Reluctant billionaire Alexander Jacobs was not prepared for the events that would forever change his life. His parents were recently killed by a drunk driver, and he was not ready to take over the family business.
While he enjoyed the benefits of his family's business, he was too inexperienced to run their empire alone. He was dreading the upcoming funeral for his parents, but when he saw that his longtime friend Brienne Warhol was there, it made him feel just a little better.
She was attending Columbia Law School, but when she heard about Alexander's parents, she knew she had to be with him. He went to college locally and missed Brienne's friendship when she left for New York.
She fantasized about him constantly, but he thought of her only as "one of the guys."
When she finally graduated from law school, they met up for a celebratory glass or two of champagne. She had too much to drink, and before she could stop herself, she kissed him. Deeply. Her head was spinning, and after he looked at her like she had crossed the line, she felt sick.
She wished she could take back that damn kiss. Did Brienne ruin her chances of a romantic relationship with Alexander, the only man she's ever wanted in her life, or did her kiss spark something inside him that he'd never felt before?
