Summary: In order to protect his secret, Oliver has been living a lie. As far as the world knows, he is happily engaged and set to marry Tess. When Oliver meets Chloe and feels an instant connection to her, he questions his decision to put the greater good before his own happiness. But it may already be too late to stop what’s been set in motion leading Chloe to decide just how much she’s willing to sacrifice to be with Oliver.
Warning: There is a lot of angst in this story. All the characters make some bad choices and there’s a lot of pain and tears. There are also not one, but two sequels, so it is going to be a long journey to reach a happy ending.
