When the one in your way is the one that you want.....

One last task to complete, then Alex Panos can fulfill a heartbreaking promise. That is, if he can get past cute and quirky Mara Hemmingway.

On her own since she was sixteen, Mara’s been taken advantage of before and won’t be let it happen again — especially not by brooding and troubled Alex. Instead, she’ll play him at his own game. But what if winning, means losing all over again?

When their powerful attraction threatens to get in the way of both their dreams, someone will have to face a future of waiting on forever.
