Sometimes in order to have it all you have to be willing to risk everything.
Self-made billionaire Donovan James works hard and plays harder. After all life is no fun without risks. But finding a woman who agrees has been more difficult than he’d ever imagined, until now.
Lisa Scott knows how to get what she wants and what she wants is a life with Van. They belong together and she’ll do whatever it takes to make him realize it. Including taking him up on his challenge to invite his best friend, Jason, into their bed for one night.
She’ll give him his fantasy and in return, hopefully, she’ll get hers.
Lauren has always been a dreamer, weaving stories to keep herself entertained. Through her stories she can travel anywhere in the world and money is not an object. Now who wouldn't want that? Unfortunately the demands of the real world pushed her dreams to side for a while.
After talking to her children about going after what they wanted and not letting fear stand in their way, she realized she needed to lead by example and chase her own dreams. She enjoys going hiking, camping and kayaking with her husband and two daughters. Lauren loves to receive reader feedback so fire an email her way.
"Miss Scott, you can’t go in there," Donovan James’ secretary yelled.
"It’s fine, he’ll see me, Marianne."
"No, he asked not to be disturbed," Marianne called out.
Even through the door he could hear the mad scramble of a chair sliding across the floor and the rapid staccato of high-heeled shoes clicking across the floor. His office door swung open and Lisa Scott stood at the entranceway. "Van, call off your dog."
His harried secretary Marianne stood beside Lisa. The fierce set of his assistant’s shoulders and her pursed lips almost made him laugh. Part of the reason why he’d hired her was because she intimidated practically everyone, but Lisa wasn’t like most people.
"I told her you were busy," the older woman told him. Her displeasure with the other woman dripped from her tongue.
"It’s fine, Marianne," Van assured her.
Lisa rolled her eyes at him then turned to the smaller woman and smiled. "Can I get a cup of tea when you get a chance?"
"Of course," Marianne gritted.
He bit his lip to hide his amusement at the interplay. Marianne disliked every woman he dated on sight and Lisa had been no different, despite the fact that Lisa had remembered Marianne’s birthday and anniversary. Still, the older woman had no patience for her, now Lisa seemed to take pleasure in annoying his assistant.
Setting his pen down on the mountain of paperwork on his desk, he sighed. So much for getting through his work. Although if he was going to be interrupted, he couldn’t think of a better reason than Lisa. He scanned her body in the fitted skirt and blouse. Her dark brown hair was pulled back into some kind of knot and with her glasses on she had this whole librarian thing going on. And damned if the look didn’t just make him want to muss her up.
Her blue eyes twinkled as she pointed a finger at him. "Don’t even think about it, mister. I have a meeting to go to when I finish here."
