Publisher’s Description: After losing her mother to cancer, Gabrielle swears off love. Because loving hurts too much when things go wrong. Then, she travels to Africa to meet her father – a man whose existence she was oblivious to. Before long, there is also a baby sister to look after, and intuitively she knows that she needs to protect her. Promptly, there is another tragedy, and more than ever, Gabrielle realises how wise she is to lock away her heart.

But that was before she met Jonathan Knight, a man who amuses and confuses her, and Paul, his best friend, who is just as smart and funny. Through an unfortunate sequence of events, she finds herself in a troublesome situation, but being who she is, she tries to handle it alone, unwittingly sinking into a morass of danger.

A solution comes in the form of Paul, who makes a harebrained suggestion, which Jonathan – for reasons of his own – grabs and presents her with the providential arrangement. Instinctively, she declines the proposal, but Jonathan is persuasive and paints a wonderful picture of security. She accepts out of need, but soon, Jonathan’s ulterior motives unravel, and nothing is as it should be.

But she can’t disclose the truth, for her secret could undo the safe future she is trying to create for her little sister.

Possible spoilers beyond this point.

Likes: I like the crazy mix up that sends Gabrielle and Jonathan into each other’s arms. I also like that Gabrielle is a strong woman—even if she does act a bit naive throughout most of the novel. Gabrielle has a good heart and it shows as the other characters interact with her and try to help her out of the crazy situation she got herself into.

Dislikes: Athina Paris is from South Africa and some of the wording in this novel is just a little odd to my pointed American ears. It doesn’t distract too much from the main idea of the story, but it takes the reader out the story for a moment.

badge4v4I didn’t like that Gabrielle ran away from all her problems. She is very independent and I think a strong woman like that would not feel the need to run away every time the road got bumpy.

Overall I give this book four stars.
