No one tells Shane Williams what to do. His world. His rules. Which is why, when he was eighteen, he ran away home to pursue his dream of making a name for himself outside of small-town Georgia. Ten years later, he is one of the hottest Creative Directors on the East Coast and the majority shareholder in a digital media firm in Charlotte. When he decides to expand his start-up, Shane leaves his business partner in charge of the hiring process. He doesn’t want anything to do with paperwork. That is why his employees only know him as the Head of Creative at Lambda Digital. Handing over the business portion of his company to his trusted friend and long-time business partner, and keeping his true identity as founder a secret, has its perks. Shane is about to find out one of its flaws.

Little does Rose know, fate has other things in store for her.
