Gemma Fox is a self-confessed unlucky-in-love geek treating herself to a weekend at a pop-culture convention on Australia’s sunny Gold Coast.
Drawn there by the temptation of seeing her celebrity crush, Everett Rhodes, the last thing she expects is to wind up trapped in an elevator with him. Parting ways, Gemma has no reason to suspect that their paths will cross again. After all, he’s a celebrity. She’s just a fan who lives on the other side of the planet.
Besides, her life is not a rom-com. (At least, that’s what she keeps telling herself.)
However, life has other plans. And Everett -stupidly charming, frustratingly handsome Everett- is hard to resist.
But when things get complicated, Gemma and Everett are both faced with the same dilemma:
How can they make things work when they live in completely separate worlds?
This book is the story of Liz, a driven independent woman, facing the challenges of what has shaped her life in her growing years, her journey towards accepting the past, the mistakes and achievements of her family as well as accepting the mistakes people she cared for her made. Moving on and recognising that what she was and made her were effectively those challenges. She was stronger and better because of these events.
By accepting that her journey, by fate or individual design, had created an alluring, successful but at the same time insecure individual who craved the company of her mother, who missed her brother as they were both forced to grow quickly in order to maintain the family unit.
By understanding her past and acknowledging the gift of the future, Liz was able to clearly see the value of real honest friendship and the meaning of rewarding those who cared and moving on from those who did not.
Lainey Miles wants nothing more than to marry her fiancé Jace Cannon. She’s been putting off setting a date because she doesn’t want the big white wedding her mother’s counting on. Jace isn’t hiding the fact he’s getting antsy either. She knows something has to be done and fast. So she recruits her friends to plan a surprise wedding that Jace will never forget.
Jace doesn’t understand why Lainey won’t even talk about setting a date for their wedding. If she changed her mind, he wished she’d just say so, but with the way they were burning up the sheets he didn’t think that was the problem. He was determined that as soon as he got back from his business trip they were going to sit down and work things out. One way or another he is going to get an answer out of her.
Taking chances isn’t a new concept to me, but I’ve never been one to take a chance on love. Michael changes all of that. No more party girl, no more one-night stands. I fall hard for the cerulean-eyed sex god who shows me what it’s like to truly be cherished and loved.
Only, I’m not sure how long it can last.
