BILLIONAIRE BRANDON GRIECO never mixes business with pleasure. That’s his cardinal rule. His work and personal affairs are two distinct entities that will never meet.
His pleasure is not in the string of women lining up to pay homage to his ripped, loaded body but in the people he considers family—his bestfriend and business partner Kei, Kei’s wife Mariah, and Marishka, Kei and Mariah’s only child, the apple of their eyes.
His business is the billion-dollar software company he founded with Kei. That’s it. His life is one neat, orderly set-up and he wants to keep it that way. He tried marriage once but it went bust sooner than the time-frame stated in his prenup. All his fault. He was just not cut out for fidelity nor exclusivity.
He has made his last will and testament, too, just in case he croaks before Kei. Marishka will one day inherit his share of the company. To make sure she won’t be prey to charming opportunists, he underhandedly looks for potential future husbands for her. Yup, only the best for his princess.
But Marishka drops a bomb on him. She chooses him to be her future husband.
Brandon’s world tilts on its axis. He has helped raise Marishka into this strong, single-minded, determined young woman who will one day inherit a billion-dollar empire, not realizing he will be the recipient of her reckless passion the moment she turns eighteen.
Him and Marishka? No. There are eighteen years between them and she is his goddaughter, for pete’s sake! Wrong. Just wrong in all levels. But why is the thought of her with another man, even the one he has chosen for her makes him want to commit murder?
‘Never mix business with pleasure’ is now a crossroad with a Catch 22 sign.
