Lizzie Kent needs to forget the past. She lives in total anonymity, immersing herself in
nursing to help her forget. But when a man from her previous life turns up in her clinic, the life she’s tried to create for herself may come toppling down.

Ash knows what he wants and he wants Lizzie, the girl who left him all those years ago. As Hollywood's greatest action superstar no one says no to him, but when Lizzie refuses to acknowledge their shared past, he has to resort to a little old fashioned blackmail.

Will Lizzie revisit her past to enable her future with the man she loves, or do old wounds run too deep?
This book just missed it a bit for me.  When Ash blackmails Lizzie to spend time with him, he became a not very nice guy in my book.  The fact that Lizzie went along with it was even worse.  She knew his plan would fail if she just spoke up about it.  The redeeming factor for both of them didn't happen until the very end - after they had their big fight and basically swore to never speak to each other again.  It was all just a little too dramatic for my taste.  Perhaps that's just what you get when you have a movie star as a main character.
