Where to buy:


Your life can change when you least expect it, but the love of the right person can make those changes bearable.

Mia Dechino is running from her traumatic past and the death of a loved one. Heartbroken and numb, she packs a bag and is ready to escape the small town in Georgia where she grew up. 

Heading off to Miami to start over, she meets Sebastian Price on an interview from hell. Sebastian is cocky, arrogant, and a womanizer but he might be what Mia is searching for. 

Mia tries to keep her distance from Sebastian but the connection between them is unavoidable. Their attraction slowly builds as the line between employee and employer blurs. 

At twenty-three years old, Mia has gone through more than most people have in a lifetime. Can Mia move past the pain she has in her heart and finally begin to be happy? Or will the guilt of a loved one’s death destroy her. 
*Recommended for 17+ due to subject matter and sexual content.


At the beginning of this book we learn a little about Mia, about why she is where she is right now, but not everything, which I appreciated as I wanted to keep reading to find out the rest for sure. I will admit when we are first to Sebastian and what her new job will be, I was not sure that this book was going to be for me, I was a little uncomfortable with the relationship between him and his employees, but I am glad I kept reading as it turned out that I really enjoyed this book, and am very eager to read the next one!

The thing I liked the most about this book I think is the character development, Mia comes a long way from the beginning of the book to the end, and a lot of it was because of the relationship that she has with Sebastian, he helps her grow out of the little bubble that she has put herself in for these past few months. Also Sebastian grows a lot because of having Mia in his life, and he gets better and better through the whole book.

The way that we learn about some of Mia's history is through flashbacks, and they were good, I liked the way that the author put how far back from the current time they were, it made it really easy to follow. It is not a very happy story from her past, but it is one that she still needs to deal with, because I don't think that she has. The way that Sebastian learns about her history is very upsetting to Mia, and she makes it very well known to him, and I think that this is part of the reason that she is hesitant to get in to any kind of relationship with him, she wants to leave everything behind, and now he knows.

Overall I would give this a 4/5, it was a nice quick read, nice for a Saturday night, I really am dying to read the second one because of the ending, I need to know what happens next!!!!
