About The Book

A small-town second chance romance from the bestselling author of Flawless and Wild Love.

I met Violet Eaton online. What happened between us, in our chats, was meant to stay anonymous and in the past. Until it didn’t.

It’s a small world, but Ruby Creek is even smaller. When I move to the tiny town, the grumpy facade I’ve created slips when Violet and I are forced to live under the same roof. Every time her eyes flare with heat, the ice I’ve encased myself in melts. She has me wanting things I can’t want – things I don’t deserve.

But my invisible wounds have the power to ruin us both. As a former soldier, I should have the discipline to walk away, but the more I open up to Violet, the more I want to keep her. I came back from the war a different man, but my scars are older and deeper than anyone knows – and I planned to keep it that way. I planned to keep my secrets hidden. Until her.

Features an exclusive bonus scene, limited to this paperback edition!

Elsie Silver is the international bestselling author of the Chestnut Springs, Gold Rush Ranch and Rose Hills series. Elsie writes sassy, sexy, small-town romances featuring good book boyfriends and the strong heroines who bring them to their knees. She lives just outside of Vancouver, British Columbia with her husband, son and three dogs, and has been voraciously reading romance books since before she was probably supposed to. She loves cooking and trying new foods, traveling, and spending time with her boys – especially outdoors. Elsie has also become a big fan of her quiet five a.m. mornings, which is when most of her writing happens. It’s during this time that she can sip a cup of hot coffee and dream up a fictional world full of romantic stories to share with her readers.

Raves and Reviews

'I loved this! The banter was great and the steam was off the charts hot!!'

Stephanie, Goodreads

'Where are the rest of the stars? Because this book deserves at least 10. Cole and Violet made me feel everything I could feel. Their story and their unusual but oh so sexy way they met and what unfolded later, had me turning the pages like crazy.'

Chula Reads Romance, Goodreads

'Y'all – my heart. This book. I can't go any farther into my ramblings without saying that A Photo Finish annihilated most of my Top Books of 2021. It also got me out of a major book funk. Push it to the top of your TBR right freaking now.'

Lexi, Goodreads

'This has so many things I crave in romance: small town, grumpy/sunshine, a damaged hero, a strong heroine, forced proximity, delicious slow burn. I seriously couldn't ask for more.'

Shelby, Goodreads
