Nedra Harris, a 23-year-old business executive, has experienced her share of heartache in her quest to find a soul mate. Just when she’s about to give up on love, she runs into Simeon Mathews, a gentleman she met in college years earlier. She remembers his warm smile and charming nature, but she soon realizes that Simeon possesses a dark side that will eventually make her life a living hell.
Donovon McNeil has been Nedra’s best friend and guardian angel since college. He secretly fell in love with her back then, but decided their friendship was too important to risk ruining. Over the years, Donovon’s feelings for Nedra have grown even stronger, and trying to move on with his life has been difficult. Concealing his love for Nedra from his current lover, Brea Jones, hasn’t been easy. Both she and Simeon are suspicious of the close friendship.
Donovon knew there was something odd about Simeon the moment Nedra introduced them. What he didn’t know was that Simeon would rather see Nedra dead than in the arms of another man.
