Never again would Jason Cartwright let himself lose his mind for a woman. No, he had always equipped himself to look out for number one, and he didn't plan to compromise that principle again. When he had made an exception to his self-serving policies, Jason had nearly lost his job, failed in his personal objectives, and even lost the girl - Jason never lost the girl. Apparently, caring more about her than he did about himself cost him more than he could stand to lose. From the moment the woman he loved had turned her back on him, he determined that he would not risk investing himself in such a way again.
Life, though, seemed resolved against him. It did not matter what defenses Jason set up against future vulnerabilities; his personal preference mattered little.
In a matter of days, Fate had pulled out all the stops to disarm him, and Jason's confident independence found itself poised to suffer its final death-blow.
