That is until she literally runs into Hale Chase. Hale Chase, learned a long time ago not to let fate lead his life. He takes what he wants, when he wants, and how he wants. When Hale watches Ashlee being escorted by security from his building, he decides to see what this woman is all about. But when he “accidentally” bumps into her he’s more than surprised by what he gets. Hale offers Ashlee a way to stay in New York and promises her that all her dreams will be realized, all she has to do is willfully surrender.
