Adair MacLaine was sunshine and the storm. Emerald-green eyes and attitude, I fell for her the moment we met and hated her just as quickly. Five years ago, tragedy brought her to my door and sparked a love that consumed us like wildfire—hot, unpredictable, and impossible to control. We raged together until her father made her choose between me and the family name.
I left. She stayed.
I’m no longer the poor kid that lost her. I’ve made myself into a man that won’t be ignored.
Now her father is dead, the MacLaine empire is crumbling, and Adair’s inheritance depends on the company’s largest investor: me.
My whole life changed the night I met Sterling Ford. Brilliant and intense, he came to Valmont with nothing but a scholarship and a chip on his shoulder. He was a grenade and I wanted to pull the pin.
We were doomed from the first kiss.
I’m not the girl he left behind. I’ve waited for my chance to seize my freedom and it’s finally in reach until the last person I ever wanted to see again walks into my father’s funeral: him.
From New York Times bestselling author Geneva Lee comes the first chapter in an emotional, breathtaking love story that will leave you obsessed and begging for more.
