Book Summary

What is the price of sacrifice, when love is the prize?

Alexa is a gifted architect. She grew up watching her mother pay a heavy price for love, at the loss of her freedom, her creativity and her identity– a price Alexa swore she would never pay. She spent her youth helping her working mom take care of their home, her sick father and her six younger siblings. Now nothing will stand in the way of her success.

Bruce has success in spades. He lives a life of leisure after selling his software company for millions. But money can't buy the thing he desires most, and was deprived of as a child when his mother left him and his three older brothers in the care of his bullying dad- the love and nurturing of a woman, a comfortable home and a family of his own.

When a crisis obliges them to play house together, can a few weeks in each other’s company disrupt their carefully constructed worlds?


"I loved this book!! Having read the first book in the series I was familiar with the two main characters going into this book. I thought Alexa was a great character in the first book and it was awesome to have a whole book dedicated to her story. My absolute favorite part was definitely the ending of the story." JillPill

"These two people are brought together and it is like lightening striking when they meet as the chemistry between them is powerful. Will Alexa change her mind about love? To find out you are going to need to purchase a copy of this beautifully written book by M.A. Clarke Scott. This is the second book in the series but as this is the first book that I have read by her, I can honestly tell you that it can easily be read as a standalone story.
