The bomb ticking inside Abigail Williams has shadowed every moment of her adult life. With the timer counting down, Abi embarks on one final adventure into the Australian outback before returning to L.A. to fight for her life.

Sergeant Ryder Harper survived over a decade in Australia’s most elite military unit. He’s ready to hang up his assault rifle and drag what’s left of his broken body back home. He dreads the long flight back to Brisbane, until he collides with the stubborn, maddening seductress sitting beside him.

Abi ignites a need deep inside Ryder, leaving him desperate for more time with this woman with mesmerizing eyes and an even more intoxicating spirit. But when Abi finally relents to Ryder’s offer to be her outback guide, she has one condition: When it’s time, he’ll have to let her go.

Praise

“If you didn't have a hunger for a strong Australian man before this book, you most certainly will after reading it! Put down your books with vain rogues and arrogant millionaires. They are pansies compared to this rugged hunk of masculinity - I am quite serious, put those books down right now. You are also going to want to get out your credit card, buy a plane ticket to Australia, and get down on your knees and pray a guy like Ryder Harper sits down next to you. Just wait!” –Meghan L., Goodreads

Well-balanced romance with a solid plot. I really enjoyed it!” –Lori B., NetGalley

“What an incredibly emotional read!  You're going to laugh and cry with this one so be prepared!” –Heather N., Goodreads

“If you don’t go through two tissue boxes by the end of this book, you’re not human. I laughed, I cried, and I swooned!” –Erika C., NetGalley

LOVED this book!  I was immediately engrossed in the characters' story - so much that I felt invested in their tale and kept hoping for them to get a HEA. I've added the author to my must read authors' list.” –Linda Q., Goodreads

Against All Odds is an emotional and heartfelt romance of two wounded souls who find healing in each other.” –Christine, Straight Shootin’ Book Reviews

One of my 2017 reading resolution goals is to pick up more books by new to me authors. Not knowing anything about their writing style means it can be a hit or miss venture. In this case, it’s a hit as I found Against All Odds by Jezz de Silva definitely worth the read!

I'm not traditionally much of a Romance reader, but I'm so glad I picked up this book. Abi & Ryder are the sort of couple you can't help but root for. There's a lot to take in with this book, from the life threatening illness to the remote edges of the Australian outback. In the en... ...more

About the author

Jezz de Silva

Please don’t freak out. I’m just your average Aussie romance writer! :) My long suffering First Reader and I live in a tiny one wombat town in the hills outside Melbourne, Australia. And when I say one wombat town I really mean it. I see the little girl when walking Bear and Max, my plot and character consultants. Our little patch of heaven is overrun by a zoo of geriatric rescued animals who eat us out of house and home when not sleeping or guilting us into walks. And we wouldn’t have it any other way. When not tapping my fingers or banging my head on a keyboard creating happily ever afters, I love spending time with family and friends, cooking, EATING, gardening, renovating our castle, and teaching personal protection. ;)
