Sometimes, you don’t know what you’re missing until you find it.
Aela is a shy and quiet, University student with her future mapped out and doesn’t think she could be happier- unless maybe if the hot guy she’s crushing on from the gym would notice her existence. Not that she has time for a guy right now…
Declan should be happy. His tattoo parlour is a growing success, he can have his pick of beautiful women any night he so chooses and he’s easily able to provide for his mother and baby sister. He has everything he needs. But something is missing…
Until their two worlds collide, quite literally, and a fateful mishap ensures nothing will ever be the same again.
Unfortunately, things start unravelling for Declan and he is forced to decide if having Aela’s love is worth risking her life.
Will they find a way to overcome their obstacles? Or is this just another loss Declan will have to learn to live with?

~Aela~
My lungs and legs start to burn with
exhaustion, but I ignore it as I push to finish my last couple of kilometres on
the treadmill. So I turn the music up that’s already blaring in my headphones
for motivation.
I recheck the reflection in the window in
vain and try to ignore the pang of disappointment when the view of the weight
room is still the same—which is ridiculous. How can you miss someone you don’t
even know?
There’s sudden movement beside me, and I
startle, stumble and barely manage to save myself from face planting onto the
treadmill. I glare at Kara, who had just appeared out of nowhere on my left.
“What the hell are you trying to do, kill
me?” I gasp as I rip my headphones from my head. She laughs hysterically, bent
over clutching her stomach, which draws the attention of everyone around us.
“Your face… priceless. Oh, my God. I can’t
breathe,” Kara gasps through her laughter while I turn off the now
life-threatening machine as I wait for her to stop.
I deepen my glare.
“You’re a total bitch. What are you even
doing down here?” I ask when she finally straightens, her laugh turning into a
quiet giggle as she tries to control it.
“I thought I’d take advantage of the
resident’s discount and come see what you were doing.

review As a published writer, I’m jealous.  I wish that I could write like Ash.  I know, I know.  You should never compare yourself to another author but there are times when I do read a debut author and I’m jealous.  That’s when I realize that I should just stick with reading and reviewing.  Ms. Hosking wrote this book like “it’s no big deal”.  Just another day at the office.  Again…jealous.
What really drove me to love Aela and Declan was their ability to make the other person better.  Declan wasn’t the big, bad alpha that most people thought.  He was a teddy bear.  Fierce when it was necessary.  Family man and survived (somewhat) over a bad breakdown.  Aela was able to get past the hurt and have Declan love again.
Aela was just too much at times.  Funny, sexy and determined.  Plus, with her bestie Kara..  Which by the way, the secondary characters in the book are top notch.  Just the right amount and added so much to the romance and character development of Declan and Aela.
I wish that I could say some things in the book but Harlie’s is spoiler free.  I can say that the book has all the Aussie sayings that I love.  I’m a sucker for anything Aussie.  I’m still trying to wrap my head around that this perfect book was written by a debut author.
If you like smexy times, great dialogue, in depth character development and a hint of danger…this book is definitely for you.  I miss them already but I’m sure we will meet again.
