My addendum: I’m not doing that
His promise: Before the year is up, you’ll beg for it
My days of lying and stealing are over, but then Nicholas Crawford makes me an offer I can’t refuse. Spend a year pretending to be his significant other in exchange for $1 million dollars.
I tried to put that part of my life, and those hard-won skills, behind me. But I need the money. He needs a partner.
I told him that I’d never sleep with him. He promised me that I would end up begging for it. Now, I want him more than ever.
Especially when I run my fingers over his chiseled body and he teases me with his tongue.
Especially when he puts his hands on the small of my back and kisses me.
I want him so much I am going to scream. I want him so much…I might even beg.
