“This story was brutal truth wrapped in hope, courage and unflinching love. It’s a must read. It’s a STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING AND READ THIS NOW kind of book. Don’t hold your breath, this story will steal it from you.” – J. Sterling, NYT Bestselling Author
My fairy tale is upside down.
A happily never after.
I kissed the prince and he turned into a fraud.
I was a fool, and his love – fool’s gold.
Now there’s a new player in the game, August West.
One of the NBA’s brightest stars.
He wants me. I want him.
But my past, my fraudulent prince, just won’t let me go.
*Author’s Note: There are aspects of this story that may be sensitive for some readers.
August and Iris take you on a roller coaster of emotions throughout the book. I loved their story and I really loved how August stood up for her. The physical chemistry between them is good, but what really sold them to me as a couple is their emotional chemistry. The author spends a considerable amount of the novel developing them as a couple with very little physical intimacy and it pays off.
August is a genuinely good guy, and despite the fact that he’s a well-known basketball player, he doesn’t have the ego that usually goes with it. I loved watching the bond develop between him and Iris; it was very sweet.
I cannot mention how awesome August’s stepbrother Jared and Iris’s friend Lotus were. They were great supporting characters.
Every minute spent reading this book was enjoyable. For me, one of the best things about this book was just how easy it was to read. Do yourself a favor and add this to your TBR list today! You won’t be disappointed! : )
