THE OUTBACK AFFAIR
After her fiancé, Tom, left her for another woman, landscape painter Natasha drowned herself in her work. And, with the help of her father’s gallery, she became known for her paintings of Ayers Rock. A year and a half later, Tom reappears, apparently a changed man, but Natasha can’t forgive Tom for what he did. As Natasha sets out on a new expedition to paint the landscape of Kakadu National Park, she is paired with Tom as her tour guide. Will Tom ever get the chance to explain what happened a year and a half ago? Or will this trip only drive them further apart?

- 3.5 a lie to protect 4
- JAB 02/21/2019
The hero thought he was protecting the heroine but he was really setting himself up for a hard run in winning back her love. In beginning, the hero and heroine were a couple who got engaged. Then out of nowhere, the hero tells the heroine over the phone that he's breaking up because he's fallen for another woman. The heroine has no idea that the whole thing is a lie because the hero ended up in the hospital from his bad eating, stress of failing investments, and empty savings in order to get that dream they were fighting for. It was also when he found out his father on the man's deathbed and couldn't even make it to the funeral.The thought of looking and being poor in front of the heroine, frightened the hero so much that he conjured up a lie about being in love with another woman in order to save the heroine. They meet a year and half later when the hero comes for the heroine to apologize but she won't even see him till her father convinces her it's the best way to move forward. He does shock the heroine with his slimmed down body. She ends up having him as her guide through the outback, much to her horror but discovers he's made a lot of different changes in his life. For example, his aversion of junk food and how he's single. She learns the source comes from his estranged father who died last year as well as the number of family members who died before then. The hero is pretty patient with the heroine who's prickly around him and one night blows up at him for the pain he caused her by breaking up. It takes two frightening situations involving a water buffalo and crocodile for the hero to see the heroine still loves him and takes courage to open up. He does say that he wanted to tell her when they were reunited but her anger showed him it wouldn't be enough. So, he came on this trip to show how much he cared for the heroine and if she still loved him too. She does forgive later that night. They do have a couple of small bumps on the road but the heroine and the hero make their dream of having a farm and family come true. It was a nice romance.
