What does one do when your mind says go but your heart says stay?
In Stephanie Deniese Brown’s third installment of her Wesson Family Saga, newly divorcee, Renata McKain-Christian learns if giving it up all in the name of love is either the best gift she’ll ever receive or the curse she rather not face.
Renata, fresh off a divorce and ready to start a new life, with no distractions, finds immediate trouble the second she accepts a job from Carson Becker. Carson is established, powerful, and most of all rich. All the things Renata is not and that makes her feel unworthy of his love. But Carson doesn’t care about her pocketbook, he sets out to capture Renata’s mind, body, and soul. Just as he gets Renata to let her guard down and things start sizzling in the boardroom and the bedroom, secrets are unleashed that threaten to take away everything these two have built.
When power and insecurities threaten a relationship everything comes down to figuring out if the love you share is really a gift or a curse.
“You want to come in?” he asked, his voice dropping to a sexy whisper.
Renata looked around and then back at him. “Come in where?”
“Into my home, of course.”
“I…I…I don’t know if that’s a good idea.”
“Because y…you’re my b…b…b…b…boss.”
“So, if I wasn’t your boss, you would come in?”
Renata closed her eyes and took a deep breath. This man was way too much for her. What kind of question was that? Of course, if he was not her boss she would be all over him, devouring him like the eye candy he was.
“You know, Renata you don’t have to think too hard. You’re here because you want to be here. Why don’t you come in, let’s have something to drink and let’s take it from there?”
The offer was tempting. But as Renata allowed the words to sink into her mind and she took in his half naked body she knew that going in his home would not be a good idea. What would happen afterward? How would they deal with each other at work? How would she be able to look at him knowing that she had gone there with him? How would they make sense of everything?
“Carson, I can’t. I…I…I…I…I…I have to go.” She moved to walked away and Carson leaned in and gently touched her arm. He pulled her backward against him, placing her backside right into the hardness of his manhood. She felt him smelling her hair and her entire body went still up against him. His hand never left her arm and she prayed that this moment would last a lifetime. Seconds of silence passed before Carson bent down and whispered against her ear, “You sure you want to go.
