They're finally together.
But the Universe seems intent on tearing them apart…
Rory Clarke might not be
Lucah Blythe's boss anymore, but that doesn't mean they can sneak off to the
boardroom for hot sex whenever they want. Keeping their hands off each other in
the workplace is harder than they could have imagined, and that's not the only
obstacle they have to deal with. Between Lucah's troublesome brother Ryder, and
Rory's bff Sloane's inability to understand locked doors, they're drowning in
But it's only about to get
a lot worse when a blast from Lucah's past surfaces, and chaos at Clarke
Enterprises threatens to take away everything Rory has worked so hard for. Can
the couple weather the storm and surrender to each other, or will the challenges
of staying together destroy their relationship for good?

“You wouldn’t be speaking of my last
assistant, would you?”
“Maybe. Maybe I’m talking about something
completely different. My turn.” I faced him and squeezed some shampoo in my
hand. He’d started using my shampoo because he said it gave his hair good
volume, but I knew it was because it smelled like me. I scrubbed my fingers
through his hair, being careful not to get any in his eyes.
“There are actually a few women who made
the cut and one who’s our age, which could be kind of fun.”
“Oh really? I’d be shocked if they picked
her, unless she’s super hot.” I made a disgusted sound.
“You men. Always thinking with your dicks.”
“Why do you think they call men who are
jerks, dicks? For that very reason.” I’d never thought of it that way.
“You’re smart sometimes.”
“You’re smart and sexy all the time.” I
used the shampoo to turn his hair into a mohawk before I made him tilt his head
back so I could rinse his hair out.
When we finally made it out the door, we
grabbed a cab and stopped at a bakery near work. I didn’t know what Lilia might
like, so I did the same thing Lucah had done on our first day. Got her one of
“You’re sweet,” Lucah said when he realized
what I was doing.
“No, I’m really not. I am a cold and
calculating businesswoman. Don’t you think anything otherwise,” I said,
pointing my finger at him and giving him my best glare.
