At sixteen, Dee Johnson gambled her heart on her best friend Jed Brown – and lost when he disappeared without a trace.
Ten years on, Dee’s life is uprooted when Jed turns up on her doorstep, asking for her help.
Dee has been left behind by everyone she’s loved: her parents, her close friend Alexia, and a stream of lovers. She moves fast with men and suspects this is why they move on fast. Now that’s Jed’s back in her life, she’s taking no chances. Despite the attraction ripping at her seams, she holds back, knowing she wouldn't recover from being loved and left by him a second time.
A constant traveler, Jed has only felt at home once in his life – with Dee. Now that he’s found her again, he's determined to make up for lost time. He'll never leave her again.
Until an unexpectedly royal revelation threatens to strip Jed of his freedom and future – including his place by Dee’s side.
Emotional and fast pace moving story of a second chance at love.
The teenage love Jed and Dee shared for each other never had a chance, leaving them for pining for each other as life moved on, even though never completely fulfilling for them. The emotional tension and anxiety when they meet again is high, and those emotions keep running up and down, as Jed and Dee struggles to set their priorities, to find their place in life, and love.
The surprising revelations, from their past and the possible future, keep the story moving. The characters are easy to like and relate to. The modern day fairytale is touching and heartfelt, I was teary eyed at times, smiling at the end, a lovely, tender novella
