Ambivalence by Jessica Jayne:
Growing up in a group home with no family, Eric Walker worked night and day to put a roof over his head, food on his table and build his empire. Today, he’s part owner of one of the largest real estate companies in the city. Women fall to their knees in front of him with just the snap of his fingers. He doesn’t want for anything. Well, until he finds Celia Hawkins in a compromising position. Now he’s bewitched and wants her. But he knows better. Celia is not only nineteen years his junior but also his business partner’s daughter.
Celia has everything her little heart craves. She’s used to getting what she wants. And she wants Eric Walker naked and over her. When he turns down her proposition, she’s fuming mad. No one tells her no and doesn’t regret it.
When Celia’s father finds himself in serious trouble that could risk the company, he turns to Eric. Eric agrees to help him but there’s a catch—Celia must marry him. At only twenty-six years old and a stubborn streak a mile lone, Celia isn’t one to break her rules. The question is will she bend them?
