Words cannot describe how well written this book is. Emma is just clinging on to life by her finger nails. After 22 years of putting up with a bitter vindictive mother she gathers what's left of her courage and runs away. Meeting the man who will eventually save her.

Such a wonderful story of true love. I was crying in places and my heart went out to Emma and her suffering. At times it reminded me of my traumatic upbringing. The hatred she writes about was so poignant.

A wonderful story which will have you engrossed. Top marks to the author.

Good read

Love a book with British characters but its seems this pair had more to learn from each other than vocabulary.

lots going on in this read its not fast paced but intriguing.

Escaping abuse fleeing to the America Emma ends up with a room mate she certainly wasnt expecting.

Aiden certainly wasn't expecting to fall fast and hard,Emma is a puzzle this detective wants to solve and at the same time he has the urge to protect her, kiss away the hurt.

Twists and turns throughout the book slight dark elements with drama but a whole lot of loving too.

Aiden is a sweet bbf making this a good read

22yr old Emma has grown up suffering abuse from her alcoholic mother. She has not been shown love, and with the help of her one friend, she escapes to the US. Emma is keen to experience life, away from her controlling mother, and this is how she meets Aiden.

The abuse Emma has suffered has affected the way she interacts with others, and the story follows her as she adjusts. You feel for her, when she doesn't know how to act in certain situations. Through the POV of both Aiden and Emma you see how they work through the issues that arise, Emma with her self doubt and sense of worthlessness, and Aiden wishing he could protect and care for her.

Michelle Horst has written this story beautifully. From the slight language differences between English and American, through to the difficult scenes between Emma and her mother. There are some sex scenes, but not excessive. Again, the violence is fitting to the storyline, when it occurs. But the story is more about the mental abuse. This is a book is one that once I picked it up, I didn't want to put it down again until I finished.

I loved Emma from the off, such a mixture of feelings surged all at once. She maybe 22 but what with what was going on she seems/feels younger to me and you want to protect her. The hero Aiden came along...swoon worthy strong character.

Need more.

I have only recently discovered Michelle's books & what a discovery!

I loved Aiden! He was an absolute darling & as for Emma, well what can I say. She was a delight & almost childlike in her outlook & behaviour. Your heart has to go out to her, but she is a beautiful person despite her mother's best attempts to destroy her! I always have a Hankie at the ready because Michelle seems to have a knack of pulling at your heart strings! This book was no exception!

This is definitely worth 5 stars in my view. I'm off to read the next in the series.

Keep up the good work Michelle!

PS I like the mixing between the American & British cultures. It's fun & makes a nice change from always being totally based in the good old U S of A!

Loved this book from the beginning. Completely fell in love with Aiden, what a fantastic book boyfriend. Kind, considerate, loving and hot💕 Emma has endured years of abuse from her mother with no support from her family. Emma needs saving, and Aiden needs someone to save. A love story with a few twists and turns, heartbreaking in places, but nevertheless a lovely story. Looking forward to continuing the series.
