This story never really came together. It's a forced marriage story - heroine agrees to marry businessman hero to save the family business. Her brother has a spendthrift wife and is siphoning money as well.

Sara Craven could write this plot in her sleep and I think she might have. There are many abrupt flashbacks and times the heroine just checks out from the present moment - it got weird after awhile.

It was obvious the hero was interested in the heroine from the beginning, but he did everything

What did I think?

Hero
Lost his balls somewhere in HPlandia and, with them, his ability to think logically.

Heroine
Owner of a traitorous body and martyr complex.

Romance
Milder than baby shampoo.

My frustration level, and subsequent rant
High, and very rant-y.

The thought that kept running through my head as I read this book was that Nick Destry was freaking hot. Like, jaw-dropping hot, drop-dead gorgeous kind of hot! :P He was an amazing hero for the book and I certainly loved reading about him.

Ok so this book was really a very nice book. I enjoyed reading it and I felt that the author carried off the emotions of the 2 characters perfectly. Even though there was none of Nick's POV, I could just see from everything he said and did exactly how much he

Not my cup of tea. The heroine married the hero to save a business. It was a marriage of convenience and then they basically avoided each other. Then BANG *HURRICANE* and all of a sudden they are all close again. Weirdness.

3.5*! Surprisingly I like this story very much! The story unfolded by way of flashbacks which was effectively done without making me confused or anxious/impatient.

The story started when Paige was in the Caribbeans on a well-deserved holiday, her first in 2 years (her last was her ill-fated honeymoon but more heartbreaking than relaxing!)

Her friend's husband owns the luxurious hotel so she was able to stay cheaply. We were told after only 7 weeks of marriage Paige and Nick had been separated sinc

Woman marries man to save the family business, and then avoids him. When fate and a hurricane throw them together on a tropical island, they start to develop a relationship. Surprisingly un-bad for this sort of thing.
