Secrets from his past have scarred his heart. Can he trust her enough to learn to love again? 

In the eyes of the law, I’d atoned for the secrets of my past, but in my heart, I knew the debt I owed was too big to ever be repaid. I didn’t ask for forgiveness, because I knew I wasn’t worthy of it. Guilt weighed me down and scarred my heart.

If it wasn’t for my art, I’d probably be dead. The truth was, I had nothing else to live for. Or so I thought until Octavia Douglas came breezing unexpectedly into the picture. 

Sexy, stubborn, and smart enough to know better than to throw her future away on a guy like me, Vivi made me question everything I thought I already knew. I suddenly craved the happy ever after I’d never dared dream of, and knew I didn’t deserve.

Really enjoyed this story, although it took me a while to actually warm up to Zed; from the start, I just couldn't understand his brusque behavior, but the more I read the more it began to make sense. And then I felt bad because of how much and for how long he's still punishing himself. Even without knowing the cause of his behavior at the start of the book, I could totally empathize with his choices regarding the event in the first chapter; I wouldn't want something like that event jeopardizing my business and livelihood.

Octavia finds herself disillusioned by her life and the way it's not turning out like she envisioned, especially given the current situation she finds in herself, when it comes to the law firm she works for and the son of a client, which is how she and Zed end up meeting.

I liked the chemistry between these two, but goodness, they refused to admit their feelings about each other; but that is what kept me engaged and wanting to see how they would manage to work through their respective issues and how they'd help one another accept the way things in life are, and how they reached their HEA.

MV ELLIS knows what it’s like to fall head over heels in love with a badass musician. She followed her heart halfway around the world to be with one. She moved from London to Sydney after a steamy holiday romance with a sexy bass player in sultry Brazil.

Twelve years, two children and a dog later, and she’s still smitten. All this with a guy she sat next to on a bus for 36 hours! She has toured internationally as a “WAG,” and her experiences inspire her writing.

Ellis’s love of romance began when she was 11 years old, after a summer spent secretly reading her auntie’s books. She’s been a sucker for an alpha hero and strong heroine ever since.

An avid reader, Ellis always knew she’d write a book of her own one day. She was right about that. Following a career spanning advertising, marketing, and social media, she finally wrote Catching London in 2017.
