Bella Swan, a divorced adoption attorney, is relishing her time with her two hot and attentive boyfriends, Edward Masen and Garrett Keyes. Never in her wildest dreams had she ever considered being with two men, let alone two men who adored her as much as they do. Their relationship is perfection. With all new relationships, they are trying to navigate the ins and outs of being together. Their little bubble of sexual exploration is threatened when Bella is sent to New York City for a high profile adoption proceeding.
With a heavy heart, Bella flies out to New York to meet her new clients, close friends of Aro Volturi, her former boss. Carmen and Eleazar D’Amato are finalizing the adoption of a child that they fostered for almost a year and a half, but dealing with them is easy. Running into her ex-husband is not. He manages to appear everywhere once he found out that Bella was in New York. His new marriage has crumbled and his estranged wife has taken their child, hiding him away from James. His job is hanging by a thread and he now blames Bella for everything.
On a whim, Edward and Garrett fly out to New York to surprise Bella. She loses herself with them, but they had an audience. But, who and to what end?
“Everything is set up for Tuesday, Mrs. Baxter,” Bella said on her phone. “We’ll meet at the courthouse at ten and by lunchtime, Cole will be officially your son.” She listened as Mrs. Baxter prattled about complications that were not even a possibility. “Mrs. Baxter, relax. Cole’s birth mother signed over her parental rights when she was arrested and we waited the appropriate amount of time to find the birth father. I had my best private detectives looking. He’s gone. Or doesn’t want to be found. Trust me. Please?”
She hung up after Mrs. Baxter, finally took a breath and stopped fussing. Bella took off her glasses, rubbing her eyes. She was exhausted and cranky, wanting nothing more than to go home and cuddle with her men.
But, they had other ideas.
This week had gone on for far too long. Is it too late to cancel? She prayed that they would be amenable to canceling their plans.
Bella packed up her belongings and left her office at Volturi and Volturi Law Offices. She put her briefcase in the backseat, driving to her gorgeous home on Mercer Island. She saw Edward’s black truck in the driveway. She smiled, pulling into the garage. Edward always knew how to make a busy week better. A warm kiss, a tight embrace and some sensual love making. God, that sounds ideal. Carrying her bag into the house, she saw Edward sitting at the kitchen island, working on his laptop, creating a design for another client in her neighborhood for a kitchen, living room and powder room renovation.
“I love coming home and seeing you here,” she said, wrapping her arms around his waist.
“I love being here,” Edward replied, kissing her hand and saving his work. He closed the laptop, turning to face her. “Thank you for giving me a key.”
“You never gave back the key I gave you when you were working here, Edward,” she teased, stepping between his legs and kissing his lips.
