They’re a couple of control freaks, but they can’t control each other.
For years I was forced to live a life I hated, but I broke free, and now own a small real estate business. One that's not doing so hot. In walks the robotic and rich Mr. Petrov in need of a new apartment. He's an answer to my problems, but also a mystery I need to uncover. Even his epic assholery can't dissuade my curiosity.
Michael proves he's no robot. He's so genuine I can't help but fall. As a shadow from my past threatens him and my sister, it's my responsibility to protect them. I take care of my own problems, but when Michael wants to step in, I make one thing clear: white knights need not apply.
I'm ambitious, I'm successful, and I know what I want. I'm also frustratingly unsettled, searching for something I can never find. A place where I can be myself. Where I'll feel at home. My sexy new real estate agent knows what I need before I can say a word. She sees through me.
Adele makes me want to give up control, but trust is a word I've forgotten. How can I give myself over to her when she doesn't tell me anything about her past? How can I trust her? I guess it's a good thing she doesn't take no for an answer.
