From Wall Street Journal bestselling author L.J. Shen comes an enemies-to-lovers romance about the fine line between seeking revenge and finding love.

When she was young, Arya Roth became best friends with her housekeeper’s son. Soon, friendship turned to young love, and when Arya dared him to kiss her, a chain reaction of disastrous events led to the boy being sent away and out of Arya’s life.

Arya is close to her father as due to a tragedy in her childhood he was the only parent who was there for emotionally so when he finds himself in legal difficulties, she will do whatever she can to assist. This brings Christian Miller into her life who is not only the man determined to bring her father down but also the man she can’t stop thinking about and someone who feels very familiar.

Christian is a man on a mission. He holds Arya and her father responsible for events in the past and is determined to make them pay. He may have expected the attraction he had for Arya but the feelings were something he wasn’t prepared for or wanted.

This is a story about second chances and righting the wrongs of the past. In their own way both Arya and Christian became collateral damage and I enjoyed seeing them emerge stronger and realizing what truly mattered even if there was some turmoil along the way to overcome.
