About the book
From the moment she met him, Ella Peterson had questions. As always, though, she’s too shy to ask.
Older and sexy as hell, mysterious Adam Brook soon sweeps sheltered Ella off her feet; but is he as perfect as he appears to be, or is there more to him than he’s telling her?

Ella’s world has already turned upside down after moving from England to rural Kansas. She and her sisters were hoping for a more secure future, but instead find that life can be tough when jobs are scarce and the stakes often higher than anticipated.

When events spiral out of Ella’s control, she learns the person she needs to rely on most is herself and her instincts on who to trust in the future. It’s just that her instincts are screaming at her to trust Adam; it’s what he tells her that makes that a problem.

Ella and her family have relocated to the US and are trying to gain a financial foothold to secure their new lives. Unfortunately they have had to borrow to do so and finding jobs is proving more difficult that they thought it would be.

When she is left alone to sell produce at a local market she not only becomes the target of a bunch of leering creeps, she also attracts the attention of a handsome stranger. Someone older who wants to help and protect her, but what is he hiding beneath the respectable exterior?

Ella is young, naive and inexperienced when it comes to sexual activity. Something Adam finds endearing, he is up for being the one to teach her a trick or two.

It's urban border crime and romance. A story of the difference between lust and love.

Although the more amorous scenes aren't too explicit this isn't a book I would necessarily recommend to a young adult. Mainly because the abuse, control and misogynistic tropes are romanticised at times. The handsome man can be forgiven for any misstep, wrong word or action, because hey he is just super handsome with a delicious body, right?

But perhaps that was the point of Ella's story - to point out what girls and women have to go through on a daily basis. From the catcalls, the sexual innuendo, the inappropriate staring and touching, and that is without counting the molestation and rape. Teaching all women that it isn't cute or acceptable no matter how charming the man.
