Iโ€™m an independent woman. Iโ€™ve learned never to ask for help. Iโ€™ve been on my own for years. Until my sister leaves me to take care of my niece. If only they had left her in my capable hands. Instead, I share custody with him. Infamous billionaire, Tucker Decker. He likes his relationships casual and free of commitment. Family ties are at the bottom of his list. Heโ€™s ruthless, impulsive, cold-hearted, and hot as sin. But when it comes to his former bandmates, heโ€™d do anything for them. Tragedy demands sacrifice. Weโ€™re forced to move-in together to care for my niece. He has to learn that thereโ€™s more to life than money. I need to learn how to trust...and how to love. But when the ghosts of our past come back to haunt us, can we survive them and each other?

The party runs smoothly. Patrick or Rocco remains close to my sister unless his two

friends are around. Thank goodness my parents sent their apologies. Theyโ€™ll be at the wedding.


Itโ€™s past nine when the crowd begins to thin. The caterer and the cleaning crew are

bustling around, making sure things remain tidy. The door of the kitchen swings open, Iโ€™m expecting to see Grams who was going to help


Gramps go upstairs. Instead, itโ€™s him. My cells buzz with excitement, which I don't quite understand. Heโ€™s not my type. I like clean shaven, laid back, trustworthy guys.

โ€œNeed any help?โ€ he asks.


โ€œWhy would you ask? Is this some kind of outreach program? One kind act to make up

for your daily shit?โ€

He lifts his eyebrows and studies me.

โ€œWhat is it?โ€ I ask. โ€œYou keep watching me.โ€


He smiles, extending his hand. โ€œLetโ€™s start again, Tucker Dean Decker.โ€

The contact of his skin against mine sends a fluttering sensation along my extremities

and my stomach. My breath quickens. I have the need to run away from him.

Those eyes have turned warm, and for some reason, he prolongs the grip longer than

he should. I feel the warmth of his skin. Suddenly, Iโ€™m too aware of his closeness. For a

moment, I look at his big calloused hand, swallowing mine. I enjoy the electric pulses

that his touch creates.


Scared of how I feel, I tug my hand out of his grasp, taking a step back.

โ€œIs it the haircut or the five-thousand-dollar suit?โ€ he asks. โ€œThere has to be a good

reason why you donโ€™t like me.โ€


โ€œMaybe both,โ€ I reply. โ€œTell me, Dean, is that name strictly to pick up women?โ€

He shakes his head. โ€œItโ€™s a way to keep undesired attention. Introducing myself as

Tucker Decker isโ€ฆsomething I stopped doing a long time ago.โ€

I laugh. โ€œYour ego has been pumped that much that you think women will throw

themselves at your feet?โ€


โ€œBaby, I donโ€™t need a bunch of women to stroke my ego to know when a woman is

attracted to me. The question is, why are you fighting it?โ€ he says boldly.

โ€œYouโ€™re full of shit,โ€ I say, blowing out some air, before I smack him.

โ€œTuck, the jet is ready. We promised to meet Nana for brunch,โ€ Ethan says.


โ€œIs Rocco coming?โ€


Ethan steps inside, shaking his head. โ€œNope, and itโ€™s for the best, Zeke isnโ€™t going to

take the new Patrick well. At least the fiancรฉe is sweet.โ€

โ€œYouโ€™re judging her without knowing her,โ€ I declare.


โ€œIf you knew Rocco, youโ€™d know why weโ€™re cautious,โ€ Ethan says. โ€œI canโ€™t apologize for

watching over my friend. Arenโ€™t you concerned that your sister is dating a rock star?โ€

A pit of hopelessness opens in my stomach, should I be concerned? โ€œIโ€ฆโ€

โ€œHeโ€™s a good guy,โ€ Tucker says. โ€œTrust takes time, and Iโ€™m sure itโ€™s both ways. We donโ€™t

expect you to welcome him with open arms.โ€


โ€œI trust my sister,โ€ I say.


โ€œMaybe we donโ€™t trust Rocco and thatโ€™s the root of it all,โ€ he tells me and winks, leaving

without letting me ask any questions.

Who are you marrying, Sienna Heywood?

Claudia is an award-winning, USA Today bestselling author. She writes alluring, thrilling stories about complicated women and the men who take their breath away.

She lives in Denver, Colorado with her husband and her youngest two children. She has

a sweet Bichon, Macey, who thinks sheโ€™s the ruler of the house. Sheโ€™s only partially right.

When Claudia is not writing, you can find her reading, knitting, or just hanging out with

her family. At night, I like to binge-watch shows with his equal geek husband.
