William Wesley Barrington, IV is twenty-six and has never been allowed to make any decisions on his own.

This is an awakening in a sense so he...more
There is a sense of innocence in this story, when the rich guy go "undercover" as regular guy, waitressing at the Fantasies Resort Hawaii and found himself as a roommate with the gorgeous surfer.

I really enjoyed this story. The characters were great together and I loved that they developed a friendship first which then led to a solid relationship.

By day, I am a middle school teacher. I spend much of my time grading papers, filling out paperwork, and trying to get 6th- and 7th- graders to read.

When I am not at work, I can generally be found at the computer, dreaming up stories about men falling in love. When I have spare time (which is unfortunately not too often anymore!) I read romance of all kinds. Occasionally I pretend to do housework,...more
