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.

This series contains adult language, sex, mild violence, and cliffhangers! ;) This is book 1 of 5, all out now!
