Since meeting Garret on her first night at college, Jade’s had to overcome many obstacles to be with him, including interference from Garret’s father.
Now, months later, it seems that Mr. Kensington has finally accepted Jade dating his son, but the reason for that is unclear. After what Jade witnessed at the Kensington mansion, she’s not sure what his acceptance of her means. Is she tied to his family forever now that she knows some of their darkest secrets?
Spring semester begins at Moorhurst College and a new student arrives who has a little too much interest in Garret’s family. And a little too much interest in Jade.
Garret continues to win Jade’s heart with romantic gestures that make her love him even more. It seems like everything is starting to work out for Jade, but as her mother used to say...Good things never last. Or do they?

“Yeah, and I’m not telling you what’s in it, so stop looking over my shoulder.”
“Why won’t you tell me?”
He sets the spices down and turns to me. “Because once you taste this chili you’ll want it again and again. And the only way you’ll have it again is if I make it. It’s another way for me to make sure you keep me around.”
I loop my arms around his neck, pulling him down for a kiss. “You don’t need chili for that. What you did before we got here makes me want to keep you around.”
“So you’re just using me for sex?”
“Pretty much.” I let go of him and turn toward the fridge.
He grabs me around the waist, hauling my backside against him and talking softly by my ear. “How is it possible that just being in here cooking with you is totally turning me on?”
“You, too? I thought it was just me.”
His hands move where they shouldn’t, making my legs so weak that I practically melt into him as he holds me.
“We’re not doing it in this house, Garret,” I say, breathless.
“I know. So stay with me tonight.” He moves my hair aside and kisses the side of my neck.
I force my legs to work again and turn to face him. “I want to, but I really need to be here with Frank.”
“It’s just overnight. Frank will be asleep. He won’t care if you’re gone while he’s asleep. I’ll make sure you’re back here first thing in the morning.”
“It’s tempting, but I still think I should stay here.”
He sighs and returns to the stove. “Okay. But you need to keep away from me because you’re driving me crazy. And stop rubbing up against me every time you walk by.”
“It’s a small kitchen. I can’t help it.” I go over to the stove and reach in front of him for the salt shaker, causing my butt to brush against his jeans.
He backs away. “Jade?”
“What? I need the salt.”
