Thirty nights. Two hearts. One fate.
American Beauty, Book 1
After her parents’ tragic deaths, Elisa Snow wanted nothing more than to escape her past. Eighteen and alone, she fled her quaint English village and moved to the United States. A starving science student by day and an artist’s muse by night, Elisa has slowly built a new life. She never dreamed she would lose everything again.
She’s one week from graduation when her visa is unexpectedly denied. Given thirty days to leave the country, she must face the one thing she cannot survive again—saying goodbye and leaving her home. Yet within minutes of her world shattering, she meets a man with the power to piece it back together.
After finishing his tour of duty in Iraq, Aiden Hale traded battlefields for boardrooms, becoming one of the most successful venture capitalists in the nation. But all his wealth can’t buy him reprieve from the horrific memories of war. The only thing that gives him peace is a painting of Elisa.
Drawn together by their invisible wounds, they begin a passionate affair as they race against the clock to defy their pasts—and fight for their future.
Oh my oh my oh my!!!!!!
This book is just what I need for my Gideon Cross withdrawal. This book is beautifully written that no matter how it may seem, it is not tacky. No no no.
This book will make you feel things that you can’t help but welcome it, no matter how gut-wrenching it may be.
At the very start, you know what will happen at the end, but you just feel compelled to finish this book to the very end because you’ve been captivated by the plot and the characters.
The complex decisions of Aiden to let Elisa go just not to hurt her versus the selfish desire of keeping her because he’ s not strong to let her go will make you lose our breath every time you turn a page.
