I really enjoyed this book. We all know that by the title that the ending is not a happy one, but I still liked the story. I loved the fact it was written from the male side of things. This is the 4th book I have read by Nelle and I was not disappointed.
Ryan Madewell is hot, sexy and comes from a very rich family. His father is a cold-hearted workaholic that has been grooming Ryan to take over the business but he has no interest in doing what so ever. His Mother spends most of her time drinking and being very unpleasant.
Ryan works as a reporter for an art magazine, he does the job but he knows his heart is not in it. What he dreams of is becoming a book writer. but first he needs to learn how to write from the heart.
On his way to do some research for the magazine he goes to an art museum where he runs in to Allee, a tour guide, and he gets her to show him around.
Allee Adair has no one in her life, her parents died a long time ago so Allee is a strong women who has learned how to take care of her self.
Allee has to work as a tour guide in an art museum, that she loves, and as a "masseuse" to pay back her loans from when she was studying. (Ok I am not going to say any more on that or it will give the game way.) Allee has big dreams of becoming a curator for an art museum in Paris. Everything she has done she did to survive, and it is her inner strength that keeps her going.
They both have this instant connection and despite all the secrets they manage to rescue their relationship. The passion and desire they have for one another is what keeps them strong. Their love is most pure and nothing in this world can change it, one of a kind.
I was reading the last half of this at work on my night shift and I finally finished it at 5 in the morning with tears running down my face, this book surely get your emotions going. Nelle is an amazing writer, the characters each hold their own. There is a lot of steamy sex in this book and it was good to hear it from the male side of things. The whole flow of the book was fabulous and heartbreaking all at once.
