“Lead us not into temptation…”
Dr. Will Montgomery had already given into his temptations.
He’d tasted the forbidden fruit, again and again for months.
Despite the obstacles in his way, he claimed the beautiful Charlotte Pierce and fell head over heels in love.
She was finally his.
But a stolen love, a forbidden love— comes at a price.
And in the aftermath of their affair, Will finds himself backed into a corner desperate for an escape from the chaos.
Chaos that threatens to destroy him and reveal the secrets he’d kept hidden.
Secrets that may just cost him everything.
And if there’s one thing Dr. Montgomery should have learned by now is the truth always comes out.
*Bittersweet Addiction is the final part of the Bittersweet Duet.*
I am so fucked.
My feet are pounding the pavement, the sweat pouring out of me as I run the familiar trail at the ungodly hour of four am. I couldn’t sleep, my mind racing a mile a minute at what I did yesterday.
What I did with Charlotte Pierce.
I kissed her.
After three hours of tossing and turning, I threw the covers off me and decided to go for a run, hoping that the stress over sleeping with my married patient would melt away.
It is not working.
I knew I should have just made a drink.
I push myself well into mile four, my lungs on fire with the speed at which I’m flying through the park and yet, I can’t stop.
If I don’t stop, it didn’t happen. If I don’t stop, it didn’t happen.
Focus on the pain, Will. Focus on trying to get the air into your lungs and not the ache in your dick that comes every time you think about Charlotte.
Her sweet smile.
I close my eyes. FUCK. She tastes like sin. Pure sex wrapped in a white satin bow that I’d had the great pleasure of unwrapping with my teeth. I worshipped at the altar of Charlotte Pierce’s body for hours in my office yesterday. No inch of skin was left unkissed, untouched, unfucked.
I knew it. I knew I should have turned Charlotte and her husband away. Refused to counsel them, made up some reason why I wasn’t the right fit, then recommended someone else. The second I saw those eyes and she shot me that smile, I should have walked away. The second that she began to speak and I felt my heart breaking out of the block of ice that had been surrounding it for years, I should have told them I couldn’t ethically be their counselor.
I had compassion for people, and the empathy that was required in my line of work. But that only went so far. I never let anyone in, due to things I learned as a marriage counselor: people are selfish and I wasn’t willing to put my heart out there just to have it eviscerated.
I’d done that for years and it almost killed me.
Enter Charlotte Pierce; she has the warmest disposition, the sweetest heart, and is one of the most insanely gorgeous women I’ve ever met. I let her in. Somewhere between her mouth on my balls and her ass in my hands as I fucked her on the leather sofa where she sat with her husband twice a week, I had let her in.
And now, I am fucked.

“I was in a relationship with two men and neither were giving me up.”
That thought flashed through Charlotte’s brain like a bright neon light as she followed her husband out of her marriage counselor’s office.
The office where she’d sat twice a week as she tried to repair the glaring problems in her marriage.
The marriage that she’d fought hard to save to a man that wasn’t fighting alongside her. She’d been lied to, ignored and used as a pawn to climb his ladder to success. Charlotte was broken, not just her marriage.
But, then she met Dr. Montgomery and everything changed.
They say love is patient and kind of course, but what happens when that love comes at the cost of everything?
Love was a force that took no prisoners when it decided to strike and Charlotte had been hit—hard.
By a man that wasn’t her husband.
By the very man who was supposed to save her marriage.
