Independent ~ Confident ~ Misunderstood.
A woman with heart when you least expected it.
Jaded picks up two months after the conclusion of A Heart Not Easily Broken as Yasmine struggles with life after learning the truth about her fiancé. Determined to avoid romance at all cost, she throws herself into the one thing that makes her happy—fashion.
All is well until she finds herself attracted to a man who is against relationships as much as she is.
Why did he pop into my head?
Well, he was the first man I’d spent time with in months, and he didn’t have any attachments. He also wasn’t looking for a relationship.
He was handsome enough, and I imagined outside of his work attire, in a nice suit, he’d fit the bill.
I could imagine spending a few hours with him. After talking during lunch and the evening spent with him and his mother, there was no doubt he was intelligent. I enjoyed conversing with him. We could spend the evening together in a roomful of people and keep each other entertained.
At the end of the night, we would shake hands, say good night, and expect nothing in return.
Or, would they?
