Ashley James was through with men. But, she was also a professional. How she ended up working for the first man to break her heart while in the middle of a nasty breakup with the current man who'd broken her heart, she didn't know. One of life's cruel jokes, she guessed. Well, the joke was on life. Her job was the one thing that made sense in her life. And, she wasn't going to let stupid men take that from her. If her ex, Nick Connor was her client, so be it. She would do this job just as competent as she always did...as soon as she mustered the courage to get out of her car and go into Nick's office. Nick Connor thought he'd never see Ashley James again. She'd disappeared without a trace after he'd messed up and hurt her all those years ago. He thought he'd lost the only woman he'd ever loved. Now fate had brought them back together. Only, she's ending a long term relationship and men aren't exactly on her list of favorite people. And, he is definitely at the top of her "people she hates" list. He may not know what to do, but there's no way he'll let her get away from him a second time.
