Ric Ryker managers to change his life around so when his former step-sister sees him again, he is a new man. Annalesa might not recognise him at their graduation party but the same feelings are there. Her love for the man who has been a constant in her life until recently doesn’t change even after his silence and transformation. To her, he is always perfect. Ric never believed anyone could truly love him and is hell-bent on a path of revenge where everyone gets hurt.
This is more than just a forbidden romance; it is a tale of revenge, pain, discovery, and serious arms deals. Rollins has taken the romance of step siblings and framed it in a setting of business and self-discovery. Her characters are complex and their enduring love isn’t straightforward.
The story is a unique one spanning two continents and many countries with their culture and language differences. It is also full of complicated emotional scenes so keep the tissues handy.
