PERSONAL MARYSE NOTE: I struggle with scenes of abuse BIG TIME (though I LOVE books about women on the run or starting over AFTER abuse, so in those instances, I can handle it). I don’t mind reading about obnoxiously bossy or possessive/jealous heroes, as long as they are ALSO protective and loving. Mental or physical (of any sort) abuse just kills it for me. I tend to DNF a lot of those depending on how “in your face” and upfront it is.
I want to apologize beforehand that I remember so little.
Its a book about h whose relative died and left her a cabin in a small town. When h moves to the cabin, H is there. h’s relative left half of the cabin to H.
I think h is in some kind of danger that H stubbornly stays at the cabin also to protect h.
I think h and H grew up together and the dead relative leaves them both the cabin to get them together.
Giulia is looking for this book! It almost makes me think of Craving Constellations (The Aces) (due to the extremely abusive ex she was hiding from)… but I’m not sure.

<— SHE ESCAPES FROM HER ABUSIVE HUSBAND ALERT!! Almost Like You by Karen Crompton IS LIVE & she is sponsoring this week’s Friday newsletter!
This sounds right up my romance/domestic thriller dark alley! I love the whole starting over/hiding out theme (and then meeting someone… and learning to trust again. The dangers… the slow burn. YES PLEASE) This one just gave me a HUGE blurb jolt!
And on release day, the author let us into her writing world about this particular story:
