Description

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 her mother and she 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....

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 15, 2014 – Fans of blazingly hot, anger-fueled, expense-account-funded hate sex will adore Young's (Echoes of Scotland Street) story of personal drama among Boston's financial elite. When Alexa Holland's photographer employer is hired to do a magazine shoot featuring banking CEO Caine Carraway, she takes the opportunity to apologize to Caine for the way her father ruined his family. Caine is enraged, and Alexa gets fired. Still reeling, she's even more shocked when Caine offers to hire her as his personal assistant. Caine's entitled, exacting treatment of Alexa in the office, and his mercurial oscillation between crazed lust and cruel coldness after they embark on a secret affair, are mediated by the warmth of Caine's flirty colleague Henry and the encouragement and baked goods of his adopted grandmother, Effie. Though the plot requires the protagonists to realize that they need not relive their ancestors' mistakes, readers won't much care about Alexa and Caine's happy ending: their volatility is where the energy lies.

WOW, - and Unexpected! By Cincy Kid 68!

1st read by Samantha Young; sooo worth it, and have to pick another one, NOW! No way your standard Luv Story, much more layered and the characters are fun to see develop. Gotta get this book, just WOW. JB

Good read

I honestly couldn't put this book down. It kept me interested even though I wanted to smack Lexi sometimes for being too hopeful. I like the plot twist and the characters.

Fantastic!

It's been a long time since I read a book I didn't want to put down - this was was one of them! The story was great, the characters strong and the writing was well done. Definitely recommend!
