Determined to live life on her terms, Jenna Lachlan focused her energy on growing her business all the while flying under the radar, but fate had other plans.
Insert the sexy, assertive, and captivating Cameron Rijker into the fold, and the stakes just got higher. He pushed her buttons, decimated her comfort zone, and made her yearn for a life she long since vowed wasn’t in the cards.
Their attraction was immediate, their chemistry undeniable, and their connection unparalleled. However, beneath the surface remained a secret so big that Jenna would go to any lengths to keep hidden no matter the cost.
The only downside to anonymity was that you could never fully trust anyone but yourself.
“Cameron’s breathing shuddered, and his expression deepened as his gaze fell over me, absorbing what was going through his mind at that moment. “There’s just something about you—”
Cameron stepped closer and cupped my face again with his hands. I could feel the sexual tension radiating between us, equivalent to a stick of dynamite ready to set off fireworks at a moment’s notice. His lips set in a thin line, slowly parting.
“Believe me when I say I’m not going to hurt you, just the opposite. I want to protect you from whatever or whoever you’re hiding or running from.” The sincerity in his words was a laser beam striking a direct hit into my soul as he stared deep into my blue eyes.
I reached up and placed both my hands over his as they covered my cheeks, suddenly feeling very exposed and vulnerable. Struggling to suppress my pending waterworks, I closed my eyes, but not before a few lone tears escaped. Cameron’s thumbs moved quickly to wipe away the wetness while his lips kissed my skin dry.
“No tears. I want to see that beautiful smile again,” he sighed.
I didn’t have any strength left to fight this magnetic pull between us anymore. “I can’t be here anymore. I need some air.” My tone vibrated against my rattled nerves.
“No. I’m not letting you run from me again.” His hands traveled down my body, coming to rest on my hips.
“I promise I won’t run. I’d like for you to take me somewhere else, I don’t care where.”
He exhaled a noticeable sigh of relief, wrapping his fingers through mine and guided me back into the ballroom across the dance floor. His other hand reached inside his suit jacket as he pulled out his phone. Everything happened so fast that before I could react, we were standing in the valet section of the hotel.
