That Look by Alexis Winter
As CEO of my family’s brewing empire, I’ve had one dream, to build my own legacy.
Fifteen minutes ago, the one woman I can’t stand marched her perfect, uptight backside into my boardroom and stole it from me.
Amelia Blanc, heir to the Blanc wine fortune and now…my new business partner.
I’ve known about the Blanc family for years and I’ve done my fair share of stoking the rumor fire surrounding their unethical behavior.
Like when I lost it at my brother’s wedding reception and made a few not so tasteful accusations to her face in front of everyone.
So imagine my surprise, when after apologizing to her and thinking we’ve called a truce, I walk into my boardroom and see her standing there with a pearly white smile plastered on her face that says: I win.
If she wants to win by going behind my back and convincing my father that she deserves this business partnership with Slade Brewing…Game on sweetheart.
But the more I get to know her, the more I realize that uptight facade of hers is, begging to be unraveled.
She’s sexy and tempting, a delicate flower that makes me want to forget being a gentleman and show her how a real man could make her feel.
So when she gives me that look, the one that has me thinking thoughts I have no business thinking…all bets are off.
One minute we’re hating each other, the next she’s in my arms, in my bed…and carrying my baby.
As much as I’d like to think our hate turned to love with no hiccups, there’s something she doesn’t know.
Something that could shatter her heart.
Something I've been too ashamed to tell her.
It’s crazy how one look can change everything.
And one secret can destroy it all.
