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.

What a book that kept me on my toes!
What a book that kept me on my toes! I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book or where it would go, but as I started to read I got hooked and now I am DYING for the next installment to hopefully answer all the questions! Adair grew up wealthy, but she always found herself realistic about the society and lifestyle she lived. Desperate to get out of the restraints of what’s expected from her father, she ends up meeting Sterling, who was at school on a scholarship, and they bicker and clash tremendously. I found myself totally behind Sterling and rooting for his determination to cause a reckoning for those who have wronged him, but also was rooting for Adair to finally break free of the family and the unhappiness she clearly has by following her dreams and leaving. I was also so interested to see what all happened between Sterling and Adair and why she was added to his list, but also where things end up going between them with the plan they’ve created together. With the cliffhanger at the end – I am absolutely dying to see what happens next and understand more behind Sterling and what’s happened to him.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
