About the Author:
Angel Devlin likes to write about bad boys and billionaires. She lives in Sheffield in the UK with her partner, son, and furbaby.
To anyone on the outside looking in Phoebe appears to be living the perfect life as she has all the material comforts that anyone could want but that is only part of the picture. All she wants to do is stay under the radar and escape her parents and the life they have planned for her. The last thing she needs to be is to get involved with Liam, the boy her parents have warned her about, especially when her mother is the Principal at their school.
Liam’s life couldn’t be more different as every day is a financial struggle which forces him to do things he wouldn’t have chosen if circumstances were different. When he is given the opportunity to attend an elite school he believes that this will be a stepping stone for the life he wants to have. He has nothing but disdain for the privileged students he must now associate with but there is something about Phoebe that makes it difficult to walk away.
Phoebe and Liam’s characters draw you in as they are so much more than their circumstances. Secrets, suspense and steam escalate into a cliffhanger that leaves us wanting more of these characters and their story.
