Synopsis: Eddie Neff needs space. Not the type that country stars croon about, but physical distance from her emotionally distant father and the tatters of a broken relationship. So when the opportunity to relocate her life and interior design business arises, the answer comes easily.
Adjusting to life with Claire, her gregarious new roommate, is more than simply testing comfort limits. With just one meeting, Eddie finds herself unable to resist the draw of Harris Grant, Claire’s brooding and overprotective older brother.
Harris doesn’t fit her idea of a safe relationship. He pushes Eddie to face her deepest insecurities and fears of abandonment. And Harris holds on to his own painful loss, unable to overcome personal demons.
Eddie and Harris must learn to conquer their internal struggles. But as they navigate their new love, outside forces fight to drive them apart.
WHAT I THOUGHT:
I read this book rather quickly. I really liked Eddie and enjoyed seeing her spread her wings a little while trying to find herself in a new place. Initially I wasn't very sure about Harris and how he felt regarding Eddie, but once his feelings became clear, I was totally on board. I must also admit to being intrigued by Claire. She really had me guessing what was really going on with her.
Besides Eddie, I loved Sean and Luke. Those two were hilarious and adorable! I loved how they were great friends of Eddie's. I also enjoyed the wonderful descriptions of Chicago. I could totally picture myself in some of the scenes as an onlooker to the drama unfolding.
Olivia, the author, had me relaxed as I read the first half of the book, but once it became clear that things weren't so rosy, I was sitting on the edge of my seat hoping everything would be alright. I saw a lot of what was coming, but the twists at the end were a total surprise. Luckily for me, I had the second book on hand which I started right after I finished this one and was able to find out the rest of Eddie and Harris's story.
