♥ Don’t miss today’s KND Romance of the Day ♥
by Krys Batts
Jamie Dubois is an ambitious professional who uses her job in Houston, Texas, to escape her calamitous history with men and love. Nothing has ever gone as expected and no one has ever turned out to be what he seemed. So Jamie has given up–at least for now–on the whole idea of marriage and white picket fences.
To ensure a steel-like control of her emotions, Jamie deliberately abstains from all romantic entanglements–until she meets Ken, a handsome man whose own career is skyrocketing. For the first time in three years, Jamie is enticed into dangerous waters, entering into a long-distance dalliance that she endeavors to treat lightly. Since Ken lives in Miami, she reasons with herself that, despite their easy conversations and steamy lovemaking, she cannot–she will not–become unduly attached to him.
Unfortunately for Jamie, fate takes a turn that reduces her calculated control to smoke as Ken accepts a new job in Houston with her employer. Not only is he now local, but he’s her newest colleague. Soon, she is mired in mayhem as the predictable life she knows is turned upside-down–and everything she wants becomes everything she can’t have.
