The emotional and unforgettable new romance from the New York Times bestselling author of the On Dublin Street series.
Alexa Holland’s father was her hero—until her shocking discovery that she and her mother weren't his only family. Ever since, Alexa has worked to turn her life in a different direction and forge her own identity outside of his terrible secrets. But when she meets a man who’s as damaged by her father’s mistakes as she is, Alexa must help him.
Caine Carraway wants nothing to do with Alexa’s efforts at redemption, but it’s not so easy to push her away. Determined to make her hate him, he brings her to the edge of her patience and waits for her to walk away. But his actions only draw them together and, despite the odds, they begin an intense and explosive affair.
Only Caine knows he can never be the white knight that Alexa has always longed for. And when they're on the precipice of danger, he finds he’ll do anything to protect either one of them from being hurt again…

About the book:
Alexa Holland’s whole world came crashing down the day she found out that her happy family weren’t all that happy after all. Her father had another family beside her and her mother and on the top of it all he also had an affair with a third woman who unfortunately ended up dead and her dad did nothing to try and save her. Alexa took distance from her parents and tried to move on with her life in a different direction from theirs.
Caine Carraway sees red when he spots Alexa at the photo shot he was attending. He can’t stand to be around her even if it’s the first time he ever saw her. He is consumed by years long anger and pain that her father has caused him and his family. The only thing on his mind is how to hurt Alexa and show her what real pain is.
But one thing that neither one of them saw coming was this fire that would burn them both. Passion was so strong that they couldn’t fight it even if they give it their best. Drama, secrets, redemption, forgiveness, hot passionate sex and love is what this book is about.
This book was definitely one of the best reads in 2015 for me!!!!
It has a good and strong story that keeps you going and wanting to find out more and more for every page you flip over. I fell in love with it from the start and Alexa and Caine just made it worth my time. It was a pure joy to read/listen to this book, that good that I had to re-listen to the audiobook again just to bring me back to this lovely couple and their journey.
The writing was really good and quality is shown in every chapter. Story line gets 5+++++ stars, it was intense and solid and there wasn’t a moment where I felt my interest was starting to fade just the opposite.
Narrator was Angelica Lee and she did amazing job!!!!! 10+++++ stars for her interpretation, I wasn’t surprised by the quality she brought into this project knowing her from other works she had done. I could close my eyes and get lost in the book and be there with the characters and feel their emotions and the way they were thinking. The way she shifted from different voices and dialects was beyond great.
I would definitely recommend this book for you guys. It’s a feel good read 🙂
