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....

Yummy bad boy... strong heroine...

Any additional comments?

One thing I can say for Samantha Young is that she makes her female characters strong. Which for me is a big PLUS in a book. Having said that I think Alexa Holland was weaker than her past heroines have been but I still liked her. As for Caine Carraway... well he was your Rich, Hot, Bad Boy Boss! Scarred by his past and not willing to let anyone in. Which is the way we like them, right ladies? The story was ok... to some extent similar to many of the books out there now. So you might say then why did you give it 4 stars if you have heard it all before? Well... because even though I have read many books with this particular theme, Samantha Young's particular style of writing still makes it better then most and she is BRILLIANT in who she picks to narrate her books! Angelica Lee was perfect in her narration of this book and I truly believe that adds to the overall enjoyment of the book. If you are new to this author and you enjoy this book you need to read her On Dublin Street Series, it's amazing and once again the narration is fabulous.

IT BLEW ME AWAY & LEFT ME ON A HERO HIGH

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.
