Make Me Forget by Beth Kery: Jacob Latimer is a rich, sexy, mysterious, paranoid, and very private tech genius. He’s avoided anyone discovering the truth of his past and exactly how he’s achieved his success. He overcame a rough childhood and became very successful under circumstances that some question. Harper McFaddan is insatiably curious, which has served her well in her very successful career as a reporter. After her parents death, she’s looking for a change of pace.
After a chance meeting, Harper is drawn into Jacob’s world. She feels this unexpected connection and wants to delve past his boundaries. Harper sees another side to the enigmatic billionaire; she sees him as being generous, caring, solicitous, but also vulnerable at times. Jacob is drawn to Harper despite knowing that she’s trouble for him.
“I don’t like complications.”
“And you don’t think I’ll give you any?” she wondered in amazement.
“I think in your case, the complications are unavoidable,” he replied, his voice deep and rich and weighty in the still night air.
Jacob and Harper have sizzling chemistry. Even as Jacob and Harper become closer, she finds that he remains closed off about his past. Jacob will question her about her own past, but he refuses to exchange histories. It doesn’t help that he tends to run hot and cold, leaving Harper confused about their relationship and her place in his life, even as he pushes her boundaries.
“Would you like me to go easier on you?”
“No,” she said, shaking her head. Her smile faded. “Of course I’m wondering about it. I don’t really know how the mind of a brilliant, billionaire software magnate works.”
“Neither do I. Is there a handbook?”
