New Adult and contemporary romance novels are Ana Huang's main genres. Her stories range from lighthearted to dark, but they all end with a happy ending and a lot of swooning and banter.
Our protagonist, Ava Chen, has known Alex Volkov for a long time because he is her brother's best friend. When she becomes stranded, her brother orders Alex to pick her up, which kicks off a relationship between them.
Alex Volkov is a devil with an angelic face and a cursed past that he can't get out of.
His ruthless pursuits of success and vengeance, motivated by a tragedy that has haunted him for the majority of his life, leave little room for heartfelt issues.
However, when he is required to care for the sister of his best friend, he begins to feel something in his chest:
a fire that had the power to destroy his entire world.
Ava Chen is a feisty individual who is ensnared by nightmares about a childhood she cannot recall.
She has, however, never stopped recognizing the beauty in the world—including the heart that lies beneath the icy exterior of a man she shouldn't want—despite her broken past.
Best friend of her brother.
She lives nearby.
Both her salvation and her demise.
Their love was never meant to last, but when it does, it reveals secrets that have the potential to destroy them both—as well as everything they hold dear.

While Alex and Ava slowly fall in love, more secrets are being kept about them, and if those secrets are revealed, they could jeopardize everything they hold most dear. However, there are times when love is strong enough to overcome everything.
