Interviewing Senate hopeful Donovan Hayes is supposed to be my ticket to the byline. I assume he’s nothing more than a puff piece that looks good in a three-piece suit. I couldn’t have been more wrong.
His touch ignites a passion in me I didn’t know existed. But will being with him destroy my reputation and possibly end my career?
Staying away from family embarrassment and winning this election are my main goals. It’s all going according to plan until I meet Kasey. I can’t help but picture her long legs wrapped around me with her taste on my lips. The fire between us is undeniable. And dangerous.

“What happened and the way I reacted was so out of line. I’m disgusted with myself and the things I said to you. I hate myself every day for ever saying that shit to you. I swear on everything, I didn’t mean them then, and I definitely wouldn’t say them now. I was so wrapped up in what people told me and warned me about my whole life. But I didn’t realize something that day. It was you. I didn’t realize that you are the one person I could trust. You are the one person who meant the most in that situation. You and your sister. Instead of listening to you and being there for you, I listened to the voices in my head telling me I can’t trust anyone. That was the stupidest thing I could have done, and it’s something I regret every single day. I am so sorry, Kasey. More than you can imagine. I know I fucked us up. I know you need time to concentrate on helping your sister. I just thought that you would want to write our story.”
Wow, the man apologizes incredibly well. He says all the right things, everything I wanted to hear that day. The only problem is I don’t know if I’m ready to forgive him.
