Spotlight: Determined and Derailed by Gracie Wilson



 
 
Determined and Derailed by Gracie Wilson
 
 
What happens when you stumble upon something you can’t turn a blind eye to? In one blinding instant my life is turned upside down. During all the chaos that has become my life, I find friendships are tested, loyalties are betrayed and those left whom I love are put in danger or killed. I can only count on me. Three men are in my life, but they each have their own motives. My only motive is to make it out of this alive. I don’t even know if that is possible My name is Alexis Storm and my answer to the storm which my life has become is to fight back at all costs – to survive.
 
 
 
 
“I’m Alexis Storm and you must be Cohen Price.”
He nodded with agreement. “Pleasure to meet you, Miss Storm.”
Oh, God, no, the pleasure is all mine. I didn’t say that, though. God, why was I thinking that way, that was embarrassing. I knew I’d be twenty tomorrow, but he made me feel like I was fifteen again.

“Mr. Price, please have a seat, I have so much I’d like to discuss.” He gave a small smile and I was stunned again. Did he know the effect he had on women? He must.
“Please call me Cohen.” I nodded to give him my reply, as my words were still lost. He went over his resume, his achievements and I must say they were quite exceptional. It was no surprise that Maxwell Finch recommended him for the job when I signed his contract.
“You’re most definitely qualified. However, with your recommendation coming from Mr. Finch I worry it may be a conflict of interest. I am looking for someone to stay on and work other contracts, not just his. I need complete confidentiality and you will have to sign paperwork stating all of this.” 

He waited, and then told me something shocking. “I am not fond of Maxwell. He can be an arrogant prick and he knows he can be because people want his business. I will never be the employee who sits back and says ‘yes, Mrs. Storm’ just because I think it’s want you want to hear. I will tell you the blunt truth whether you’d like it or not.”

Well, that was not what I expected. “You’re perfect.” Oh, wow, had I just said that? I was sure there was a blush on my face. He was just staring at me and I knew he was holding back a laugh. “For this job I am going to need someone who will be honest and not worry about hurting the boss’ feelings. I don’t need you to tell me that everything is roses. I want the truth. I feel this is a good fit. Wouldn’t you, Cohen?” His eyes were drilling right into me, they had me pinned to him and this was a disaster.
“Definitely.”
 
 
 
 
Bio
Gracie Wilson
Look for her in the trees enjoying nature’s wonders, traveling to see the latest animal conservations, or at aquariums all around the world. This girl loves nature and all animals. She has many pets and is always adding new editions. The more the merrier in her mind. Sitting under the shade reading a book, letting the world around her pass by, while she is safe in her bubble of imagination. Well that is where she’d love to stay. She is a softball player, can be talked into the occasional Karaoke and loves going out to dance. She is a first generation Canadian living in Ontario. Her family is from Scotland, so finding her in the hot sun for very long is unlikely, but give her rain and thunderstorms and she’s golden.
