What happens when love and loyalty collide?
Tess Woods’ new book Beautiful Messy Love is a West Side Story for fans of Offspring and glorious love stories like those of Nicholas Sparks.
When football star Nick Harding hobbles into the Black Salt Café the morning after the night before, he is served by Anna, a waitress with haunted-looking eyes and no interest in footballers, famous or otherwise. Nick is instantly drawn to this exotic, intelligent girl, but a relationship between them risks shame for her conservative refugee family and backlash for Nick that could ruin his career.
Meanwhile Nick’s sister, Lily, is struggling to finish her medical degree. When she meets Toby, it seems that for the first time she is following her heart, not the expectations of others. What starts out as a passionate affair with a man who just buried his wife slips into dangerous dependency.
Scarred by tragedy each in their own way, these characters must face prejudice and heartbreak to learn just how much beautiful messy love can mean.
