FROM THE MOMENT HE SAW HER, HE WANTED HER.
THE ONLY PROBLEM WAS, SO DID SOMEONE ELSE.
I’ve spent the last eight years working hard for the position I hold in our company, leaving little time to focus on play, but all of that is about to change.
Wearing a tray full of spilled coffee isn’t how I imagined I’d ever run into someone like Hazel and now, she’s all I think about. She has a quick wit and an innocent heart and I’m instantly intrigued.
She thinks I’m playing around but I’m going for keeps and I’m not the only one. Something isn’t right and every step we take forward is met with a step back.
Someone is trying to sabotage our connection and I need to get to the bottom of it before I lose her forever.
After high school, my life went on without me while I lost almost everything I held dear.
I put my future on hold to help my mother care for my dying father and watched, helplessly, as he lost his business then his home to those with deeper pockets than his, before he lost his life.
Now, I am working hard to get back on track and help my mom build ourselves up to a comfortable life when I bump into a mysterious stranger—literally. Our first meeting is a disaster and he ends up leaving me with more questions than answers when he only offers me his first initial—N.
I should focus on my classes. I should search for stability. I can’t afford to play games with my second shot at having a life. The lessons of my past are screaming at me to walk away.
So why can’t I?
