eBook Description: When Kirstin Jones agreed to work with her live-in boyfriend, Mason, on a freelance job for a wealthy client, she never thought it might destroy their relationship. But the client's keen observations show her that she's been little more than Mason's shadow. Fed up with his insensitivities, she moves out. Weeks later, desperate to stand on her own, she accepts work with the same client once again. Only this time, the project requires Mason's help. To obtain his aid, she must meet his terms. And what he wants is more than she can afford. Mason Montgomery is baffled by Kirstin's claims that he never had time for her. While verbalizing his emotions has never been his strong point, he's spent five years showing his love. He needs Kirstin more than he wants to admit. When she leaves him, he'll stop at nothing to get her back, even if it means working with the client who twisted truths and tore his life apart. This time Mason's not leaving room for misunderstandings.

Struck dumb by a fear more terrifying than any imprisoning nightmare, Mason watched Kirstin disappear out the door. He was losing her. Really, truly losing Kirstin. And God help him, he didn't know how to stop this out of control roller coaster.
Didn't know if he could.
Or even should.
They were so mixed up and at odds. So removed from the closeness they'd shared for the five most important years of his life. Maybe she was right--love wasn't enough anymore.
No. He couldn't allow himself to believe that. He needed her too much to let her go without a fight.
Raking a hand through his hair, he found the ability to move and sagged into the recliner. He'd made things worse by telling her about Lisa. But while he might be clueless now and then, he wasn't a complete Neanderthal. He heard loud and clear what she'd said, and Kirstin needed words from him.
It made sense now--the expectations, her claims she'd been alone. Logically, he didn't necessarily agree. She could have asked him to come to bed with her if it bothered her so much. But logic and reason aside, her former innate ability to understand him had morphed into a hunger for affirmation. Reassurance his good intentions failed to deliver.
She believed him incapable. In many ways, she was right. He simply didn't know how to tell her what resided in his heart. Showing through his actions had always been easier. But that approach wouldn't cut it now.
If he intended to save the best five years of his life from imminent disaster, he had to step up and meet her halfway. And he'd better figure out how, damn quick. Before Steve Whitmore could seduce her with promises of career success.
