Emma is beautiful, educated, and damaged. Unavailable emotionally, she has succeeded in her job as an escort where liaisons only go as far as the length of time you purchase. In her line of work, relationships are risky. You don’t mix business with pleasure; it’s a conflict of interest. That was always the rule—until Anthony.
Touted as one of Los Angeles’ most sought after men, Anthony is a hot commodity. A once confirmed bachelor, his tune changes once Emma comes into his life. She’s the one, and he’ll do anything to keep her.
Hell bent on unraveling the mysteries of Emma’s life, he sets out to solve the secrets that are buried with her mother. The ghosts of Emma’s past threaten to destroy the delicate bond they have created. What he uncovers has the potential to bind them forever or break them apart.
Fate is fickle, and not always forgiving.
When it comes to brownie points, can you ever collect enough to erase the past?

I've been married for 25 years and make no excuses for either of us. What we have works for us. He doesn't keep dozens of toothbrushes in his drawer for his guests but he brings me coffee in bed every day. I don't keep dozens of toothbrushes in my drawer for guests because he's the only man for me. Never make excuses for yourself or those you love. Live in the moment, live without reservation, most importantly, live.
I felt like I was the only girl in the world until I opened his bathroom drawer and found dozens of toothbrushes for his “guests”. I remember teasing him about having so many, but he didn’t blink an eye. One thing that I have learned about Anthony is that he makes no excuses for himself. In that way, we are very much alike.
