It was supposed to be just another day at work for a local newspaper reporter, Stella Holt. She had always loved her job, and believed she was good at it. Until one day when she was sent to interview the author of a worldwide bestseller who had made so many women fall in love with him.
James Collins is not just a word-painter. His every work is a masterpiece, a perfect blend of mystery and mind-blowing romance. Only in his own life, there is no place for romance. He knows everything about women, starting from what they like most, and to the ways to seduce them with only a glance. But there’s a secret that has been aggrieving him for years, a secret that has locked his heart forever…
“I thought I would never fall in love with you, Stella. And I didn’t… I drowned in you…”

I think I starred at my laptop for over an hour because I don’t know if I have the necessary words to describe just how good this book was. Finally, I’ve read a book where two main characters are very well created, where a woman can decide for her own what to do. To tell you the truth, I was sick of reading books where ladies act all innocent. I absolutely loved Stella. I adored her snarky comments, her attitude, and her courage when it came to the truth.
Stella Holt has run away from New York because the guy who she loved, decided to break her heart. So she decided to me to Braidwood, get a job at her uncles company as a journalist, and try to heal her wounds. It’s not easy letting go of the memories and of the past. But, Stella is an extraordinary journalist, her uncle loves her writing style and he is sure they can make the magazine the next big think. He lets her know, that during the weekend she has to take an interview to none other than James Collins. He is a successful writer, all women’s loves him and especially his steamy stories. Stella isn’t such a big fan, and when she finds out that he will be staying with them, because the only hotel in the city it’s close, she is less than thrilled.
James Collins is at first sight an arrogant man, with a lot of tricks up his sleeves, a coffee addict and a guy who stays away from love. He accepts Stella’s interview, but announces her that she has the liberty to ask him only 5 questions. But, even if he tries to stay away from her, to push aside what he’s starting to feel, he isn’t sure he can stop from falling in love.
The discussions between these two, the fights, the hurt, and the heeling makes this entire story just perfect. I’ve laughed my heart out at Stella’s attitude towards James sometimes, and I’ve cried with them both. To be able to heal from wounds like theirs, and to find hope in another love, in another person, is something just breathe taking. Actually, the entire story is breathe taking, is simply perfect. It shows you that fighting, and keeping your head up, trusting love is the only way to go. I just adored the book! Diana Nixon, please continue writing such amazing stories, you are one of a kind writer.
