The Price of Passion ePUB by Ember Leigh
I’m on top of the world while hurtling toward rock bottom. With my life unraveling around me, the only safe way forward is alone…
I’ll do whatever I can to help someone. Your charity needs a million dollars? You’ll have it tomorrow. America’s underprivileged youth in need of new school supplies? Done. After a childhood of loss and financial stress, nobody is more motivated to save the world than me, Damian Fairchild, CTO of Fairchild Enterprises.
So when my best buddy from high school wants me to hire his little sister—the very same curvaceous little sister I fought like hell not to notice as a kid—I can’t tell him no. Of course I say “She’ll start tomorrow,” like the helpful sap I am.
Now that my business is in the crosshairs of the SEC, I’ve got to watch my step, stay alert. So Jessa Walton’s incomparable hotness is a distressing distraction. Not to mention the knack she’s got for drawing me out of my shell. She doesn’t understand that the idea of us—together—has “NO!” written all over it. She wants all of me, but I don’t give that to anyone.
I can only be a jerk to her for so long, though, before Jessa’s sweet sunshine sets me ablaze. Can you blame me? I’ve been secretly in love with her since my junior year of high school, which makes it easy to break my number one rule—Trust no one and keep your heart out of it.
In the middle of so much stress and uncertainty, I should know better than to enjoy a ray of sunshine. Sunny days never last. When the heat from the investigation turns up and my empire is rattled by another big blow, I’m questioning whether Jessa is actually a thunderstorm disguised as a cloudless sky.
Giving in to that burning passion has a steep price. Letting down my guard might cost me everything my brothers and I have worked to build.
