I am quite near to the end of reading this book and I have already shared several great extracts.
However, I couldn’t finish the story without revealing just a few more of those lovely ‘teaser’ lines with you all!
This is a meme for all you page surfers out there!

Judge Pielmeier ended the court day as soon as Vittorio rested her case. After the jury left the courtroom, Toolan’s face lit up in a broad smile.
“That was amazing,” he said to Gwen.
“It was,” she agreed. “I think Benjamin completely neutralized Hannah as a witness.”
“You want to know what a sap I am, Gwen?” He didn’t give her time to respond. “I still love her. Can you believe that? After all this time, after hearing that she doesn’t love me anymore, that she thinks I took advantage of her in some way, I am still in love with her.”
“I don’t think that makes you a sap, Jasper. It makes you a romantic.”
He laughed. “You always know the exact right thing to say, Gwen. I take it that’s because you’re a romantic too.”
Even though Gwen had had very limited client contact in her career, she knew that being a lawyer was like being a therapist. It was all about the client, all the time. You didn’t bring in your own life, even to make a point. So she smiled but didn’t otherwise respond to Toolan’s comment. She was saved from having to do so by Ethan’s approach to discuss the evening’s agenda.
If she had responded, however, Gwen would have told Toolan that she didn’t recognize him as a romantic because she was one herself. To the contrary, she was the least romantic person she knew. After all, she’d given up the love of her life because she was afraid it might hurt her career.
She had a flashback of Will’s smile.
What is he doing now? Does he ever think about me? All the time, like I think about him? Does he miss me? If he does, is it the way I miss him?

Just to help you get all those lines into some context – here is the book’s premise…
A MATTER OF WILL – (The Premise)
Will Matthews came to Wall Street with hopes and dreams of hitting it big. But things have not been going as expected. He’s on the verge of being fired when he meets the devilishly mysterious and fabulously wealthy Sam Abaddon.
Winning Sam’s business answers Will’s prayers, catapulting the young stockbroker into the privileged world of money and luxury. Not only that, but Will also has met his dream girl, ambitious attorney Gwen Lipton.
All at once, it seems as if Will’s life couldn’t get any better. And it doesn’t.
When Will witnesses a shocking act of violence, his charmed new existence is revealed to be a waking nightmare as the truth about his benefactor—and his own complicity in criminal conduct—becomes devastatingly clear. As the noose draws tighter, Will faces an impossible choice: feast upon the poisonous fruit of his bloody business or defy his patron and face dire consequences.
Then again, maybe there’s a third option…
