Genre: Contemporary, Romance
Published: February 5, 2019
Nina is the perfect daughter. She’s smart, beautiful and understands the responsibility of her family’s legacy. Her fiancé is her best friend and they’ve grown up together.
She feels pressure after her father dies to do everything he expected – marry the guy, run the company and continue his legacy.
This story is about love and loss. Learning that people don’t always deserve to be put on a pedestal. That it’s okay to be brave and honest. That sometimes you should make changes in your life if they are needed.
This was a very good read and I felt connected to the characters and their struggles.
