Thirty Nights Synopsis:
 Thirty nights. Two hearts. One fate.
American Beauty, Book 1
After her parents’ tragic deaths, Elisa Snow wanted nothing more than to escape her past. Eighteen and alone, she fled her quaint English village and moved to the United States. A starving science student by day and an artist’s muse by night, Elisa has slowly built a new life. She never dreamed she would lose everything again.
She’s one week from graduation when her visa is unexpectedly denied. Given thirty days to leave the country, she must face the one thing she cannot survive again—saying goodbye and leaving her home. Yet within minutes of her world shattering, she meets a man with the power to piece it back together.
After finishing his tour of duty in Iraq, Aiden Hale traded battlefields for boardrooms, becoming one of the most successful venture capitalists in the nation. But all his wealth can’t buy him reprieve from the horrific memories of war. The only thing that gives him peace is a painting of Elisa.
Drawn together by their invisible wounds, they begin a passionate affair as they race against the clock to defy their pasts—and fight for their future.
Earlier versions of this book were posted on the author’s blog under the titles of The Master’s Muse and 30 Nights of Snow, using the pen name Ani Surnois, and has since been extensively edited.
Review:

Elisa Snow has suffered the worst tragedies of all, she lost both her parents. She is a young eighteen year old in a small town. She leaves her home to go to the US and start a new life. Her life takes a nose dive unexpectedly and her immigration status comes into play. 

Aiden Hale is a complicated man he has his issues as well as Elisa. When he encounters a painting of Elisa he is enthralled by her. He get the needs that he need stop know her and her life. Can he let go of the past and let go of his demons to finally open up and be happy?

This was kind of a love hate book for me because of all the mixed signals he was giving. For most of this book I was overly frustrated with him, I wanted to grab him from his lapels and yell at him to stop playing games. There were also parts that brought the feels out of me. I loved how they are with one another the love that they share it was beautiful to read about.
