When I’m traveling, I feel like the secret to my life, to myself, to really becoming, is one step ahead. It’s in the next destination, the next town I get lost in, the next stranger I talk to. It’s always next but never here . . . 

After six months of backpacking and soul-searching across the world, Amber MacLean is flat broke. There are worse places for a twentysomething to be stuck than the Amalfi Coast, but the only way she can earn enough money for a plane ticket home to California is to teach English to two of the brattiest children she has ever met.

It doesn’t help that the children are under the care of their brooding older brother, ex-motorcycle racer Desiderio Larosa. Darkly handsome and oh-so-mysterious, the young master of the crumbling villa tests Amber’s patience and will at every turn—not to mention her hormones.

When her position turns into a full-time nanny gig, Amber grows dangerously closer to the enigmatic recluse. But can she give up the certainty of home for someone whose closely guarded heart feels a world apart from her own?

Title: Racing the Sun
Author:  Karina Hale
Release Date: July 28, 2015
Cliffhanger: No

Do you know where I spent my Sunday? I went to Italy and fell in love with Karina Halle’s book Racing the Sun.  I didn’t make it to Italy…but it felt like it. Hale’s descriptive writing transported me to the beaches in Italy alongside two perfectly scripted characters – Derio and Amber. This heartfelt and touching romance was absolute perfection! Racing the Sun was my first book by this author and definitely not my last. One-click this gorgeous and unputdownable love story.
