My Review:

When someone deliberately lies when starting out on a new relationship you just know there are going to be dramatic repercussions – and that is certainly true in this romance!

After working hard training to become a highly competent Veterinary Surgeon, Summer Wynters is ready for a summer escape where she kicks off the traces and lets her hair down. She’s even got a friend who can help her do just that so the game is on. Her best friend is a model with the the manager of highly successful singer/songwriter Michael Angel, Summer’s dream hot date. Dressed up, with a seat front centre stage the classic eyes meet across the stage . . . and they’re hooked on each other. Now that causes unforeseen problems as neither believe in love, let alone love at first sight, she’s pretending to be a model and he is haunted by his past. With some hilarious misunderstandings, hot chemistry and lies to drive them apart this is a tumultuous romance where past mistakes need to be faced, forgiveness and understanding to be developed to enable their future happiness to be achieved.

There are some great characters in this story. What a traumatised hero Malcolm Angel is! As his past is slowly revealed, his actions to cover his inner torment are emotively described, making him a wounded hero who is easy to relate to. In contrast, Dr Summer Wynters is a focussed, hard working, highly intelligent and caring young lady who also has largely overcome tragedy in her past and is now ready to really live. The real question is will the two help each other heal, learn to trust each other and work together to achieve their HEA or will life, others and struggles get in their way? Watch out for Winston when you read it – he’s just adorable!

Many thanks to YA Bound Book Tours for organising this tour and providing an ARC of this novel in exchange for my honest review.


Summary from Goodreads:

Straight-laced, veterinary surgeon, Summer Wynters is ready to break the rules. And who better to break them with than the most irreverent of all men, mega rock star Malcolm Angel? With one last summer free from work obligations, Summer moves to New York City, and at the coaxing of her friend, pretends to be a model so she can spend one wild night with Malcolm.

Rock star, Malcolm Angel, tortured by a dark past, may be the poet laureate of romance, but he, like science-minded Summer, has never believed in romantic love. How could he? With his history, he doesn’t deserve to be loved.

When Summer’s honesty, kindness, and exuberance for life changes his perspective, the two discover they are in deeper than either dreamed possible. But when Malcolm discovers Summer’s been perpetuating a lie, will he forgive her? Even if forgiveness is possible, can a man immune to love teach someone else to believe in it?
