SYNOPSIS (OPIS)


They call him The Mute for a reason.
Hard, cold and calculated, he rarely speaks.
When he does, it’s with disdain.
When he does, his words aren’t meant for me.
When he does, my stomach flips and my world tilts on its axis.
He is thirty-three.
I am eighteen.
He’s a single dad and my father’s business partner.
I’m just a kid to him and his enemy’s daughter.
He’s emotionally unavailable.
And I am…feeling. Feeling things I shouldn’t feel for him.
Trent Rexroth is going to break my heart. The writing isn’t just on the wall, it’s inked on my soul.
And yet, I can’t stay away.
A scandal is the last thing my family needs. But a scandal is what we’re going to give them.
And oh, what a beautiful chaos it will be.



Kličejo ga mutec z razlogom.
Naporen, hladen in premišljen. Redko spregovori.
Ko končno spregovori, govori s prezirom.
Ko govori, njegove besede niso namenjene meni.
Ko spregovori, se mi začne v želodcu obračati in zaradi njega sem čisto na robu.
Star je triintrideset.
Jaz jih imam osemnajst.
On je samski oče in poslovni partner mojega očeta.
Za njega sem samo otrok in sovražnikova hči.
Za mene je čustveno nedosegljiv.
Jaz pa čutim... Do njega čutim stvari, ki jih ne bi smela.
Trent Rexroth mi bo zlomil srce. To ni zapisano samo na zidu, ampak tudi v moji duši.
In vseeno se ne morem držati stran.
Škandal je zadnja stvar, ki jo moja družina potrebuje. In ravno škandal je tisto, kaj jim bova dala.
In kakšen čudoviti kaos bo to.

TEASER (CITAT)



EXCERPT (ODLOMEK)

Trent’s gaze cut to mine and stopped when his grays met my blues. The fading noise of Vicious barking at people to move along, and my father finally letting go of my arm to move toward Jaime and Dean—probably trying to gain both allies and sympathy—died down.

“I don’t like you,” Rexroth whispered under his breath, his voice harsh.

“I never asked you to.” I shrugged.

“You won’t be working here.” His arm brushed my shoulder, but I didn’t think it was by accident. I let loose a sugary smile, scanning his face and torso for no other reason other than to taunt him. “Good, you’ll be doing me a favor. My father is the one forcing me to work here. He’s pissed I turned down five Ivy League colleges. Remind me, Mr. Rexroth—which top tier university did you attend for your degree?”

The low blow was supposed to retrieve some of my lost dignity, but bile burned my throat, shotgunned from my stomach. Trent Rexroth was known in Todos Santos as an exhilarating success story, rising from the gutters of San Diego. He went to a shitty state college that accepted even the illiterate, working as a janitor on campus after hours. Those were given facts he’d recited himself in an interview for Forbes.

Had I really just tried to make him feel less worthy because he wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth? It made me sicker than wearing my mother’s designer garbs.
Trent smiled, leaning into my body, into my soul. His smirk was more frightening than any scowl, frown, or grimace I’d ever seen. It threatened to tear me apart and sew me back together however he pleased.

“Edie.” His lips were dangerously close to my ear. A delicious shiver moved down my spine. Something warm rolled inside of me, begging to unknot and flower into an orgasm. What was happening, and why the hell was it happening? “If you know what’s best for you, you will turn around and leave right now.”

I elevated my head to meet his gaze and showed him my version of a grin. I was born and raised in a world of intimidating rich men, and I’d be damned if I go down like my mother—addicted to xanax, Gucci, and a man who paraded her on his arm for a short, glorious decade before keeping her solely for public appearances.

“I think I’m going to go find my desk now. I’d wish you a good day, Mr. Rexroth, but I think that ship has sailed. You’re a miserable man. Oh, and one for the road.” I fished for a Nature Valley bar in my mother’s purse and plastered it to his hard, muscled chest. My heart slammed into my neck, fluttering like a caged bird.

I hurried after my father as he glided down the vast, golden-hued hallway, not daring to look back. Knowing I’d started a war and arrived unequipped. But I also knew something else that gave me a surfer’s rush—if I could slam the final nail in my employment coffin and make Rexroth vote against me, I’d be off the hook.

I had just the plan for it. All I had to do was act like a brat. Game on.

AUTHOR (AVTOR)


L.J. SHEN is an International #1 best-selling author of Contemporary Romance and New Adult novels. She lives in Northern California with her husband, young son and chubby cat.
Before she’d settled down, L.J. (who thinks referring to herself in the third person is really silly, by the way) traveled the world, and collected friends from all across the globe. Friends who’d be happy to report that she is a rubbish companion, always forgets peoples’ birthdays and never sends Christmas cards.
She enjoys the simple things in life, like spending time with her family and friends, reading, HBO, Netflix and internet-stalking Stephen James. She reads between three to five books a week and firmly believes Crocs shoes and mullets should be outlawed.

L.J. SHEN je pisateljica sodobnih romanc in NA romanov, ki je prodajana po celem svetu. Živi v Severni Karolini s svojim možem, mladim sinom in mačko.
Preden je ustanovila L.J. (čeprav misli, da je pisanje v tretji osebi trapasto) je potovala po svetu in pridobivala prijatelje na vsaki lokaciji. Prijatelji z veseljem povedo, da je slaba spremljevalka, ki vedno pozabi prijateljeve rojstne dneve in nikoli ne pošilja božičnih voščilnic. 

Sama uživa v preprostih stvareh kot so preživljanje časa s svojo družino in prijatelji, branje, gledanje HBO in Netflix-a ter internetno zasledovanje Stephena Jamesa. Bere tri do pet knjig tedensko. Verjame, da bi morali čevlje Crocs in frizuro mullets prepovedati.
