Brandi stared at the ring that Zach had bought her. Rented more like since she had to give it back at the end of their deal. Kendra had raved about how beautiful it was. Most of her girlfriends were too busy with their new families so it was nice to have a woman to share this with. Even if she knew it was all temporary. Since she was still determined to bring him down, it would happen.
Her snooping just had to be more discreet.
When she looked up, Zach was standing in his doorway. He had an odd look on his face. “Everything okay?”
“Yes. Would you like to go to dinner?”
“We are engaged so yes. I made reservations at Toscana.”
“You were able to get us a table?”
He shrugged. “Of course.”
“Zach, I’ve never been there. You must have some pull.”
“I helped the owner’s daughter get a condo that she wanted.”
“Is there no end to the favors you’ve done?” she asked.
“It’s good business, that’s all. I’m known as cutthroat, but it’s because I don’t take any crap from anyone. Not because I’m a jerk.”
She blinked. “Are you ready now?”
“I am if you are.”
“Let me freshen my makeup and I’ll be ready.”
