Florence Randall wants nothing more than to write. Not for the women’s magazine that she currently works for but for herself, as a children’s book author. It has been all she has ever dreamed of. Books were once her salvation from a very dismal reality but now they are a source of anxiety and stress. It all seems relatively easy. Except it isn’t. Not for her. Tragedy forced Flor to skip her entire childhood and it has proven to be one hell of a writer’s block.
With her job at the magazine hanging in the balance, her noisy neighbor disrupting creativity, and a new love interest giving her whiplash, it doesn’t look like Flor’s books will ever be finished.
Flor strikes a deal with her irritating neighbor. He will help her do what it takes to finish her books and she will help him recover from surgery. Simple enough. Or is it?
Falling in love with the “boy next door” was never part of the deal, and neither was unearthing the past.
As it turns out, things are never just as they appear. Reliving a childhood that was painful the first time around comes at a cost and falling for a man who is doomed to shatter her heart is the worst possible thing she could do but she doesn’t have a choice because everything about his troubled soul beckons to her. Is a broken heart worth following her dreams?
