Publisher's Summary

Everyone knew Alicia Harrison's marriage to Ilya Stern wouldn't last. They'd grown up on a remote stretch of Quarry Street, where there were two houses, two sets of siblings, and eventually, a tangled mess of betrayal, longing, and loss. Tragedy catapulted Allie and Ilya together, but divorce - even as neighbors - has been relatively uncomplicated.
Then Ilya's brother, Nikolai, comes home for their grandmother's last days. He's the guy who teased and fought with Allie, infuriated her, then fled town without a good-bye. Now Niko makes her feel something else entirely - a rush of connection and pure desire that she's been trying to quench since one secret kiss years ago. Niko's not sticking around. She's not going to leave. And after all that's happened between their families, this can't be anything more than brief pleasure and a bad idea.
But the lies we tell ourselves can't compete with the truths our hearts refuse to let go...

I've heard a lot about Megan Hart, but never read her books and I believe this is a departure from her normal style. I would class this as a family saga/women's fiction with a medium pace. The story rotates around Alicia from late adolescence to present day in her 30s and her relationship with two brothers. I wouldn't technically say this is love triangle territory but there is an element of forbidden love.

Whilst this isn't first and foremost a romance novel, that theme remains strong alongside a backdrop of intrigue, family feuds and love, death and complex connections. I found myself invested and mostly captured by the story and one of it's strongest points was that there was little ability to predict events. I'm definitely looking forward to catching the next instalment of these characters in book two.

The narration was great and I knew it would be because I've listened to Kate Rudd before. She excels at small nuances between character voices and she is able to convey male dialogue well.
