A no-strings-attached adventure with the most gorgeous man I’ve ever seen—this was my alcohol-slash-lust-fueled proposal, and given before I could consider the potential ramifications.
While his looks alone are enough to make a girl swoon, it’s the rest of him—a perfect balance of mysterious, sweet, and effortlessly charming—that draws me in. Through his cryptic comments and half-answers, he’s quickly become an enigma I’m determined to solve.
One way or another, this adventure promises to snap the stagnant, lackluster pattern my love life has been locked in lately.
Is it naïve and a little reckless to think this won’t blow up in my face? Probably.
But the bigger question is the only one I need to answer…
Is the chance to soar among the stars worth the risk of being burned when the sun eventually rises?
Love is a mistake I won’t make again.
My rules are simple. Keep things surface-deep. Don’t make plans. And never, ever get attached.
One look at her is all it takes for me to break my first rule.
One conversation with her is all it takes for me to question everything.
Which means accepting her proposal is bound to be a mistake.
She has no idea who I am or what kind of demons I live with, so I tell myself there’s no harm in spending one day with her. But the more I lose myself in her, the more she brings me out of the darkness and into her light, the harder it’ll be to let her go.
When reality comes crashing down on us in the worst way possible, I have to decide between walking away…or risking everything for the woman who breaks all of my rules.
Money and power. With one, you have the other. Add to that a family name. A strong family name and what does it equal? Disaster for some. Even more power for another. When everything you have to live for in threatened by that power, you find yourself torn. Torn between happiness and protecting the ones nearest and dearest to your heart. Even more so, you live for others happiness and will live a sorrowful life to protect your loved ones. Does that make you weak, or does that make you one amazingly selfless person, willing to sacrifice everything for others well beings.
That is what Emmett Sinclair is dealing with. What he has had to deal with his entire life. A powerful, disgusting politician for a father and an evil sadistic so called man for a brother. Always being pit against each other, Emmett and Will never really had a chance to bond as brothers. As twin brothers. When fate brought a heart broken Jade Preston to Emmett, he knew that he could never be happy and gave her 24 hours to be worshipped by him. 24 hours and nothing more, nothing less. Jade didn’t want more, she wasn’t looking for anything serious. She was building her wedding planning empire ... Forget Me Knot and she just didn’t have the time nor the energy to put into a relationship. Twenty-Four hours would be enough. It would be all she needed ... or will it?
