“With just two simple words, Chari Atwood storms back into my life.
Beautiful. Irresistible. The woman standing before me is not the girl I knew growing up.
And I’m not the same hopeful kid everyone thought was going nowhere fast.
Nowadays, I’m a hero. A celebrity. A man who isn’t content with the billions in his bank account.
Call me ambitious if you want. I have my sights set on the rest of the world, and don’t have time for a relationship, including the one woman who still has the power to bring me to my knees.
I will not break.
I will not succumb.
Except that I’m used to getting exactly what I want, and after one chance encounter, it’s clear that what I want is Chari Atwood. . .
Even if she is my best friend’s little sister.
“And I don’t plan to be gentle. Not with your shirt—” I remind her, one last time.“—or with you.”
“You’re huge,” I blurt before I get control of my mouth. I blame the orgasm.”
“I will not break. I will not succumb.”
“I don’t have time for a relationship, including with the one woman who still has the power to bring me to my knees.”
“Something passes between us. Not the unchecked lust that’s hung over us all day. This is different. Deeper. More dangerous.”
“All night I’m like a kid turning the crank on a jack-in-the-box, waiting for something to happen. Anticipating it.”
