“I walked away from him… but I left my heart behind.”
At eighteen, Lux shatters Sebastian’s heart – and breaks her own in the process.
When their paths cross again unexpectedly in New York City, Lux does her best to feign indifference toward her first love. But the harder she tries to hold Sebastian at arm’s length, the more determined he becomes to uncover the secrets she’s been keeping about their past… and the true reason she broke his heart seven years earlier.
She’s as much in love with him as ever; he’s just as furious at her for leaving. But beneath the anger, forbidden attraction still simmers… and it’s only a matter of time before it boils over.
When the past is finally unearthed, the monsters Lux spent seven years running from will finally catch up to her. And nothing – not even her love for Sebastian – will be enough to save her…

What can I say, Julie slays this one yet again. Tackling a tough topic that shouldn’t remain silent and weaving relationships of love and sibling sacrifice, Julie’s words paint a picture and make the story too real and so beautiful. I love everything she has ever written and this one doesn’t disappoint. Thanks Julie for your incredible words.
