Jack Landson is off-limits. He’s my brother’s best friend and completely unobtainable. I can fantasize about him all I want, but he barely notices me at all.
I accepted this fact long ago in high school. He would never be anything more than a family friend. Who wanted a real-life romance anyway, when you could live vicariously through romance novels instead?
Well, I did…I decided. I was so tired of being the invisible bookworm. Jack wasn’t the only one who didn’t notice me. My own siblings looked me right over in our work together at the family company. How ironic…to be the last single one left in the family business. Especially when our family business was in matchmaking.
I was determined to change my life, inside and out. It started out as me trying to get ahead at work. But I accidentally caught the attention of Jack in a way that spanned far beyond the board room.
I never expected to get that one sexy night in bed with him. And once I had it, I wasn’t about to get my hopes up that it’d ever be anything more. But the funny thing about expectations is that sometimes, they’re wrong.
By changing myself and luring Jack in, will I end up changing him from the inside out too? Or will I be sent crawling back into my safe shell, lost in my world of books?
