When Ethan lands a job at an advertising agency, he realizes his co-workers aren’t exaggerating about the impossibly handsome lawyer, James Trenchard. He really is a dick. But after Ethan is forced to work closely with James, he realizes there’s more to the lawyer than meets the eye.
James has learned to hide his pain with a mask no one can penetrate, until he meets Ethan. Young, talented, and far too knowing, Ethan forces James to face the hard, uncompromising truth he’s been avoiding for too long.
Even knowing it’s the worst idea, Ethan tumbles hopelessly in love with James. But this could put them in danger. They need to find a way out of the cycle that’s hurting them both before their brand-new love suffers as well.
