Who cares what everyone thinks?
Apparently Mel Simmons does.
Secrets can weigh you down, destroy you if you give them the chance. Unless you face them head on. Unfortunately for Mel, her secrets are her very defining nature. Consumed by the need to hide a painful past, she never realizes that locking her inner demons away is pushing her one chance of happiness out of her grasp. She has her music, the promise of a rewarding career, the craziest group of friends, what more could she possibly want?
Tom Davis has a secret of his own, well two, if you consider the fact that he has fallen head over heels for his 'assignment': a feisty, beautiful, talented woman who considers her life off-limits to anyone interested in pursuing her. She is frustrating, smart as a whip and in more than a little need of rescuing. The problem is, she just doesn't realize it yet.

This is Book Three in the Davis Series. It is a stand alone novel, but it is recommended to read "The Trouble with Neighbors" and "Forget about Texas" first since the characters appear in this story.

She was almost to the door when Tom shut it abruptly, leaving just the two of them in far too close quarters. His eyes were blazing. She took a step back, her eyes matching the fire in his.
“You threw me under the bus!” she hissed.
He took a step forward, pointing toward her chest.
“You threw yourself under the bus!” he sneered. “Did you really think I wouldn’t realize the email was deleted? Seriously Mel…how dumb do you think I am?” he growled, taking another step toward her.
“You don’t want me to answer that,” she snapped, her eyes narrowing. This of course, pissed him off even more, causing him to take another step. She retreated, abruptly bumping into a chair.
“Maybe you’re the dumb one – obviously you forgot about the trash folder…” he muttered hotly.
“I didn’t have enough time to get it…” she muttered back.
“So you admit it!” he stopped short.
She lifted her chin a notch, the defiance in her stature glaringly apparent.
“So what? It’s just a stupid chart, Tom…besides, what exactly is it you’re after here, huh?” She stood her ground, holding onto the chair back for support.
“We’re trying to help you…” he started with narrowed eyes.
“You’re trying to help yourself…to a healthy price reduction. Why the hell else would you be so interested in what I throw away internally? Why do you need to know that Tom? What are you after?” she exclaimed.
“I think it should be obvious…” he stated taking a step.
“Please, pretend I’m ignorant – what do you want?” she stood firmly rooted.
He said nothing, just stared into her green eyes, still hot with fury.
“What do you want!” she sneered forcefully.
“This,” he said quickly, closing the gap and grabbing her shoulders. He slanted his head and captured her lips with his.
