In this sizzling companion to the critically acclaimed 738 Days, Stacey Kade once again creates a masterful combination of romance, angst, and thrills in the backdrop of a Hollywood film set.
At twenty-two, Calista Beckett is trying to overcome her early fame and fortune. The former savior of the world on Starlight is now a freshman at college—miles away from L.A. and her former existence. She sees it as her start to a new life, a normal life, one where she won’t make the same mistakes she made before—a brush with heroin addiction and losing her freedom to her controlling mother, thanks to a court order.
Eric Stone played her older brother, Byron, on Starlight. But she’s been in love with him pretty much since they kissed—her first kiss—while auditioning. When Eric shows up on campus out of the blue, Calista’s struck immediately by two things: first, in spite of everything that’s happened, she still feels something dangerous for him, and second, she’s absolutely determined not to let him ruin her life again.
Only Eric’s not going away so easily.

Kade's passionate and touching Hollywood-based contemporary romance is chock-full of drama, both on- and off-camera. Former costars Calista Beckett and Eric Stone haven't spoken in years. After a devastating car crash, they went their separate ways, despite sizzling chemistry and unresolved feelings. Now Calista is putting her life back together at a small Indiana university where she's pursuing an accounting degree. She has no plans to return to Hollywood until Eric shows up to offer her the lead role in his new production, a web series adapting her favorite book. With the weight of actively dysfunctional families pressing on both of them and the baggage of their pasts in their way, the chance of building a life together seems even slimmer, but Calista and Eric find their feelings even harder to ignore than before. This story is rich with sincerity and doesn't flinch away from showing its characters' flaws as they embrace the risks of life and love.
