Release Date: September 15, 2015Summary:
Reed Prescott’s life is complicated enough before a silly little girl in outrageous high heels bites it in front of his moving vehicle. With no other choice, he forces her out of the pouring rain and inside his car. His concern isn’t necessarily with her safety, but to ward off any potential lawsuit.
Lara Hunter’s life is headed in the right direction. With a good education, a great new job, and her dear best friend, Kade, by her side, nothing can get in her way until a freak rain storm leaves her sprawled across the road in the middle of a busy intersection during rush hour traffic. When the gorgeous man in the business suit and too expensive car takes her back to his office, she’s not entirely sure she appreciates his high-handed helpfulness.
When Reed's assistant finishes with Lara, he finds his entire world rocked by the captivating beauty underneath that soggy exterior. From day one, Reed's success in business has always been fueled by a deep, unbreakable hate for his grandfather. So when the potential for love stands in front of him, can this hardened man find a way to chase his own happiness?
After a second more, with the motivation of persistent banging, she went for the door, looked through the peep hole and froze. Reed. She ducked, like he would be able to see her looking out. Why was he here? She looked back through the hole, and his face was downcast, focused on the floor until his eyes shifted to the hole on the other side of the door. He was looking straight at her. She dropped down again.
“I hear you in there. Just open the door.”
She turned her back to the door and rolled her eyes. She wasn’t ready to see him. Her resolve was firm, but she needed time to gather her wits.
“I’m not dressed,” she finally yelled back.
“At this point, I don’t think that matters. Open the door, Lara.” Reed spoke clearly, but quietly.
“It’s not a good time for me,” she tried again.
“Open the door.” He wasn’t giving, and of course, her neighbor upstairs began banging on the floor. Her eyes shot up to the ceiling. God, she didn’t want to do this. She waited, completely panicked. When no sound came from behind the door, she prayed he’d left, and she slowly lifted to look back out the peep hole. Reed stood there, staring at the door.
