Every look at him caused Celeste to weaken a bit more.
Stephen was a rich playboy who was probably going to lead her on and dump her as soon as he got bored with her. His brother Andrew thought she was a gold-digger. His mother and sister liked her even less than Andrew did. She couldn’t afford to keep doing this. If she fell for him, fell hard the way she knew she was going to, he was going to shatter her heart into a million pieces. But when he asked her to go away with him for the weekend, somehow she couldn’t tell him no.
What was it about Stephen that made it so impossible for her to walk away?
If his family hadn’t butted in, Stephen might have been content to let things with Celeste play out at their own pace. After their interference, though, he’d had no choice but to make a bold move and invite her for a weekend away together. He’d intended to give her some time to get used to the idea of them begin together outside of the office and promised her there would be no expectations this weekend.
Stephen was pretty sure he was going to break that promise before Sunday.
