I am not the type of girl to sleep around, so it is a shock when I come face to face with my one and only one-night stand on my first day at my new job as a junior associate at one of Manhattan’s biggest law firms. It turns out that my one-night stand has a reputation as a player and is one of the biggest commitment-phobes on the island. Not to mention the fact that he only has to snap his fingers and women fall at his feet. Can I forget about the sexiest night of my life and keep my professional mask in place? This is just the start of my problems in dealing with the complex office politics and my exploding passion for James.
My job as a junior associate at one of Manhattan’s largest law firms couldn’t be going better. It’s my personal life that keeps me off balance. I thought James and I were off to a fresh start, but he continues to blow hot one moment and cold the next. James works closely with another senior associate from the firm. Seeing them working closely together every day makes my doubts grow. What is really going on between them? Is he worth it? Maybe I should give my summer fling Davis another chance, or were things that bad with my ex-boyfriend Brad? He says he wants me back. Can I resist the seductive allure of James McAllister, or am I just kidding myself?
James comes from wealth, a lot of wealth. I don’t know if I can fit into his world. His family hates me because I am not one of them. It is not only his family. My brother still blames James for his girlfriend’s death. The arson in my office remains unsolved, and I am beginning to receive other threats. Are they from one of the women obsessed with James or could it be someone else?
I understand that James wants to protect me and keep me safe, but he goes about it the wrong way. I can’t live a life where the man I love shuts me out. I long for James to share his problems with me so that we can work together as a team. Will he ever learn that he can trust me?
