Book Description

She’s out of a job. He’s a reclusive, geeky gamer god. Will these two find love again after a complicated past?


Catalina Richardson tries to do everything right, but technology keeps getting in her way. Like when she was in high school and texted naked photos of herself to her boyfriend. That cost her a scholarship and her reputation. And it ended the best relationship she's ever had.


Now fired from her job at a New York City news website — that politician’s dick pics weren’t her idea — Catalina’s back home on Palmira Island and runs into the one person she’s tried to forget: her ex-boyfriend and first love, Diego Rodriguez.


Diego’s living large. He’s the founder of a wildly successful video game startup, where fans watch him and his buddies play games for a living. Tech magazines say he’s one of the sexiest gamers in the world.


But when Catalina walks back into his life one rainy Florida night, he knows that he needs to set aside his on-camera act. Because he’s not about to lose the woman he loves a second time.


Trouble is, someone’s trying to thwart Diego’s success and his fragile relationship with Catalina. Will he find out who's sending him Catalina’s embarrassing old photos? And, will she trust him to make everything right, or keep running away?


This is a standalone in the Burning Secrets trilogy — they don't need to be read in order!
