He can’t trust the people who should have his back…
Pressured by his boss to connect with his new team, the last thing Kaeden O’Shea needs is a woman in the way—one who clearly has something to hide. But his instincts have him on high alert and he can’t shake the idea that he needs to ride to her rescue.
Running, hiding, and planting misleading clues means Joy Wilson doesn’t dare let anyone get close. Not even the man who tempts her at every turn…because there’s too much at stake. Too much she has to protect.
Two missions collide, and all bets are off.
Steamy romance meets heart-stopping suspense in the Sutton Billionaires Series. This is the sixth book in the series but it can be read as a standalone story with no cliffhangers. If you’d rather start at book one, grab The Billionaire Deal by Lori Ryan. This book was previously released as part of the Sutton Capital Series under the name According to Plan.
He ran his hands slowly up and down her back. “Tell me your story, Joy.”
This time, she didn’t stiffen, but she did laugh. And her answer made it abundantly clear there was more to what was happening with her than she was willing to admit.
“Why would I?” she asked.
He countered. “Why wouldn’t you? I’m only here for another week. I’m safe to talk to, to trust.”
She slid off him and laid by his side. “You’re going to talk to me about trust?”
Her retreat stung more than it should. “Yeah, so I have issues with trust, but we’re not talking about me.”
“I’ll tell you mine if you tell me yours,” she said.
He wondered if she really would. But, still, he wasn’t about to talk to her about his shit. Sure, he had hang ups, he could admit that. But talking about them was another story.
“I can help if you’ll let me,” he said instead. The same couldn’t be said for him. Sharing his story wouldn’t help him. His story was over. There was nothing anyone could do to fix it now.
Something told him she was right smack in the middle of something bad and as much as he didn’t want to let himself get sucked in, he wanted to protect this woman. Wanted to help end whatever it was that had her running.
Because that’s what she was doing. He could see it in every interaction. She was pulling within, getting ready to go.
He pulled her closer to him and this time, he met her eyes. “I’m here if you want to talk. For this week and then after by email or phone if you need anything.”
He was an
idiot. He should walk away.
idiot. He should walk away.
“Why?” she asked and he could see the mistrust there, the fear and caution.
He answered her the only way he could. Honestly. “I don’t know.”
