From the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of Where Sea Meets Sky comes a new adult novel about a young woman who becomes a nanny in Capri and falls for her charges’ bad-boy brother.
When I’m traveling, I feel like the secret to my life, to myself, to really becoming, is one step ahead. It’s in the next destination, the next town I get lost in, the next stranger I talk to. It’s always next but never here . . .
After six months of backpacking and soul-searching across the world, Amber MacLean is flat broke. There are worse places for a twentysomething to be stuck than the Amalfi Coast, but the only way she can earn enough money for a plane ticket home to California is to teach English to two of the brattiest children she has ever met.
It doesn’t help that the children are under the care of their brooding older brother, ex-motorcycle racer Desiderio Larosa. Darkly handsome and oh-so-mysterious, the young master of the crumbling villa tests Amber’s patience and will at every turn—not to mention her hormones.
When her position turns into a full-time nanny gig, Amber grows dangerously closer to the enigmatic recluse. But can she give up the certainty of home for someone whose closely guarded heart feels a world apart from her own?
I had forgotten how Karina Halle has this amazing ability to completely draw in her readers to the story that she is writing. You almost feel like you are there in the shadows watching everything take place. You feel all the emotions: anger, heartbreak, sadness, happiness, horniness. She just makes you feel. Racing The Sun is no exception either. Personally I think this is one of the best books of hers that I have read yet, now before you go throwing stones and screaming what about this book or what about that one, I haven’t read everything she has written yet but everything I have read I have loved.
I was drawn into Amber and Derio’s storyline and I didn’t want to put it down even for a minute, although sadly I had to because of those spawns, I mean kids that I have. Remember that feeling of being in the shadows comment I made above, I would have done anything to be able to be there to witness the passion Amber and Derio shared. Hell I just wanted to be in Italy period.
If you haven’t ever read a book of Ms. Halle's I highly recommend that you do because she will take you on a journey that will stay with you in your heart for a very long time.
