Elliot Halloran is running away. Away from her privileged Manhattan upbringing and a promising future at business school. Away from her family, which plummeted from A-list to disgraced after her criminal father’s atrocities were exposed. Despite the guilt Elliot feels for abandoning her family, she has no choice. She is too recognizable to live life as the person she has always been. So when an old family friend offers her a position as an economics instructor at Miami’s elite Allford Academy, Elliot jumps at the chance to distance herself from her past. She cuts her hair, changes her name, and vows never to speak of her old life again.
Keeping her identity hidden is harder than Elliot expected, especially with a roommate who seems to be on the verge of uncovering her true identity. As she fumbles through the opening chapters of her new life, Elliot encounters an entirely unforeseen obstacle: photography instructor Luke Poulos. Luke is sensitive and spontaneous. An art lover. Smart. Everything Elliot has ever wanted. Luke and Elliot’s connection deepens when she learns that he lost his parents in a car accident when he was a teenager. Like Elliot, Luke understands that life can shatter in an instant.
Elliot knows that a relationship with Luke is impossible; that he would never love her if he knew the details of her past. But as she struggles with whether to open herself to love or keep her true self locked away, Elliot learns that she’s not the only one with dark secrets.
Elle is a girl who running from her past, running from a choice she made that ruined her family. Elle is trying to start over and live her life but no matter where she goes and what she does, it’s hard to out run her memories. Elle is struggling with herself about the choice she made, not really sure if she can forgive herself. Now she’s starting her life over, teaching at a fancy private school, where she meets the oh so amazing Luke, a fellow teacher.
Both are great characters and have amazing chemistry, they’re relatable and you easily find yourself rooting for them. This was a nice read. Easy, fun, cute, and quick. It was well written and wasn’t too much. Though I really found myself wanting to know more about really what went down with Elle’s family, more about the scandal, I should say. Aside from that I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone. So go out and get this book.
