Secrets from his past have scarred his heart. Can he trust her enough to learn to love again?
In the eyes of the law, I’d atoned for the secrets of my past, but in my heart, I knew the debt I owed was too big to ever be repaid. I didn’t ask for forgiveness, because I knew I wasn’t worthy of it. Guilt weighed me down and scarred my heart.
If it wasn’t for my art, I’d probably be dead. The truth was, I had nothing else to live for. Or so I thought until Octavia Douglas came breezing unexpectedly into the picture.
Sexy, stubborn, and smart enough to know better than to throw her future away on a guy like me, Vivi made me question everything I thought I already knew. I suddenly craved the happy ever after I’d never dared dream of, and knew I didn’t deserve.
MV ELLIS knows what it’s like to fall head over heels in love with a badass musician. She followed her heart halfway around the world to be with one. She moved from London to Sydney after a steamy holiday romance with a sexy bass player in sultry Brazil.
Twelve years, two children and a dog later, and she’s still smitten. All this with a guy she sat next to on a bus for 36 hours! She has toured internationally as a “WAG,” and her experiences inspire her writing.
Ellis’s love of romance began when she was 11 years old, after a summer spent secretly reading her auntie’s books. She’s been a sucker for an alpha hero and strong heroine ever since.
An avid reader, Ellis always knew she’d write a book of her own one day. She was right about that. Following a career spanning advertising, marketing, and social media, she finally wrote Catching London in 2017.
A new series by Ms. Ellis?!? Sign me up please!
This is the story of Zed and Octavia or by her better name Vivi.
Two people who at first glance seem to be polar opposites of each other. But when you get to know them both, you see how alike they really are.
I admired Vivi’s tenacity. I loved how her outer shell, her persona was nothing like the “real” her inside. She is fearless and unapologetic and sassy, so, so sassy! I also admired how she could really cover up her true feelings when needed and let everything out when warranted. She is a spitfire and so amazing!
Zed, oh my me, this man has had the worst of situations heaped upon his shoulders at a young age and it shaped him into the man he has become! He too has an outer shell that no one has been able to break through, until Vivi.
There are surprises aplenty in this story! I was gasping at some points and shaking my head in disbelief at others!
Ms. Ellis has really found her stride in her writing, each book getting better and better! I cannot wait to see which character she writes about next! You can believe I will be following her closely!
