I'm pretending I'm in love with my best friend. What could possibly go wrong?
Leighton is my best friend. My subordinate.
That's the story we're selling. To our co-workers. To our friends. To everyone who's anticipating the breakdown of the year at my ex's wedding. It's a terrible idea. This ruse is going to f--k sh-t up. Losing her is out of the question.
Touching her is all kinds of wrong.
And right deep in my bones.
Then Leighton slides her hands into my hair and presses her berry lips to mine.
And all that wrong fades to right.
I stop pretending.
I forget the woman who broke my heart. I forget our rules. I forget I'll be lost without her.
I kiss her back like I'll never get enough.
But I can't risk losing my best friend.
Even if she's the woman who might finally unlock my heart.
