My name is Roman Cavenaugh and I’m kind of an asshole.
Running a company isn't easy, especially when everyone expects you to fail, so being a jerk? It comes with the territory.
I don't have time to mess around, and I sure as hell didn’t see her coming.
Cara Hamilton—she was supposed to be off limits…a temporary employee brought in during my assistant’s maternity leave.
But, in the blink of an eye, she became so much more.
An obsession I couldn’t shake.
So yeah, I may be an asshole, but now, I finally had a purpose, and soon, she would be mine.
All’s fair in love and war…
That was how long it’d been since Bethany left.
It’d been fourteen days since she took over and my brain officially stopped working.
My productivity level had since reached an all-time low, and even though I’d managed to see Jo a record-breaking number of times over the last few days, I couldn’t seem to block out the sound of her voice as it bled through the thin wall that separated us.
I’d gone nearly nine months without noticing my previous assistant was even pregnant, and now, I couldn’t go an hour without breaking the tip off my pencil every time she answered the phone or laughed.
Was she talking to her boyfriend?
Shut up, Roman.
