Luke Jordan had everything he could have ever wanted. Cars, houses, a company he built with his own sweat and blood, friends, women, you name it. If there was anything that he didn't have, he could easily buy it with the money he had more than he needed. But the one thing he wanted, he couldn't have.
Had Katie Boyd been any other woman, he would have taken her to bed right from the beginning and give her the best night of her life. But life loved playing games with him and Katie Boyd wasn't just any other woman. She was his best friend's younger sister and eleven years younger than him.
Work was enough distraction for five years, all of them spent wanting her but not having her. He had resigned to this unrequited love that would never quit until his best friend made a decision to go on a holiday and leave his sister under Luke's care.
