Proving I'm the right man to lead Steele Ventures is all I care about. Then Isabella came into my life. For a comedian, she's got pretty bad timing. Let's just say I'm dealing with a lot in my life right now. A hostile board that's baying for my blood. A father who seems intent on undermining my every move. And a supermodel ex who refuses to accept that it's over between us. Oh, and there's one more thing. Isabella is the niece of Irvine Gray—the CEO of Gray Industries who came within a whisper of destroying my corporate career.
Isabella doesn't belong in my world, and announcing to my family that we're dating will just be adding fuel to the fire. Walking away is the smart decision. But it's not that simple. Not when Isabella is the only thing that seems to make sense any more. And with this firestorm raging around me, all that matters is figuring out a way to be with her.
Braden Steele is the billionaire CEO who laughs at all my jokes. Even the corny ones. And after we slept together I figured he wouldn't call. Which is fine with me. Really. I knew what I was getting myself into. I'm a big girl, and I have no intention of drowning in a puddle of my own tears.
But then he went and asked me to meet his family. But wait . . . it gets better. I scored myself an invite to join his family for a weekend in The Hamptons. Something about this perfect picture isn't right. It's not the way my life works. Now I'm waiting for the punch line, because when you've been the butt of life's jokes as many times as I have, you don't get to believe in fairy tales.
