In the heart of Taylor, hurt by love before, there comes a spark when he meets Becky, the quiet girl from the IT department. At first, he barely notices her, his heart still guarded from past pain. But as they cross paths more often, Taylor begins to wonder about her. Troubles arise from his past—his ex-wife Jane and a lingering fling named Debby—but Becky's gentle ways start to thaw his icy heart. Slowly, Taylor finds himself changing, guided by her warmth and kindness. Their journey isn't easy, but with Becky by his side, Taylor begins to mend his relationship with his daughter, Jadelle, too. Together, they face challenges, but their love grows stronger. In a beautiful twist of fate, Taylor and Becky find themselves saying "I do," expecting a new addition to their family. And Jadelle? Well, she becomes an important part of their loving story, showing that sometimes, the greatest love comes when you least expect it.


My eyes flew open. My heart was rapidly beating with fear. My bed sheets were soaked as I was drenched in sweat from the nightmare that constantly plagued my nights. You are the love of my life. I’ve never felt this way before about someone. You gave me hope—a hope I needed to get through life. When we’re apart, I’m empty inside and lonely. I thought you were the one who would save me from myself. I love you more than life itself, those are the words that always came to me in my dreams. I looked at the clock on the nightstand, and it was exactly 3:00 am. I got out of bed and walked to the bathroom. I had a hard time catching my breath as I leaned over the sink and then looked at myself in the mirror. I turned on the cold water and splashed my face, taking in a deep breath and closing my eyes.

I never told anyone why Jane left. I’ve kept this secret buried within me for the past Eighteen years. The only other person who knew was her sister, Drane. She promised she wouldn’t speak of it because she didn’t want people to think her sister would be an infidel.

I rubbed my face as I walked over and sat on the edge of the bed. I picked up my cell phone from the nightstand and saw a text message from Addison.

“Taylor, thank you for tonight. As usual, you completely satisfied me. I look forward to seeing you again for another round of tantalizing sex!”

 sighed and placed the phone back on the nightstand. I got up, put on my running clothes, and headed out the door for a run. Running always cleared my head, especially after having nightmares. I ended up running four miles in Central Park. Once my head was clear and I could think straight, I made a mental note to call Dr. Peters. It’s been a while since I’ve seen him, and I think it’s time that I start going back for some therapy sessions. I took out my cell phone, thumbed through my contacts, and texted Sarah.

“I need a stress release. Are you up for it?”

“Hi to you too, Taylor. Do you realize it's 5:15 am? Sure, I’m game.”

“Good, meet me at the penthouse in 30 minutes.”

“I can be there in 10min.”

“No, I said 30min. I need to shower first.”

“Yum, Tarylor, can I join you?”

“No thanks, I’d rather shower alone. 30 minutes, and don’t be late.”

I met Sarah through a business associate. Being newly divorced, she was more than willing to have casual sex with no strings attached.

I ran back to the penthouse and hopped in the shower to wash the sweat from my body before I f**ked her. I stepped out of the shower with a white towel wrapped around my waist. I walked into the bedroom, and she was already lying on the bed ready and waiting for me.

“Drop that towel and get over here before I change my mind,” she smiled.

I dropped the towel on the floor and walked towards the bed. “I promise you aren’t going anywhere until I’ve f**ked you every which way, Sarah.”

“Now that’s one promise that I know you can keep,” she grinned.

Rough sex is all I know. It’s all these women want, and who am I to complain? Keeping it quick and rough is the best stress relief for me, especially after a long hard day at the office or whenever the occasion arises.

“Thanks, you may leave now,” I told her.

“Taylor, it’s 6:30 am, so how about some coffee together before I go?”

I walked over to her as she was lying on the bed with only the sheet covering her nak*d body. I looked into her brown eyes.

“You know the rules, Sarah, now get dressed and go. I have to take a quick shower and head to the office.”

She got up from the bed. “Whatever, Taylor, it’s just coffee for f**k sake. Oh, and another thing, I’m going out of town for a couple of weeks, so don’t bother calling me for another stress relief.”

Some people often say that I’m too young to be the CEO of Diamond  Enterprises and that the pressures and demands will ultimately destroy me. As far as I’m concerned, I’ve already been destroyed emotionally.

Diamond Enterprises is my company and my sole purpose in life. It’s all I have, and it’s all I want.

Sure, I date a lot of women. What millionaire CEO wouldn’t? The only relationships I believe in are the sexual ones with no strings attached. The last thing I need in my life is some woman tying me down and then breaking my heart. That said, I’ve composed a list of rules for the women I see.

No sleepovers. Once our sexual encounter is over, you must get dressed and leave immediately. There are no exceptions.

No strings attached. There will never be anything more than just physical sex.

No calling or texting. If I want to see you again, I will contact you.

When in my presence, you will act and behave like a woman. I don’t tolerate childish behavior.

No threesomes. I like my women one at a time. No exceptions.

No condoms. I get checked once a month, and I’ve had a vasectomy. I expect the women I’m with to be clean as well. Proof may be required.

Date night will only consist of dinner and sex; nothing more, nothing less. There will be no hand-holding, walks, carriage rides, or movies. No exceptions.

I give this list to women before dinner to ensure they are fully aware of my expectations. If a woman has a problem with any of the rules, they are free to leave. Women are nothing but sexual creatures to me. I’ve been in love, and I never will be again. The person who decided my fate to become this way broke my heart herself because I couldn’t provide enough for her, and I can never let that happen again. I have a group of women that I see regularly. I sat at my desk and stared at the door, remembering that day.

“Mr. Taylor, there’s someone here to see you,” Alice spoke over the intercom. “She says it’s important and that you know her.”

I sighed. I didn’t have time for unannounced visitors who thought they could just come to my office and demand to see me.

“I’m very busy, Alice. Tell whomever it is that they’ll need to make an appointment. I don’t have time right now.

Suddenly, the door flew open as I looked up from my computer and nearly stopped breathing.

“I’m sorry, Mr.Taylor tried to stop her,” Alice spoke.

“It’s alright, Alice. Please shut the door.”

“Hello, Mr Tarylor. It’s good to see you;” the tall woman spoke. what the hell are you doing here?” my voice angered.

She slowly turned around and looked at me. I gulped as my heart started to beat a little faster. It was her eyes. She had the prettiest ice-blue eyes that I’ve ever seen. They had a clarity to them that reminded me of a beautiful aquamarine gemstone. They sparkled amongst the light that filtered through the kitchen windows. As much as they sparkled, they were filled with fear as she looked straight at me. I am Becky the new IT personnel she said I was told to come and see you by Mr. Raymond. Mr. Raymond is my favorite worker he has always been with Diamond Enterprises. I was told to solve a troubleshooting problem complained by some of your staff, I came to ask for your permission to check the I .T servers she said with a calm voice. You better be fast I said as I stood up and walked towards the door. Sir, I need to ask you some questions, you can ask Mr Raymond any questions you have, I don't have time for a chit-chat talk now excuse me.

I  walked to the door and opened it, motioning for Betty to step out.

Good morning, Alice. Do me a favor and clear my schedule for this afternoon. I have something that I need to do.”

“Yes, Mr. Diamond, I’ll get on that immediately.”

“Thank you, Alice,” I said as she left my office.

I pulled out my cell phone, dialed Dr. Peters, and made an appointment later that afternoon.

With the return of the nightmares, I figured it was about time. I finished up some paperwork, made a few business calls, and alerted Brian that I was leaving the office early and to come pick me up.

I stepped into the Limo and instructed Brian to take me to the penthouse, so I could pick up the Range Rover and drive myself to Dr. Peter’s office. I didn’t want him to know where I was going. I consider Brian one of my best friends. He’s been with Diamond Enterprises for the past ten years. He drove for my father and now he drives for me. Brian is in his early fifties, and he’s seen a lot from me in the past ten years. He’s always been there for me and even bailed me out of trouble a few times without telling my father. He’s like a second father to me as well as my confidant. I could always count on him to help me out if I needed it.

In return, I ensure he and his family are well taken care of.


“Long time no see, Taylor,” Dr. Peters said as he sat in the blue chair across from me. “I thought you’d given up coming here.”

“I haven’t given up, Dr. Peters; I’ve just been too busy to make an appointment,” I sighed.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Peters for a few years, and he’s the only other person who knows about Jane apart from my family. He’s an older gentleman, with salt and pepper hair and a medium build. I found him very easy to open up to. I suppose that’s why I continued seeing him for so long. I’ve tried other therapists, including women, but it became too complicated when they wanted to sleep with me.

“Tell me, Taylor, have you made any progress since our last visit?”

I leaned back and rested my elbow on the arm of the chair. “No, I haven’t, but as I told you before, I’m not interested in being in a relationship and risking being heartbroken again. I like my life just the way it is.”

He narrowed his eyes at me. “So, why are you here today?”
