The Book
Release Date: 10 June 2013
Goodreads Link

Reclusive record producer, Alexia Deningham, guards her privacy fiercely. When she agrees to work with superstar Daemon Flagherty, and his band, it is only on the condition that they stay with her at her isolated country estate. 

Fresh from a messy divorce, Daemon is determined to focus on his music. He wants to work with the best and that means Lexi. He certainly isn't looking for romance, but he finds himself intrigued by Lexi's secretive behavior. 

Despite Lexi's reservations, their attraction grows. But someone is watching Lexi. Someone who will stop at nothing to destroy the woman who has ruined his life. When his campaign of terror ratchets out of control, Lexi must fight for survival but who can she really trust?

My Opinion  3.5 STARS
**My thanks to NetGalley and Penguin Books Australia for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

Having read so many books recently based and written in American English, it felt slightly strange to read a book based in England and in British English for a change.

This book has romance, mystery, murder, hope and retribution, along with a host of other bits to keep you interested.

Daemon looks like a hard nut from the outside, but really he is a very loyal softie, especially to those closest to him, although he still has a few issues that get in the way.

Alexia also has her issues, but those are more visible and you have to give her kudos for the way that she has coped with what she has been dealt in life.

As a first novel this is brilliant and is really captivating, I really could not put this book down.
