Simon has been watching Kara for a while. He isn’t sure how to approach her or what to do about it, but when he sees her coming home one evening, in clothing that isn’t her usual and almost passes out on the street, he doesn’t think any further. He takes her into his home and has a doctor look at her. Turns out she has worn herself ragged from working while attending nursing school and trying to keep her head above water. She thought she had gotten over the flu but it turns out it was just a temporary respite. The doctor orders bed rest and time off work to recover, which Kara cannot afford. But she is not given a choice as Simon has already called in for her (it turns out Kara works for his mom) and he demands that she stay in bed.
He sends his assistant over to Kara’s house to retrieve what she will need for a few days but it turns out that she has been evicted. Her roommate was taking her money but not paying the rent and had been in the proceedings of eviction for a while. Nothing of hers was left except for a few items. How would she be able to stay in school? The thought of having to quit while she saved up money to return was a heavy weight on her.
Simon offers to assist her by allowing her to stay with him in his spare room. He has a lot of room and he wants to see her rested and able to focus solely on her school work. One condition of his is that she is not allowed to work, just focus on her school work. While Kara does not want to accept his offer, she agrees to it. But it turns out Simon has one more condition, one night with her. She can pick the night.
Will Simon be able to control his wanting for Kara until she asks for the night? Will Kara ever ask for that night?
I like the premise of this book but I wonder how realistic it is. Granted, most people do not read stories like this for reality, they read them as a way to escape from reality.
