Christina | 4418 comments At sixteen, Dee Johnson gambled her heart on her best friend Jed Brown – and lost when he disappeared without a trace.

Ten years on, Dee’s life is uprooted when Jed turns up on her doorstep, asking for her help.

Dee has been left behind by everyone she’s loved: her parents, her close friend Alexia, and a stream of lovers. She moves fast with men and suspects this is why they move on fast. Now that’s Jed’s back in her life, she’s taking no chances. Despite the attraction ripping at her seams, she holds back, knowing she wouldn't recover from being loved and left by him a second time.

A constant traveler, Jed has only felt at home once in his life – with Dee. Now that he’s found her again, he's determined to make up for lost time. He'll never leave her again.

Until an unexpectedly royal revelation threatens to strip Jed of his freedom and future – including his place by Dee’s side.

Rachmi  | 4945 comments Christina, I just finished it! It was so engaging I forgot to post ny progress here, lol. Anyway, we can still discuss it, right? Even without my progress :D But well since it's 1:49 am here and I bet you're mostly sleeping now, we'll do it tomorrow. One thing for sure, I enjoyed this one much more than The Cinderella Princess :)


Christina | 4418 comments Yes I was sleeping ;) it's nearly 11am now. I'm liking this series a a lot! Glad you like them too

@chapter 2 (view spoiler)


Noella (kookiemonstar) | 3723 comments Up to chapter 2 atm and finding this very different to the first book in the series. There's more lust here whereas the first book was cute and fluffy

Yes, there are more sex scenes in this book than in book 1. But I liked the story better than book 1. And Dee is so lovable :)


Noella (kookiemonstar) | 3723 comments I don't feel like I really got to know their backstory. The beginning said they were 7 months best friends before Dee decided to act on her desire. I'd rather it was written about rather than implied. Now they're reunited and they can't help feel a strong attraction again and it's physical...

I don't feel like there's enough backstory either, we're just kind of thrown into it.

Christina | 4418 comments But on a guy I find it a bit odd :P I prefer short hair


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 83063 comments Mod
Ah! I read it wrong! I thought it was him telling her that he liked her bun! on a guy that is just totally wrong.

Same here, long hair is ok, but a bun? not my thing haha


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 83063 comments Mod
I'm not the biggest fan of long hair on a guy, but yeah, a bun sounds really weird.

Haha, it's just me then that really like man with hair bun :D

I agree - I hated that they just up and left. I wish Ellie had at least let Jed say goodbye, even if he couldn't have given an explanation about why they were leaving.

It was quite strange to leave it for 10 years before finding her - it was almost unbelievable that he just stayed away for so long, because he was an adult much sooner than the 10 years, more like 3 years!


Jessica (noseinabookbook) | 907 comments Christina wrote: "But on a guy I find it a bit odd :P I prefer short hair"

I'm mostly ok with shaggier hair on a guy as long as he keeps it clean and neat, but long hair and definitely the man bun just kept giving me the wrong picture! I kept visualizing my hair on Jed and it made me laugh every time!

I ended up giving it 4 stars because I really enjoyed it, but then again, I'm sort of a sucker for quick romantic reads.


Noella (kookiemonstar) | 3723 comments Hahaha this book has definitely made me take more notice of man buns on the street
