Ronnie Childs has questions.
What if sheâd said âyesâ to Matthew Carling that day?
Why does he now hate her with a chilling iciness that numbs her bones and makes her heart ache?
Is it possible to still be the same as you once were when everything has changed so much?
How can they work together to save their companies when they canât even hold a civil conversation?
So many questions and so little time to discover the answers.
Once Ronnie and Matthew were best friends, but time has moved on and those memories are now locked in the shadow of the past. Things would be so different if they were young, but sometimes the answers to life's challenges aren't always as straightforward as they seem.
Fifteen years have passed by in a blink.
Will fifteen days be enough to make things right?

âWeâve never kissed.â
Oh God. My stomach plummeted with the minor chords. âNo.â
âAnd physically we donât know if we are even compatible.â His gaze swept over me. âI mean, youâre a wee lass.â
âWee lass! Donât youâ¦â
âBut.â His gaze intensified. Heaven crashed to earth and obliterated us.
âBut?â Shaky and wanton, I warmed on the inside like a chocolate fondue.
âSince Iâve known you, itâs been the most natural thing to hold your hand. From the earliest days even when I knew I shouldnât, I still did it. It felt like nothing and everything all at once.â
I breathed in slow. Lest I might pass out.
âSo I think if holding your hand feels like everything, then what happens if I do this?â
I forced myself to maintain eye contact as, with his free hand, he used a finger to trail up my throat and along the edge of my coat collar. I held in my breath as he then ran it along my cheekbone, around my ear, slipping into my hair.
âYou almost kissed me once.â I stuttered the words, each syllable gushed with the pound of my heart.
âI know.â I could taste his breath, feel the warmth of his mouth hovering just above mine. Sweet Sake and Matthew combined. I wanted to inhale him.
