Legend has it, the man you kiss at a wedding is the man you’ll marry. In my case, it’s nothing but trouble.
Spencer Carrollton is a dark-haired, hazel-eyed beast.
When I collided with him at my cousin’s wedding, I wasn’t looking for love.
But his naughty eyes flashed, his full lips curled into a knowing smile, and I should have run.
I kissed him instead.
Then he gave me a job when I needed it the most.
I never get involved with clients, but Spencer Carrollton is wickedly handsome in a bespoke suit.
He’s devastatingly sexy out of it.
He’s possessive, demanding, and the best sex I’ve ever had.
He’s an arrogant billionaire, who thinks I’ll fall at his feet, but I’m not going down that road again.
Until he pulls me out of danger and insists I move in with him to be safe.
As the nights pass and we grow closer, I know I’m losing this fight.
Spencer Carrollton always gets what he wants.
The trouble is, he wants me.
(TROUBLE is a STAND-ALONE enemies-to-lovers, billionaire boss romance. No cheating. No cliffhanger.)
Maybe I’m taking advantage of him, doing the things I want to do with him sober while he’s slightly drunk. I don’t care.
I kiss his hand and pretend he’s not an asshole. I pretend he’s my boyfriend, and we fall asleep in our luxury suite with our bodies entwined like this every night, together, safe in each other’s arms.
I exhale a sigh at this ridiculously rich, ridiculously arrogant man. He’s cruel to taunt me with a peek inside his walls, but he’s wrong if he thinks I’m like every other woman he’s ever known.
I do have a brain to match his, and if he thinks he’s got me, he’s so wrong.
Lifting his hand, I press my lips to his knuckles wishing it wasn’t this way. I wish it was easy, but when did easy ever lead anywhere good?
I slide my hand along that mysterious scar he guards so closely. His eyes are closed, and a dark lock has fallen over his brow. His lips are relaxed, and all the anger has momentarily subsided.
“You’re safe with me, you know?” Exhaling a little sigh, I trace the hair off his eye. “No, you don’t know.”
I kiss him softly before closing my eyes and falling fast asleep…
