Publisher's Summary

Erik Keston, son of the Keston Real Estate empire, knows what it takes to be successful. Despite his inherent wealth, he holds his own. He works hard, he's grounded, he's brilliant. He's also secretly in love with his best friend.

Monroe Wellman lost his parents three years ago and never grieved, never recovered. Inheriting the family company and wealth means nothing, and his spiral of self-destruction is widespread and spectacular. Dubbed Sydney's bad boy, he spends more days drunk than sober, and the only person who's stuck by him through it all is his best mate.

But when Monroe hits rock bottom, Erik gives him an ultimatum, and his entire world comes to a grinding halt. It's not until the haze lifts that Monroe can truly see what he's been searching for was never in the bottom of a bottle. It's been by his side all along.

Contains mature themes.

Can anyone say “Brit faking an Aussie accent baaaaaadly?”

Horrid narration. NR Walker is an insta buy for me so I’d read the book and enjoyed it but I’m actually not sure how I got to the end of this. It completely ruined the story for me.

Why does every actor think Croc Dundee is still the epitome of how Australians talk?

Wow

Very sad at the beginning. It really bring out the real struggle of people with losing someone in their lives and not able to face it. So relatable so human

Love this story!

Erik and Monroe have been best friends for years, but after Monroe's parents die, he went overboard with drinking and partying and was losing Erik with his antics. Erik gives him an ultimatum and Monroe can't figure out what to do and starts having panic attacks. This is a story about addiction and love and how to deal with life. Love all the characters!
