Passion burns as brightly as ever in Sophie McKenzie’s latest fizzing addition to the powerful love story of River and Flynn. Over a year has passed and River is sure she’s over her relationship with the magnetic but troubled Flynn. Working hard for her A levels and living with her Dad and Gemma on the commune she is enjoying life. But her path crosses again with Flynn and the old flames flare up. Can River resist especially as she can see Flynn needs her help? Sophie McKenzie brilliantly captures the tortuous thrill of this troubled but gripping romance. ~ Julia Eccleshare

Synopsis

Defy the Stars by Sophie McKenzie

The fourth and final title in this romance series, charting the ups and downs of River’s first love with unpredictable Flynn. Through the series so far we’ve seen the couple face plenty of challenges, and at the end of previous book, Casting Shadows, they parted on bad terms. An absolutely gripping finale filled with Sophie’s trademark thriller writing and plenty of tension.

After months apart, everyone thinks that River is successfully building a future without Flynn. Indeed, she has almost convinced herself that she is moving on. And then, one day, Flynn is back, bringing with him tales of his glamorous new life. River suspects his lucrative new work involves some form of criminal activity, but will she let herself be drawn back into Flynn's world?

Or is this, finally, the end of the line for them both?

There are four books in this romance series from Sophie McKenzie...follow the links to download an extract of each.
