A dark contemporary fractured fairy tale reimagining of Aladdin by BookTok sensation Emily McIntire
She's his diamond in the rough. He's her worst nightmare.
Yasmin Karam was raised in prosperity. Daughter to one of the richest men in the world, she's been fortunate to never know strife. When her father falls ill, he has one last wish: to see her married to someone of his choosing. Determined to make his last days his happiest, she agrees. But there's one problem: her heart belongs to someone else. A servant. A street rat. A man who would never be considered worthy. Stuck between a rock and a hard place, Yasmin strikes a deal with an unlikely ally—Julian Faraci, her father's right hand man—not realizing he has his own twisted agenda.
Julian Faraci came from nothing, built from broken bones and faded bruises. But dark pasts can forge bright futures, and Julian has climbed his way through the trenches, not caring who gets hurt along the way. He has one goal: become the most powerful man in the world. When his mentor falls ill, he's on the verge of losing everything, and he'll stop at nothing to inherit what is rightfully his. Even if it means forcing a woman he can't stand into marriage.
She's a brat who speaks out of turn. He's the villain of her story. But he's decided that she's his...whether she wants to be or not.
