A few minutes later, the bell ringing on the door to the shop was a welcome sound. She expected to see their employee, Sydney, but Tiffany dropped the pile of folded towels she’d been carrying when she saw who was standing in the foyer of The Beauty Box. The smug look on the man’s face made her stomach churn—both anger and fear crashing in on her.
“What the hell are you doing here? Get out now before I call the cops!” she yelled as she stalked toward the tall man, waving her arm and pointing at the door. His expensive suit may fool others, but she knew the truth about the asshole hidden underneath.
“Tiffany, baby, you’re looking as hot as ever. Although you should really lose the smock. It does nothing for showing off that curvy figure of yours.”
“Cut the shit, Jake. You aren’t welcome here. Get out.” She felt all eyes in the salon turning her way as she was uncharacteristically rude to a patron.
“Is that any way to greet an old friend?” His devious smile highlighted his perfect, white teeth.
“We’ve never been friends.”
“Aw, that hurts. And here I thought you’d have learned by now how important I am to a certain someone in your life.” His veiled words brought her fear to the forefront, because she knew he still had the power to destroy more than one person in her life.
Grateful her best friend had gone to the back of the salon for supplies, Tiffany was desperate to get Jake Davenport to leave before he saw Bri.
“You’re as delusional now as you were years ago. Bri hates you, just like I do. And lucky for her, she’s not here so you can take your sorry ass out and don’t bother coming back.”
Jake’s smile didn’t fade, but when he reached up to take his sunglasses off, the chilled ice of his blue eyes was anything but friendly. Tiffany shivered as if that icy gaze could lower the temperature around him.
“That’s a naughty girl, Tiffany. You shouldn’t lie to me like that.”
He held his hand up, finally letting his smile slip. “Don’t bother. I know Bri is here. She’s in the back.” He paused, nodding in that direction before letting a small smile return. “I’ll wait.”
“No, you won’t. If you don’t leave in the next thirty seconds, I’m calling the police.”
He moved like a ninja, grabbing her biceps and pulling her against him so fast it took her breath away. Tiffany struggled to free herself from his grip, but Jake overpowered her to whisper against her ear. “Don’t make a scene. We both know you aren’t gonna call the police. If you do, I’ll be forced to share a few special video tapes I’ve been keeping secure in my safe. You wouldn’t want that to happen, would you?”
She’d expected the threat. She’d lived with it for several years now. It didn’t make it any easier to keep her heart from thumping out of her chest. “You don’t scare me anymore, Jake. I’m done letting you blackmail me into silence.”
“We’ll just have to see about that, won’t we?”
Everyone has a dark secret from their past… hers just forced his way back into her life.
Brianna’s moment of weakness cost her everything but she’s not giving up.
She’ll do anything… anything… to convince her husband to give her a second chance.
Even if it means facing her demons and finally accepting the darkness which lies within.
