“I had to mentally negotiate my way out of biting her neck for that look. Biting her neck, unbuttoning my fly, ** her while a wall of spices crashed around us. I saw it in brutal oil paint like the exquisite disaster we were, a field of broken glass at our feet and a cloud of color and scent rising around us.”

Smart, successful, and sitting pretty at the top of her game, Neera Malik has it all figured out.
Save for the small issue of Gustavo Guillmand.
The artist with a cult—and Instagram—following has a problem and it’s not his preference for shirtless selfies.
No, he has an attitude problem, a minding his own business problem, an infuriatingly sexy problem.
They can’t stand each other and they can’t stay away from each other.
“You’re such a good girl,” I said, my words little more than a hiss as I spoke directly to the tender skin below her ear. “So *ing good, aren’t you?”
“She didn’t allow herself much but she allowed me far more. And now that I was here, I intended to take everything I wanted. Not because I was an egotistical bastard—despite Miz Malik’s impression of me—but because she wanted me to take everything she had to give. Hell, if she’d meant to cut me off, she would’ve left. She wouldn’t be here, glaring at spices, waiting for me.”
