A story of heart-stopping, toe-curling passion by the beloved bestselling author of Hard to Love, Resisting Her, and The Impact of You.

Straight-laced and well-mannered southerner Emmy Clarke is out of her depth in New York City’s fashion world, but when she lands a job as an assistant at a modeling agency it seems like the perfect mix of business and pleasure. Working under the notoriously tyrannical Fiona Stone is a nightmare, but there’s one distinct perk: ogling the ridiculously hot male models who parade through the office—particularly rising star Ben Shaw.

Ben is everything Emmy’s not: exquisitely gorgeous, highly paid, and well-traveled. He’s also got more issues than Vogue. Emmy looks after Ben on photo shoots, but she refuses to become another one of his lusting groupies. Ben finds Emmy’s refreshingly real attitude to be surprisingly attractive.

Against a backdrop of the most fashionable cities in the world, casual flirting turns into an illicit affair, but when Ben’s twisted past is revealed, and the bitter Fiona catches wind of their relationship, their careers and hearts are threatened.

The photographer only prompted Ben very little.  He knew how to move on camera, holding each pose for a few clicks, then turning, tilting his jaw just slightly, pouting his mouth, placing his hands on his hips, in his hair.  He knew how to work the camera.  The one thing that remained constant despite his movements was his intense stare, looking straight into the camera.  Those dark hazel eyes burning so brilliantly.  A shiver raced up my spine remembering how dark and hungry his eyes looked when he rubbed the toy against my panties last night.

The photographer clicked away, in obvious joy at getting to work with such a talent.  “Chin up,” he directed.  “Beautiful.”  Click, click.  “Relax your shoulders.”  Click. “Stunning.  Just like that.”  Click, click.

The ads for the designer denim jeans hugging Ben in all the right places would be on billboards and in magazines that fall.  I felt like a cool kid that I got to sneak a peak of the behind the scenes action.

“Great, now look off camera.  Pick something to focus on,” the photographer told Ben.

His eyes found mine.

“Good, stay there,” the photographer said.

Ben’s pouty lips parted and his gaze slipped lower, settling over my chest.  His jaw twitched.  Desire raced through my system.  My breasts felt so full and heavy, they practically throbbed for his touch.

Every tilt of his jaw, each flex of his arms felt sexual to me, a silent beckoning me with his eyes.  I suppressed a hot shiver.  The things he could do to my body without laying a finger on me scared me.  This man was devastating to my system.

 “Smoldering!” the photographer called out, continuing to click away.

If he only knew…my panties were about to ignite.  Honest to God,  I was a fire hazard.  Ben needed to stop looking at me like that.  His eyes wandered the length of my body, and I lost any interest I had in keeping us apart.  My body wanted this too bad.  Craved it.  Like a junkie needing a fix.
