    Summary

    Another low laugh. The ice in his drink clinks against the glass. It makes her stomach tense. 

    “Probably for the best. I didn’t think you wanted to go home with someone living in a flex space in Murray Hill, anyway. Let me buy you a drink.”

    “One drink,” Alina says, willing stern warning into her voice. Unsure if it’s directed at herself or him. “Are you going to try and explain shorting to me?”

    He grins, incisors gleaming in the dim light. 

    “Only if you ask nicely.”

    Alina gets more than she bargained for with Wall Street tsar Aleksander Morozova.

    Summary

    Alina Starkov is seventeen years old, and knows everything — and nothing. But Aleksander has promised that if she has a question, all she has to do is ask.

    But she has not asked her hardest questions.

    ----

    “It’s just me, Alya,” Aleksander says softly, his voice low and cool, and Alina lets it wrap around her, swears that the room gets a little darker and that her blood calms a little. “You trust me, don’t you?”
