Vera is a well educated character, who is running from her past.
She doesn't share or trust people. Its hard for her to open up to Sebastian
and tell him why she is running. But right when she is ready to, her
world is turned upside down. The bottom drops out.
Sebastian is a rich ass, who was manipulated by his mom and all the
other women around him. He is leery of Vera, yet craves her.
She is the key to his happiness and survival.
Can she accept it?
At some parts in this book I did skim, because I didn't care about Vera's
friend or her boyfriend. I wanted to know more about Vera and
Sebastian. The ending was forseeable.
