Burgeoning photographer Olivia Bell is a normal twenty-four-year-old, working diligently to hone her craft with the help of her idol and mentor, Everett Shaw. But she quickly falls for the much older, irresistible Lothario, and the two embark on a passionate, forbidden romance.
When their relationship is revealed, the fallout has dire consequences. Everett isn’t just Liv’s mentor—he’s also a well-traveled, nefarious lady’s man responsible for countless broken hearts across the globe. Not to mention, her sister despises Everett to the deepest recesses of her soul. The odds are stacked against the star-crossed lovers, but they can’t deny what their hearts want.
Determined to be together, they forge full steam ahead despite all that stands in their way. But what happens when Liv and Everett realize they are in different places in their lives… with conflicting hopes and dreams? Liv has to decide if she’s willing to fight to hold on to the love of her life, even if it means altering the plans she has for her future.
But what will she do when the skeletons in Everett’s closet are brought out into the light?
