Two lawyers. One divorce. And a past to overcome.
Leo Ward: Born a billionaire and employed as a corporate lawyer, I was driven, determined and obviously easily distracted by a nice ass. How else could I explain marrying a gold digger? In my defense, Sable was sneakier than most. And one fateful night, she tricked me and changed the course of my life. Now, we’re in the middle of a heated divorce, fighting for custody of our son and my money. I’ve always prided myself on being prepared and thinking three steps ahead, but Liz suddenly reappearing in my life was completely unexpected. We’d been friends in law school, and nearly more. Back then, I’d been forced to let her go. I wouldn’t make the same mistake twice.
Elizabeth Prescott: Thanks to the partners’ desire for a share of the Ward billions, I was stuck representing his wife in the divorce. Leo was the man I almost dated, until Sable managed to get her claws in him. I hadn’t seen him since. Then we ran into each other at the pool party. Instantly, our old chemistry was triggered and I could tell Leo wanted to pick up right where we left off, but there were two things in the way: his wife, and my heart. He’d nearly stolen it once before during our late night study sessions, but then he suddenly disappeared from my life. No way would I ever let him get close again.
After five years apart, all they needed was one night to get back together.
