The morning after meeting Hugh, I was heading out the door when I saw I had a new message. I opened it cautiously and saw six words that made my heart skip a beat.
‘I need to see you again.’
Ava Reilly was just starting her career in PR when she was sent to meet one of the industry’s major players. She was naive to the ways of the entertainment business, but was determined to make a good impression. What she wasn’t prepared for was the electricity she would feel between them from the moment of their first meeting.
Soon they had embarked on a stormy, seductive love affair, with liaisons in opulent hotels across Australia and around the world. The thrill of their encounters was tainted by constant pressure to keep their relationship out of the public eye, as the danger of being discovered could put not only their personal lives but their professional lives at risk.
Ava also felt the weight of her conscience – she had never, ever imagined herself as the other woman. However, it had been a long time since she’d been able to truly trust a man, and Hugh seemed to be only one who could come close to breaking down the protective walls Ava had built around her heart.
Working day to day in an industry where secrets are currency, Ava’s lips were tightly sealed about what was happening between her and Hugh – until she began to make her confessions.
