Despite the rumors and warnings regarding Connor Black and his use and misuse of women, Ellery finds herself being drawn into his world.
Ellery knows they can never be together because she is harboring a deep secret that could destroy Connor emotionally forever.
Join Connor and Ellery as they embark on a journey of courage, love and strength. Will it be enough to save them?
This book was a total emotional rollercoaster ride and while listening to it I experienced frustration, laughter,anger,sadness and joy. I have to admit I cried during a great part of it, I mean sobbed. It’s a very emotional storyline.
Ellery was diagnosed with cancer at sixteen and now at twenty-three it is back, both parents are dead and her boyfriend of four years just dumped her.
Connor Black, a very rich, thirtyish CEO of his family company wants noting to do with “happy ever after” and just has casual sex with women and send them on their way. Something devastating happened to him when he was eighteen and it has shaped his life.
When these two strong-willed people get together you’d better look out because it will not be smooth sailing.
They get their HEA but the journey there shouldn’t be wished on anyone.
