Outwardly, I had it all. As a sports commenter at ESPN, I travel the world, attending the most prestigious sporting events, and meeting all sorts of famous people. I’ve got great friends, and women whenever I want them, but I miss the little girl I helped raise and still adore. My heart was broken when my best friend came back to step in and take my place as her dad. It left a huge hole in my life.
At least, my career was on the uptick, until Missy Ellington sailed into my network intent on stealing the promotion I’d been working my ass off to attain. The new job would allow me to travel less and stay in Atlanta so I’d be able to spend more time with my little Remi. I wasn’t about to let some woman no one ever heard of come in and usurp that chance.
Missy was beautiful and smart, but her relentless ambition and cold demeanor was off-putting as hell. She was the type of woman any red-blooded man would be attracted to, if it weren’t for the arctic freeze. I was intrigued, but professional ethics meant I had to keep it under wraps. There was something about her that told me that she wasn’t just a ruthless media shark. I sensed a vulnerability lurking beneath the surface that attracted me as much as her fiery personality and stunning looks. At first, she came off as a shrew with a serious aversion to men, but I was determined to find out what caused the pain behind her brilliant aquamarine eyes.
When I discovered Missy’s single-minded ferociousness to succeed was driven by a painful past and a little boy, named Dylan, protectiveness overcame my better judgment and my heart started to overrule logic. As we began to open up to each other, I couldn’t help but be drawn into her world and at the same time, she started to trust me. The details of her secret past enraged me and I vowed, as long as I was breathing, nothing, or no one, would ever hurt Missy or Dylan again.
