Brandi let that settle into Zach’s brain for a moment. She knew he would balk, but if he just heard her out he’d understand it was the best way.
Zach had gone a little pale and that made Brandi wonder if his feelings were a little more than he said they were. Her heart leaped and she stifled a smile because this titan of industry had wormed his way into her heart. She wasn’t ready to say it out loud.

It had been less about sex and more about connecting, which told her that he wasn’t lying about his feelings.
