This book introduces us to Tasha, a true flower child, come what may girl; and, Andrew Jacob Powell, III, the most anal, structured, sad sack, hottie ever.
Tasha has just had a bad break up and her mother thinks a vacation away for a week is juts the thing to cheer her up.
Andrew has just mysteriously won a free trip to a vacation resort for all of his hard work. He reluctantly accepts and that is where his whole life's motto of self control and structure go out the window.

Romancing the Book
Review by JoAnne: This was a cute romance that had lots of laughter and conflict and even a few teary eyed moments. Andrew and Tasha don't set out to find love but they keep getting thrown together in some hard to believe ways. As they get to know each other and spend some time alone while in a resort in Jamaica they end up falling in love which is what neither one wanted. As one is able to make peace with it, the other isn't and runs away. Ultimately there is a happy ending but it took longer t ...more

Some people just need a good “thunk” to the head to put them on the right path. Luckily for Andrew, there’s Tasha. Luckily for Tasha, there’s Andrew. While they are, unfortunately, stereotypical of romance characters, they are quite fortunate in that their actions are governed by the twisting and turning of author Maddie James’ imagination.

The tropical location and bus strike provided the basis for the eccentric quirks of fate that le

Maddie James has written many books, I understand. This book is a pretty good example and is well written.

Tasha goes to a Jamaican island for a holiday her mother has paid for. Andrew does the same to the same island that his company has paid for. They meet. they are totally unsuited.

Pretty average tale, with ups and downs, and it all works out, just what you expect. Ms James does it very well and if you like romantic tales together with some loving you'll like this.

I really wanted to love this book, but it was just a little too trite for me. Usually a wildly different couple coming together is just what I love when I want a sweet little romance. This just didn't work for me. I was bored. I skimmed. I rarely skim. I like most of this author's book so I stuck with it. It just wasn't there for me.

Very quirky characters which were enough to make the story interesting. Of course very predictable, but that wasn't a detractor. Lots of funny situations that were unexpected, even a few painfully contrived. A good book to read at the beach or on a cold rainy day.

This book is funny; I just love two people who are so wrong for each other that they have to be right.

Shelves: chicklit-romance
This is an average romance, set in the west and in Jamaica. Opposites attract in this story. Slow to start, and quick to end. The female character is a little weak, while the strong business man doesn't stay strong for long.
Aug 21, 2012 Rae rated it really liked it
This is a story of opposites attract. It's refreshing that the conservative one is the man and the wild one is the woman. Funny, moving romance that even the most opposite people can fall in love.

A beach read....that you expect to be better than it is. It starts out good but quickly fizzles.
