He thought he could break me. Well he was f#@king wrong.
I’m done being the weak little girl that men look at and see as someone to take advantage of. It’s time I turned the tables. It’s time I took control of my own goddamned life.
And I’ll start by demanding my pleasure and taking my due. From any and every man I want. But none of them will really ever touch me. I’m a fortress of one.
As much as I want to be done with the past, though, it’s not done with me. The man who tried to break me and the man who wants to heal my fractured places are both back in my life.
Neither will let me move on and before I know it, I’m pulled back into the most dangerous game yet. I’ve learned well enough that there are so many worse things to suffer in this life than a broken heart. When end games are revealed and I understand the part I’m meant to play, will my new-found strength be enough or will I be forced to betray the one I’m just learning how to love?
From the very beginning, I suspected I was making a bargain with the devil. I accepted Bryce Gentry’s position as his personal assistant knowing there was more to the job than answering emails and taking meeting notes. I mean, so what if he likes to watch me do my office work without my shirt on? No big deal. All I care about is making ends meet and taking care of my son. But Gentry seems determined to make me a pawn in his personal vendettas and power plays.
And then there’s Gentry’s handsome former collaborator and current rival: Jackson Vale. Jackson makes me FEEL. He makes me feel alive. Feel sexy. Feel in control and out of control at the same time. He makes me want a future when I can barely manage the day to day.
For a girl like me, it’s dangerous to want. If there’s one thing I’ve learned in this life, it’s to never put my heart on the line.
The stakes of these games are getting too high, too fast. It was just supposed to be a job. But now I’m stuck between two men intent on destroying one another. Will I make it out of this with my heart, soul, and body intact, or will this CRUSH ME?
