When former Olympic Swimmer, Michael Adams—now Canada’s hottest reality TV star— insults his fake showbiz wife on social media, he escapes the ensuing scandal and jumps on the first flight to Australia. Desperate to experience ordinary life again—if only for a few weeks—he becomes “Adam”, just another tourist traveling through the Outback. But with a reward out for his safe return and his fame’s nasty habit of catching up with him when he least expects, he needs a better disguise… and he’s just found it.
Sweet and scruffy British backpacker, Evie Blake, is taking a year out of her busy London life. Tired of lies and liars, she’s looking for adventure to heal her broken heart. So when the hot Canadian she meets at the campground offers to be her travel partner through Western Australia’s wild Kimberley region, she grabs the chance, unaware he’s got the world out looking for him.
He’s just a down-on-his-luck traveler, right?
This was a very sweet story. It had good humor, and just the perfect amount of steam to make it my kind of story. There were definitely some emotional aspects, and Adam, or Michael really, his back story was very interesting and unique I thought. I liked the setting of Australia, and really wished I could be there to see all of the scenery that was described. I also wondered if any of that area was in the recent fires.
The characters had great chemistry, even if at first Adam really did frustrate me with his pushing her away. And I wondered if there was more to his story because of that. I liked the free spirit that Evie was, and seeing how she dealt with her ex. A good cry, but then also still not being able to completely let go, which is really something I feel is realistic.

After two decades working in TV production, she knew turning those stories into novels would be much more enjoyable – and far cheaper – than turning them into films.
