I’ve always known she was too good for me, but that never stopped me from wanting her.
And then I finally had her for one night.
A night I don’t remember.
I figured I’d blown my shot.
But now she’s walked back into my life, and this time, I have the upper hand. I want my second chance.
Will she be able to see the man beneath this ink?
Growing up on the streets can usually mean that your life is sure to be filled with crime and pain. For Constantine, the life he lead during foster care led him straight to the door of every child’s dream. A family that truly wanted to adopt him. Despite his family’s wealth, Constantine was always regarded by those in the neighborhood as ‘that foster kid’. Never worthy of living in their world. Each moment of proving himself another strike against him from those that couldn’t see beyond the wealth that they possessed.
Con had a weakness in this world of riches. A princess in this world of wealth and all of its trappings. Vanessa was the girl from school that Con lusted over for so many years. A dream among the oodles of folks that weren’t willing to extend kindness to an ‘outsider’. Then one drunken filled night, Con’s dream came true. A night with the Princess that had haunted him for years. There was just one problem. Con was too drunk to remember anything about that night. Something that has fueled his desire for a repeat performance.

Three weeks of her time in exchange for the deed to a piece of land that is a thorn in Vanessa’s side.

Remembering each and every detail of their one night together, Vanessa is struggling to find any reason to keep Con at arms length.
With other forces in play, the two will quickly discover that their relationship will unlock mysteries that surround their pasts and their future. Causing them both to question whether an actual romance is even in the cards.
