Early in her life, Josephine Malone learned the hard way that there was only one person she could love and trust: her grandmother, Lydia Malone. Out of necessity, unconsciously and very successfully, Josephine donned a disguise to keep all others at bay. She led a globetrotting lifestyle on the fringes of the fashion and music elite, but she kept herself distant.

While Josephine was trotting the globe, retired boxer Jake Spear was living in the same small town as Lydia. There was nothing disguised about Jake. Including the fact he made a habit of making very bad decisions about who to give his love.

But for Josephine and Jake, there was one person who adored them. One person who knew how to lead them to happiness. And one person who was intent on doing it.

Even if she had to do it as her final wish on this earth.

The speech affectation of Josie, the main character, made this book an irritating read - I've never seen the word "alas" used 100 times by the same character in a book before and it was not welcome. It also felt weird reading the sex scenes, like she was some kind of naive alien that was being taken advantage of. That's not how rich people talk, that's not how ANYONE talks. In general, the language used in this book was problematic - the friend talks graphically and yuckily about arousal, the love interest swears like a sailor in front of his kids, and the word "babe" is ubiquitous no matter if you're talking to woman you just met, daughter, or wife. Apparently, everyone who meets Josie adores her, but I just wanted to throw her off a cliff.read more
