I hate secrets. They ruin people’s lives and end relationships. Too bad I picked a job that’s full of clients with skeletons in their closet. None of that bothers me because I can compartmentalize. Keep the required boundaries intact. Until she shows up on my doorstep.
She’s the one person that can make me forget the rules of the brotherhood. The only person I would even consider doing that for. Problem is, she has one secret that’s a game-changer. And it’s one I’m not sure I can forgive.
I can take care of myself. Or so I thought. I never expected to need his protection again, but that doesn’t change the facts. I do need him, more than I ever have before. But when he finds out my secret, will he still be willing to protect me?
I fell in love with him the first time I met him, and despite walking away and staying gone for four years, my feelings haven’t changed. Nor has the explosive chemistry between us. I’m just not sure he feels the same or if I’m just another client.
