Arden Simms — an average twenty-five-year-old med student — is headstrong, inde- pendent, and spends most of her time consumed by her studies. The last thing she wants is a romantic relationship that could cause her life to veer off track.
Slayde Price is gorgeous, kind, and well on his way to fame and fortune. But the shal- low people he’s surrounded by in Paris have started to bore him, and he’s contemplating a way out of his contract so he can return home.
Their worlds collide when Arden flies to Paris to visit her sister — and finds that her selfish younger sister has struck again, leaving Arden alone in a strange city with no place to stay. When Slayde bumps into Arden, his ex-girlfriend’s sister, on a crowded street, he decides he may just want to stay in Paris a little longer.
Before long, Arden realizes that ignoring her feelings for Slayde isn’t as easy as she’d thought it would be.
Craft’s first in the Price of love series hooks readers with its smoldering intensity and page-turning dramatic twists.
Debut author Craft delivers a well-written, angsty new adult contemporary with an imperfect, lovable heroine. Med student Arden Simms heads to Paris to vacation with her flighty, self-absorbed model sister, Kenedy, but when she gets to the City of Light, her sister is nowhere to be found. Enter Slayde Price, Kenedy’s fellow model and ex-boyfriend, on whom Arden has long had a crush. Passion escalates so quickly that it frightens Arden, and after some devastating news, she does what she does best: she runs away. Slayde follows her to Los Angeles, but as his fame rises after he nabs a key movie role, the pressures of Tinseltown begin to wear on both of them. While Arden’s insecurities are a bit hard to fathom, her vulnerability adds strength to her character, and Slayde’s perfection will have readers hoping for a Slayde of their own. Several appealing secondary characters are slated to star in future series installments. - Publishers Weekly
