That was our agreement.
But Spencer Lancaster was addictive.
And I was high.
High off his taste, starved for his kiss, and desperate for his touch.
So when he asked me to stay, to enjoy his company for more nights than I knew I should, I wasn’t in the right mind to say no.
Everything was perfect. A dream come true.
But half a world away there were secrets.
All of the truths that could tear us apart.
CLANDESTINE IS LIVE AND ONLY 99 pennies FOR A LIMITED TIME!
Reviewed by Emma-Louise on behalf of KFF
A hotel tycoon and a weight wrestling model, both struggling with their own inner demons, and neither is looking for true love.
Olivia Miller a woman with more ghosts then the Mary Celeste, fighting to maintain a modelling career whilst also fighting deep seeded body issues. She has never seen herself as good enough. Never skinny enough. Never pretty enough, never enough.
Spencer Lancaster the devil may care loves ’em and leave ’em playboy CEO. Saddled with the family business because of a family rift his father has with his older brother Grant and miscreant younger brother Pierce. Add the fact that Spencer is living in his father’s shadow he’s attempting to pull out all the stops to expand the business. Only someone is putting a spanner in the works, and that someone in good old Ava Harrison fashion, wasn’t whom I thought it would be. Both running from mistakes and bad judgements, both trying to make a new life for themselves. Until they meet in London and end up spending the night together.
“You have no idea.”
One night is not enough and they start to see more of each other. Only sex isn’t the only thing that is on their mind. They can’t stay away from each other and they can’t stop the feelings that take over.
‘We blend together; we mesh and create something beautiful and different.
We’re in a snow globe that belongs only to us, and I don’t dare shake it.
For once in my life, I want it to stay still and quiet. No flakes. No storm. No nothing.
Just Spencer and me.
Just when happiness meets life.’
No Ava Harrison book is easy; nothing worth having ever comes without a good fight.
“You’re the best person I know, Olivia. You have a chance to escape this life. Don’t look back.”
Olivia is Lynn’s half sister, and of course the gorgeous Carson has to make a debut in this book. Ava Harrison has stated that there will be further novel in this world, told from the point of view of Grant Lancaster, lets hope whomever he ends up leads him a merry chase and makes the dastardly Grant work for his happily ever after. Clandestine deals with some hard subject matters, there may be issue buttons in this book for some people, so please, be aware now.
I loved Clandestine. It was edgy and raw. So many times Olivia made my heart ache and soul cry out. She thinks so little of herself in so many ways. She never gives herself a chance to just be. Running from one thing to another and then running away from that as well. The girl, only 24, is a true testament to the fact that being young doesn’t mean you’re inexperienced. She had so much thrown at her in such a small space of time, and I truly believe that if she had communicated this to those who loved her most some of the wrong decisions/choices she makes would never have been made.
