After her harrowing adventure under the sea, Lexie's feeling cautious. She finishes the vacation on a high note and returns home, to the arms of an old flame. They get each other's temperature rising, but he has a surprise, and it's not something Lexie wants. At least not yet. Lexie is drawn back to Mr. Luthor Thorne, and they meet "as friends" for lunch. Where is this going? Upstairs? To the penthouse suite? The one with a piano?
Mr. Thorne's been talking to Lexie's best friend, and now there are plane tickets booked for Friday. Lexie buys some special underwear for the trip, but that's not all she's bringing. She's got her best friends in tow with her, and they're all going diving, under the sea. The resort is halfway around the world, and despite having the time of her life, Lexie finds herself thinking about someone back home.
Professional organizer Lexie Ross refuses to take Mr. Thorne's call, so he invites her to dinner. They meet in a private room, in complete darkness, because the restaurant's theme is dining in the dark. It's supposed to be a sensual experience, all about the food. All about the senses. The appetizers haven't even arrived, and already Mr. Thorne is making some rather forceful demands.
The new feel-good, full-length novel from Mimi Strong, author of Borrowed Billionaire and Her Teddy Bear. I should have known by the tattoos that Sawyer was trouble. My mother always said to stay away from boys with ink, but she ignored her own advice. She also abandoned me and my little sister. Life's been hard for the two of us, on the run and on our own, but I just turned twenty-one and started working at a bar in a new city. I wear a fake wedding band and a veil of lies. My gold ring didn't stop Sawyer. He looked into me with his heavenly green eyes, and I nearly forgot my pretty lies. Now he wants to help me get my life together. I should stay away, because he could blow my cover. When we get found--and I know one day we will--I want my sister to be old enough to handle the truth about our past. I may be hanging out with Sawyer, but we're definitely not dating. I swear, he's not setting me on fire with every glance or casual touch. We're just friends. I'm not thinking about him wrapping those tattooed arms around me, every second of every day.
