Billionaire Desireth Book 1: Billionaire Wanteth



An Alpha Billionaire Romance




Prologue

Desiree is ready for a new job. She’s been looking for several months and has finally scored an interview for a promising internship with the city’s most prestigious hedge fund. She knows that securing the internship would put her one step closer to the job of her dreams. After spending so many years in college, Desiree is looking forward to getting back into the swing of things. She is ready for her life to begin.

When she goes to the interview and finds that she’s just one of hundreds of applicants, Desiree is sure that she has no chance. But her interviewer turns out to be the CEO of the company, and when he tells her that she has the job, Desiree is on top of the world.

It’s only when he starts to ask her out – alone, without the rest of the interns – that she realizes he wants her. The problem is, Desiree wants him too. But she doesn’t want to jeopardize her new job, and an office affair is the last thing she needs. Desiree has to get her mind off of Greg Jefferson before she loses herself and puts her new life at risk.





Chapter 1 – Desiree

“It’s going to be okay. You worry too much.”

“I hope you’re right. I don’t know what I’m going to do if I don’t get this internship. There is nowhere that will even hire me without some type of work experience.”

“I told you last semester to do that work program for Calley’s.”

I nodded in agreement. While Fran had tried to convince me that it would be great on my resume, I hadn’t been thinking about that. All I’d been thinking about was getting the summer off. It was the one time that I didn’t want to worry about classes or financial aid or any of the stress of the rest of the year. Now I was kind of kicking myself for it. I should have listened.

“You were right.”

She looked at me a little shocked. If she had known how many people I had talked to about a job and how many of them told me they would hire me when I got some experience, she wouldn’t have been. Fran had been right, and I now wished I would have listened.

“I can’t believe you just agreed with me.”

“Don’t get used to it, but I can admit when I’m wrong. I was definitely wrong about that. I don’t know what I was thinking.”

I really didn’t. It had been almost three months since I had graduated, and I was starting to get the feeling that I had missed out on some sort of advice that everyone else knew.

“You will find something.”

I smiled back at her. Fran’s gloating was over, and I was thankful that she was not that kind of person. She had been right more than once in the years I had known her since we started middle school together.

“You’re just worried I won’t be able to pay rent.”

“It’s due.”

Sighing to myself, I looked back at my reflection and tried to convince myself that today was the day that everything was going to change. I might have talked brave, and I would never admit the fear I had inside, but it didn’t stop me from feeling like this was the last chance. If I didn’t get into the accounting internship program at Jefferson & Marshal, I had a feeling that I was going to have to take a bookkeeping job that paid less than the bar job I had now.

“So how do I look?”

“I would hire you, especially if I didn’t have to pay you any money.”

“It’s only for six weeks, unpaid.”

“That’s if you get the job.”

I gave her a look. I didn’t want to be reminded of the chances of getting a job from the internship. It wasn’t guaranteed, but I had to believe my luck would change if I could just get my foot in the door.

“I have some faith. If not, I got a couple of shifts this weekend that will take care of the rent.”

Pulling my blonde hair back, I put in a few bobby pins to hold it back. “You don’t think this outfit looks slutty, do you?’

The jacket was a little tight on the chest and the skirt was a little tight on my rear. I pulled the undershirt up a little so there wasn’t so much cleavage, but I knew that I wasn’t going to be able to cover it all. I was feeling unsure, and her telling me that it might help me out didn’t help me then when I was questioning everything.
