Description de l’éditeur
If you never get lost, you'll never be found . . .
Twenty-one-year-old Natalia Stolfi is saying good-bye to the past and turning her life upside down with a trip to the land down under. For the next six months, she'll act like a carefree exchange student, not a girl sinking under the weight of painful memories. Everything is going according to plan until she meets a brooding surfer with hypnotic green eyes and the troubling ability to see straight through her act.
Bran Lockhart is having the worst year on record. After the girl of his dreams turned into a nightmare, he moved back home to Melbourne to piece his life together. Yet no amount of disappointment could blind him to the pretty California girl who gets past all his defences. He's never wanted anyone the way he wants Talia. But when Bran gets a stark reminder of why he stopped believing in love, he and Talia must decide if what they have is once in a lifetime . . . or if they were meant to live a world apart.

Riley's debut delivers gut-punching emotions, sexy sizzle, and wry humor in a contemporary new adult story line. Natalia Stofli, a 21-year old Californian, heads to Melbourne as an exchange student. She plans to reboot herself as Talia 2.0, live life to the fullest, and get control of her obsessive/compulsive tendencies. Her plans are almost derailed when she meets Australian student Bran Lockhart, as he quickly sees through her performance and straight into her heart. Bran's casual, gruff manner hides a tormented soul and secrets. Talia is puzzled by his push-pull signals, so she gives smart-alecky responses to hide her attraction. As Talia's past becomes clear, Bran's roommate and an ex-fianc sabotage their on-again/off-again relationship. And though Talia and Bran do become committed to each other, the conclusion holds many more questions than answers. This book is thought-provoking and lyrical, gripping from beginning to end. Readers should note that the entire trilogy focuses on Talia and Bran, with their ultimate happy ending presumably to come at the end of book three.
