Enemies turn to lovers in this bad boy billionaire romance with a twist.
I had a plan.
Finish law school. Start a job. Stay away from men like Brandon Sterling.
Cocky, overbearing, and richer than the Earth, he thinks the world belongs to him, and that includes me.
Yeah, no. Think again.
It doesn’t matter that his blue eyes look straight into my soul, or that his touch melts my icy reserve. It doesn’t even matter that past all that swagger, there’s a beautiful, damaged man who has so much to offer beyond private planes and jewelry boxes.
But I had a plan: no falling in love.
I just have to convince myself.
What’s the point of falling in love if it only breaks your heart?
I should be flying high. I’ve graduated from the best law school in the world, and I’m ready to start my career. So why do I feel like I’m holding the world on my shoulders instead of standing on top of it?
Oh, right. Him.
Bad boy. Billionaire. Larger-than-life Brandon Sterling.
In a few short months, he became the sun to my universe, only to flip it upside down and inside out, leaving me to make the biggest decision of my life alone.
I don’t want to miss him like I do. I don’t want to love him like I do.
So the question is, when he comes back––if he comes back––will he forgive me for what I’ve done?
I know betrayal.
I know that deep stab when those closest deceive your fragile trust. I know what it's like when your secrets cost you everything––including the love of your life.
Scared and alone, there's no reason to believe in my rescue. Not when I can still see the love of my life as I smashed his heart to pieces.
Brandon Sterling spent fifteen years desperately trying to reinvent himself: as a lawyer, a businessman, and now a candidate for public office.
But as these daily stressors mount alongside a dangerous threat, someone else emerges: a ruthless hoodlum who'd rather use fists than brains to solve his problems.
Even if I can get out of my prison, can I escape the cage created by my guilt? And if Brandon moves past my deceit, will I still want the man he's become in order to protect me?
