Words to live by:
Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.
Don't break the rules.
I'd managed to fail at both by fraternizing with the enemy's brother. Guess I'd followed in my mother's footsteps by ignoring all the rules when it came to love.
Mom was marrying a man only six years older than me. A man who was also her student. But the biggest surprise that came out of their wedding wasn't my new stepdad's academic status or his age.
It was Jack Davis--my stepfather's best friend.
Jack was the guy who could change the whole game. He was quite possibly my soul mate. But time and circumstance were against us--there was no easy way around it. I was moving back to New York in two weeks and his sister, Aubrey, was the one person my family hated most in this world. How would his sister--the enemy--deal with another Edwards girl claiming what she believed was hers? The idea of letting Jack go crippled me.
Would I have to cut ties with the only man I'd ever let into my heart?
