Phoebe Taylor needs to be Nero de Santis's personal assistant. Her fiancee has been in a coma for two years and the hospital expenses are astronomical. Nero hasn't left his house in ten years. He controls his world from his isolation in his home.
Nero wants Phoebe with a passion that he doesn't want to face. His attraction to Phoebe burns in his soul yet he fights it because he thinks she can't handle him. Only Nero can see her pain and isolation that are behind the walls she has built around her heart.
This book was AMAZING! Nero was so damaged and as the book progressed, we discover more about what happened. My heart ached for Nero. I wanted to be Phoebe. The passion he had for her was intense. I loved the characters. Phoebe wasn't without her own scars. It takes two to make a whole and Phoebe and Nero complemented each other amazingly!
I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank You!
