She nods and Lucas gives her a quick kiss. And tells her again. “I love you.”

Her hands frame his cheeks and those dark chocolate eyes he adores so much look intently into his. “Every part of you, Lucas,” she says. “Even the parts of you, you think are hard to love. I love.”

He squeezes his eyes shut briefly at the intense emotion that courses through him at the declaration. She snuggles in to him with another sigh and he wraps his arms around her.

Absolutely perfect.

Ash takes a deep breath, bracing herself.

A man she’s never seen before slips into the room and pulls a camera to his shoulder, lens focused on the hall he just exited. And then he turns the corner, entering the lobby with what she assumes is his client. The two men clasp hands quickly in a casual handshake.

Her stomach flips with a combination of nerves and desire. Lucas is relaxed, smiling, and just so insanely, heart-stoppingly attractive.

His dark blue gaze takes in the room, flicking right over her.

Then returns, laser focused and widening in shock. He freezes, the smile falling from his face. Turning abruptly back to the crew member he orders, “Turn off the camera.”

Oh Shit.

“What’s so urgent?” Lucas asks, interrupting Tanya and whatever task she’s absorbed in on her iphone.

She exhales dramatically and rushes to his side. Lucas frowns, Tanya isn’t usually dramatic. She and Krista are incredibly competent professionals. They know their shit and they don’t try to manipulate his ‘image’. As annoyed as Lucas can get with this aspect of his job, he has always recognized everything they and how lucky the show is to have them doing their PR.

She hands him her phone. He can tell she doesn’t like what she’s about to show him and steels himself. But whatever it is he knows he’ll fight to keep what he has. Whatever this is, it won’t take the life he’s worked so hard to build.

“We’ve got a problem,” she tells him.
