After days of waiting, she is taken by complete surprise when she is finally identified by Alex Rivers, Hollywood's biggest movie star - and her husband.Cassie is dazzled and bewildered by the fairytale in which she suddenly finds herself. But everything is not quite right, and there is something dark and disturbing behind this glamorous facade.

This is not a good Jodi book. Story was very predictable and I would not recommed it all. Rather try another Jodi if you do like her books.

This is definately Jodi Picoult's worst book. It is a real Mills&Boon romance with none of the characteristic twist in the plot of Jodi. Read any of her other books instead
