Cleo is a multi-million dollar Hollywood star, loved by many and admired by all but underneath all that glitz and glamour hides the real person Chloe, a shy girl with no self-esteem or confidence in herself. A person who after being shot by her ex-boyfriend, decides to take some time out for herself, a detox to rediscover who she is to be. But within a few days at the cabin, her spiritual healer has to leave due to a family emergency but she sends her nephew. Adam Black as her replacement.
As luck, would have it, Chloe had already met Adam a year prior at her friend Christian’s birthday party and within moments of meeting him again, he demands she give him the only bed in the one-room cabin. Her blatant refusal aggravates him as does her idea they just share the same bed. From there, they continue to butt heads but at the same time, their attraction towards each other grows. Although, Adam keeps refusing to go any further for he wants to be with a native girl.
Chloe and Adam’s own journey to self-discovery is a long one for they both share idiotic idealism's. Adam for example believes he will only be truly happy to be in a relationship with a Native woman and well, Chloe she annoyed me from the start with her feelings of rejection because Adam didn’t fawn over her from the start – ie. When they initially met, he was on a date with Violet (Christian’s sister). She expected him to be completely infatuated by her and although that might be part of her growing attraction to him, she shouldn’t have felt rejected that he ignored her or didn’t put her first.
As with all of Elin Peer's books, there is always something else that has to happen before the HEA can happen and I loved what happened next! I felt they needed the distance to reveal they both missed and loved one another – yes, I am a hopeless romantic at heart. Their own journey back to each other was exciting and although I am a little saddened by the end of this series, I loved each and every book released. Plus, Chloe and Adam’s story was the perfect ending to this series.
I highly recommend them!
