Some things are better left unknown. For example, your best friend sneaking around with one of the richest men in America. Teagan Carter was going to wait it out until Oliver Bartholomew ended things with her friend. But when her best friend slowly starts showing up to school with expensive jewelry and a new car, she becomes concerned that maybe this is no ordinary hookup.


Theodore Bartholomew only sees this as an opportunity to kick his older brother out of the C.E.O position at Bartholomew Hotels and right into jail. All he wants is to take over his brother's place, so Theo seeks help from Teagan Carter to bust his brother's relationship with a minor. 


But what is Teagan really getting herself into? What world will she be dragged into when it comes to cooperate sibling rivalry?

“You mean after someone tried to kill me?” I ask with a sigh. “Yeah, stuff like that can shake a person up.”


“I know,” Theo frowns and looks at me with true concern.


“Wait- you know? Has this happened to you before?” I ask him in shock. 


Theo gives me a cold look. “When you’re involved with cooperations like my family’s? People will do almost anything to “take care” of the other competition that threatens their success.” He takes a step closer to me. “Money equals power, Teagan. You’ll be surprised to know what you can get away with when you have an unlimited bank account.”
