But that plan didn't include Layla, the hopeful bartender who walked in for an interview. He knows that as an employee this alluring blonde is off-limits, but he can't fight the undeniable force of attraction that pulls him toward her.

Emotions collide full force, and they can no longer turn a blind eye to what their hearts are telling them. But can their passion survive when Eli can no longer promise the one thing Layla asks of him? Will everything change?
