Book 1 of the Closely Guarded Series!
Many might envy Alixandra Quinn. She rubs shoulders with the rich and famous at glitzy society balls and fund-raisers as a photographer for a popular magazine. But, do the envious notice Ali always goes home alone? She has cut herself off from personal relationships and emotional entanglements. It’s a strategy to cope with her past, and for ten years, her strategy has worked.
That is, until she meets Bryce Steede, a young and bold Silicon Valley entrepreneur. When Ali becomes the center of his attention, suddenly her world gets turned upside-down. She may have convinced herself that life is fine the way it is, but he is determined to break down her carefully constructed walls, free her mind and body, and show her pleasures that she couldn't have imagined.
As Ali navigates through this uncharted journey of self-discovery, she must find the balance between her head and her heart. Is Bryce just another heartache waiting to happen? Will a secret from her past come back to haunt her? Or will Ali make peace with her past and find true happiness . . .
I loved the character development and the strong female lead. You feel like this is a movie playing in your head as you read. This isn’t a standard pulp romance! There is a cliffhanger at the end — I’m hoping for the second book SOON!
Thought the book was awesome. Great story. Never got slow. Thought everything was well developed. Loved reading dialogue that would have come straight out of my mouth. Can't wait for the sequel!
