Emma Barton is drowning. A single mother of a son with a genius-level IQ and Autism, she’s given up on love to focus on the child who needs her. Her writing aspirations—the only dream she hasn’t abandoned—withers as her latest novel bombs, and she’s dropped by her publisher.
Ethan Wise, an A-list actor, wants an Oscar, but he’d settle for being something other than a romantic comedy lead or a beefcake superhero. Discovering Emma’s novel happened by chance, but it could also be his opportunity to finally become a serious actor.
When Ethan seeks Emma out to buy the movie rights to her novel, they fall so passionately in love their lives are turned upside down.
Emma wants to be with Ethan, but there’s her son to consider and the secrets she’s kept to protect him. She’ll do anything to keep her little boy’s world safe and happy.
She’d even give up the love of her life.
Sue’s Review –
I just love the way that Michelle Alstead writes!!! She puts in so much that you can not stay totally engrossed in the story – wanting to read until the end!!!
Ethan is an actor and comes from a family of writers. When his grandmother is on her deathbed, she begs Ethan to try writing a screenplay with her. Tells him to go to the library and pick a book for them to work from. Well, as luck has it for Emma (an author), Ethan picks one of her books that was just recently added to that library. Ethan’s grandmother sends him to talk to Emma about writing a screenplay of the book. Ethan is visiting with Emma when JD has an autistic meltdown — and the relationship grows from there. I will just say that you really need to read the book and see what happens!!!!
An amazing story – can’s wait for Michelle’s next book!!!
