Katherine ‘Kitty’ Peters always follows what Daddy says. The one time she rebels against wealthy father, he issue an ultimatum: one month to be an agreeable daughter and marry the man of his choice, or find a way to support herself on her own. Knowing the length of her leash, she escapes her suffocating world for a more colourful one with the tattooed maverick painter with the sexy smirk.  

Amidst the passionate flare, family crises may soon douse the flame. 

While Adam needs help, the only person who can help is her father and his connections. Only condition is, Kitty has to sacrifice her happiness. 

Can she walk away from the man she loves in order to save him from pain?


It’s a typical melodramatic romantic book. Nothing overtly exciting about the plot. The drama element has been well played out whereas the romantic elements seems to be strained. Though the characters have been formed with a good conceptual backbone, I was. Ot able to like or relate to anyone of them. The first person tone of narration also subdued the whole spark of romance for me. 

The cover image looks more like an advertisement of something sleazier and is completely unrelated to the romance that is actually depicted between the lead characters. 

My opinion: For a casual read, it’s okay. Otherwise there is nothing remarkable about the book. 

My rating: 2 out of 5
