Even if it means we’re wantonly destroying our family . . . I can’t resist him.
I know it’s not right to pine for this man, but those eyes are impossibly dark and his full pouting lips call to me like no other. He’s strictly forbidden from seeing me again, but he’s the one wielding all the power, controlling my body with a single, menacing look. He tells me I can be his dark, little secret and I’m honestly having a hard time saying no.
I’m Izzabelle Spade, the good-girl librarian: organized, anti-social, your average “by the book” kind of girl. Dustin Miller is off limits, with that naturally tanned skin, deep, brooding eyes and broad shoulders. Untouchable, to a girl like me—usually. But not anymore.
When I screw up, a beautiful chaos ensues. I demand a do over, but he has something else in mind. I know I should say no—absolutely not. I should turn around, walk away and never look back. But what do you think happens when he's a “get what I want, when I want” kind of guy and what he wants is me?

Dustin's dad sighs harshly. “Do you even know what the word love means, Son?” His fingers still cover his eyes, like he's hiding from someone, then he swipes that hand through his hair out of frustration. “Love is more than the sweet piece of ass you pick up at a bar. It's more than the little bucket of fun you drag home from a wedding. Love, Son, is something else entirely. It's determination and compromise and forgiveness. It's time and effort and money—so much money. Do you think you're really ready for that, Son? Because if you think she’s it, you’d better think again. What you want and what she wants are two very different things; that I am sure of.”
