Synopsis: ONE KISS CAN LAST FOREVER
Becca Thorpe has uprooted her life and escaped to the beach. Now’s her chance to get away from city living, throw caution to the ocean winds, and live in the moment. Especially if the moment includes the deliciously sexy surfer she meets shortly after arriving in Lucky Harbor. Something about the dark intensity of Sam’s eyes and the thrill she gets at his touch convinces her to stay awhile.
Boatbuilder and investment genius Sam Brody is a self-made man who knows how dangerous it can be to mix business and pleasure. But he can’t resist offering Becca a job just to hear her laugh and have her near. Yet when her brother comes to town asking for help, will he tempt her back to her glamorous life in the city? Or do Sam and little Lucky Harbor have a chance to win Becca’s heart?
Personal Thoughts: I haven’t read all of the books in this series but I will after reading this book. It is so full of great characters, interesting plot line and it just makes you want to keep reading until the end. It was a great read overall and it makes me want to read the rest of the series.
The story takes us to Becca who arrives in Lucky Harbor meant as a pit stop until she finds herself after dealing with her past. What she doesn’t expect is the kindness and the attraction to her newfound boss Sam. Although he shows an intimidating side, inside he is soft as a teddy bear and means no harm. Through a variety of daily interactions things start to get serious between Becca and Sam and that is where the story really takes off.
The author does a great job with the characterizations of the two of them as well as Sam’s partners and the rest of the Lucky Harbor characters. It makes you want to know everyone’s story and where they will end up. Great read and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a light, funny and quick read.
