Description

When Solene Marchand, the thirty-nine-year-old owner of a prestigious art gallery in Los Angeles, takes her daughter, Isabelle, to meet her favourite boy band, she doesP so reluctantly and at her ex-husband's request. The last thing she expects is to make a connection with one of the members of the world-famous August Moon. But Hayes Campbell is clever, winning, confident, and posh, and the attraction is immediate. That he is all of twenty years old further complicates things. What begins as a series of clandestine trysts quickly evolves into a passionate relationship. It is a journey that spans continents as Solene and Hayes navigate each other's disparate worlds: from stadium tours to international art fairs to secluded hideaways in Paris and Miami. And for Solene, it is as much a reclaiming of self, as it is a rediscovery of happiness and love. When their romance becomes a viral sensation, and both she and her daughter become the target of rabid fans and an insatiable media, Solene must face how her new status has impacted not only her life, but the lives of those closest to her.show more

Review quote

"Actress Lee, who appeared in Fifty Shades Darker, debuts with a beautifully written novel that explores sex, love, romance, and fantasy in moving, insightful ways while also examining a woman's struggle with aging and sexism, with a nod at the tension between celebrity and privacy. A fascinating, thought-provoking, genre-bending romantic read." - Kirkus Reviews "This sexy and bittersweet debut by actress-turned-author Lee zeros in on Solene's struggle as she is torn between her desire for Hayes and her need to live a normal life." - Booklist "An OMG page-turner that literally sucks you in from page one to the last few words. I found myself yearning for more, needing, really, to know what happens next...it's that good." - Gabrielle Union "Captures what fame looks like, and how it affects us all...a fun, juicy love story!" - Elizabeth Banks "An honest and elegant book about modern love in the age of uber-celebrity and social media." - Hill Harpershow more
