Synopsis

When Sidney Chandler chooses to leave home she walks away from her life as she knows it… her family…

Him…

She stepped back, allowing them all to heal… move on… live without her…

Now at the age of twenty nine and almost a decade behind her, she is a master of disguise. Long gone is the timid girl who lived blinded by the ideas of love.

Until fate decides to intervene and the one man she has struggled to evade at all costs is pushed back into her life.

He knows the real girl behind the façade, only he can pull her out of her self-imposed exile… breathing life back into her cold, protected heart.

Fate will do what fate wants and Sidney’s choices are no longer her own… but were they ever really hers to begin with?

***Derek – #NerdGirlDad’s Review***

 If you are one of those who assume that all romance books follow a simple formula – Girl meets rich man (usually older and with either a title or powerful job), girl hates him, then ends up in his arms/bed etc.: you need to re-think. In this tale you meet the hero and heroine more as combatants when they are in their teens than as prospective lovers, but the attraction seems one sided and Sidney  leaves home  with a broken heart. (Home, by the way is in the Hamptons so it was to escape the family and Simon that she left) and the next ten years are accounted for, but the way it was done lost the author one of the potential five stars. It was, in my opinion (and I notice of at least one other reviewer), too dragged out. The loss of a hundred pages or so covering that part would have been an improvement. Having said that I would not like the job of cutting the hundred pages; it’s far too well written.
