Weston Conrad is the best headhunter in the business. That handsome smile goes a long way towards convincing most people to trust him with their future.
I’m not most people. I’m his direct competition. And it doesn’t hurt to be just the kind of woman he’s been looking for.
I’m gonna flash you these legs, Weston Conrad.
I’m gonna wear low-cut shirts and micro-mini skirts.
I’m gonna dazzle you with wit and conversation and kiss those lips like they’re exactly what I’ve been waiting for.
So don’t hate me when you figure out my secret.
You understand, right? You’re Mr. Corporate and this is just business.

Weston takes off his tie and begins unbuttoning his shirt. My eyes open a little wider. I watch every move. The way his fingers flip each button loose. The way his tanned and muscular chest flashes me as the shirt comes apart. That stupid Corporate grin on his face.
I sigh with frustration just as he takes the whole thing off and starts going for his belt.
Will Weston Conrad strip naked to swim?
Oh, yeah. You bet your ass he will. I called him Naked Man back when we were together. He has a thing for it.
“Come on, Tori. Let’s swim. You don’t need a suit. I’ve seen your goods.”
“First of all,” I say, crossing my arms and maintaining eye contact as the pants come down, “I’m not ‘goods.’ Second of all, I’m not giving you the pleasure of seeing me naked after you’ve been such an asshole.”
“When was I an asshole?”
He’s kidding, right? “All the time.”
“I’m just truthful, Victoria. You just can’t handle the truth.”
“I’m tired of fighting—” But I stop talking. Because yeah, he still looks amazing in those black boxer briefs he’s partial to.
“Did you miss him?” West asks.
“Who?” I say, forcing myself to look up at his face.
I almost laugh, but catch myself just in time. “Weston—” But before I can get anything else out, he’s crossing the floor, I’m backing up, my hands are up, warning him to stay away, and I bump into the couch and fall back.
He stops in front of me, his goddamned bulge staring me in the face.
At least he’s not hard.
Ooops. Spoke too soon.
“Weston, stop it.”
“Come on,” he says, extending his hand. “We’re going to the beach.”
“I’m not getting naked with you.”
“I don’t need you naked. Your fucking skirt is so short you could wade in up to your thighs.” He shakes his hand at me, urging. “Come on.”
I close my eyes so I can stop staring at the bulge, stop imagining his hard cock and all the ways I’ve been intimate with it in the past, and take his hand, letting him pull me to my feet. His arm slips around my back and he pulls me into his chest. God, I can feel his fucking dick against my hips.
“Victoria,” he says in my ear. “You’ve missed me,” he says, switching to the other one.
I wait for what comes next. It’s a thing he always did with me when I was on the verge of something. Panic, or sadness, or whatever comes with all the things we went through.
He would stand behind me, both hands squeezing my shoulders. His mouth would go to work on my earlobe, and my neck, and my mouth. Then his fingers would dip down into my bra to squeeze my breasts and pinch my nipples.
We’d always have sex after that. Always. It drove me crazy.
But before I can say anything—No, we’re not doing that, or, Back off, mister, I’m not yours—he backs away and he’s heading for the door, tugging me along.
I sigh, missing his attention so much in that unused moment.
Mr. Corporate is the latest Mister on the chopping block. Someone is trying to bring the Misters down once and for all. Their lives have been anything but normal since the incident in college. The incident that almost got them prosecuted for rape. Each Mister has felt they were somewhat responsible for what happened many years ago. They are unaware of how the other Misters are involved. They were ordered not to talk about it with anyone, including with each other. Over ten years later they are being forced to confront the past to save their futures.
Each Mister holds an intricate piece to the puzzle. Someone is trying to destroy their lives. This time the Misters have much more to lose.
Weston Conrad’s life didn’t change much after the incident. He had an airtight alibi. His girlfriend was with him that night. He was able to move forward in life and pursue his career as a head hunter. He wasn’t able to hang onto his girlfriend. Their on again off again relationship has finally reached it’s expiration date.
Weston was recruited to hire a high profile executive. The finder fee is over seven million dollars. He thought he had the client in the bag. He didn’t count on his ruthless ex girlfriend vying for the same finder fee. Victoria will do anything to get this money, including lie, cheat, and steal. What she didn’t consider is that her feelings for Weston would change the way she does business.
As the two compete and end up stranded on a remote island during a hurricane, their priorities change. They are in survival mode. It is also quite clear that someone has set them up. Their lives are in even more danger than from the elements. Someone wants them dead.
This is when Mr. Corporate’s past comes into play.
There are two Misters to go before the truth becomes unraveled. It will be interesting to see who’s controlling the strings and why.
