The emotional and unforgettable new romance from the New York Times bestselling author of the On Dublin Street series.

Alexa Holland’s father was her hero—until her shocking discovery that she and her mother weren't his only family. Ever since, Alexa has worked to turn her life in a different direction and forge her own identity outside of his terrible secrets. But when she meets a man who’s as damaged by her father’s mistakes as she is, Alexa must help him.

Caine Carraway wants nothing to do with Alexa’s efforts at redemption, but it’s not so easy to push her away. Determined to make her hate him, he brings her to the edge of her patience and waits for her to walk away. But his actions only draw them together and, despite the odds, they begin an intense and explosive affair.

Only Caine knows he can never be the white knight that Alexa has always longed for. And when they're on the precipice of danger, he finds he’ll do anything to protect either one of them from being hurt again


I am a big fan of Samantha Young’s books.  Her On Dublin Street Series is one of my favorite romance series ever.  I was looking forward to her new book and most importantly, her new hero.

Samantha can write sexy.  She can give us hot, spicy, alpha males with hearts of gold.

Hero is one of those plots I like to call “The Mr. Darcy Romance”  you know, the hate to love stories, which in my opinion are the hottest type of romance!

Caine Carraway is a complex character, the type of character we romance lovers yearn for.  Broken, mysterious, secrets lurking around every corner…

His attraction to Alexa was instant to me.  He liked her so much, he hated himself for it so in turn tortured her and made her life miserable because of it…

This book was fast paced, emotionally driven and kept me hooked from beginning to end.  I laughed, I cried and I cheered hoping these two would get their happily ever after.

Samantha Young delivers on all counts!

4 Hearts from Me!

“Which was why my reaction to Caine was an anomaly. I could admit when a guy was a hot guy. But I was never attracted to hot guys, because I’d hand-wired my brain not to shoot off all the chemicals that would make me attracted to hot guys.

Caine Carraway in a business suit was gorgeous. Caine Caraway out of a suit was sexy as hell.

“You’re the one real thing in my life right now … You should know I don’t want to let that go.”          

“Ungentlemanliness?” he teased. “I dare you to say that five times fast.”  

“Oh those were the days.  I was a lowlu hooker looking for a white knight and he was a rich billionaire who didn’t know how to drive stick.  I showed him how and the rest is history.”

“I just wanted you, because despite what you might think, I see you. And no, you’re no fucking white knight, but you are what I want.”
