Publisher's Summary

The emotional and unforgettable new romance from the New York Times best-selling author of the On Dublin Street series.
Alexa Holland's father was her hero - until her shocking discovery that her mother and she weren't his only family. Ever since, Alexa has worked to turn her life in a different direction and forge her own identity outside of his terrible secrets. But when she meets a man who's as damaged by her father's mistakes as she is, Alexa must help him.
Caine Carraway wants nothing to do with Alexa's efforts at redemption, but it's not so easy to push her away. Determined to make her hate him, he brings her to the edge of her patience and waits for her to walk away. But his actions only draw them together and, despite the odds, they begin an intense and explosive affair.
Only Caine knows he can never be the white knight that Alexa has always longed for. And when they're on the precipice of danger, he finds he'll do anything to protect either one of them from being hurt again....

Their's was a love/hate relationship as Alexa and Caine's first meeting was disastrous and it didn't get much better after that as tensions, tempers and a life-altering shared family secret in their pasts, made their relationship very volatile. But there was high sexual tension between them and an explosive chemistry which came across so well with witty banter, moody melodrama and longing looks which took just one passionate kiss to ignite it into a frenzied affair.

But Caine, the handsome self-made billionaire, was a man who had secrets, kept a hard shell around his damaged heart and always professed he's never in it for the long haul. His jackass behaviour reached epic heights with Alexa however she was strong, feisty and caring and she saw beyond it all, understood him, loved him and hoped she might just be the one to uncover the real Caine if only he'd let her in rather than let her go.

Alexa and Caine were two great characters and the brilliantly written intense, emotional passion filled story had me sucked in as there was just the right balance between humor, drama, angst, sex, thrills, twists and heartache. Told from Alexa's POV by a narrator that created a mesmerising non-stop listen that kept me riveted until the very end.

Worth the credit? The characters evolved and the storyline built and built until it's climactic ending as it told of a love story that should never have worked but thankfully it did. So creditworthy..... oh yeah it was much much more than I ever hoped for.

Same old fifty shades based plot :(

The self made millionaire who floats from model to model falls for the normal looking woman who has to fight for him and the unbury the secrets that form his character. I have read quite a few Samantha Young books from the "On Dublin Street" series and I love the witty banter, story and character development, her writing style in general is awesome. So I wanted to see what she would attempt of for an American based drama. As expected quality wise - I was not at all disappointed.

But I am getting a bit sick of this same old plot line where the guy decides never to commit from the start and the girl who has her own insecurity issues must face the added challenge of cracking his 50 shells. Because there are so many books of the same plot, the book moves in a very obvious direction making every scene so very predictable. I did buy the book knowing that this may have happened but I had hoped that Ms. Young, may have added a more interesting curve ball to the plot (even side couples/stories would have been nice).

If you love Samantha Young, go ahead and spend the credit. If you are still swooning for 50 shades the 10th installment because you just can't understand that E L Jame only wrote 3 books, spend the credit. But if you do really want a different plot-line where maybe the guy really chases the girl and the relationship is actually unpredictable, I would pass on this one and pick it up later if it were on sale.
