~*~

College graduate meets billionaire devil in this CEO story twist. Adrienne Walker wanted nothing more than to finish college and get a good-paying job to complete what she thought was the ideal life plan. However, life is never perfect, and Adrienne learns this the hard way when she is thrust into the world of billionaires - specifically, the arms of Lazareth Noir. Their feelings are both played with, especially once it is revealed that Lazareth is not human and Adrienne's anxiety constantly impedes their relationship. However, when an old enemy tries to break them apart, can Adrienne put her perfect checklist and anxiety aside to save the one thing she swore she would never let break - her heart?
