EXCERPTS (Please choose only ONE to use with your post):
She was staring at a large poster of the ship as she was walking when without warning, she crashed head on into something, no someone. During her stumble backwards, her purse and portfolio went flying, scattering her resume, notes, and other papers everywhere. A strong arm reached around her waist, steadying her.
“Oh, I’m so sorry…” Lily said as she looked up into the most beautiful piercing blue eyes she had ever seen. They were the color of a clear sparkling ocean. The arm around her waist was firm and muscular, radiating heat. She was so close to him, she could smell the spicy scent of his aftershave, and her stomach tightened with embarrassment or lust, she couldn’t tell which. She was a bit dizzy from the sudden rush of sensory input. Trying in vain to regain her composure, she tried to speak but couldn’t find her voice. Heat rose in her face, and her cheeks were no doubt bright red as they often were when she was embarrassed like she was at this moment.
“No, it’s my fault.” His voice was deep and very sexy. “I wasn’t looking where I was going. Here, let me help you pick up your papers.” He loosened his grip on her waist, and when she was standing upright again, he released her. As the tall stranger bent down and gathered her things, Lily stared, dumbfounded. This man was gorgeous and wearing some kind of naval uniform. He had short blond hair. What would it be like to run her hands through it? Could the strands be as silky soft as she imagined? She shook her head and tried to focus.
This book is about Lily and Nick. Lily is still getting over her divorce from six months ago, and looking for a complete change. So Lily goes to apply for a job as a bouquet manager on a cruise ship. She runs into very handsome Nick and when he asks her to dinner, she finds herself agreeing, which is very unlike herself. Nick, is a ladies’ man who is used to one night stands. He has promised his father to straighten up his act, and he is trying, but he feels Lily is worth pursuing, even though she is very different from the normal women he is attracted to. Lily agrees to spend the night with Nick, despite her misgivings, but when she awakes in the middle of the night she feels it was a huge mistake. Now can Nick win her back over with everything he has going on in his family? Will Lily get over her divorce enough to trust again, and is Nick worthy of that trust? Read and see.
This book is great. WARNING: The book has sexual situations in the book. This is for mature readers. The characters seem to come alive very quickly. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a second time romance. This is also a great story for anyone who loves their bad boy makes good.
I’m giving this book 5 hearts
