Falling in love is not for me. I don’t do relationships, they never end well.
I don’t believe in fate, soul mates or happy, fairy tale endings. I’m definitely not a sweet little princess in search of her prince.
I have a plan to follow and falling in love is not part of that plan.
Nothing is going to change my mind.
Not even a domineering, gorgeous, blue-eyed firefighter who seems to be everywhere I go.
The moment I saw her, I knew.
I knew the funny, curvy, raven haired beauty was supposed to be mine.
She may not agree with me at the moment, but I’m a patient man.
I’m not afraid to play dirty to get what I want.
And I want Maliya Abbott.
When her sister decides to move from London, across the Atlantic Ocean to Starling Falls to run an estranged relative’s bakery, Maliya Abbott is pretty sure her sister has lost her ever-loving mind.
Not wanting to be separated from the only family she has left, Maliya goes with her, a move that was only supposed to last a year. After all, training to be a doctor at the same University her parents did had always been her goal.
What she hadn’t planned on, was meeting Caleb Jameson. A man who is adamant they are destined to be together. That would be great, if she actually believed in any of that crap.
She also hadn’t planned on his insane, lovable, meddling family trying to derail her plans.
Maliya is a smart girl. She knows what she wants and what she doesn’t want. She definitely wants to go to Oxford University and train to become a doctor. She definitely does NOT want anything to do with Caleb Jameson.
Now, if only she could get her stupid heart to listen to her head.
I was contacted by the author and asked if I could review her debut book. I'm so glad I responded to her email and gave her a shot. This debut book is insanely good!
Maliya Abbott's priority is her sister. So when her crazy little sister decides to pack her bags and move to Starling Falls, Maliya follows along, putting her dream of becoming a doctor on hold.
Caleb has called Starling Falls home for years now. He loves what he has there. The missing piece he never believed he would find comes in the form of an angel. Not a real one. It's just Maliya, but for a few seconds he believes it's a real angel.
Maliya and Caleb are somewhat opposites. Maliya has her life very planned out, very structured. While Caleb, lives life on the edge. Maliya doesn't believe she can love again and Caleb is an insta-love type of guy. However, one thing they do have in common is their importance of family. They both cherish their family.
Maliya was frustrating character! I ended up loving her, but she made me angry sometimes! Maliya lives her life with an irrational fear that dictates everything! It was so frustrating to read about her not opening up to Caleb because of this fear. Despite this, I loved her because Maliya kept it so real.
Caleb is one big sweetheart! He lives his life so passionately, which makes him so irresistible. Caleb has a rough past, but he's learned to accept it and move on. Now, he has a close-knit family he adores and wouldn't trade it for the world.
I'm really excited about Aidan Willow's upcoming books. If this book is any indication of how good her books will be, I believe she'll have a very successful future as an author! I can't wait for this series to be continued. 4 stars!
Aidan Willows lives in London, England. She graduated from the University of London with a degree in Psychology.
After spending an absurd amount of time in the company of her e-reader, she finally decided to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and finally let loose all those imaginary friends she has floating around in her head.
She is an avid reader, daydreamer, tea fanatic, amateur baker (though her and bread have a tempestuous relationship), appreciator of all things whiskey related and she generally watches far too much television.
