Publisher's Summary

Every little girl dreams of the fairy tale. The one where the white knight rushes in to save her from the clutches of evil. They fall in love, have babies, and live happily ever after.

By that definition, my life should have been a fairy tale, too.

When I was eight years old, Caven Hunt saved me from the worst kind of evil to walk the Earth. It didn’t matter that I was a kid. I fell in love with him all the same.

But that was where my fairy tale ended.

Years later, a one-night stand during the darkest time imaginable gave us a little girl. It was nothing compared to the pitch black that consumed me when I was forced to leave her with Caven for good.

At the end of every fairy tale, the happily ever after is the one thing that remains consistent. It wasn’t going to be mine, but there hadn’t been a night that passed where I hadn’t prayed that it would be hers.

I owed Caven my life.

However, I owed that innocent child more.

And that included ripping the heart from my chest and facing her father again.

Incredible Story with Jaw Drop Cliffhanger

Wow I can’t love Caven anymore than I do. From the beginning this book is amazing and emotional, gut wrenching yet filled with hope and second chances. Rosie definitely steals the scenes she’s in. Hadley seems so stricken by the past but obviously loves Rosie so much! I can’t wait to see how this comes together! The narration is incredible!!!

ALL SMILES & ABSOLUTELY NO REGRETS HERE

As with all of your past books Aly, you grabbed me right from the start.. with an emotional tug so strong I had absolutely no hope of pausing or stopping this heartbreaking yet heartwarming first look into Caven, little Rosie and Hadley’s bitter-sweet touching story. Told in the present as tentative courageous steps of reconciliation, forgiveness, trust and second chances blossomed.. but also with flashbacks of a shared horrific event that left mental and physical scars on them both. Which made this such a unique unstoppable journey of hope.. but, as the first light of dawn started to seep through my bedroom window, as I’d just begun to ease my troubled heart, as the hours had bled out into mere minutes.. it was then that you threw in a bloodied wrench that twisted all I’d come to believe in. You wickedly wonderful woman - I have nothing but the highest praise for your talents.. however, if I’d had to wait for an hour, a day, a week or even longer for the second book in this breathtaking duet, sorry but I’d also be colorfully cursing you too.

And the impressive narration by Andi and Christian made the characters come alive, made the tension, the heartbreak, the first sights, the first touches and all the first ooze with such strong emotional feels.. solidifying the fact that they were the perfect choice to breathe life into this epic dual POV story.

Worth a credit? I’d originally been a bit miffed because the endless trend nowadays to split a story into Duets or Trilogies for the sound of more ‘ka-ching ka-ching’ is so bloody annoying.. but, if 2 credits gets me one of YOUR riveting touching rollercoaster Duets, then no regrets here - I’ll gladly pay the price to get lost in the emotional whirlwind of your words.

Holy Plot Twists, Batman!

This book is amazing! It is so full of agonizing tragedy, emotional recovery, personal struggles, adorable daddy-daughter moments, some of the MOST DELICIOUS DIRTY TALK EVER - and Holy Plot Twists, Batman! You never see them coming. I just finished book 1 and I'm going in to book 2 now and HOLY COW! These characters are deeply complex - You will not see it coming!

You cannot go wrong with Andi Arndt and Christian Fox. Wow! They are just freaking fantastic in this one.

Multiple extra extra earbuds charged and ready✅

Kleenex (anticipating happy crying) ✅

Extra knickers for the inevitable ✅

Fantastic!

You know how some book just grab you from the get go, this is just that kind of book. From the prologue, you can tell it will be an amzing rid, it is roller coaster out of control, , the angst, the giggles, the swooning, and all the expectations of what might come next. This book was really good! Caven and Hadley, and Willow, and Rosalee. I really was not expecting to be that good so I immediately jumped to read the next book. I hope it will be as good as this one.

Oh my goodness, drew me in from Page 1

This definitely drew you in from page one. The tragic event of their past and the revelation at the end, wow (gasp)...thank goodness I didn't have to wait for book 2. Lost a bunch of sleep on this one because I couldn't turn it off.
