Author Name: Barbara Elsborg

Two men are separated by more than the dam between their houses. Can Mollie be the path that unites them?

Flint Klavan appears to have it all. The sought-after British actor is affluent, loved and vocal in his professional life but privately he’s a mess. A devastating breakup leaves him full of self-loathing. He hopes to find the way to turn things around when disaster strikes. He’s left speechless with fear he’ll never get the chance to recover what he’s lost.

Mollie James has the perfect job teaching children, and used to have the perfect boyfriend. Attentive, kind and thoughtful. Only now he’s not. She has to sacrifice everything if she’s any chance to survive, and run as fast and as far as she can.
Lysander Weldon is a wealthy, talented artist who’s hidden himself away following personal tragedies. He shares his house and his body but never his heart. When opportunity to forgive confronts him, he has to choose between giving up his fortress or bracing to watch happiness leave him behind.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of physical abuse and MM content.

I truly enjoyed this story.  It had good intrigue, mystery and the romance love story was amazing!

I think the character whom I truly loved with Flint.  He showed an amazing character even behind his Hollywood persona.

Mollie and Lysander were amazing characters too.  But the relationship that developed between Mollie and Flint was one of pure love – one that only would have developed with exactly the circumstances that they met, where they were in their life and who they wanted to become.

Lysander’s character, for me, took a bit of warming up.  He seemed almost too grouchy.  But, once you learn him beyond his outward exterior, he grew on me.  He was amazingly patient and loving towards both Mollie and Flint.

This book had some very hot scenes and the romance between the three was outstanding.

I loved this story and would definitely read more from Elsbord.


I completely loved this story. The beginning sort of dragged for me as we were learning about three seperate lives, but once they started to twist together the book became so hard for me to put down. It was a bit on the longer side, but I really don’t know how there could’ve been anything taken from it.
There is a lot going on with each character and in the end there is great closure for all I believe.
The scenes between all three were super hot and you could feel the love that had been lost and refound between the men along with the need and passionate that came with Mollie being added to the mix.
I would totally pick up another book by this author as I couldn’t wait to find out how everything went for all of them all the way until the very end, where we were blessed with another little surprise.

Barbara Elsborg lives in West Yorkshire in the north of England. She always wanted to be a spy, but having confessed to everyone without them even resorting to torture, she decided it was not for her. Vulcanology scorched her feet. A morbid fear of sharks put paid to marine biology. So instead, she spent several years successfully selling cyanide.

After dragging up two rotten, ungrateful children and frustrating her sexy, devoted, wonderful husband (who can now stop twisting her arm) she finally has time to conduct an affair with an electrifying plugged-in male, her laptop.

Her books feature quirky heroines and bad boys, and she hopes they are as much fun to read as they are to write.
