Description from the publisher:
Can a man and woman be just friends? Abigail Jenkins is wondering just that.

Now that Edwin Santora has graduated from law school with honours, he could get a job anywhere he wanted.  Of all the places to land, why did he have to take a position with Abigail's small firm?  As if sharing a house with her irresistible ex wasn't bad enough, now it was the least of her concerns.  When Edwin's macho arrogance begins to seriously affect her dating life, Abigail starts to seriously reconsider their friendship; not that Edwin believes a man and woman can be just friends anyway.

After yet another date gone wrong and Edwin's fierce persistence, Abigail finds herself catching feelings.  When Edwin makes a friendly proposal, no-strings-attached, Abigail can't resist.  After some sexy role playing, she finds herself dangerously in love and wrapped back up in his powerful grip.  Little does he know that Abigail has a strict life plan for herself and has set out to see if Edwin is up for the challenge?  When Abigail finally puts their relationship to the test, will it pass with flying colours or will they give in to the mysterious forces trying to drive them apart?


Edwin and Abby have dated before, been lovers, bought a house together, but the timing was never right and they were just roommates.  After university graduation, Edwin knows what he wants.  He wants Abby.  She has never left his heart, and he wants her to return to his bed.  Edwin has never left her heart either, but she is afraid to be hurt again.  When Edwin proposes a no-strings-attached relationship, Abby gives in to her dreams, but she isn't ready to give up on her life-plan.  When she gives Eddy an ultimatum, will he follow his heart or allow rebelliousness dictate the course of their relationship?

This is Ms. Simpson's debut novel and it is self-published, so the writing is unpolished, but don't let that stop you from reading.  I loved this story and I'm looking forward to seeing where it leads.  The full trilogy is now available, so there will be no waiting to read Abby and Edwin's story from beginning to end.  There is also the question of the red glowing eyes that Abby sees when she's stressed.  Is she being stalked?  Perhaps from the grave?
