INTRODUCING YOUR NEXT OBSESSION...

EVERYONE IN THE WORLD KNOWS HIS NAME.
BUT IT'S YOU HE WANTS.


At thirty-nine, Solène Marchand is a devoted mother, a dedicated colleague and a considerate ex-wife.

But it's a long time since she's felt like herself.

So when someone comes along who seems to see her - to want her - for who she really is, the attraction is instant. And so begins a jet-setting, earth-shattering secret love affair.

But what if that someone is world-famous sex symbol Hayes Campbell? Captivating frontman of boy band of the moment August Moon - whose face is everywhere. Including Solène's teenage daughter's bedroom wall.

Can Solène allow herself to fall for the boy the whole world wants?

OR WILL SHE HAVE TO MAKE A DEVASTATING CHOICE..?
