Unfortunately her dream of an easy reunion proves difficult after a violent storm sends a mysterious yacht crashing into the Magnussons’ docks. What’s worse, the boat disappeared a year ago, and the survivors are acting strangely… Bo has worked with the Magnusson family for years, doing whatever is needed, including keeping his boss’s younger sister out of trouble—and his hands to himself. Of course, that isn’t so easy after Astrid has a haunting vision about the yacht’s disappearance, plunging them into an underground world of old money and dark magic. Danger will drive them closer together, but surviving their own forbidden feelings could be the bigger risk.

Faced with doubts (what if he’s a creep—or worse?), Bailey doesn’t tell Alex she’s moved to his hometown. Or that she’s landed a job at the local tourist trap, the oddball Cavern Palace Museum. Or that she’s being tormented daily by Porter Roth, a smart-alecky yet irritatingly hot museum security guard. But when Porter and Bailey are locked in the museum overnight, Bailey is forced to choose whether she should cling to a dreamy fantasy in Alex or take a risk on an imperfect reality with Porter.

Jenn Bennett - Alex, ​nagyjából...
"De ​egyetlen embert tudok csak kivenni, ahogy ott áll a jegyárusító fülkével szemben. Porter Roth. Gyönyörű alak. A fején temérdek vadul göndörödő hajfürt. Pimasz mosoly. Ősi ellenségem." Bailey "Mink" Rydell megtalálta élete pasiját. Mindketten imádják a filmeket és minden egyes nap beszélnek - Alex tökéletes. Eltekintve attól az aprócska ténytől, hogy még soha az életben nem találkoztak és egymás valódi nevét sem ismerik. Amikor Bailey ugyanabba a városba költözik, ahol Alex él, a lány úgy dönt, megkeresi. Ám megtalálni valakit a chatelésekre alapozva nehezebb, mint ahogy Bailey elsőre gondolta, főleg úgy, hogy idegesítően magabiztos (és szemtelenül jóképű) munkatársa, Porter Roth minden egyes lépésén jól szórakozik. Vajon nem őrültség ez az egész, és nem lesz csalódás, ha mégis sikerül Alexre rábukkannia? Bennett könyve rendkívül finoman árnyalt szerelmes regény, amely egyaránt beszél a felnőtté válás nehézségeiről, és a fiatalság minden problémán felülkerekedő életerejéről. Vigyázat, nem csak lányoknak!
