Summary

What happens when love and loyalty collide? Two couples must deal with the consequences of their messy love not just for themselves but for those who depend on them. For lovers of passionate romance in the vein of Nicolas Sparks.

When football star Nick Harding hobbles into the Black Salt Cafe the morning after the night before, he is served by Anna, a waitress with haunted-looking eyes and no interest in footballers, famous or otherwise.

Nick is instantly drawn to this exotic, intelligent girl. But a relationship between them risks shame for her conservative refugee family and backlash for Nick that could ruin his career.

Meanwhile, Nick's sister, Lily, is struggling to finish her medical degree. When she meets Toby, it seems that for the first time she is following her heart, not the expectations of others. Yet what starts out as a passionate affair with a man who has just buried his wife slips quickly into dangerous dependency.

Through attraction, breakups, triumphs and tragedies, these two couples learn just how much their beautiful, messy love might cost. A West Side Story for the modern day.

Lovely story, real characters

Beautifully written and performed. The characters will stay with me. A love story, commentary on the merging of cultures, and family saga all rolled into one.

I didn't want it to end!

This book is hands down one of my favourite books I've read in such a long time. From the first few minutes I was instantly captured by the lives of Anna, Nick, Lily and Toby and wished so badly that I was a part of their world so I could continue to experience it even after the book had ended. This beautiful and at times heartbreaking story feels so real and incorporates the perfect amount of real world places and current issues. I'd recommend this book 1000 times over and wish I could listen to it again and again. Incredible. I loved it.
