Jack Gordon is Ann Arbor's most delectable bachelor. At age thirty-five, he's made millions as a top-selling Ann Arbor real estate broker and has the right connections to close a deal by any means necessary. With his rugged good looks and compelling personality, he has a virtual black book most men would kill for and he uses it often, never settling for one woman for very long. Sara Thornton, a rookie in the real estate game, has fast-tracked herself to the top of the Ann Arbor market. The one thing she knows for sure, she will not join the Jack Gordon groupies in her company, no matter how tempting that might seem. She watched as Jack unfolded his tall frame out of the Corvette and walked around to reach into the passenger’s seat. It struck her that she had never seen him in anything but a suit, or at least dress pants, shirt, and tie, as she admired his ass in the dark jeans. ” He made his way to the front door. He wore a plain burgundy t-shirt, jeans that hugged his front as nicely as his rear, and driving shoes. Sara watched as he walked out of that room and took in at the high cathedral ceilings made of light ash wood. Then he whistled, picked up his grocery bag, and walked into the kitchen complete with new gleaming stainless steel appliances and white tile floor.
Two steps from the hallway of elevators on the -21st floor of 666 No. Hope Street, he looked up. You never look up in a place that likely to have other humans, was his rule of thumb, but desperation had once again set Charlie, or John or whoever... She was beautiful, because everyone is beautiful, he thought, to ease the guilt, preparing to spew out of his holes, from endlessly masturbating to toy-like women being sexually humiliated or dominated, and to avoid the emptiness of the truth. He covered his mouth, then realized that these were only thoughts, and thoughts didn’t make you a bad person, actions did. He liked making people smile, feeling slightly responsible for making the world a better place, despite knowing that this wasn’t possible, but, even more so, because he wanted people to like him. So desperately so, that he found himself easily manipulated by nefarious types, despite foreseeing the outcome, preferring the consequences of bad decisions to the consequences of amplifying his already dangerously destructive…. He’s smiling at me, she thought. This was the simplest thought Jane, or Judy, or whoever the fuck, all that matters is the things she wanted felt terribly distant, had all day.

Sara Thornton, a rookie in the real estate game, has fast-tracked herself to the top of the Ann Arbor market. The one thing she knows for sure, she will not join the Jack Gordon groupies in her company, no matter how tempting that might seem. Jack Gordon thought he’d finally made it. He had a wildly successful career, money in the bank and even returned to his life as Dom, putting an end to a string of unfulfilling sexual encounters. Now that he's made the ultimate commitment to Sara Thornton, he believes all is right in their world. Sara struggles with her intense need for Jack and her desire for less volatility in her busy life, two goals which appear to be mutually exclusive. Given Sara’s history, easing back into the comfortable status quo becomes easier than fighting a war with the one person who should be her safe haven.
