Mark is dealing with his mother's cancer and at the same time trying to put the fires out in his businesses. He also has to deal with his rendezvous with his gallery's manager, Crystal.
Crystal is very different than Rebecca. She is independent and not what Mark usually goes for.
He's bemused by his attraction towards her.
I was very pleased with this novella. I wasn't a huge fan or Mark, because I love Chris but now that I'm able to be in his head, I'm liking him a lot.
As a reader, you're able to feel his pain towards loosing Rebecca and his love towards his family. He is a great son.
His interaction with Crystal and his lack of control in their relationship is intriguing.
I really can't wait for the next book.
