Grant Lasker. My first love. My first heartbreak. And now, my boss.
Grant Lasker is the first guy I fell in love with.
The first guy I shared everything with.
I thought what we had was perfect…until I found out I was just a bet to him.
All the lavish gifts and attention were nothing more than tricks to fool me.
Grant always wins, no matter the collateral damage.
I ran away without a second glance and rebuilt my life, along with the walls around my heart.
Fourteen years later, I manage to find a job that pays enough to keep my beloved grandfather in a private assisted-living center.
There is just one problem…
The person I need to work for is Grant, and he seems to think I’m the one who betrayed him and is doing everything in his power to make my life hell.
But if he thinks he's going to win again, he has another think coming.
Margaret Jackson has had enough of Ricky's games. The boy has been leading her on since they were in diapers. It was past time she set out on her own and discovered just who she was outside of the small town of Fairplay, Texas.

Carter is a player. Then again, so is Kara. They've been dancing around each other for six long years. Sure, there were a few heated passionate nights together at first. But then she pulled away and well… he let her. But his heart kept being pulled back to her and it was driving him nuts.
Kara's past has finally caught up with her. She'd been hiding from the pain, the lies, and the law. She'd gone unnoticed all these years by working in dark rooms, using the one gift she had.

It won't be easy, but with the guidance of her counselor, she knows it's the right thing to do.
