Publisher Description

There's no such thing as unconditional love, right? Right?


I know it seems like I've got the world at my feet, but don't always believe what you see. Yes, I've won a scholarship to Australia to study koalas, and yes, the hottest stranger I've ever met kisses me almost the second I arrive. And sure, that stranger just happens to be in the dorm room down the hall from me and every time he looks at me I know exactly what he's thinking and it sends an excited thrill through me.

But Raphael doesn't know what I know: that my future is pretty much written and romance isn't a part of it, no matter how much I wish it was.


I wasn't planning on falling for the American student who has no idea who I am. Maci makes me smile and forget about the paparazzi stalking my every move. Suddenly I'm thinking about a life with her in it all the time, and that's a life I like the thought of. When I'm with her, I feel grounded and happy and ready to face anything. But there's something Maci is not telling me. Something she insists will make me not want her at all.

Something that, when I find out, makes me reassess what I thought I knew about life, love, and happy ever afters. Something that changes everything.

A well written storyline that will have you feeling so many emotions from laughing one minute to crying the next. The characters are amazing and have sizzling hot chemistry. Maci has Parkinson's disease but meditates, has good meds and does tai chi to control it. She won a scholarship to a college in Sydney, Australia. Her dad was killed by a drunk driver while he was jogging with their dog. Her mom suffers from Parkinson's disease and has had it for many many years. Raphael is sexy, does not trust easily, and has been through a lot. His sister met her prince and the royal family has certain expectations for Raph.
