Twenty-one-year-old Neka is a bit of an introvert, she also happens to be stunningly beautiful.
When she discovers her friend James is about to be dumped, she sees the perfect opportunity to escape from her quiet life. Can she summon the courage to leave it all behind?
James Copley comes from a ruthless family. It’s rubbed off. Years ago, he disengaged from his brother’s smear campaign, but now his father has offered him an ultimatum, “Get married or lose your seat at the table.” Plotting to stamp his design on the family business, he proposes to a woman, even though he doesn’t love her. But his carefully laid plans start to unravel when she leaves him on the day she’s due to meet his family. Could years of planning his comeback vanish with her departure?
A possible solution comes in an unexpected form: Neka. She’s not only a friend, but the daughter of his benefactor. And she’s right there, offering to support him. But will her support stretch to marriage? He attempts to win her over to his plan but collides with her powerful father who wants to leverage the situation for his own gain.
In their fight for survival and love, they are forced to face some uncomfortable truths.
Can they overcome thwarted dreams and missed chances to find true love, or does forcing destiny’s hand only lead to misery?

Being a bit of an introvert myself, I could totally identify with with Neka.I loved that she saw an opportunity and took it. A lot of introverts wouldn't. It's just the start of change in her life, and I love the idea that sometimes we have to be the change ourselves, have to take that first scary step. As always, what really makes a book for me are the characters, and these are crafted well. I expected to dislike James, but I didn't, and I enjoyed how his personality complimented Neka's and vice versa. The relationship between them progressed well, and I appreciated that it started out as friendship. It was complicated like all good relationships are and deeper, particularly because of their conflicted motivations. A sweet romance you'd feel good sharing with your friends. Overall, a really great read!
