I found it similar to FSOG in only the most general sense (older millionaire male, younger struggling female)…
We first meet Serena as she is running from something: it isn’t until further in we realize that she is running from a life that to this point has been abusive and dream crushing, and only running away will let her follow her dream of being a photographer. She has a fairly lonely existence, with horrible parental figures and not much support or belief in her: so the interest in Gustav is understandable.
When Serena meets Gustav Levi. A dark and handsome stranger with a vampirical vibe. Gustav is far older than Serena, well placed in his gallery and quite successful his last relationship sounded the death knell on his ability to trust in a relationship.
From the moment they Gustav and Serena meet, they are instantly attracted to one another.
I loved this book! This was captivating and well written with characters that leapt off the page and is definitely just as good if not better than 50 shades.
I CAN’T WAIT for book 2!! The cliff-hanger really left me hanging! I want to know what happens with Serena and Gustav!! ☺
