New Adult Romance Date Published: April 1, 2014 It wasn’t exactly like sunky, photography student, Abbie Nartey ran away from her life…except, that she left under the cover of darkness and put three thousand miles between her and her ex-boyfriend’s betrayal. She went to London searching for her dream. She never expected to find love, or herself. Heir to his family’s tech fortune, sexy, Alexi Chase, is looking for freedom—from his family and from his past. What he’s not looking for is love. With secrets like his, he can’t afford to let anyone get too close. But a chance rescue has him wondering if the price of keeping secrets is too high. Will Alexi risk losing love to keep his past hidden? Will Abbie trust herself enough to love again? Or will their pasts keep then from accepting true love?
This book is a little bit different from what I usually read but I felt curious because of the title. It turned out to be a pleasant surprise and I spent some good time reading it.
This is the story of Abbie and Alexi. She is a strong minded girl who moves away from her old life and family to pursue her biggest dream and keep the distance between her and her ex-boyfriend. In this new fase of her life, when she decided that she wanted to stay away from people who harmed her, she meets Alexi. Not only they are attracted to each other immediatley, but also they have an amazing chemistry. Both of them also have secrets they want to keep from each other and that can make things a little harder than what they wished.
The characters are, in general, really well built and you can have that feeling of getting to know some of them really well. I felt sympathetic for Abbie, she’s a great character. Her life in London is fun to read, especially at the beggining of the book when she is still adjusting to the new things. I love the way sometimes it really felt I was seeing the world through Abbie’s eyes.
What I loved more about the book was the way it’s writen, simple but mature. Nana Malone is a fabulous writer. I thought there was going to be too much drama but it happens that it was just the right amoung for the plot to be interesting and somehow intriguing at times.
USA Today Best Seller and iTunes Breakout Books author, Nana Malone’s love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she borrowed from her cousin.
It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She’s been in love with kick butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.
While she waits for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, in the meantime Nana works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.
