She has a future she can’t escape. He refuses to let her face it alone.

Twenty-one. The age when adult life begins. In my case, it’s the age I learned my future sucked, big time, and there was nothing I could do about it. Every minute of every day I face the fact my life is only going to get worse. Why? Because I have early-onset Parkinson’s Disease. I’m not going to let it get me down, but I also can’t let anyone close. That’s not fair to them, or to me. Trust me. So that means my heart and my soul, is off-limits.

But then I traveled to Australia on a college scholarship program and life royally screwed me over. Again.

Raphael Jones is an arrogant Australian celebrity, the hottest guy on campus and a pain in my ass. Worst of all, he makes me ache for a life I’ll never be able to have. Especially when he takes me in his arms and does wicked things to my body.

How do I have a hope of surviving ten weeks in Australia when it’s not just the paparazzi who have me in their sights, but Raph as well? Because Raphael Jones is a man who always gets what he wants. And no matter what I say or do, he refuses to accept what I so painfully know: a life and future with me is no life at all.

The best New Adult book I have read!


Maci was as real as they come!  I totally fell in love with her!  A young woman dealing with the life of becoming an adult and a disease that makes life hard to live. Wants and dreams are not seen the same way to Maci as others do.  Love is also something Maci see different. No attachments, as she feels all she will cause is hurt. Traveling halfway around the country opens her eyes to more than just the world.

Ralph surprised me from the get go. He’s a super hot, simple man who became a celebrity by circumstance.  A bit argonaut, fun and  carefree in his own way. Running into someone who knows nothing about changes his world with one kiss.  Ralph is genuine in all aspects of the word. The thoughtfulness and caring this man contains the things that dreams are made of.

A complex yet passionate book that will make you laugh and cry all in one. Truly giving the reader a peek at what Unconditional love really is. Dealing with real life through laughter, struggle, pain, tears and passion. Ms. Hudson nails this book on every level. Well developed and engaging characters with personalities and charisma that make you want to read them. Great plot and storyline will keep the pages turning. While the chemistry and passion will make you fall in love.  A great read!
