Among the uber-famous, she’s the most highly sought-after fragrance maker—and a well-kept secret. But designing a scent for pop’s newest superstar could take Nicola King and her family’s business from elite to downright legendary. Of course, mystery is part of Nicola’s brand—so no one knows she’s actually an over-cautious person who always puts her own life on permanent hold. Until her ultra-personal list of regrets is accidentally put on a social media blast—and she’s challenged to go after everything she really wants.

From finding a hobby to reconnecting with a family member, Nicola’s getting some surprising results. But when she reveals her deepest, darkest secret of all to her troubled sister, the fallout threatens her budding romance, her career, and her reputation. Now between ambition, heartbreak, and hard truths, Nicola must risk the courage to fix the damage—and decide what success truly means.

And if audiobooks is your jam, I encourage you to use the app. is an audiobook app that supports independent bookstores with their audiobook sales. I LOVE listening to audiobooks during the day while I am on the go & saving my physical books for evening time in my rocker with my cozy blankey & a cuppa tea. Sometimes audiobooks just make certain books so much more engaging & better, & you are STILL supporting the author, publisher & bookstore with your audiobook purchases.
