After the video of his public outburst catapulted him to superstardom, Marcus now has everything he ever wanted. Or so he thought. Be careful what you wish for, his mother always told him…
After spending two years touring the globe, he’s growing tired, and that endless line of women has become a sea of blurry and meaningless faces. When he returns home and receives a visit from Naomi, his previous object of affection, he finally starts to look at himself and what he’s become. He doesn’t like it.
Something has to change…
On the surface, Lisa is a pretty simple girl. She goes to work, spends time with her friends, and adores her dog, Perry. She loves the quiet life and isn’t interested in the bright lights of Marcus’s world. So when he takes an interest in her, she makes it very clear that she doesn’t want what he’s offering. You see, Lisa has secrets, and being seen with Marcus will be the key to her undoing.
Being a man used to getting what he wants, Marcus won’t be taking no for an answer. For the first time, he has met someone who he feels a definite connection with, and he won’t be taking no for an answer – even if it means inadvertently ruining everything Lisa has worked so hard to conceal…
Will Marcus and Lisa find a way to deal with her secrets and be together? Or will she push him away, ensuring Marcus is destined to always have his affections unreturned?
I’ll be honest, I was divided on my thoughts of Marcus from the previous book, A Beautiful Melody and once again in this book. He was a flirt and looking for his love but with the wrong woman. That’s why he had my pity. He was unfulfilled. I truly love stories where they meet their match and of all the stories in this series, I believe this is my favourite.
This is my favourite story in the series, not because Marcus is treated in a way he should but for Lisa. She is touch, she’s sassy and she’s doing all she can to keep her true identity hidden. I read this book in one sitting because I wanted to know Lisa’s secret.
What really gave me delight in reading this was the way Marcus had his work cut out for himself. He has to work not to win her heart but to even get Lisa to look at him. An unconventional romance for unconventional characters. This series just gets better and better with each book. The characters are multi-dimensional and are full of surprises.
I thought Lilliana was the force behind young adult with her other series Drawn but I take that back, she is the queen of second chance at love stories.
I bought a copy of this book with my own money.
