Journal Entry 1 by Camethyste from Vancouver, Washington USA on Sunday, September 3, 2017
Four years ago, Eliza had a spontaneous fling with Leo Valente while on holiday on a temporary escape from the extraordinary pressures of her life. Despite falling in love, at the end of her holiday, she refused Leo's proposal of marriage and told him she was already taken. She didn't explain the circumstances of her engagement and left him feeling like he'd been used.

Now in the present, Leo shows up very conveniently to help bail out her beloved school which is about to go under due to lack of funding. He needs a temporary nanny to take care of his little girl and wants her to take the job.

For the most part, I enjoyed reading this story. While I didn't like how the characters were dealing with their situations, I can understand their reactions. I did feel that Leo showing up precisely at the time he did was very unlikely. And I found myself irritated with Ethan's mother. For someone that supposedly loved Eliza so much, I have difficulty with her selfishness in letting Eliza give up her life for someone that would never know the difference. Samantha could certainly have stayed in Eliza's life while Eliza found happiness with someone other than Ethan. But in the end, all's well that ends well, I guess.
