We come from different sides of the tracks.

But we have one thing in common—we both work hard for what we want.

Even though I try my damnedest to keep my heart closed up, there’s something about her that commands me to snatch her up and steal her breath.

To let her fully into my life, no matter how different our backgrounds are.

Her rich father is helping her open a restaurant and she’s hoping to serve some of the lobster I’ve caught to her new customers. I’m all for it.

The electricity between us has me taking one step back and three forward.

This is the woman I want beside and beneath me for the rest of my life.

But her father thinks I’m riffraff. And he just might be right.

Maybe if I just keep things professional, which is almost impossible.

Heat blazes in and out of the kitchen as we try to work together, and I’ve got one thing on my mind.

Owning every part of her.

No matter what her family or anyone else thinks about it.

This woman is my uptown girl.
