Two billionaires who never fail to get what they want. They both want the same woman. Only one can have her.
Alistair knows he is seriously damaged inside and begins seeing a psychiatrist in hopes of repairing himself to whatever extent he can so he doesn't lose Sophia. While he makes quick progress, Sophia finds out that Alistair's dark side is much darker than she thought, and she will have to make a life-changing decision on how to deal with it.
Sophia's nightmares come out to haunt her in the daylight as she recovers her memory. She recalls in horrifying detail what happened to her late husband—and to her—and what she did to others. Now she knows what she’s running from and is certain she doesn't deserve to be with Alistair.
Ethan’s mind also takes a trip to the past and recalls a bittersweet experience that marked him for life. Sophia's predecessor, a beautiful Greek girl he briefly loved during his teenage years, made one summer the most magical, and the most devastating. Meanwhile, he gathers information that Alistair would do anything to keep from letting it go public.
