Power. Money. Control. Love.
He has all but one.
When movie star, Evan Carlson, discovers his girlfriend’s picture with another man splashed on the cover of gossip magazines, he decides he’s had enough of his fishbowl life and attempts to outrun the media frenzy his relationships have become. Driving until the road stops, he ends up on the remote and quaint Perry Island, where a heartthrob can blend in like the locals and be a beach bum as long as he wants. All that changes when Evan meets Haven Owen, aspiring songwriter and the girl he just can’t get enough of. A summer romance turns into something much deeper and Evan gets tangled in his own web of lies to keep Haven in his life. But when his ex tracks him down, Evan learns there are some things you just can’t outrun.
Is the cost of love, losing all control?
This book sucked me in from the very start. Evan is on the run from the media and paparazzi after pictures of his girlfriend with another man are published. He decides to run away from everything, landing at Perry Island and ends up creating a false identity. When he meets Haven, he knows that there is something different about her. She is not like the usual women that he meets. Haven has wishes and desires. Evan/ Jay begins to get more and more drawn to her all the while keeping his true identity a secret. But then the past comes calling and the truth is revealed. I love a book that makes me fall in love with the characters while still being able to give me a good case of angst. This book was so well written and the timing of the plot is impeccable. Trust me, you will be flipping pages as fast as you can. Evan and Haven are absolutely adorable and sexy together. They have a realistic chemistry and their scenes together are magical. I fell hard for Evan. (it doesn’t hurt that he is one sexy movie star. ) He was torn emotionally. He wants to help Haven have her dreams realized but at the same time is terrified that his true identity will be revealed. Talk about some gut wrenching scenes. My favorite part of the book lies with Evan and Haven and how they change each other. By the end of the book they grow into the person that each wanted to be. If this book is any indication of TA Foster’s writing, then she has a new fan. I want more. More from this author and more from Evan and Haven.
4.5 out of 5 stars
