I met Mathias Sloan in a club. Truth. I told him I was twenty-four. Lie. I told him my name was Olivia. Lie. I thought that I would have a one-night stand and be done with him. Truth. I didn’t know that he was my new piano instructor for the next six months… Truth. We would come together and fall apart. After him, every man was ruined. Truth. If I knew what I know now, I wouldn’t have walked to him. I would’ve turned and run… LIE.
Our flight was at eleven. I glanced at my watch. 8 AM. We should be in the car and on our way to

the airport by now, but I couldn’t seem to move.

I was just hurting myself. Hope was for fools. The smart people in the world accepted that and

moved on. And the fools, the ones like me, would never understand. No matter how much pain was

tossed their way.

Finally, after a few minutes, I gave up. I adjusted the strap of my purse and walked toward the front


Then I saw him.

He stopped in his tracks. So did I.

He was a disaster and there was no other way to put it. His hair was pointing up in crazy directions. I

could picture him repeatedly dragging his fingers through it. He was still in yesterday’s clothes. His shirt

was unevenly buttoned, as if he had jumped out of bed and grabbed the first thing he saw.

It soothed me, just a little, that he was suffering as much as I was.

He walked toward me, looking like a man on a mission, and didn’t stop until he was directly in front

of me. Standing this close I saw that his eyes were bloodshot and a day’s worth of stubble was growing


“I thought you’d be gone,” he said.

I gestured to the limo waiting outside. “I’m leaving right now.” 

His shoulders sagged and he closed his eyes. I’d never seen him look so defeated. “I’m sorry about

last night. I fucked up.”

“I’m sorry, too.”

He stared at me imploringly, almost like he wanted to say something else but couldn’t get the words

to form on his tongue.

“Stay,” he said.

We stayed apart, but he might as well have been touching me.

“I can’t, Mathias,” I whispered brokenly.

“Katja, I will give you anything, I mean, anything, in this world just to keep you.”


He nodded.

“Give me your heart.”

My Review
This is the first book of Calia's I have ever read and I am hooked. Her writing style is beautiful, and boy can she tell a story!
I love the Germanic tones this book has. It is very authentic and I think sets the stage for the story. 
Mathias is.....closed off. Secrets abound our main man and it will take a strong woman to set him free. Enter Katja. She is outspoken and strong. Just what Mathias needs.
Their story is filled with angst that will have you on an emotional high one minute and asking yourself, "WHY?!?" the next. I love student/teacher romances and this one is up there as one of my favorites. Now I need the first two books in the story to get to know the rest of the Sloan brothers. 
A 4.5 star read and a must have for those that love the angst!
