From the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of Where Sea Meets Sky comes a new adult novel about a young woman who becomes a nanny in Capri and falls for her charges’ bad-boy brother.
When I’m traveling, I feel like the secret to my life, to myself, to really becoming, is one step ahead. It’s in the next destination, the next town I get lost in, the next stranger I talk to. It’s always next but never here . . .
After six months of backpacking and soul-searching across the world, Amber MacLean is flat broke.

Amber, on a trip to discover the world, is pack backing through Europe. She is over spent and in a bit of a bind. Somehow she has finagles a job as English teacher for a set of twins. The current nanny seems to be a strong no-nonsense Kind of a woman, albeit tried.
The master of the house is older brother of said twins and a bit of a drunk. No matter how devilishly handsome Desiderio Larosa is, there seem to be issues this family needs to deal with.
As Amber and Desiderio try to learn how to navigate this new relationship, an undertone of connection and chemistry swirls around them. There is so much emotional turmoil and angst that the story unfolds in segments and disjointed discoveries. It weaves into a revelation of love and self-discovery. Both learn to let go and face and one that would be perf
