Meet Mason. He is used to getting what he wants. The head of his own corporate empire, he has wealth, means, and no shortage of beautiful women ready to fulfill his every need. But despite having it all, Mason is bored. Until he comes face-to-face with a woman from his past--one who will do anything to get what she wants. But is her desire for Mason worth the risk?
She sank down in the chair.
“Hey, what’s up?” her roommate Elli asked, as she walked past and slumped on the couch across from her. “You’re white as a ghost.”
“I . . . uh . . .” Dana glanced up at the slim, tall blonde who shared the small, two-bedroom apartment with her. It was a bit dumpy, but it was only a ten-minute walk from the university. “It’s from my mom.”
“Oh? What does the bitch have to say?”
Dana cringed a bit at the way Elli referred to her mom, feeling disloyal to her family for not sticking up for her, but at this precise moment, she didn’t really feel like defending her mother. And Elli was only going on the incidents she’d witnessed.
“She . . . ” Dana sucked in a deep breath. “She says I’m cut off.”
“Cut off? You mean, she won’t be giving you the money you need for you Masters?”
Dana shook her head. “She thinks it’s a waste of money and time. She thinks I should go out and get a real job, and learn to stand on my own two feet. She won’t even co-sign on another student loan.”
Dana gazed at Elli, her chest compressed under the weight of her crushed dreams. “I don’t know what to do,” she murmured helplessly.
Elli pursed her lips. “I think I have an idea, but promise me you’ll keep an open mind, because it’s a little bit crazy.”
