Wow! What can I say about this book? This is not the first book I’ve read by this author, in fact, I read her debut novel The Incidental Affair and loved it as well! K.S. Marshall has easily become one of my favorite romance authors, she hooked me from the very beginning!
Alina comes from a prominent family. Growing up she has been in the spotlight and groomed to her mother’s specifications. She must act a certain way, she dates who her mother wants her to date, she must always act like a lady. Wear this. Talk like that. Yada-yada-yada (I mean come on!). It get’s to be oppressive, and one night she runs away.
Derrik is running from his past and has been hired as a private investigator for the Prescott family to look into the family itself to find anything that could potentially harm Thomas (Alina’s father) during the race for Mayor, but with Alina’s runaway stunt, Derrik is now on a mission to bring her home. So begins our little love story!
Ah! Such a romantic book! But you know…it wasn’t all rainbows and butterflies. There’s always gotta be that one PERSON that FUCKS EVERYTHING UP! Actually, there are two people, and just thinking about it makes me want to bash something. Although…Derrik does that a lot for me. He is such a perfect gentleman!
I thought I was going to receive my happy ending, but with all duets, there is always a cliff hanger, always a twist, always something to snatch that HEA (happily ever after) away from my grabby little hands.
I can’t wait for the second book, because there is still so much I
want need to know!
K.S. Marshall wow’d me again, and I hope she wow’s you too. The characters were believable, the sex scenes were on point (fans self) and just over-all the entire book was just a neat little bundle of joy.
About the Author ❤
K.S. Marshall is a nearly thirty-something writer, living and loving in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with her boyfriend, two kids and two fur babies. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, she’s lived all over the United States and considers herself an adopted Texan at heart.
Labeled as “super emotional” and “dramatic” very early on in life, it became second nature to journal and write. K.S. realized her overactive imagination and her affinity for creating stories from thin air helped her as a writer. She is drawn to character that are relatable; people that you might know or find within yourself. She enjoys a good plot twist and using elements that have you anxiously turning the page to figure out what happens next.
