After suffering through heartbreak, Rose is determined to move on without Lee. She can’t cling to her first love forever, and she knows that. As long as he’s happy with his decision, she’ll struggle to move on.
But when Lee's sister Grace invites her to a photoshoot in the French Alps for spring break, Rose quickly realizes it’s a trap – Lee and his new fiance Kiera are there too. Kiera toys mercilessly with Lee and Rose and their feelings for each other.
Even if Rose can muster the courage to be happy for him and Lee can suppress his pent-up desire for her, neither of them can deny there is something more that ties them together than love and lust.
Rose is in love with Leo still, even after the heartbreak she suffered at the end of Arranged. Grace is Leo’s sister and a model that travels the world. But they remain friends through all of the turmoil. I was glad to see this, because to me it felt like their friendship was an important part of the story of Leo and Rose. As Rose doesn't have many friends to begin with, she is socially awkward. Grace is helping Rose come out of her shell. To see Rose getting to visit France was great. I felt like I was there in the Alps with them. I could smell and taste all the goodies at the bakery that they visited. But little did Rose and Grace know that Leo and Kiera were also in France. Poor Rose hadn't seen Leo since that night in the hotel, when Leo tried to convince Rose of his love but she just couldn't risk her heart and trust him. He looks absolutely horrible and far from a man supposedly in love.
When the jealous and viscous Kiera spots Rose and Grace, all hell starts to break lose. Kiera is determined not to lose Leo again, even if it takes calling in favors to criminals to see things work out her way. Throw in snow, drugs, pictures, a cute little girl and old woman, a cabin in the woods, and you have a story that ends in a way you never saw coming.
And I am so glad it ended the way it did too. I couldn't believe everything that went on in these books. You never knew what Kiera or Leo were going to do next. I was constantly wondering how much more Rose and Leo take before they eventually snapped. In the middle of the book I wanted to kill Kiera for the game she was playing, but surprisingly, Leo’s father earned my respect towards the end, turning out to be not that bad of a guy. I hope there is another book after this one. I am just wondering what will happen next in the love story of Leo and Rose; maybe Grace will find love?
