Jayne Shepherd has spent his life blending in. He smiles. He laughs. He’s likable. He’s also a sociopath. His emotions are limited. Love, fear, desire don’t exist in his world. Until he meets Elijah.
Elijah Dunne had everything. Third generation Hollywood royalty. Child star. Untouchable. Until one man ruined it all. Elijah fled LA to try to forget, but now, he’s back on top and back on a monster’s radar. Elijah doesn’t think he’ll ever feel safe. Until he meets Shepherd.
Elijah and Shep only have one thing in common. They both wear masks. Shep makes Elijah feel protected. Seen. Elijah makes Shep just feel. Now that he’s had a taste, he’s not about to let him go.
Everybody warns that what they have isn’t real. Shep is obsessed with Elijah, not in love. But Elijah craves Shep’s obsession. He can’t imagine life without him. In Hollywood, being a sociopath is more a life skill than a diagnosis. Could Shep be the monster Elijah needs to finally slay his demons?

Yeah, age gap romances are good for me too 🙂 I read in a review today that someone wanted her dead. Hmm, unpopular lady, Elijah’s mother, lol.
You know what? Shep being ‘rough around the edges’ is a good description, and it is an enjoyable book. Just a little different.
Thanks, Cindi 🙂
I LOVE books with characters who have age gaps, as you know. I would’ve totally hated Elijah’s mother. The more I listened to your review the more I wanted to hug him. Shep sounds a bit rough around the edges but in a good way. This looks really good.
Great review, Karen.
