**Received by Author in exchange of honest review****
I absolutely loved this book, but be warned this is not your usual sweet love story, Amber has ben hurt, badly, an unfortunate occurrence of being in the wrong place at the wrong time and falling for the wrong guy who would eventually suck the will and life out of you, leaving you defenceless and incapable of making your own decisions, co-dependant to the point of sick obsession, in theory just the basis of an abused relationship; so the story begins with Amber in the present time living as a recluse in her own house, afraid to even walk out of her bedroom, plagued by constant hurtful memories and suffering from anxiety attacks, being the daughter of one of Hollywood A lister actors make things even worse as the knowledge that behind the gates awaits a stream of paparazzi's ready to snap that big picture for their next story. Enter Jaime, or "Jimmy" he is an Argentinian guy who comes from a hard working catholic family and thinks he's the luckiest guy alive for landing a great job in the heart of Hollywood prestigious neighbourhoods working for a big star as one of his security guards.
As soon as Jaime meets Amber he knows things are not right, he's been asked to protect the annexe where she is, but has no idea why this beautiful girl looks so heartbroken. He knows the information is so easily accessible, just one click and he could have all the answers but he doesn't want to be like everyone else, he wants to make her smile and perhaps one day get close enough for her to open up, however things take a fast turn and suddenly lines are being crossed, old habits are hard to kick and patterns are repeated, if things are meant to work out our leads have to come to difficult decisions in order to start afresh and with a clear and honest heart.
So throughout the book, we get to hear from both Amber's and Jaimie's POV's, which I absolutely loved it allows us to really get an understanding of the root of the problem, the severity of Amber's issues and the courage it takes to put into practice that if you really love someone, you must set it free.
A heartfelt and powerful story of survival and true love.
