Just when Zora is convinced things can’t get more complicated, life proves her wrong.

What the heck is he doing here?

NICK ROSSI’s complicated life is still extremely complicated. He’s used to fighting for everything he has, but he’s also used to winning. Now a man of power and influence, his return to Green Valley after so many years hasn’t gone according to plan, especially with the woman he’s always wanted.

My Review…

What a fantastic debut novel by Ms. Ellis! I will surely be stalking her (in a healthy fangirl way)!

This is the story of Zora and Nick and what a heartfelt, swoony and rich story this is.

Zora is a woman on a mission, a true wonder woman! She wants to make her world a better place but at what cost?  She has packed her bruised and broken heart away for years, and her job is her reason for surviving.

Nick, oh my me, this man is everything a swoony alpha hero should be! It’s taken him a lot of years, but boy does this man come back into Zora’s world with a vengeance!

The long history between Zora and Nick makes their chemistry so real and believable.  They are true soulmates, it just took a lot of years to get there.

Ms. Ellis has a magic to her words, the world she creates within the Green Valley setting is beautiful.  I could “feel” and “see” what her words describe and that is a true talent.  The research she put into this story is remarkable.  You can tell she was really knowledgeable in what Zora was so passionate about.

Congratulations on a stellar debut novel! I cannot wait to read what comes next from Ms. Ellis! She has a bright future ahead of her!
