What happened in chapter five – chapter nine?
When Damien takes Raelyn out to dinner, they spend a little time getting to know each other and Raelyn cant’t help but feel an attraction to him, despite the conflict of interest.
He finally tells her why he wanted to take her out to dinner – to tell her that Cale has been stealing from him. She’s shocked, disbelieving, but he gives her the documents and tells her to look for herself.
Not wanting the night to end on such a low note, Damien pulls over on the beach on his way to take her home. Raelyn stops fighting the attraction and they can’t keep their hands off each other. At least until Raelyn feels Damien’s scars and he shuts down.
A few days later, Raelyn finally works up the courage to look at the documents Damien gave her, and finds that Cale has stolen nearly $70,000 from Damien’s company. Feeling sick and betrayed, Raelyn confronts Cale publicly. Damien followed her because he’s concerned for her safety now that she knows what Cale’s done. Raelyn gets into a huge fight with Cale and tells him that he’s not allowed in the building and he needs to get a lawyer.
Raelyn is shaken up and Damien is worried that Cale is a threat, so he takes her to his home. Though Raelyn had been determined not to see him like this again, she’s too attracted to him and they end up being together, although Damien won’t let her him shirtless because of the scars.
- I felt like I was in high school on my first date again. Only, this time, I didn’t have braces and untamed bangs. That was what this man did to me. He reduced me into a tongue-tied mass while butterflies swarmed in my stomach.
- Damien Heathman had stormed into my life, and I had a profound feeling that he wasn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
- What do you think happened to Damien to cause those scars?
Raelyn Jennings has survived the unthinkable. She’s been given a second chance to live, to breathe, to feel. Her ability to overcome such a traumatic hurdle has created armor around her heart. But beyond her shield is fear, a consuming deep one, of the unknown. Raelyn vows to herself that she’ll solely focus on the one constant in her life, her career as the CEO for a prestigious accounting firm.
Damien Heathman’s unrelenting determination has made him a powerful, respected man. He’s sexy and confident and utterly breathtaking. His dominance and strength is evident in every purposeful stride, every meaningful look, and every soft caress.
Raelyn has worked with Damien’s company, Heathman Enterprises, for many years, but they’ve never crossed paths—until now.
Damien’s presence fills a room. He steals Raelyn’s breath and sparks her broken heart back to life. Once Damien sets eyes on Raelyn, there is no turning back. He wants her, and he’ll stop at nothing to have her. Not even the dark secrets hidden behind his tattoos will stand in his way.
The chemistry is undeniable. The passion is palpable.
Can Damien convince Raelyn that he is worth the risk? Or will Raelyn allow her past to control her future, feeling the chance of another heartache is too great to bear?
