From the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of Where Sea Meets Sky comes a new adult novel about a young woman who becomes a nanny in Capri and falls for her charges’ bad-boy brother.
When I’m traveling, I feel like the secret to my life, to myself, to really becoming, is one step ahead. It’s in the next destination, the next town I get lost in, the next stranger I talk to. It’s always next but never here . . .
After six months of backpacking and soul-searching across the world, Amber MacLean is flat broke. There are worse places for a twentysomething to be stuck than the Amalfi Coast, but the only way she can earn enough money for a plane ticket home to California is to teach English to two of the brattiest children she has ever met.
It doesn’t help that the children are under the care of their brooding older brother, ex-motorcycle racer Desiderio Larosa. Darkly handsome and oh-so-mysterious, the young master of the crumbling villa tests Amber’s patience and will at every turn—not to mention her hormones.
When her position turns into a full-time nanny gig, Amber grows dangerously closer to the enigmatic recluse. But can she give up the certainty of home for someone whose closely guarded heart feels a world apart from her own?
** My 4 Star Review **
I had already met Amber in Where Sea Meets Sky. This one took me on her journey after she parted ways with Josh and Gemma. Broke. In foreign lands. Trying to find herself. This obviously equals a story of twists and turns.
This journey is one full of hope and some despair. Both Amber and Derio are both on a journey of self-discovery. Both are running from who they were and crashing into who they will become. It's not a journey full of rainbows and laughs. Life has not been pleasant, and their journey takes them down paths that could possibly destroy them or bring them together.
This story is full of ups and downs. It's very romantic, yet very sad at the same time. Karina's writing has a way of hitting you right in the heart with her well-spun words. Like her other works, this story defintiely will not disappoint.
