This was a nice, quick read - in a ho-hum kind of way, I'm afraid. Finn and Sunny were likable and had good chemistry, but something was missing. I can't put my finger on it, but I didn't fully connect with them. They thought too much and that didn't help the story flow along, if that makes sense. Plus, the secondary romance between one of Sunny's parents' retired employee and a regular guest of their inn was distracting. It was sweet, but it added nothing to the story - especially because the t ...more

I think this is my favorite Harlequin couple ever! I laughed so hard during the delivery scene. Paraphrasing: "Finn, I'm gonna gut you like a fish!" I had tears from laughing and from the emotion of what was happening with Finn and Sunny. Love this book!

The story line itself was fine, albeit rather predictable, as most romance stories are. My biggest criticism with the book is that it started off painstakingly slow. The author has a terrible habit of rambling on and on for pages at a time about anything she can think of - and she does this in the middle of conversations between the characters so that when someone finally speaks again, you have to backtrack a few pages to remind yourself what they were even talking about.

Shelves: military
very much a reunion story and a story of two people opening their hearts and eytes to the possibilities and what they have always wanted. Also deals with some of the realities of a military lifestyle and coping when circumstances in life find you in a place you never really thought you would be

Not as great as I expected, it was okay.
But my most favorite part was when Finn made a confession when he felt like loosing the ground to stand for when his parents gone suddenly because of the accident. Broke my heart so hard that I can't help myself not to cry. :')

What a deceptive name for a snoozer of a book.
Spoiler Whore says calm your tits people, it's just a book
Short, sweet and loved it! I got emotional in this book especially at the end. Good to see long lost love coming back together again.

I always love a book by Rhonda Nelson. There hero is hot, sexy, and irresistible and the heroine spunky. Add to that a beach location to take me away from the cold of January and it was heaven.

The secondary couple and the dog just didn't add to the story.
The dog farts constantly. I'm a dog lover, but this doesn't strike me as funny, just annoying.

As I was reading, I thought "What a fun, predictable read," then I was completely blown away by the ending. I even cried!!
