Although voice reflection done well. The men’s voices especially the main character was as if he was an elderly man. I did not like at all. A young dashing aristocrat with accent of 90 year old. Yikes

Hannah is distraught when her parents are murdered - and worse, she should have been at home with them...not meeting her forbidden love, Reece. Unable to face the community and her guilt, she runs away and marries him. But Reece controls her completely, and when she gets pregnant - against his wishes - he pushes her down the stairs as she approaches her due date. When she wakes in the hospital and he tells her the baby died, she runs again.

Love then bought process of the theme of the book, but I felt a bit out there for the characters to actually do what author wrote.

A successful LA artist, Roman Velasco appears to have everything he could possibly want - money, women, fame. Only Grace Moore, his reluctant, newly hired personal assistant, knows how little he truly has. The demons of Roman's past seem to echo through the halls of his empty mansion and out across his breathtaking Topanga Canyon view. But Grace doesn't know how her boss secretly wrestles with those demons: by tagging buildings as the Bird, a notorious but unidentified graffiti artist - an alter ego that could destroy his career and land him in prison.

As a big fan of Ms Rivers I excepted more. A good story line but events were repeated in flashbacks, personal experience and retelling. It felt as though it was merely a page quota or the reader couldn’t remember from chapter to chapter. Her over details of nonessential did not add to the story but seemed again needed to reach word
