Fans of Bared to you, Fifty Shades and First Thing I See will love this new book!
My honeymoon was almost everything I dreamed it would be, a tropical paradise, turquoise water, romantic walks on the beach, and loads and loads of mind shattering sex. The only thing missing was the groom.
After seven years of coasting through a relationship with Michael, my senses were numb. A week of passion with a stranger was just what I needed to clear my head and take back control of my life. But how do you move on when the man that was only supposed to be a fling somehow seeps into your soul and steals your heart?
Talk about intensity!!! Holy smokes! Total panty soaker! I can pretty much feel the intensity and chemistry between Sydney and Jack as I write this review. Vi Keeland does a fantastic job captivating me from the beginning of the book. The way she describes the scenery, the emotions, the connections, I felt like I was a part of the story because I was feeling what the characters were feeling. When Sydney gets goosebumps when Jacks talks to her, I got those same goosebumps!
Sydney had her life planned out; she was going to marry her high school sweetheart, Michael. She gave up on her dreams, and she lost a part of herself being with him. At first, she thought marrying him was the next stop in their relationship. When she figured out the marriage wasn’t for her, she called off the wedding; not knowing Michael had already broken her trust in a big way.
Her honeymoon was paid for, so she took her best friend, Sienna, with her to Hawaii for the week. Sienna insists a fling is what she needs to get over Michael. At the bar, Jack’s voice sends shivers up her spine before she can turn around to see his face. Jack, is a very HOT, SEXY, very wealthy, alpha male, businessman who would like nothing more than to make her happy. You can instantly feel the connection that Jack and Sydney have for each other, and it definitely goes beyond sexual attraction. They are looking into each other’s souls at that very moment.
They definitely don’t have a normal type of fling. To avoid getting too personal, they use the ten question rule, where they have ten questions to ask each other during their stay, so they must use their questions wisely. When they are not having hot, steamy sex (which seems to be all the time since they can’t keep their hands off each other) Jack is showing her around the island, in the most romantic ways possible (helicopter ride, anyone?).
Spending time with Jack makes Sydney realize that she never had any of this excitement when she was with Michael. She’s never felt this way before and even though this was supposed to be just a fling, she’s falling hard and fast. Jack is different with her. He’s romantic, kind, caring, sweet, and protective. She’s scared, doesn’t know what to do, and doesn’t know what to make of this situation. Does he feel the same way? What will happen when their time is over? Just thinking of their departure makes her sad.
Settled back down in New York, Sydney is working on her dreams of singing again in one of New York’s top hotels. Sometime later she is reunited with a very angry Jack. But once alone, the connection they once had was never lost as they pick up right where they left off. As the relationship progresses, so do their feelings for one another. Their sexual desire for one another just get more and more intense as they get to know one another. Yes, Sydney was engaged to be married before, but she has not ever felt this way about a man before and it scares her. The same goes for Jack. He has been with 500-1000 women and not one of them has meant as much as Sydney does to him. He doesn’t quite know how a relationship works. Sydney’s insecurities from her past come back to haunt her when she finds out a part of Jack’s life that he’s been keeping from her.
Will Sydney be able to overcome her insecurities to secure a future with Jack? Or will she run the first chance she gets? Will Jack be able to stay fully committed to Sydney with so much temptation in his way? Will they be able to put their past aside to make a future together?
I absolutely loved this book! I completely fell in love with Sydney in Jack and believe me, Jack will definitely make you swoon! Sienna will have you laughing your socks off because she is just that friend that will tell you like it is! Vi did a great job! However, I was pretty upset that it ended with a big time cliffhanger because I stayed up really late reading this book!!! I want more Sydney and Jack! I can’t wait for the next book to come out! Well done Vi!
I received an ARC by the author for my honest review.
