Blurb

For a girl who lives in Tennessee, Sophia has always believed in love and happy endings. Not only in general happiness but with her long-term boyfriend, Michael who has moved to New York to further his studies, causing them to have a long-distance relationship. With Sophia putting her trust in Michael without a slight doubt, she ends up being a 'little' bit naive. Dimitri, a well-known and highly compensated hotel CEO has ditched love due to his bitter past experience. With his good-looks and charm, he has managed to sweep women off their feet and even hard enough to make them fall in love with him but never the other way around because for Dimitri . . . true love is hard to find. It's funny how one night can change everything. It's even funnier when she wakes up to find out that he has a son. So, how much funnier can it get when they end up living under the same roof?

Prologue

Five years ago . . .

″What the fuck?!″ I exclaim, my fists clenching in anger as my eyes remain focused onto the woman I vowed to love forever currently clinging onto a man I barely know.

Within seconds, I find myself making my way towards them before grabbing hard onto the man, pulling him onto the ground as my my fist land onto the side of his face—giving him a hard impact for him to immediately groan in pain with blood appearing near his lips. My head feels empty with the aching pain in my chest, making me act recklessly while I try to reduce the pain even if it might make me kill the man in front of me.

″Dimitri, stop. You’re killing him!″ Chloe shouts from the bed.

″Shut the fuck up, Chloe! Just shut the fuck up,″ I look up to see her looking at me in surprise, with both of her hands gripping tightly onto the sheets to cover her naked body as I feel the adrenaline rush in my veins to make me hurt the man in front of me as if he’s not hurt enough. With my fists continue to punch onto his face and his body, I find myself growing angrier and intense, as if someone else is controlling me to act this way.

Just like that, I pull him up to roughly push him against the wall, my eyes wandering down to see him bleeding in defeat with his right eye turning black as he spits out blood before coughing, both of his eyes staring back at me with the same amount of anger. ″Who do you think you are? Who the hell do you think you are?! Do you even know who she is?″ I say, through gritted teeth in order to hold myself back.

″She came to me, man. You were never there to fuck her good,″ He replies.

My eyes widen at the words that escaped his lips before continuing to release my anger towards the stranger in front of me, letting myself hear the screams and shouts coming from Chloe as she tries to make me stop but everything around me fades away, letting me listen to the sound of my own fists colliding with his skin, hearing the sound of his bones cracking as soon as I find my legs kicking his ribs. I find myself running my fingers through my hair before punching the wall near me, eyes focusing onto the man in front of me.

″Dimitri! Wait—″ Aidan calls out from behind to stop me.

″Why? Why would you do that to me? Why?!″ I turn to look at Chloe who has tears streaming down her cheeks as she continues to shake her head, ″What the fuck were you thinking?! I gave you everything, I gave you everything you wanted and I did all the things to make you happy but why the fuck would you go behind my back and fuck some other dude?!″ My voice raising with every word I speak, showing off anger as tears continue to blur my eyes.

″You were never here, Dimitri! You were never here for me, you were always busy and you were always working and I felt lonely but I’m not sorry for what I did. I’m glad you’re hurt,″ She speaks off, causing me to clench my jaw before blinking away the tears, feeling them glide down my cheeks without showing any signs to stop. ″Happy?″

″We have a son, for god’s sake. How can you be this selfish?″ I breathe out.

Both of her eyes remain onto me as her lips are tightly shut, leaving her to think of the mistake she made while I look back down at the unconscious man in front of me, bleeding and hurting before I stare down at my own hands, seeing them bruised and bleeding as well. My heart continues to ache at the sight of her which causes me to take off my wedding band, throwing it directly beside her.

I continue to glare at the woman I used to love with all of my heart, the woman that I gave everything in order to make her happy, the woman that I’d vowed and promised to love and cherish for the rest of my life but now they’re all just empty promises. She means nothing to me, not anymore.

Fuck you, Chloe. I’ll see you in court,″ I say before turning around, leaving the hotel room with Aidan slowly trailing behind me as blood drips down onto the carpet.
