Cannot believe that this is the last Monday of January? Where does the time go?🌱
Brooke Anderson never pictured herself as a divorcee at twenty-eight. But when she mentions getting a post-nup to her husband Garrett after one deliciously sex-filled year, he promptly serves her with divorce papers. Admittedly, she could’ve told him about how her father left her and her mother homeless when she was young, and how she’s never been wired to trust anyone. Especially those closest to her. Now, all she wants to do is avoid anywhere he might be so she won’t have to face him again.
But she’s not the only one who can’t seem to trust.
Garrett Call grew up with parents who married for money and wants no part of a life that puts material possessions above love. He reinvented himself in college, complete with a new last name so he couldn’t be tied to his family’s lucrative business. He never even told Brooke the truth. Admittedly, he could’ve handled the issue of a post-nup better with his ex-wife. Maybe he didn’t count on how much he was going to miss having her in his life.
When their best friends’ wedding forces the exes to see each other again, a dangerous man from Garrett’s world threatens Brooke’s life. And they realize the only way to save themselves is to finally learn to trust each other.

Context: Unable to get Garrett out of her system, Brooke proposes one more night of passion between them.
“Come here,” Garrett ordered.
A shiver went down her spine at the command in his voice. She liked when he did that when they were alone. And she loved that when she obeyed him, he fucking worshipped her body.
She moved to stand in front of him and tilted her chin up to look into his beautiful green eyes.
“What is this?” he asked. “Because I’m guessing our little conversation at the table didn’t change your mind.”
“Claudia thinks we’re arguing because we need to get each other out of our systems.” She dropped her gaze to his lips, studying his perfect mouth. “I think it makes sense.”
He took a deep breath and closed his eyes. When he opened them, he said, “Next time you see your friend, tell her I love her.”
Brooke gasped when Garrett wrapped his large hands around her hips and picked her up to swing her onto the edge of the sink counter.
Was this really a good idea? And more importantly, would once be enough to get Garrett completely out of her system?
