Twenty-four year old Dexter Michaels has arrived in the UK for a fresh start – leaving everything and everyone he knows behind in the states. Determined to put right some of the wrongs he’ll never be able to forgive himself for making and make his Aunt Sarah – the only person left who still believes in him – proud, he lands in London with the intention of working hard, getting his degree and keeping himself to himself. He can’t destroy anybody else that way…
His heart and his body have other ideas however when he finds himself sitting next to nineteen year old Emily Barton in his Psychology class. Moving down south to find her own New Life, Emily is shy, smart and beautiful – everything Dexter knows he should stay away from… everything he knows would be too easy for him to break.
But she makes him feel things he’d forgotten even existed. She makes him laugh, smile, care… forget. Without her trying, and without him realizing, Emily has wound her way into the one place he swore to keep locked away forever – his heart. But can she stay there when she discovers the dark past he’s so determined to keep hidden from her? Or will he destroy her too, just like he always expected?

Amanda’s 4 Star Review
What is it lately with all the cliffhangers. . . they are killing me!!! I stayed up all night because I had to finish this book, and when I saw the dreaded To be continued I wanted to throw my Kindle! I think I had every emotion with this book. . . I laughed at the hilarious banter, I wanted to cry for the tragedies they had endured, and at times I wanted to punch a few of them! But I loved every character in this book because they were all uniquely different and it totally worked!
“This is last chance saloon, doll. You need to know that if we do this – if you let me have you, I won’t ever be able to let you go.”
“Anyone can get lost on the wrong path, Dex. It’s whether you have the courage to turn back around that’s important.”
