This was a very good suspense romance. The heroine was quite likable, she was strong and smart but also nice. The hero was interesting, he was smitten with the heroine very quickly. The background idea of the reality series was the weakest part of the story, a series like Survivor goes to way more effort to assure the safety of the contestants.

I really enjoyed this book, it was great especially the heroine who was so kick-ass, a former Olympian diver, she had spent four years in college studying to be an accountant, when her dreamer father got into trouble and needed money and she joined a reality show to make money, hating it since she never liked the camera.

This was part of a blogger bundle and it was fantastic! I loved the premise and the strength of the heroine. I loved the way the hero loves how powerful she is. This is a book that I wish was longer and that's the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars.
A quick read for me. I've enjoyed the show Survivor in the past and it was interesting to read a story based on that concept. The hero was a bit of a jerk at times but overall I enjoyed it.

Four-and-a-half years ago, Talia Mooney was a diver set to win Olympic gold. When she broke fingers on her right hand during her first dive, however, the gold-and her father's dreams-came to an end. Although Talia still took home the silver medal, for her, diving for competition's sake was over. Now she could go back to doing what she loved best-swimming, diving, and being in the water for no other reason than because she loved it.

Now, though, there are problems in Mooney-land. Her father, Coli

It all started with Shanna and Star Wars. An odd combination, I know, but what people don't appreciate about Star Wars is the deep romantic element between two of the lead characters. I wasn't seven years-old when I was able to clearly spot that Han and Leia were supposed to be a couple.

Sure most of my friends, who at the time weren't nearly as mature as I was – after all some of them were still s
