Escape. That was my sole focus. Forget the headlines, forget the threats. Forget what happened? 


I fled the big city in the desert to hide in a small town amongst the pines. My plan was to blend in, work until I had enough money, then vanish. 

There’s just one problem: I didn't factor in having a boss like Connor Vale. 

He’s quick-witted, sexy as sin, and has a heart the size of Arizona. 

The longer we work together, the more difficult it is to keep him at arms length. 

I know better than to return his smile. I know better than to shudder at the feel of his hand on the small of my back. And I definitely know better than to lean in when we’re working close together. 

Even when I know he wants me to do all those things. 

Falling for him would be easy, if it weren't for one inescapable truth: for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, and nobody around me is safe.

Disappointing. Don’t waste a credit.

Disappointing. The story was very basic, little character development, and a predictable ending. Don’t waste your credit.
