From USA Today Bestselling Author Ella James, A Standalone Forbidden Romance with a throw your kindle twist.

"A sexy, emotional escape—Covet is your next must-read!" Laurelin Paige, NYTimes Bestselling Author

"A friends to lovers romance set in a land of isolated beauty. An epic love story that broke my heart and sewed it back together again." My One-Click Addiction

Homer Carnegie. Admit it—you know my name. Your kid’s got my e-trading card. Your husband sits up straighter when I stroll onto the TV screen. He knows I’m going to crack the bat and save the day. Even your grandma’s jonesing for my autograph. But women my age? They’re the worst. Or would that be the best?

It’s not my fault they line up at the door. They catch my balls all right, two at a time sometimes. Believe me, everybody wins.

At least they did—until the video. I heard TMZ paid a million for a bird’s eye view of Homer on his A-game. The only folks who didn’t watch with eager eyes? Red Sox management. They want me benched, or worse, shipped off to rehab.

It’s a long story, what happens next. How I end up on a boat, bound for the world’s most remote island: Tristan da Cunha. Just a speck of dust in the Atlantic.

Except my heart is there. I don’t know that when I step onto the boat. I don’t know a lot of things. What I’ll covet… What I’ll lose…

“Life is never going to be perfect. So I choose the next best thing. I’m choosing perfect for a time. I’m choosing bliss for all the moments we can find it.”

 

Review:

Ella James is an outstanding writer, she’s got a talent that impresses me every time. The only thing that ever stops me from giving her books higher ratings is that her books are really long, and some of the scenes/details are unnecessary. They just don’t move the plot forward or add anything to the story. If we could get past that then I think several books would be rated a bit higher by me.

This story is a bit different, which is a trend with Ella, and there is something about those kinds of books that I like. Declan and Finley are intriguing and the secrets will keep you interested in turning each page. When you get the big reveal, it’s a doozy. I also want to mention that the vague blurbs always get me. They get me every time. LOL

 

“My heart pitter-patters, as if something inside’s creaked and now is leaking.”
“Sadness blossomed like a flower in my heart.”
“It’s true what they say: home is where the heart is. And my heart is joined to his heart, braided together.”
