Taking chances isn’t a new concept to me, but I’ve never been one to take a chance on love. Michael changes all of that. No more party girl, no more one-night stands. I fall hard for the cerulean-eyed sex god who shows me what it’s like to truly be cherished and loved.
Only, I’m not sure how long it can last.
I knew the moment I met Dee that she was trouble. But when she unexpectedly opens up to me the night we meet, I realize she’s the only person who could change how I think about relationships, how I feel, and how I look at life. She’s a fiery, spontaneous woman who challenges me at every turn. I should let her go. But I don’t think I want to.
But right now my career won’t allow me to be the kind of man she deserves.
And Dee doesn’t trust herself or my love for her.
If I’m going to keep her, I have to let her walk away, as much as it pains me to my core.
Yes, it sounds crazy and it might just backfire, but if my plan pays off, we’ll both stop running and finally realize how much we need each other, how our hearts were made for each other.
