Ella James does a wonderful job of bringing her readers into the sheltered, privileged, but loveless world of Margo Ford. Readers are immediately struck by her loss, sorrow, insecurity, and her need for an emotional port in the turbulent storm that is her life.
When she meets Logan, the handsome young pilot that is hired to take her to her "mother's" island; she is immediately swept away on a tide of desire that sets her adrift in very unfamiliar waters.

This book is a wonderful example of all of the things that a novella should be. It is well-written and the characters are well defined, so that the reader doesn't have to spend time trying to figure out who is doing what and why. There is a definite focus on Logan and Margo's relationship without sacrificing the importance of other players to the drama as a whole and individuals within the work are written in such a way that they are instantly relateable to readers.

This is a joy to read and will bring a smile to the heart of anyone who still believes in true love, chemistry, white knights, princesses, and following one's own star.
