This is a story about a smart, ambitious girl and the men who help her achieve her dreams…or dare to stand in her way.

Fresh out of college, Lauren Kemp is a country girl who moved to New York City with big dreams. She knows she must fight for the success and respect she deserves in the male-dominated tech industry but as the backbone of the fashion startup StyleSpur, Lauren feels she’s in the right spot. Work hard, ignore my creepy boss’ sexual harassment, and I’ll make it, she believes.

That is, until a chance dinner with billionaire Damon Kael throws all her plans out the window. The intense entrepreneur is able to look right through her and pinpoint exactly what she wants…success. He offers to mentor her, with the aid of a cryptic book, but does his kindness come with ulterior motives? With his guidance, Lauren may reach dizzying heights she never thought possible but at what cost?

Keeping her professional-for-now relationship with Damon a secret from her boyfriend Nick, Lauren must find a way to balance her career and love life. If she isn’t careful, she may lose everything while reaching for her dreams.


“I thought I would give this a quick read before I fell asleep then found myself propping my eyelids open with toothpicks because I couldn’t turn out the light until if finished it. I’ve read other books in this genre but have not found one with a sense of humor along with the love story, steamy scenes and cliffhanger. This book has it all. So well written, too. Now there’s the bonus.” – Helen C.

“I really enjoyed this book. It was nice to read a book that was not all about the romance , but followed a young woman on a path to becoming a working woman in her field, and the tribulations that come along the way. Can’t wait to read the next books in the series” – Goodreads reviewer

“5-stars! While Lauren is so sweet you want to be her best friend Ali and just hang out. Nick is a great guy who makes you want to screw him six degrees from Sunday and go back for more. These two make you want them to stay together just so you can read the sex scenes. That’s how spicy they are together.” – BooksandBeyondFiftyShades
