Victor Matthews was too young to know what his grandfather meant when he said that sometimes loving a woman is hurt and disappointment, but it stuck with him. Maybe because for Victor it turned out to be true.
That’s when he saw her.
Poise, elegance, and grace; she was absolutely phenomenal. And when their eyes connected, he felt something powerful between them. And when their eyes met, and the intensity of the look they shared, Victor knew that she felt it too.
Only problem: she was with her man.
Natasha Edwards was moved when she saw Victor. The way he looked at her made her think about things that a woman in a committed relationship shouldn’t be thinking about. She was involved with Lloyd, a very successful man who enjoyed the fact she was beautiful, smart, more than willing to satisfy his every sexual desire, and able to talk to his peers when they went out. He was more concerned with Natasha looking the part, and fit the role of his woman, but Lloyd couldn’t appreciate her for who she really was. Convinced that in time her relationship with Lloyd will get better, Natasha resolved herself to the fact that she was taken, so thoughts of Victor should be not on her mind.
But fate steps in and they meet again and despite the heavy vibe between them, she denies it and tries her best to rid herself of thoughts of Victor. Unable to accept that he can’t have her, Victor retreats to the only position available to him. “I would at least like to be your friend.”
