LOOK BUT DON'T TOUCH
There was one rule.
Don’t fall in love with Grant Wood.
And I broke it. God knows I didn’t mean to! I only meant to push his buttons—to drive him as crazy as he drove me.
He was the stone-faced CEO of my father's company and I was the spoiled daughter of his mentor. Those had been our roles for years. So what if we couldn’t stand each other?
When my father gave me an ultimatum, I was forced to swallow my pride and report to Grant himself. Intern extraordinaire at your service, sir.
He clearly expected me to fail. Dressed in a clean-cut suit, sitting behind his desk, he took one look at me and dismissed me out of hand.
Me. Ada Hathaway, a graduate of Yale and valedictorian of her class. Sure, he might be a self-made millionaire, but so what?
The only good part is that he always seemed just as unnerved by me, and I loved it when his cold facade faltered. Arguing with Grant quickly became the best part of my day.
But it was never meant to become anything more. He was as off-limits to me as I was to him.
But our game went too far.
What do we do now?
