- SYNOPSIS -
High Powered Attorney, Mason James is a formidable force, both inside and outside the courtroom. His client list is full of rich and powerful people, who bend the law for their own gain. He exercises control in every part of his life, and has a reputation for being a ladies man. He lets few get close to him, and fewer see who the real Mason James is.
Amelia Wells, is a shy girl who has lived a sheltered life. Her over protective parents are the center of her world. A single event from her past, haunts her and makes her protect her heart, refusing to let anyone past the wall of steel that she has erected.
When Amelia comes crashing into Mason’s life, literally, he is thrown by this seemly ordinary girl. She is nothing like the women Mason is used to, and the fact that she doesn’t fall at his feet, just makes him more determined to have the beautiful, Ms. Wells.
As he and Amelia grow closer, Mason begins to question his life and the people he works for. He knows he needs to make huge changes in his life, if he and Amelia are to ever have a future. But making the changes turns out to be a lot harder than he first though.
How far will Mason go to protect the woman he loves? Will he and Amelia ever be able to find their happy ever after? Can she become his all-time love?

- EXCERPT -
A couple of minutes later he found himself standing outside the little book shop, peering through the window.
His breath caught when he spotted her sitting behind the counter, curled over a book, a strand of her long chestnut hair between her fingers as she twirled it absentmindedly.
She was as beautiful as he had remembered, maybe even more.
He watched her closely as she flicked the page. He wondered what she was reading.
Suddenly she ran the tip of her tongue across her bottom lip. It was probably the most erotic thing Mason had ever seen.
His cock immediately hardened as he thought of her lips on him. He wondered what it would be like to kiss her.
Jesus, snap the fuck out of it Mace, he groaned to himself. You are even starting to think like a chick.
A customer in the shop walked up to the counter and Amelia looked up and smiled at them, a genuine, real smile. She listened to whatever the person was saying and then laughed. She stood up and led the customer to a shelf. Reaching up, she took a book down and handed it to the woman. She waited while the woman flicked through it and then looked up and smiled. Amelia smiled back once again, then turned and returned to her seat behind the counter. She was a genuine, good person.
And I would destroy her, Mason thought bitterly. He knew she didn’t belong in his world. She deserved someone nice, who could be the man she needed.
With one last look, he turned and headed back to his office. He needed to let her go. They could never happen.
I should stick to blonde horny waitresses, he thought as he walked quickly back to his office. Vapid girls that had no class and very little brains. Unlike Ms. Wells, who was a class above the rest.

" Mason stared at Amelia, unsure of how she was going to react to him being there. The look on her face told him, she was completely thrown to see him sitting her parents restaurant. For the first time since he he walked into the restaurant, hell since he climbed into his car and keyed the address into his GPS, he thought this may have been a mistake."
Manhattan is the scene of this romantic story and begins with defense attorney Mason James. Hard edged and driven with a troubled past. He deals with the rich and powerful. Women want him, but he doesn't let them get too close. Looking down on the rich and needy, fake women that would be happy to have him. Coming from a recent bad experience with a woman who had serious issues. It nearly cost Mason his life but he's wanting to be back in the game of love. Understandably leery of the women he comes in contact with. Admiring his best friend/brother Andrew's marriage from afar. Unsure if that lifestyle of married with family is for him.
Then Ameila comes into his life. Amelia Wells, book store worker, wannabe writer, sweet, naive, protective of her own heart for good reasons. Can Mason break through to her? Is she the one for him? Mason knows if he is to have her he'll need to change his own nefarious behavior. Can he? Is she worth it? Is he worth it? What does this mean to Amelia's life and the things that she is afraid of? The reasons she's protecting her heart so fiercely are traumatic. Mason finally wants something he's not wanted before. He has to find a way to get it and the girl but at what cost?
Sadly, while one side of the family is supportive, others, including outsiders, are not. Some surprising turns here that will keep you turning the pages. They'll have some real hurdles if this is going to work. Each is willing to give up some major things to make this work out. They're going to need each other in so many ways. Such a sweet story with moments of hard reality. There were a few shocking things that just shocked me and had me in tears. I couldn't read fast enough to find out how they'd be resolved or even if they could be.
I Love this book. Sweet and passionate. Well written characters that you feel you know and are comfortable with right away. There was a time or two I wanted to reach into this book and shake Mason and a couple others! You'll have to read it and find out why. This book is going to be my "All Time Love" for a long time to come.
Thank you to Beverly Hollowed for allowing me to read an ARC.
