Synopsis:


Everyone knew Alicia Harrison’s marriage to Ilya Stern wouldn’t last. They’d grown up on a remote stretch of Quarry Street, where there were two houses, two sets of siblings, and eventually, a tangled mess of betrayal, longing, and loss. Tragedy catapulted Allie and Ilya together, but divorce—even as neighbors—has been relatively uncomplicated.

Then Ilya’s brother, Nikolai, comes home for their grandmother’s last days. He’s the guy who teased and fought with Allie, infuriated her, then fled town without a good-bye.
Now Niko makes her feel something else entirely—a rush of connection and pure desire that she’s been trying to quench since one secret kiss years ago. Niko’s not sticking around. She’s not going to leave. And after all that’s happened between their families, this can’t be anything more than brief pleasure and a bad idea.

But the lies we tell ourselves can’t compete with the truths our hearts refuse to let go…


The Why:



I didn't know what to think of this book especially it being my first time reading Megan Hart. Also, since I was working on Hour 10 of without power so I had plenty of time. 




It was multiple POV's, each showcases a divorced woman Alicia who lives across the street from her ex husband IIyla, who's also in love with her brother, Nikolai. The angsty push and pull between her and Nikolai made me want to scream. Then, there was the Sterns' stepsister Theresa who's back in town but who's came with a mystery unsolved. 



A whole bunch of Huh?



The book reads like you're supposed to solve a mystery, but you never find out it even is and what you're supposed to be solving and you're left with more of a angsty romance between Nikolai and Alicia, who have been in each other's lives since kids and have loved the other for the same. but because of circumstances and time they haven't got together.





Final Thoughts:


I liked it, but I wished there was a mystery like it hinted at the entire book and it was solved. But I did enjoy the romance though. Maybe her other works will rate better on my scale.
