Alexander (Xander) Livingston left college with the dream of becoming CEO of his uncle’s technology company. Nine years later, all his dreams have come true. All except for one: marrying the love of his life.
Madison (Maddie) Hightower had always been a loner until Xander came along. Devastated after he left her behind to chase his dreams, she focused all her energy on becoming president of a digital software company – the same business Xander is slated to take over. Even after all these years, her attraction for Xander is still sizzling and palpable. He still makes her heart sing, but she isn’t sure if he feels the same way.
Xander is interested in the merger for two reasons. The first is the potential for growth in the digital market, and the second is a chance to reconnect with Maddie. He’s never forgotten her. She was supposed to be by his side as he climbed the corporate ladder, and now he has the opportunity to swoop in, buy the company, and have Maddie working under him. Literally.
But Maddie had a secret. One she never told Xander when he left her in California and headed to the East Coast— a secret she never thought he’d ever uncover.
The merger of their companies will bring Xander face to face with Maddie’s life-altering betrayal. How he handles this discovery will determine the future for both and decide the fates of these two star-crossed lovers.
Second chance romances with a twist, are always fun. Xander and Maddie have been in touch despite not being lovers since they finished college.
It’s intriguing that they kept their friendship for so long considering that they both have the candle burning for each other. Their attraction is simmering in the background until life forces their hands and they come back into each other lives physically.
Maddie isn’t prepared for everything. Her secret is life shattering and this story deal with the aftermath. Her company has been acquired by the one man she hasn’t forgotten about . Maddie, is the love of his life and the one he never could keep around. So Xander is keen to renew their romance and see where it will take them.
However I don’t think he is prepared but the secret but these two are ready to face anything if they can put everything in the past and look to the future. Now there wasn’t bad with the situation. It was two people forced by their young ages to prepared for themselves for the future.
They were older and wiser so despite the knee jerk reaction. I love these two. They were willing to work together so the romance was fun after the hiccup. I wanted more even though we saw these happy and their future. These two were just fun and I love the cameos.
