Risky Business | Zayn Malik | AU
❝To know what life is worth, you have to risk it once in a while.❞
Alexandra Holt and Zayn Malik are from different worlds. Alexandra has grown up with the type of life some can only dream of--a mansion of a house, a plethora of people to serve her every need, and a father of such financial status and pure power that she's been handed everything in life.
Zayn, on the other hand has had a starkly divergent type of lifestyle. He knows the modesty of a bungalow, he's familiar with overdue bills, and has had to work tooth and nail to own the items he's needed--extravagant or not. He's worked his way up from being a nobody to being one of the most wanted and well-paid transporters (or drivers) at a very young age some have ever seen.
So, it's safe to say that when Victor--Alexandra's father--decides to send her away again for her own safety from the dangers of his business activities, Zayn and her don't exactly see eye to eye. Alexandra's spoiled and Zayn's rough around the edges, which makes it rather interesting for the two of them out on the road.
With boyfriends to cry over, constant fights to pick over the littlest of differences, rather scarce money (or at least in Alexandra's eyes), hidden secrets, and the everlasting threat of danger lurking around every corner, the both of them only have one another to lean on. Which means that they both have that much more to lose.
In Risky Business, surprises are the inevitable and every little decision made can be life-changing.
✵ In which he only protects her because of the money, until love sneaks in past his guarded heart
