Eva Mercy is a single mother and a best-selling paranormal romance author with a serious case of writer’s block. Shane Hall is an acclaimed novelist recovering from addiction, and he happens to be the boy who turned Eva’s world upside down in high school. After Eva and Shane cross paths for the first time in years at a literary event, they can’t seem to keep away from each other. Can the older, wiser Eva and Shane work through their fiery chemistry and the ghosts of their pasts?
VERDICT With funny, snappy writing and a strong eye for detail, Williams (The Perfect Find) builds a compelling, glamorous Black literary world for the protagonists to inhabit. The book balances a second-chance romance with themes of motherhood, childhood trauma, and life with chronic pain.
