Blackmailed By The Hero (Gone Hollywood #2) by Julie Particka

The wrong bed. The wrong guy. 

Party planner Vicky Stone is on a post-divorce mission. Not only does she intend to land her dream promotion, she's going to indulge in a night of hot hook-up sex. Preferably with the hunky actor she just met at a work function, no-fraternization rules be damned. Fortunately, his drunken directions included a right that should have been a left, landing her in bed with her brother's extra-hot, extra-off-limits best friend instead of the unemployment line.

And, oh, he feels good. Too good.

Bad boy Dante Palladino's forbidden fantasies are about to come true...until Vicky realizes who she's feeling up. And to find out she risked her job for sex with some loser? Not on his watch. Dante throws down the ultimate, albeit self-serving, blackmail. Vicky will date him-and only him-and her secret will be safe. But Vicky swore never to fall for another guy who could break her heart...and Dante's on course to do just that.

My review:
Dante Palladino is her brother’s best friend.  Her brother warned her away from him and despite the attraction she heeded the warning.   Vicky Stone has a plan. The divorce has been over for a while but Vickie has goals and doesn’t need a man to mess things up. But she hasn’t had sex since the divorce and her bff goads Vickie into agreeing to a post-divorce hot hook-up. When a hot actor makes a pass at Vicky she agrees to come back after work and hook up. She finds her way back but enters Dante’s room by mistake. Dante has always wanted Vicky but she was engaged and then married.  She is free now and about to make a terrible error if she goes to the actors bed. Dante blackmails her into dating only him for the duration of his stay.  If the attraction is mutual so much the better.
Dante is big bad and tattooed. He is dreamy and a really good guy. Vicky senses this about him but she remembers her brothers warning and he knows Dante better. She is so conflicted. It was great fun watching Vicky overcome her fears to fall for Dante. This is the second in a series but can be read stand alone.
