I don’t know why Barrett Byron-Moore is here in San Francisco, but before midnight, I’m going to have my wicked way with him. Happy birthday to me. Well, Barrett isn’t just some random guy.

Barrett is confusing all my trusted instincts. And the more time we spend together—touching, tasting, wanting—the deeper I’m sinking.

They shatter. And for this Cinderella, there’s no such thing as a happy ending… Take control. Feel the rush.
