About the Book:
After the death of her parents, Robbie Byrne is put in foster care where she meets her exact opposite, Luc Cintrone. Abandoned as a small child, Luc is a foul-mouthed rebel who takes it upon himself to be her defender, whether she likes it or not. As they grow up, they fumble through their different roles in each other's lives—family, confidants and then, ultimately, lovers.
Just as the couple is settling into their newfound relationship, they encounter a beautiful lawyer, Payten, who is immediately taken by Luc's rough edges. But he denies her, making him absolutely irresistible in her eyes. Payten is a woman who has grown accustomed in her privileged life in obtaining whatever she wants, no matter the cost or sacrifice. And she is fairly confident Luc will eventually see things her way…one way or another.
A Modern Love Story had me hooked from the beginning pages. Your heart aches for Robbie as she loses her parents in the first chapter and cheers for her when she and Luc meet and start to develop a friendship. Robbie needs a protector and Luc steps up for the role on the first day. Throughout the book, you will cheer for Robbie and Luc’s friendship and long for the page where it takes a different turn (and many turns it takes.) I hope that you enjoy this book as much as I did.
