I used to have such good judgment. A solid head on my shoulders. Then I met Isaac.
We are just supposed to work together, that’s it. There is no way I’m falling for this wealthy control freak with major anger issues and a different woman in his bed every night. Even if he is super adorable and ridiculously sweet sometimes.
I’m not like other girls. I don’t believe in love and I don’t have time for fairy tales. I fought hard to get where I am today and I’m not letting it slip away because of those mischievous green eyes, that cocky tilted smile, and a pair of hands that can make the world disappear.
People say that I’m damaged, that I’m missing something inside. They’re not exactly wrong. Turns out he’s even more twisted and broken than I am and that just makes me want him more. He tells me to let go. He promises to catch me. But no one can protect me now.
Isaac doesn’t have a secret, he is a secret. We can’t be together. In 30 short days, this assignment is over and we’ll go our separate ways like it never happened. Why does my heart stop beating when I think about that? This doesn’t mean anything. I am not in love with him. I can’t be.
