I started reading this book just two days ago and completely fell in love with Matt and Cara, and their relationship. The protagonists were so well introduced in the book that you couldn't help falling in love with them. The story takes you to a whole other place during the first part (the trip in Sri Lanka) and you can't help but be brought back to reality at the sams time as Cara and suddenly everything goes downhill.

This book was full of steamy sex scenes, drama and plot twists and what made

This was an incredible read. The story was amazing. I loved that the story first takes place in Sri Lanka. My parents were born there and I really like books that tell more about the Sri Lankan culture. The characters were introduced really well into the story. Matt and Cara are amazing and I fell in love with them and their relationship. Matt is an English cricket captain and he is hot. Cara is a student who went to Sri Lanka. I thought she was cute and smart. There were a lot of steamy scenes ...more

No words. Except cheating, which was part of the book, is sanctioned here, and for the reader's sake. Cheating is WRONG except and only in fiction when it's okay, because it's not real. Cara needed a break and she found it in Matt Curran, an international cricket player, during vacation. Full of twists and turns, as well as the ENDING, was interesting. Forbidden romance is always fascinating for a read, but this situation was peculiar but different. The book was wonderfully curated, but very sho ...more

This book was very well written. The plot was good and something I've not read before ..maybe in bias I like cricket... therfore u liked reading about the cricketer.

This was a wonderful and exciting book! I thought it was written well and had a ton of suspense which kept me up late finishing it far sooner than anticipated! It's a romance with a dash of thrill.

I don't know where to begin.
I'm soo taken away by this book. 😍😍
I read this book 2 years ago on wattpad while searching for books with the hashtag cricket and came around it and I had an all nighter cause this book had cast a spell on me and I couldn't sleep without reaching the end of the book.
And trust me, it was worth it. ❤❤❤❤
And today I read this book again for the 7th time and it was still worth it. ❤❤🙌
The bond between Matt and Cara is sooo beautifully written and all the steamy sex scenes
