"You're unreliable in your love for me. You have no idea what it's like to be on the receiving end."

Jake Logan, an investment banker from New York, has been living in London for the past three years. One night, he meets Alice Francis, a lawyer. Sparks fly, and they soon begin a romantic relationship. Things are going very well, but Alice senses that Jake is hiding something about his past relationship. She eventually finds out that his ex-fiancé, Jessica Brooks, has been stalking him and that Jake stood her up at the altar. Jessica never got over it, and her shadow looms over Jake and Alice's relationship. To make things more complicated, Alice discovers she is pregnant and shares the news with Jake. Though shocked, he proposes to do things right by her, and she accepts. Unfortunately, as the reality of becoming a father hits Jake, he grows more distant from Alice. Jake's attitude will ultimately lead to devastating consequences.

Morgan’s literary work explores a range of themes, including the fear of commitment, love triangles, and the frustration that arises due to a lack of honesty in relationships. These themes are skillfully portrayed through the characters of Jake, Alice, and Jessica, each of whom possesses a unique voice that distinguishes them from the others. The author delves into how commitment phobia can be detrimental to one's partner, with men often shirking their responsibility and leaving their partners feeling abandoned, which can result in emotional pain and frustration. The author also sheds light on the unfortunate reality of women being invested in a one-sided relationship. The dialogue in the book provides readers with insights into the personalities and motivations of the characters, rendering them more relatable and engaging. With its intriguing storyline, the book is sure to captivate readers and keep them on the edge of their seats.
