TheFifthDay Cover


Justin Haas and Alyse Mosell have been best friends since they were ten years old, and more than a decade later not much has changed. After a bitter break up with her fiancĂ©, Alyse moves in with Justin to mend her life and her broken heart. But, one night of drinking and harmless flirting soon morphs into a passion that’s been simmering under the surface for years. One of them is willing to take a chance on romance; the other is trying to take their heart and run. And it will take nothing short of a Christmas miracle to keep their friendship – and what could be love – from falling apart around them.

About the Author

Kaia Bennett
Kaia Bennett is a native of New Jersey, a college graduate and U.S. Army veteran who loves music, movies, astrology, tattoos, martial arts, animals and, of course, the written word. She heard the siren call of the writer as a teenage girl, but took her sweet time answering it until she had lived and loved enough to share her work with the masses.
She is an erotic author who loves to write stories with diversity, depth, realism and viscerally hot encounters that flirt shamelessly with the taboo. A lover of all genres and a voracious reader, she aims to write stories that are transformative for her characters and readers alike.
They were close and Justin had never crossed that line of friendship with her. But, that didn’t mean she didn’t see the way he looked at her. Curiosity was just under the surface of his eyes when they glanced over her body every so often. The moments when he looked at her like that were emblazoned in her memory, just like that first kiss. 
His eyes on her body when he came to pick her up for a night out; his hands on her thigh when he leaned over to get something in the backseat of his car, his fingers grazing her skin for longer than necessary. The times when they were leaning over the railing of the pier and she felt him leaning in closer to her, or the way he couldn’t close his mouth when he saw her in her prom dress. And then there was the way he’d given the subtle, dirty eyeball to any guy she dated, the same look he’d given Chris the first time he met him. She wasn’t blind. She’d just chosen not to see. 
Until now.

Take one mildly self-loathing woman (thanks to her ex and the way he looks at her the next time he sees her after their breakup), toss in a best friend who wants to cheer her up, sprinkle with a dash of alcohol, mix in some bottled up feelings and emotions,and bake until done.

Okay, so all silliness aside, that really is the basic premise of The Fifth Day. Alyse is a woman who isn't quite sure what she wants. Justin is a guy who seems to breeze through every aspect of life. The pair live together and make things work with their friendship. Until one fateful night.

Justin, hating that Alyse is so down, invites her out with a couple of other friends. She accepts, they go out drinking, and that's when everything starts to change between the pair. Will one night of passion ruin everything? Can their newly discovered feelings for one another turn into something special? Will it be a Christmas miracle after all?
