No one lays open the heart and soul quite like New York Timesbestselling author Mia Sheridan.

The moment she met Callen Hayes, eleven-year-old Jessica Creswell knew he was a broken prince. Her prince. They became each other's refuge, a safe and magical place far from their troubled lives. Until the day Callen kissed her--Jessica's first real, dreamy kiss—and then disappeared from her life without a word.

Years later, everyone knows who Callen Hayes is. Famous composer. Infamous bad boy. What no one knows is that Callen's music is now locked deep inside, trapped behind his own inner demons. It's only when he withdraws to France to drink his way through the darkness that Callen stumbles into the one person who makes the music return. Jessica. His Jessie. And she still tastes of fresh, sweet innocence . . . even as she sets his blood on fire.

But they don't belong in each other's worlds anymore. There are too many mistakes. Too many secrets. Too many lies. All they have is that instinctive longing, that need—and something that looks dangerously like love.

Jenny’s Review

This book captured my attention and wouldn’t let it go. I got absorbed in Callen & Jessie’s world and I loved it. However, I will be honest I did start skimming the history writings after halfway about the ancient writings Jessie was working on. I was too enraptured in finding out how Callen & Jessie’s story played out.

Callen is a troubled, lost soul that drowns his pain and numbs his mind in alcohol and women to forget his abusive upbringing. His one happy memory is his light shining of Jessica Creswell, his Jessie. He is taken away from her when his dad relocates them to another city. He loses himself in the love of music. He writes and composes movie themes and has captured the stardom and becomes an instant celebrity. So on a rooftop in Paris, 10 years after losing touch from her prince, does Jessie actually recognize the man that walked away without a word?

Jessie Creswell, she’s simply amazing. Smart, beautiful, gentle, and so very kind. She has had an upbringing that no kid wants to remember. Her trust in men is shattered after watching her dad repeatedly cheat on her mom. So after losing the boy she loved as a teen, she followed his stardom in the tabloids as she watched him work his way through many women. So how does she treat an unexpected reunion? Does she forget what he is or will Callen not even remember her?

I was so invested in seeing the good in these characters. I wanted them to have their happily ever afters. I wanted them to overcome their pasts and have only bright and happy futures. This book teetered on heartbreak at around 80% for me. My heart dropped, it cried, and it was ugly mad. YET this fantastic author, she knows how to write a good book, oh yes she does❤

Without giving anymore away, I hands down recommend this read. Bear with the ancient history parts, they do have meaning☺ so pick this one up!!! Releasing June 12th!!
