Alexandra Warren has grown into an excellent writer and eloquent storyteller. I am a sucker for older folks and little kids. This story had a little kid who stole my heart. This story added to my growing list of books to love and read again and again.
Nova Grant was an elementary school teacher on break for the summer. Her best friend invited her to spend the summer at her families beach home in Miami. Kaylin’s husband Lamar invited his best friend and son to stay for the summer as well… So you know what that means- the two would end up together right? But what you don’t know is in between the meeting on the plane, the realization at baggage claim, and the eventual trip to the home, it was discovered the two friends were friends with one another’s best friend. Did you get that? Well now… Here’s the good part. Guy was also a school teacher on summer break… And the cute kid we met on the plane, well, cuddly lil man stole Nova’s whole heart completely. A little history- Lamar and Kaylin were in a previous story and this time around they made a few cameo appearances while adding to their own story. Whether planned or imagined, In this story, it appeared the two conspired to get Guy and Nova in Miami to make a love connection. Initially, Nova wasn’t having it. But who could resist a sweet face like Jaxson who happened to have a hot daddy. Guy was a laid back, flirty fella who made it difficult for Nova to turn him away. Jaxson had Nova eating out of his little hands and she eventually succumbed to his father’s passionate advances. At the end of the summer- could they just have their love connection only for the summer. The hot sex between Guy and Nova should certainly have been a resounding yes! But romance authors cause readers to suffer with end of story drama to have us squirming in our seats. I was so in my feeling hoping that things would all come out in the wash… I’ll just say- Whew! This was a wonderful story. And no matter what Alexandra says, Jaxson is named after this reviewer. I’m claiming it. She changed the spelling to be fancy… Overall, I loved this story. It was comical, emotional, sensual, and the story was well done. 5 Stars for my namesake baby boy’s story.
