Olivia Collins has always been the peacemaker in her family, but when she meets the dark and mysterious billionaire, Alexander Knight, she finds herself drawn into a world of passion and intensity that she never knew existed. From the moment he sets his eyes on her, Alexander is possessive and protective of Liv, and she can't resist his magnetic pull. But as their relationship intensifies, Liv begins to uncover the secrets Alexander is keeping from her, and she realizes that he has a past that could tear them apart. Will their love be strong enough to overcome the obstacles in their path, or will Liv be forced to choose between her heart and her head?
Liv Collins had never been one to seek out adventure. She was a pediatric nurse, for crying out loud. Her idea of a wild night was staying up past 10 pm to binge-watch Netflix. But as she stood in the crowded ballroom of the hotel, champagne flute in hand, she knew that something was about to change.
She wasn't sure why she'd agreed to come to the charity fundraiser with her friend, Emma. Maybe it was the promise of a free fancy dress and the chance to mingle with the city's elite. Maybe it was the fact that she'd been feeling restless lately, like she was stuck in a rut. Or maybe it was something else entirely.
As Liv scanned the room, taking in the opulent decorations and the elegantly dressed guests, she felt a flutter of excitement in her stomach. This was a world she'd never been a part of, a world of glamour and excess. It was intoxicating.
"Hey, Liv!" Emma's voice interrupted her thoughts. "Have you seen the new guy?"
Liv turned to her friend, raising an eyebrow. "New guy?"
Emma nodded eagerly. "The one who just moved to the city. Alexander Knight. He's supposed to be here tonight."
Liv rolled her eyes. "And why should I care about some random guy I've never met?"
"Because he's hot," Emma said, grinning. "And single. And loaded."
Liv laughed, shaking her head. "That's not exactly my type."
But even as she said the words, she found herself scanning the room, wondering if she'd be able to spot this Alexander Knight. And then, without warning, she did.
He was standing in the corner, surrounded by a group of men in expensive suits. Liv couldn't see his face clearly from this distance, but she could tell he was tall, with broad shoulders and a confident stance. And then he turned, catching her eye.
For a moment, Liv was frozen, caught in the intensity of his gaze. It was like he was looking right through her, seeing something she didn't even know was there. And then he smiled, a slow, knowing smile that made her heart skip a beat.
"Come on," Emma said, grabbing Liv's arm. "Let's go say hi."
Liv hesitated for a moment, but then she let herself be pulled across the room, toward the man in the corner. As they approached, the group of men parted, giving them a clear view of Alexander Knight.
He was even more striking up close. His eyes were a deep, dark brown, and his features were sharp and angular. He was wearing a perfectly tailored suit that probably cost more than Liv's entire wardrobe.
"Alexander, this is Liv," Emma said, introducing them.
Alexander's smile widened. "Liv," he repeated, as if testing the sound of her name on his lips. "It's a pleasure to meet you."
As he took her hand in his, Liv felt a jolt of electricity shoot through her body. It was like they had an instant connection, a spark that neither of them could deny.
Over the course of the evening, Liv found herself drawn to Alexander like a moth to a flame. He was charming and charismatic, with a magnetic presence that was impossible to resist. And yet, there was something in his eyes that hinted at a deeper darkness, a secret that he was keeping.
As the night wore on, Liv couldn't shake the feeling that she was being pulled into a world of danger and excitement, a world that was completely foreign to her. But she didn't care. All she knew was that she wanted more of Alexander.
