Fall in love with his best friend’s sister? Danny Tortelli took care of that years ago.
Protecting and caring for her became his sole purpose the day her life was rocked to the core. His ultimate goal was to show her how a real man loved a woman. He only had to bide his time.A guy like Danny didn’t give up on what he wanted, and what he wanted was Elle.
 
Unforgettable Damage
 
Fall in love with her brother’s best friend? Elle Stratton had buried her love for Danny for years. Damaged by her decisions and scarred by the baggage of her past, she believed she didn’t deserve him. Self doubt blinded her to how he felt. After all, he’d seen her at her ultimate worst and witnessed the disaster of her life as it unfolded. Why would he want her?
 
Unimaginable Desire
 
He refused to wait any longer to prove a future with him was more than a possibility.
She was stuck in events of the past. His hardest task was peeling back the layers of her self-preservation. Her biggest challenge was accepting someone could love her.
Their time had come, and no one would stand in his way.
 
Can be read as a standalone.

Excerpt
As we raced to the hotel, my heart pumped as fast as my legs. The cold air provided little relief for the heat rushing through my body. Inside the lift, Danny pinned me against the back wall. His hands braced my face, and his erection dug into my hip.
 
“There’s nothing in this world I want more than to sink deep inside you and finally claim you as mine.”
 
Before I could respond, he pecked me on the cheek and moved as far away as possible. “Then why are you all the way over there?” I closed the space between us, stretched on my tip toes, and rubbed my nose across his cheek.
 
 
“There’s no way I’m taking you in an elevator with security cameras recording your first of millions of orgasms with me. Those are for me and me alone.”

This second book in The Rub Down series is the perfect mix of sweet and spicy in this fantastic friends to lovers story!

Elle and Danny have been friends for years.  Danny has seen Elle at her lowest point and never wavered in his loyalty to Elle.  Somehow during this lowest of lows for Elle, they both fell in love with each other but neither realized how the other felt…until now.  Danny has finally decided that it is time to claim Elle as his.  He has given her time for old wounds to heal and he is tired of being in the friend zone.

Will these longtime friends be able to build something lasting as a couple?

This is a beautiful story!! There are some serious issues dealt with during this story as well as some light hearted fun and I loved it all! Danny and Elle are fantastic together and I fell in love with them as well.  The secondary characters in this story are funny and so supportive of each other and I can’t wait for the others’ stories!! Gina Sheldon has done a fabulous job writing about subjects that are relevant and characters that are well-rounded and amazing! I am truly a fan of hers and recommend this series to everyone!

Author Interview
Q: Talk to me about your cover! Who designed it? 
A: I did! I do all my own covers actually. And the photographer is my sister-in-law. And the models are just some people we know! Neither are professional models and that is one of my most favorite things about all of my covers. I joke because the guy on the cover is my best friend’s brother and she loves my books. I was afraid putting him on the cover would lose me a fan! LOL. But she says she’s still 100% reading it and just planning to visualize her own Hayden and most certainly not her brother! HA! 
 
Q: Who is Hayden? 
A: Hayden Clarke…sigh. I think I fell in love with him more than I thought possible during the process of writing this book. Hayden was sort of the broken anti-hero of my last release, Not The One. And he’s by far my most requested book to date. The hype for his story has been intense. Readers need his HEA and I seriously can barely speak of the story to them without squealing. He’s wormed his way into my heart and I hope I did this magnificent man justice or my readers will have my hide!  
 
Q: What can you tell us about That One Moment? 
A: Well, the story starts exactly one year after a pretty intense day for Hayden in Not The One, so I really dig where he’s at mentally throughout the whole book. He’s still dealing with a lot of what he went through, but you get glimpses of some normalcy for him, so you get to know the TRUE Hayden…who is hot…and a bit of a freak between the sheets! ☺ 
 
Q: Is it a sexy romance? 
A: Yes, but it’s a slow burn, which is different for me…but it had to be for Hayden. He needs to take his time and not rush into anything or it wouldn’t be believe or smart. 
 
Q: Okay, be honest…you’re known for feeding on the tears of your readers. How many boxes of tissues should they have on hand? 
A: A lot. LOL. I mean…I don’t know how they expect me to write Hayden’s story without some emotion. But I think they’ll be surprised at how much they smile too. Hayden isn’t all dark and gloomy. He’s sexy and funny and all man. This won’t just be a cry-fest. I promise! 
 
Q: Can That One Moment be read as a standalone? 
A: Yes! I’m happy to tell you, yes. It has been tested and approved. There’s no cliffy. It’s solid on it’s own. Though I do think readers will enjoy it more if they read Not The One first. And Not The One is officially book 1 in my Lost in London Series with That One Moment being book 2. If they really want more backstory on some secondary characters, they should check out my London Lovers Series too. I love my little London family over there! 
 
Q: What’s next? 
A: More books! I have some secret projects I’m working on. One is another series entirely and another is the third book to the Lost in London Series that I can’t tell you about yet! ☺ 
 
Q: Is it Frank? It has to be the fantastic gay ginger’s turn for a story, right? 
A: It’s not Frank…not yet. I’m not closing the door on that bloke, but he’s gotta be patient. Saving the best for last!  
 
Q: Why oh why are you releasing one week early on iBooks and torturing all of us Kindle readers? 
A: LOL! I’m sorry! I have a great iBooks family over there and they are wonderful to work with. I will have preorder links for all retailers up soon though, I promise. 
 
Q: Okay fine…I’ll just be patient then. Thanks for stopping by. 
A: Thanks for having me!!!
