Blurb:

Money. Status. Wealth. Power.
I believed I was entitled to all of it.
My legacy.

Jolie Chapman.
I thought I was entitled to her, too.
My love.

In a scandal that set our families against each other, I lost.
My legacy.
My love.
Everything.

I was heir to a throne built on lies, my crown forged from corruption.
Stripped of everything I’d been raised to consider my birthright.
Including my princess—who wasn’t mine, after all.

I’ve spent the past decade rebuilding my life, on my own terms.
Money. Status. Wealth. Power.
They’ve been earned.

Now I’ve returned to Manhattan for redemption, too.
Jolie wasn’t supposed to be here.
… And I wasn’t supposed to care.

Screw me once, shame on you.
Screw me twice—
Who am I kidding? I don’t believe in second chances anymore.

 

Excerpt:

“What are you doing here?” Jolie’s voice had sharpened, words like bullets aimed my way.

At this point, I didn’t have a goddamned clue. “I live here.”

“Here, in New York?”

“As of a week ago. Your face is on a billboard right outside my apartment.”

She backed away, in the opposite direction of the open ledge, putting several feet between us. A lock of hair fell over her cheek, briefly shielding her expression from view. When Jolie turned my way again, any trace of vulnerability was gone. “And you decided to . . . what? Maul me, for old times sake?”

“Not sure that’s the word I would have used.”

“Really? What would you call it then?”

My gut twisted. The one that came to mind was mistake.

I didn’t realize I’d said it aloud until Jolie chimed in, her lips curving into a counterfeit smile. “We can agree on that, at least.” The dismissiveness in her tone made me want to throw her over my shoulder and carry her back to my place. Kiss away some of her confidence, feed off her needy moans, spank the sass out of her.

“Listen,” I exhaled a sigh, raking stiff fingers through my hair, “what we had—”

“Is behind us. We were kids.”

“Right.” I forced the word through my mouth, making liars out of us both. The last few minutes had proved our past was still very much a part of our present. “But there’s something . . .” Untangling my gaze from hers, I searched for the right words.

Clearly impatient for our interaction to be over, Jolie interrupted again. “No, Tripp. There’s nothing. Not anymore. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I really have to get out of this make-up.”

Did she have to make this so fucking hard, dismissing what we had like it was nothing?

Of course she did. She was Jolie Fucking Chapman. Difficult was in her DNA.

I pulled out my phone. “What’s your number. I’ll—”

Her eyes blazed. “What? Text me?” A bitter laugh scratched at my ears as she spun on her heel.

Against my better judgment, I followed her to where a mirror and table had been set up in front of a director’s-style chair. Jolie was settling herself into it, a woman coming at her with an open jar of thick white cream. “Give us a minute.” I snapped, just before she’d submerged her fingers.

The girl slapped the lid back on and flounced off. Jolie gawked at me. “For god’s sake, what else is there to say?” There was a tremble in her lower lip, the slightest flutter of her chin. Emotions way too close to the surface for her comfort.

Or mine.

Sending a glance skyward, I raked agitated hands through my hair. “Look, what I want to tell you isn’t about us.”

Jolie crossed her arms over her chest, a self-protective gesture. “There is no us.”

Blurb:

I was called a prodigal son.
A scion of Midas.

I believed it. Why wouldn’t I?
Everything my father touched turned to gold.

The proof was all around me.
Luxury cars.
Elite schools.
A billion-dollar business.
Even my girlfriend, a Park Avenue Princess.

I reigned from a throne of lies.
My fall from grace… wasn’t graceful at all.
