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.
