My name is Melodi White, I had a dream once like every other girl does. Then one day, my dream was torn to shreds, by my sister’s evil boyfriend, Jacob. It’s been three years since she was ripped from my life. She wasn’t just any sister; no, she was my twin, my best friend.
Deciding to follow our childhood dream of moving to New York, I head for a life of adventure and fun. A night on the town and I find myself wrapped in the arms of one gorgeous, drop-dead-sexy man, Corban. He has literally swept me off my feet, taken my breath away with a single kiss and left me wanting more, a feeling completely alien to me.
Corban Andrews, CEO of Case Construction, rich, sexy and ravishing is set to make my world come undone. I allow myself to put my trust in him, but will his rules and my trust issues let us explore what we could have together? It’s either that or am I at risk of staying lost and alone.
When a blast from my past reappears, I know I may be pushed so far down the rabbit hole, Corban and I just may not survive. It all comes down to survival and choices. I have no idea which I will choose.

I didn't know what to expect when I started reading but I must say that it captured my full attention and did not let go until the end, and even then I wanted more!! This book had love, drama, suspense and passion that really completed the story.
You will run through many emotions while reading this book but I will say that it keeps your attention until the last page and boy was I left with my mouth hanging open. Ms Liz Lovelock, I can't wait for the next book in the series because I have to know what happens. 5 Lovely Stars
~ Review by Kara
Melodi is a young naive woman, trying to find her way after the disappearance of her twin sister, Abby. Corban is "one sexy God like man" who falls instantly in love with Melodi. Their story is sweet and fresh and adorable. Although their feelings for each other happen too suddenly, it is natural and true. 32% in and I wanted to marry Corban! His words were beautiful and I could FEEL they were genuine.
"I plan to stay with her for as long as she will have me."
The story line kept getting better and better! To the point where I was turning the pages so quickly I had to back track a couple times! Melodi's friends are great characters and police officer Blake is one hot piece that I hope we learn more about in the next book. The end was unbelievably good!!
4 (lovey-dovey) stars from me.

A huge playful smile swipes across his face, which sets my chest racing. “I’m sure you will be fine. Anyway, Melodi, I would love to stay and get to know you a little better, but unfortunately, I have a meeting in about twenty minutes, which I probably shouldn’t be late for.” He reaches his hand out like he is about to shake my hand. You’re seriously not just going to shake my hand!
Surprising me for the second time, he takes my hand, placing a gentle kiss across my knuckles, and then pulls me close, pressing his lips to mine. I taste him; boy, he tastes good. It’s nothing like our kiss the other night. This is more…more sensual.
Savouring the moment, until his cologne drifting around me drives me crazy, igniting a raging fire within me. My arms wrap around his neck, pulling him closer to me. Our kiss becomes more heated.
I remember we are standing in the middle of the footpath when a car goes past blasting its horn. I’m not sure if it’s at us or something else. I slowly pull away, placing one more gentle kiss to his warm lips. Mine already ache from the loss. We stay where we are, holding each other, neither of us wanting to move.
His eyes blaze brighter; I can even see a sparkle. Leaning into me, he whispers, “Until next time, my sweet Melodi.” Feeling his breath on my cheek sends goose bumps over my entire body.
