From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Laurelin Paige comes a new story in her Man In Charge series…
Brett Sebastian is the very best kind of friend.
Who else would get me a job at one of the biggest corporations in America?
And hook me up with his uber-rich cousin to boot?
And let me cry on his shoulder every time said cousin blows me off?
Okay, it’s pretty obvious that Brett cares about me in a different way than I do for him, but he seems fine with how things are, and our friendship works.
Until one fateful night when I’m mooning over his cousin, and Brett utters four words that should make me happy for him, should make me relieved, should balance out our uneven relationship:
“I met a girl.”
Suddenly my world is crashing down around me, and I’m forced to ask myself—am I only interested in Brett now that he’s taken?
Or have I been looking at the wrong man all along?

5 Star Read!!I devoured this Novella in one setting! I loved Eden and Brett! They are a force to be reckon with. With the love they have for the years of being friends, it finally blooms into so much more! The chemistry was ready to bubble over. The heat factor will punch you in the gut! I felt like I was reading a full novel. You get the beginning and the end, and the best in between. There was low angst, but some drama buts it head in. I love the Man in Charge books and can’t wait for more!!
ExcerptHow may I help you?” I asked when she finally crossed over to me because I wasn’t going to scream at her from several yards away, no matter how lost she looked. “Yes, I have an appointment with Scott Sebastian.” The maliciousness I’d thought I’d seen must have been imagined. Now all I sensed was friendly professionalism with maybe a trace of nervousness. “Tess Turani with Conscience Connect. Ten a.m.” I pulled up Scott’s calendar, realizing this was the first time I’d looked at it all day. In fact, I’d barely looked at it all week. In the past, I would have had each hour memorized, searching for the best times to pop into his office with made-up paperwork to sign or a question that I already knew the answer to. I really was over him, wasn’t I? I’d spent my energy this week thinking about Brett instead, but pining for him looked a lot different than pining for Scott. I’d tried very hard to act natural around him, like the night we’d spent together and his follow-up rejection hadn’t affected me in the least. He needed time to see that I wasn’t into Scott anymore, and hard as that was for me to give, time was what he’d get. My surprising self-discipline had kept me from stalking his calendar. Which was why, when I didn’t find Tess Turani on Scott’s, I had to do a search for her name to find she was on Brett’s. “Oh, there you are. You’re not meeting with Scott; you’re booked with Brett.” My ribs felt tight. As if there was something lodged in between them. He’d called up earlier to tell me where he’d be for his pitch meeting today, but he hadn’t given any indication that it was with a woman. A young, attractive, big-eyed, beautiful-skinned woman. Well, hello, Green-Eyed Monster, my old friend.
