Synopsis

AJ 

The name AJ Colthurst may not have any meaning to the public eye, but it should, as I’m the daughter of two famous celebrities. Like any superstar, they crave privacy; so much of it, they built a house in the middle of nowhere for us children. As we grew older, we discovered the lies they built as a fort to protect us from the media, ended up causing emotional damage along the way.
I carry a portion of the guilt on my shoulders; the other part I discovered is the separation of my parents. Their unorthodox ways may have driven me bonkers, but knowing they are no longer together is unacceptable. 
That’s why I decided to rattle their cage by reminding at least one of my parents of the past and the reason they belong together. They need to remember why their love is so perfect and why they have to fight to keep it alive. Even if it means I have to dredge up some of my own painful memories along the way.

Gabe 

Back in the early eighties, I set myself to succeed in the financial world. The first step had been moving to New York City to become a stockbroker, but things didn’t work out the way I had hoped. Instead, I ended up making movies and by the end of the decade, Gabe Colt had become a famous name. The downside to my career of choice: the paparazzi. In order to protect my family and our privacy, I maintained my family away from the circus. It had been for their own good; a decision we had made before we started our family. 
However, those past decisions ended up chasing my entire family away and now I’m trying to put the pieces back together along with my little girl.

Started off confused but ended up loving it!
March 9th, 2015
It's not often I start a book almost totally lost and end up being blown away by it at the end. It's also not often I forget what a book is about before I start reading it, and I'm so thankful that this is one time it happened. I'm also thankful can read new things and realize I'm okay with it, even though that's not always the case with everyone. This book was really different for me. Up until about 33% of the book, I wasn't sure what was going on. I had ideas, and hunches, but as it turned out, they were wrong. To try and get a grip on things, I stopped reading and read the blurb, but that didn't help clear up my confusion. Now let me clarify, even though I was confused as to what was going on and what the story was about, I couldn't stop reading it. I wanted to know what the great mystery was and the whole reason for secrecy that would deny children and a healthy relationship. When it came to the characters, I was on the fence about how I felt about them. The story is told from AJ and Gabe's points of view. I liked both of them for the most part. There were parts when I felt like AJ was acting like a brat and there were points when I thought Gabe needed a good smack to the back of his head to bring him to his senses. Luckily, he managed to do that on his own, with some help from his children, so no violence was necessary. I was also able to figure out the cause of my confusion. It turns out that the story starts in the present, goes into the past, and then comes back to the present. All of the chapters are neatly laid out, so you know whose head we're in and what year we're in. The story clicked for me after Gabe started recalling how he's met the love of his life. There was a twist that I didn't see coming, and I was surprised by it. I like how the author laid it out there. It was something I'm not used to reading, and I know some people will not read the book because of it. I do like the message the book conveyed and the method in which it was conveyed. I'm looking forward to reading more books in this series and am hoping AJ finds some peace and happiness. She really had it rough in this book.
