Eva dodges the fans, media, and gossip that follow her supermodel mom and rock star family members by wearing disguises. After an aimless gap year, she struggles to figure out what she wants from life. She moves in with her famous guitar god brother in Austin while he recovers from a drunken stage stunt accident and tries to stay sober. When a hot Texas cowboy named Alex takes Eva by surprise, she risks her safety and security of anonymity by letting him into her unconventional life.

Alex is captivated by Eva and promises to protect her privacy. Yet he has a secret of his own—the fling he had with an older woman is fraught with scandalous potential for him and now Eva. He broke free of that mistake months ago, or so he thought. As things heat up with Eva, his old flame returns and won’t leave him alone.

Just when Alex thinks he has the reins on the situation, his ex teams up with a gossip reporter hell-bent on invading Eva’s privacy. The resulting exposé, with a sly spin on a recent encounter with his ex, is Alex’s worst nightmare, and Eva’s unsure what to believe. Can she face the world with Alex at her side or will she return into hiding?

Eva comes from a very famous family. She is living with her guitar god brother. He is a lot older than her and currently recovering from an injury that stopped him from playing. She was kidnapped when she was three, so her mother was always overprotective. She grew up always hiding, wearing disguises. 

Living with her brother means that she can have a little bit of independence and venture into the world on her own, as well as take care of her brother and try to keep him from alcohol.

In his latest scheme to get some in the house, she meets Alex. A hot cowboy college student, who runs errands and deliveries as a job. The sparks between them fly between them, but Eva is very reluctant to start something. Raise with a solid sense of avoiding people and a healthy dash of paranoia, she is not keen on trusting anyone. But there is something about Alex, that makes her want to trust him, and she can't keep him from her mind.

It's a very sweet romance story, of two people from very different worlds, falling in love. With a bunch of family drama intertwined in between.

I wasn't the biggest fan of the dialogue in the book, I felt like the voice could have been more distinct. The story felt a bit overly long, especially in the middle part. However I did like the storyline very much and it keep me turning pages, from start to finish to see what will happen next.

happy reading,
