A standalone erotica/adult romance fiction.
What do you do when the man you love leaves, and the only man you’ve wanted since is the one you can’t have?
When Emma’s first love walked away after learning she was pregnant, she was forced to pick up the pieces, re-evaluate her priorities, and change the course of her dreams all for the sake of her son, who became the only one who mattered.
It also meant taking a job with Jack McMillan; powerful, sexy, controlled, and CEO of McMillan Holdings. Emma has spent the last several years keeping her dreams and fantasies of Jack to herself, but one night, and one encounter, changed everything.
Once the walls between them are dropped and the truth is laid bare, will Jack and Emma’s new relationship be able to survive? When they are forced to confront their pasts, will they learn to finally put their trust in someone else, or will the lies that are told destroy them both?
"Are we going to Mr. Jack’s now?" Logan asked when we reached the living room.
I shook my head. "Just for dinner."
He frowned and I was instantly annoyed that Jack had got my little boy’s hopes up. But I was even more shocked when he answered Logan.
"Another time, little man. We can play Paper Mario tonight, though." I stumbled over my feet when Jack said it, spoken with such conviction and promise.
I turned to him and whispered harshly, "Stop getting his hopes up."
His eyes darkened in anger and I wondered what in the world he had to be angry about. I didn’t have time to be dealing with someone, even Jack freaking McMillan, making promises to my kid, only to let him down in the future.
"I’m not." He spit the words out so forcefully, leaving me knowing that he fully intended to have Logan at his house. And what…with me? How long did he expect this little charade of ours to last?
My confusion from earlier bubbled to the surface all over again. My stomach tightened into a thousand different knots. This was going to be a really bad idea.
About the author...
I am a wife, a mom, and a writer. I can often be found curled up on the couch with a good book, or obsessively eating Skittles in a very complicated and organized manner. No joke.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. At first I was afraid that it was another 50 Shades knock off… so my expectations were not high to begin with. This author just blew me away! I loved the story line of single mom Emma falling in love with her extremely wealthy boss. The coolest thing about it, in my opinion, was the fact that he was there from the very beginning and loved Logan just as much as he loved Emma. Jack is willing to go to great lengths to protect Emma… even at the expense of their relationship.
I also really enjoyed the addition of Dean… wish we could have more of him!! Then comes the introduction of Marcus (Logan’s dad). I was pleasantly surprised at how well developed his character was. It would have been easy to just have him be the rich dick that dumped his pregnant girlfriend… but she went in another direction entirely. I was (almost) rooting for ?*SPOILER*? for Emma but in the end, I think I liked it better the way it is!
Definitely looking forward to more from Stacey Lynn!
