Loved None But You : She has no second chance with him.
Anne lost Robert five years ago when she said no to his proposal, and there’s no going back now. Even though rejecting him was the hardest thing she’s ever done. Even though she’s never gotten over him. Even though he’s moving right upstairs.
He’s back for at least a month, recovering from an injury before he returns to the Navy. And he hasn’t forgotten or forgiven the way she chose her career over him. But there’s no sense in trying to work through their raw feelings–in or out of the bedroom–because if they get close to each other again, the same painful parting might happen a second time.
But getting close to Robert is exactly what Anne can’t stop doing.
“When she looked up, Krystal was giving her that sympathetic smile again.
It was all Anne could do not to snap her teeth in annoyance. “This is a great thing for us. It’s one of the biggest campaigns we’ve had. And if we can hold off on starting this until the end of April, I’ll be happy to work on it.”
“They want to start right away.”
“Then Cath and Becky can work on it. They’re just as good as I am. You promised I wouldn’t have to travel for at least a month, and this would require me to spend half the month in Portland.”
“They asked for you specifically.”
Anne swallowed over a pressure in her throat. This wasn’t the first time she’d been promised some downtime and then had it taken away.
It was the seventh time in six years.
And it was more than just the travel. It was the absolute proof that she was working for someone who didn’t care about her well-being in any real way.
She kept her voice calm as she said, “I really don’t want to do it, Krystal. We’ve talked about this over and over again. I didn’t take this job to do so much traveling. We have plenty of local clients I can work with for a while.”
“I understand. But I need you this time.”
