I just work my butt off for Fleur Cosmetics and get little to no thanks for it. I’ve been pushed too far one too many times, and I’m finally brave enough to do something about it.

And when that guy—that totally gorgeous guy—locks eyes with me, I know this nice girl is going to be naughty. For once it’s my turn.

Maybe he was looking for me for a reason. Whatever his motive, there’s no going back now. And maybe I don’t want to.
