It was late in the afternoon when Parker
called me into his office to work on a file for one of our biggest clients. It
took a couple of hours and I kept glancing surreptitiously at my watch,
wondering if I was going to have to cancel dinner with my parents. This last
time, Parker caught me at it.
“Something wrong?” he asked, raising an
“No, I just—”
“Have a date with Ryker?” Parker
“No. My parents are coming to take me to
dinner,” I said, omitting the information that Ryker was coming, too, and that
he was in fact the entire reason for my parents driving in to the city.
“Ah. I see.” Parker settled back into his
chair from where he’d been pacing as he talked through the case and I’d taken
notes. “You know, I’d like to think we’re still friends, you and me.”
“We are?” Parker and I had never discussed
our relationship after I’d left his apartment—and his bed—in the middle of the
“Of course. Which is why I told Monique I
wasn’t going to fire you.”
“Excuse me?” Surely I had misheard. “I
thought she said I was pretty.”
“Oh, she did. That was the problem. She
doesn’t like the idea of me having a secretary who looks like you.”
“Executive Administrative Assistant,” I
automatically corrected him. My immediate thought was, what a bitch. My next thought was to wonder why he was telling me
“I told her she was being ridiculous. And
you’re probably wondering why I’m telling you this,” he said.
My internal um, yeah must’ve shown on my face.
“I like Monique,” he said. “She’s
an…interesting diversion. But you…you are a fixture in my life and I wouldn’t
dream of firing you, especially at the whim of a temporary girlfriend.”
“Is that what she is? Your girlfriend?”
“For the moment.”
“Is Ryker for the moment? Or a fixture?”
That gave me pause. Since when were we
discussing our personal lives at work? Or at anyplace, for that matter?
“Why do you care?” I asked.
“We’re friends, Sage. I care. I just want
what’s best for you. Like you said last night, I want you to be happy, too.”
REVIEWWhat a way to tell a tale of a love triangle. This was an amazing read that had the events planned out as not to appear hurried or slow paced but just right. It filled with action, sexy-to-the-max kind of reading. The underlying mystery is smart and will keep you guessing to the last chapter. I cannot imaging being in the type of situation Sage is in. To be in love with two men such as Dean and Parker has definitely got to be both grand and painful. (sharing - Night Owl Reviews.com)
The way the story left me with a huge cliffhanger did leave me upset but in a good way. That was truly a riveting way to end the story. I cannot wait for the next book to come out to see how all of this will get resolved. I feel for all three. I am in love with all three and cannot make up my mind as to who Sage should end up with. To have to deal with that and find out an important secret your father has been keeping from you must be very overwhelming. Tiffany Snow did a great job with this story. She has definitely left me wanting more and more. What is going to happen next????? I can't wait to find out. (BBL Reviews)
