Katlyn Winters’s life changed the instant her husband was killed by a drunk driver. Now, a year later, she can’t put off returning to the workforce any longer. When she joins the architectural team at Bridgeport Graphics, Chicago’s number one design-to-build firm, she’s able to pretend she’s not alone in the world by keeping a picture of her husband and beautiful little girl on her desk. But as she climbs the corporate ladder, it becomes difficult to explain why her husband isn’t around to support her career, all while her feelings for her boss turn into something more than what’s allowed.
Billionaire Landon Bridgeport is impressed by Katlyn Winters’s work ethic and design skills. Even though she’s been out of the workforce for five years, he takes a chance and hires her on the spot. As she quickly rises in the ranks, winning more bids than any other architect in the firm, she also unwittingly weaves her way into his heart. The only problem is, she’s off limits. A picture on her desk of a beautiful family keeps her at arm’s length.
As Landon forces himself out of the office to work on his social life, Katie’s interaction with a male coworker in the office doesn’t add up. He feels compelled to keep her marriage safe while juggling a new relationship and a threatening lawsuit from a disgruntled ex-employee. Something must give as he slowly unravels the truth about Katie—and his love for her that he can no longer deny.
