~ Synopsis ~
I met Mathias Sloan in a club.
I told him I was twenty-four.
I told him my name was Olivia.
I thought that I would have a one-night stand and be done with him.
I didn’t know that he was my new piano instructor for the next six months…
We would come together and fall apart. After him, every man was ruined.
If I knew what I know now, I wouldn’t have walked to him. I would’ve turned and run…

“Katja,” he growled as he grabbed my arm.
“Let go,” I hissed.
I pulled away and hurried to open the door. His hand landed on the door and shoved it back in the frame. I whirled around, realizing I was caged between his arms.
“Move away, Mathias.”
My lips still tingled from his kiss. It was too soon to be this close to him. His hands remained splayed against the door. He leaned in and I felt the heat of his body as if it was my own.
“Why did you come and see me perform?” I asked.
He tilted his head to the side. “Why do you think?”
“I don’t know,” I pressed my body against the door.
Mathias smiled, but it was dark. “Why do you keep moving? Think you can run away?” He smiled bitterly. “I’ve tried that. It doesn’t work.”
“What do you want me to say?”
“I want you to tell me you’ve thought about me as much as I’ve thought about you.”
I pressed my lips together in a flat line.
Mathias’ eyes were glued to mine. “You haven’t thought about me at all?”
I stared at him, wanting so badly to tell him I hadn’t, but knowing I couldn’t. It would be the biggest lie I’d ever told. I glanced away.
“Don’t look at the floor,” he demanded. “Look at me.”
I didn’t want to look at him. At that second, all I wanted to do was stare at the ground; it was safe to look there.
“Tell me the truth,” Mathias said. I felt his lips brush against my ear.

“From the moment we met, we were never ending. Tell me you know that”
“As I watched him walk away, the words replayed in my mind: YOU WILL RUIN HER.”
This author has gone and brought to life three delicious brothers, who with each of them have their own story to tell. In this one she brings you Mathias whom having met him periodically in the previous novels becomes loud and clear in this one. What was eluded to at the family gathering you get the inside scoop in what was going on. He has a secret too that makes for a more intriguing read then the other two. Being approached to take on tutoring a rising name in piano he agrees and off to Germany he goes. Little did Olivia know when she is on what is teasingly referred to as her last night of freedom for a while would she meet someone who would change her forever. His life is a bit different being he is not in school like his brothers with also him making a promise that will be impossible to keep. Having burning desires also within him left unfulfilled is another reason to the almost like torture he will put himself in a position never thought he would travel again. This author sure knows how to hook and bait a reader with this one having the best for last. The feeling and emotion that will go on between these two will have you hanging on as she is sculptured to win. As a reader you will really want this brother to find the love he has missing from his life and that not being just what he had to give up. Love will also change them both with a battle of wills that will be also sweet agony for them and the reader. When they have their time apart you just want to shake them both to their senses shouting at them not to let each other go. Then when she steps into his world on his turf you swipe you brow saying finally now maybe just maybe. Love is very evident with these two but stubbornness can be a person’s hardest battle to overcome. A glorious battle is just what this author will give you when Mathias shows Olivia just how serious he is with you finally sighing saying it is about time. So this author sure can take three brothers turn their lives inside out for some of the most delightful and delicious reading in a long time. I give this 5 books.
