I've moved through life doing what's expected of me. I'm the middle daughter, the dutiful daughter. The one who braved a vicious attack and survived. The one who devoted herself to her family's business empire. The one who met an ambitious man and fell in love. We were going to run Fleur Cosmetics together, Zachary and I.
Until he got a promotion and left me in the dust. Maybe it's for the best, between his disloyalty and his wandering eye. But another man was waiting for me. Wanting me. He too has an overwhelming thirst for success, just like Zachary - perhaps even more so. He's also ruthless. And mysterious. I know nothing about Ryder McKay beyond that he makes me feel things I've never felt before.
One stolen moment, a kiss, a touch . . . and I'm hooked. Ryder's like a powerful drug, and I'm an addict who doesn't want to be cured. He tells me his intentions aren't pure, and I believe him. For once, I don't care. I'm willing to risk everything just to be with him. Including my heart. My soul.
Advance praise for Owning Violet"Owning Violet owned me from the first page to the last. Ryder and Violet's chemistry is off the charts! Read it, own it, love it!" - New York Times bestselling author Katy Evans
Violet is the perfect daughter, sister, girlfriend, and employee, but Ryder comes along with a hidden agenda. He is very ambitious and he will do whatever it takes to get that promotion and be successful, but that’s what he thought until he burned something inside Violet that she haven’t felt before. Ryder just wants to play a game with Violet, but he doesn’t know that this game will make a huge change in his life.
At first you will be seriously pissed at Ryder, but at the story progresses you will realize that he's not an asshole you thought he was. This book will make you want to punch Zachary in the balls. The phrase ‘once a cheater, always a cheater’ is seriously perfect for him.
Fun, sexy, annoying, panty-dropping and infuriating. Owning Violet will make you feel a lot of things in just a flick of your fingers.
