Brittany Banks has worked hard the past three years. Working two jobs and going to school, all Brittany wants to do is prove that her brother, Tommy, wasn't drunk when he hit Jackson Williams and left him paralyzed, but drugged. Thinking Rupert Holt, the travel agency where she works most prestigous client is interested in helping her, she accepts his invitation to dinner. When she rebuffs his sexual advances, a menacing, evil side of him comes out. After hitting her, he shoves her out of the car. From there, she sets off walking, only to have a guardian angel swoop down and save her.
Collier Smith has worked his whole life to prove to his stepfather, Mason Williams, that even if he doesn't have his blood running through his veins, he can make him proud. With his stepbrother, Jackson, out of the running, Collier has been nominated for a federal judgeship. Then he meets Brittany Banks, not knowing how she is or how she could effect his life.
While the sexual tension is high between the two, they are intimate often which rids the tension between the two. It is basically a story about a trailer trash woman who isn't good enough for the man she loves. The man is torn between making his stepfather proud and the woman he has fallen in love with. While this isn't one of the better books I've read, I would recommend it on a rainy day.
