I left before we could break them, or so I thought I had…
Ella Connolly is looking forward to starting a new adventure in her life. After putting her party girl, headline-grabbing tabloid exploits behind her, she has become a responsible and successful entrepreneur. Moving across the pond to Manhattan, she’s determined to make the dream for her boutique to become an international retail brand come true.
While in the States, her overprotective brother insists she have a full-time security detail. This complicates Ella’s plans in more ways than one.
Alex Robertsen’s life is in shambles. After losing the woman he loves to his brother, he’s been on a steady diet of booze and easy women in an effort to make himself numb. Things needed to change.
Change is good.
Good, that is, until Alex finds himself thrust into an all too familiar situation.
He’s obligated by a professional oath to protect Ella at all costs.
She’s vowed to not let distractions, even the ruggedly handsome ones, keep her from her goals.
But old habits die hard…
We’d broken the rules… more than once.
We were bound to… and we agreed it was worth the risk.
He left before it shattered us both… or so we thought.
