Aidan Winters. Gorgeous, brilliant, ruthless, and filthy rich. He’s known as the Man in Black, because New York’s most sought-after bachelor is icy perfection in an all-black suit.
As his executive assistant, I know his suit size, the security code to his penthouse, and the number to his private line. The only thing I don’t know is what would make him fall to his knees for a woman.
And then, one night, I discover Aidan’s sexy secret. And he discovers mine.
Now we play a very dirty game. By day, we’re all business. But by night… he’s not Aidan and I’m not me.
No emotions. No lies. Except for one.
If you think this is a story about a girl who hates her boss, think again.
But now my marriage is over, I'm burned out on my business, and worst of all, I never got the baby I wanted. And now I never will.
Unless Dex is willing to make a deal.
I get a baby; he gets... me. For a little while. Once I'm knocked up, we'll go our separate ways. That's the rule.
I've never broken a rule. Dex has broken all of them.
Which rule will we break first?
It was supposed to be simple: Let Jace Riggs walk into my counseling office, tell me how he’s adjusting to post-prison life, and let him walk out again. But the first thing I've learned is that nothing is simple with Jace.
He’s tall, muscled, bearded and tatted. He’s smarter than anyone else in the room and ten times more guarded. He’s hiding things that would break any other man to pieces. He’s a loner, a bad boy, and an infamous Riggs brother from the wrong side of the tracks.
He’s a hundred kinds of wrong for me. And even when I’m not his counsellor anymore, I still want to break down his defenses.
Jace has never trusted anyone - until me. He says I’m the only woman he wants close to him. The only woman he’s wanted in his bed - ever. And when he looks at me with that look of white-hot fire, I believe everything he says.
My own secrets could get Jace sent back to prison - or get him killed. And he doesn’t care.
We had so little time. We might not have until morning. But with the fire ignited between Jace and me, forever wouldn’t be long enough…
It isn’t so easy. I dress more like a biker than a lawyer, and I have friends in low places. As for women, ten years ago the divorce from hell left me scarred - I live alone, I sleep alone. Trust me, it’s for the good of womankind.
Then Charlotte showed up on my doorstep. Willing to work as my assistant to pay off her brother’s legal bill. Beautiful and determined, even against the men trying to hurt her. She tells me I drive her crazy. She drives me crazy right back.
I hired her.
I watched her turn my life upside down.
I saved her.
I knocked her up.
And then I fell for her.
They say a a bad boy can’t be a good man. But they’ve never met me. And they don’t know how determined I can be.
