I wanted to focus on my career, and move up the ranks entirely on my own. Then I was talked into one little “business date” with my boss, and everything changed in a heartbeat. Or rather, a flutter of them.
Watching my family had taught me the wrong way to do things, and I never wanted to follow their lead. Working as a junior researcher at Wentworth, Sudhir and Carols was a great step for my career, and I would never do anything as foolish as to fall for the most senior of the senior partners.
Except that I did.
I wanted Charles completely. My body and my brand new libido had formed a gang, and kicked my logical mind out.
No woman can resist a man who cooks and packs lunch for her, no matter how strong her resolve. Charles was so passionate, almost obsessive, making it too hard to remember where lines should be drawn.
Maybe there was a way that I could turn off this whirlwind of lust and love. Maybe there was a way to convince myself that feeling cared for is not as satisfying as being totally independent.
