I loved this short and sweet romantic story. This is Lily's story. The tragedy of the past has been following her every where, there is no escaping the hurt, the betrayal, and the horror of everything that happened. David was gone and she was unable to forgive or forget. Nicholas has his own demons but when he meets beautiful actress Lily he feels hope. Hope that he had lost three years ago. She is perfect and he is falling in love. Although he is too scared to do anything about it at least not without a little encouragement. He feels that she like him too but what if he were wrong? For Lily taking another chance at love is too much. If she let Nicholas into her heart who knows what he will do it. After all David broke it into pieces so it's difficult to try love again.... Soon they both realise that they are connected by more than their mutual attraction to each other. For better or worse their pasts are intertwined with each other. In order to move past the tragedy they share they must re-visit it .... A beautifully written story, I enjoyed reading it a lot. Although I think it might be read as stand alone but knowing the previous history of the characters will make reading experience much better. So I recommend reading first two books before you read this one. But you can give it a try in any case. Petra March has a unique writing style which never disappoints me. :)

For me, this novella was a bit strange. The whole story reminded me of the section on an exam, where you have to read the overly-descriptive narrative paragraph and find the grammatical errors. Now, I'm not saying that the book is full of errors....it's just really REALLY descriptive. The plot wasn't necessarily bad, but I felt as though it got lost among the details.
