There’s only one thing you need to know about me. I’m a cold-hearted bastard that will never love you the way you deserve. And I’m sorry to say, bastard beats nice guy, every time.
I never lie. Never deceive. I lay out exactly what will happen. My only promise is that I’m a one-night stand. That this is will be our first and last time together. Then I stand back and let them walk. But they never do. Because they all want to believe they will be the one to change me.
And, Gwen Johnson, the woman that will be his demise…
There’s only one thing you need to know about me. What I want, I get. End of story. I didn’t come to own one of the best restaurants in the city of Chicago before the age of thirty by taking no for an answer. And what I want is for this cold-hearted bastard, and culinary genius, to work for me. I don’t care how difficult he is. I’m going to figure out what makes him tick, what he needs most, and then I’m going to go in for the kill.
The way I see it, you either own it, or it owns you…
|Gwen Johnson owner of a top-notch restaurant in Chicago has traveled to Louisiana to try to hire Jackson McKay to come back to Chicago and work for her at her new restaurant as her top chief. Problem one Jackson knows who she is as soon as she shows up at the bar, second, he thinks by serving her his own mozzarella sticks which were his own mistake because he took something simple and made them special, the third problem was the immediate attraction between them and the man who was a bastard at keeping women and others away could not keep her away.
When they start to become a couple for the weeks that she is there she begins to find out more about him and a secret. Problems arise when she opens her heart to him and he responds by letting her walk. It was more than that but you need to read the book.
