Each story is completely standalone.
Welcome to my stop on the tour for the latest in the 425 Madison Series, Back for More. 425 Madison resident Corina has welcomed her big brother into her apartment after a roommate bailed on her with no notice, which is helpful because she is currently unemployed. But when her brother Liam says he’s having a friend over to watch a game, the last person she suspects to see is Kurt – her brother’s best friend from childhood and Corina’s long-time crush. At first, she hopes to avoid him and finally get over her silly crush, but then, he not only offers her a job but seems to be popping up everywhere – making it impossible to get over him.
I’ve absolutely loved some of the installments in this series and some have been just o.k. for me. Luckily, I thought this one was fantastic, even after reading it twice! Kurt was the perfect blend of sexy, sweet, and successful while Corina was the seemingly sweet sister with a major sexy side to her.
The main premise of the book is that Kurt and Corina like each other, have crazy chemistry together, but fear her brother Liam’s reaction to them being together. I find it odd that this is such a common plot in books, the plight of two people wanting to be together but can’t because of a best friend being the brother or sister of the love interest, but it does add some drama for sure.
Other than the brother issue, there wasn’t a lot of conflict or deep layers to the plot, but this was certainly an entertaining read. Author Sylvia Kane made me totally fall for Kurt, and his big moment towards the end was amazing. It was impossible not to root for them and hope that they found their HEA.
Back for More is a fun, quick read that is a wonderful addition to this series!

“I’m here for Corina Davies in 1205,” I respond, my nerves rattling even louder than five minutes ago when I was seized with the instinct to see her.
“Is she expecting you?” he asks, resting his hand on the phone.
I shake my head. The guy must think I’m a weirdo for just showing up like this. He’s going to call her for sure.
Sure enough, he picks up the phone. “Ms. Davies, you have a visitor,” he says, and then looks back at me. “Your name?”
I almost turn around to walk back out into the night, but I stay rooted to the spot. “Kurt. Kurt Owens.”
“Kurt Owens. Thanks.” He turns to me again and nods. “Go ahead. Have a good evening.”
I head for the elevator, and my heart rate rises with each step. She’s gonna think I’m fucking nuts for showing up like this at midnight. And why am I doing this again? What do I hope to achieve by interrupting whatever relaxing activity she’s enjoying at this time of night? I don’t know, but the thought of seeing her makes my palms sweat. I remember that skirt she wore, and how soft her legs looked. My cock twitches at the memory of her silky-smooth legs. Fuck. Down, boy. We’re not here for that.
I step into the elevator and before I know it, I’m standing in front of her door, my hand in the air. What am I going to tell her? What’s my excuse for showing up here so late? At the very least, I have to admit it to myself—I just want to see her. I have to see her. There’s no denying the spark that flew between us the other night. All those years hadn’t done a damn thing to kill our chemistry.
It sure is ballsy to just show up here. Maybe I’ve had a bit much to drink, but I’m not drunk. I’m not slurring or falling over myself. She won’t notice.
Finally, I knock. She’s expecting me, because she opens up right away. Seeing her knocks the wind out of me. Her hair rests over her shoulders in this sexy, yet natural way; she has a hint of makeup, but not much. She doesn’t need any. She’s still a natural beauty, just like she was all those years ago.
A light pink, silk robe clings to her body and ends just above the knees. She ties up the belt, very tight, as if afraid it might slip off any minute. Or that I might see what’s underneath. I try to push the thought from my head.
“Hi,” I say, hoping I don’t look as awkward as I feel. I’m standing in her doorway, without any good reason whatsoever, like a doofus. She’d be perfectly justified in turning me away with some excuse about going to sleep or whatever. But, she doesn’t.
She stands back to let me in.
I love the way my name sounds on her lips. Her lush, rosy lips. So smooth and kissable.
