Eve is an investigative journalist obsessed with the job. She breaks hard hitting stories that can change the fabric of society. Her articles take down corporations, crime lords, dirty politicians and the like. Nothing is too big for her to write. This has put her life in danger more than once, but Eve is no stranger to this. She’s had a rocky and dangerous past that she had to run away and even hide from for a time. She and her best friend Iris met in grade school and found solace in one another, bonding over their broken family lives.
Eve is working on a huge story but has hit a wall. She can’t find the break she needs in order to make the story viable. Her boss has told her that she needs to forget about the story and submit something they can actually publish soon or her job is on the line. Eve is approached by a mysterious source about a story involving a major corporation blackmailing hundreds of powerful people in order to line their pockets. The only problem is that her source is the owner of the corporation’s biggest rival and her estranged brother’s best friend. His name is Ethen James, a single father and one of the youngest billionaires in history.
He and Eve grow closer as they investigate the story. Despite Eve’s best efforts, she even thinks that he might be the one. Although she does not trust him at first, his relationship with her brother is enough to justify that he might not be trustworthy. She thinks that he may have ulterior motives for breaking the story, as it would take out his biggest competitor. He convinces her that his motives are honest and that maybe her brother is not as bad as she thinks. He does seem to have something to hide, though. As the story gets even bigger, they end up having to dodge life threatening attacks hired out by the corporation to keep them silent. Only when Ethen is put in jail for a crime he did not commit does Eve realize how far they will go to keep them quiet.
Can Eve prove Ethen’s innocence and make the connections she needs in order to break the story of a lifetime?
