Here's the thing about keeping secrets...

After learning Jessica's been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, her fiancé bolted out of her life as if he was on fire. She finds solace in her career--no distractions or romantic entanglements there!

But the universe has its own agenda.

Three thousand miles away from home and in the most unlikely of circumstances, Jessica meets Silicon Valley rising star James Callahan and her world is instantly turned upside down. Things go further awry when she encounters a ghost from the past and her California dreams slowly morph into a nightmare. That one night of reckless abandon is back to haunt her and the control she fought so hard to regain is now in the hands of another.

Plagued by betrayal and guilt over his dad’s untimely death, James left Cambridge in search of a new beginning in San Francisco. With laser-focus, he built a cutting edge technology company now on the brink of financial success. Romance is the last thing on his mind…until he meets Jessica.

Fate brought them together, awakening their dormant emotions. But Jessica’s scandalous secret consumes her and threatens the very happiness she feared she’d never find with another man. Can James handle the truth about her past? Or did she pick the wrong guy yet again?

5 Stars by Amazeballs Book Addicts -  ​First let me start off by saying kudos to Ms. Luciani for writing about someone with Multiple Sclerosis so perfectly! I have never read a book where one of the main characters has it and coming from someone that does have MS, I can honestly say that you wrote the character's fears and all the other feelings that come along with it absolutely brilliantly. So, Jessica has just been diagnosed and had her whole life turned upside down and decides to focus on just work with no romantic entanglements for fear that "he" won't be able to accept her with her disease. Then as fate would have it, Jessica runs into James a few times and sparks fly immediately. I am seriously in love with James. He is the ideal man for any woman I think. Every single thing he does and how he goes about his relationship with Jessica is nothing short of awesome. Jessica has some challenges as any person does, but especially someone with MS. I love that Jessica is written to be an extremely strong woman with a life changing disease but doesn't let that stop her from getting what she wants. Mad skills Ms. Luciani!! Absolutely brilliant!! I recommend this book to everyone! This one is fantastic! A very easy rating of 5 AMAZEBALLS stars for me. A copy was gifted in exchange for an honest review.
