Armed with the knowledge that her career will be her only legacy, Alexis works night and day to prove that she is more than just her last name. It’s not only that she doesn’t have time for love – she doesn’t have the heart for it. After all, there’s no point in starting something that you can’t finish.
However, when she meets Adam, she’s drawn to him in a way even she can’t deny. He is dark and brooding and strangely charming. He’s the perfect distraction from the mundane life she’s created for herself. And, as if fate is pushing them together, he seems to be around every corner. It’s enough to almost make her entirely forget about her past and take a chance.
Unfortunately, Adam’s memory isn’t hazy . . . not in the least. And, what she doesn’t remember, he can’t forget.

Even though my eyes were still focused on Ethan, I could see Adam in my periphery. Just as he reached for the door, I forced a giggle. Miraculously, the sound that bubbled out of me sounded more genuine than I thought possible, considering how hollow and breakable I suddenly felt. Adam paused at the door and turned toward us. Again, I forced myself not to look in his direction, but I could feel his eyes on me. And then he pushed the door open, and the energy in the room was gone.
“That was fantastic. If your day job doesn’t work out, maybe you should try acting,” Ethan said, squeezing my hands before he let them go.
“What was that? What have I done?” I groaned at him. “Adam and I don’t play games with each other.”
“If that’s the guy you want, I think you’d better start,” he said. He raised his eyebrows and cocked his head toward the window.
Adam shut the passenger door for his stunning coffee date and walked around the front of what had to be one of the sexiest cars I’d ever seen. It was some sort of vintage muscle car that appeared to have been meticulously restored and maintained. It was sleek and black with two grey stripes down the hood. It was bold and eye-catching, and looked incredibly fast. It also had a toughness about it that said ‘don’t mess with me.’ It was just like Adam.
As he opened the driver’s side door, he looked up over the roof of the car, and his eyes met mine through the window. The corners of his mouth turned up in the barest hint of a smile. He nodded once at me and then ducked inside the car. It started up with a roar, and he was gone.
With the girl.
In the car. That I had never even seen before, let alone been in.
“No fucking way, Alexis.” Ethan said, groaning. “You’re dating Batman.”
I finally turned away from the window, but couldn’t return his smile.
The smile fell from his face, and he threw his hands up in the air in frustration. “I take that back. You’re in love with Batman.”
