CAN FUN IN THE SUN TURN INTO LASTING LOVE?
Spring break in Key West with my besties was supposed to be casual fun. But I never expected to meet James Hunt. Sex and frolic? Yes! A relationship? No. But his hot blue eyes and confident manner drew me in. And when he let me see the man behind the mask, I fell hard, foolishly believing there could be a future for us. Of course I never considered our relationship might be based on lies...or that his betrayal could rock my foundation and make me question everything I believed in...
OR WILL A LIFE BUILT ON LIES RUIN EVERYTHING?
The moment I saw Quinn I knew I had to have her. She hooked me with her cool eyes and don’t touch me attitude. I had it all, money, social status, and looks. I could get any girl I wanted...until her. When my friends challenged me with a bet to get her into bed by the end of the week, I couldn’t pass it up. But sex wasn’t supposed to turn into love. She wasn’t supposed to change me, push me, and make me want more for myself. She wasn’t supposed to wreck me in all ways. And now, if I can’t turn my lies into truth, I just might lose her forever...
~*~ My Review~*~
I loved this book, I very much enjoyed getting to know James and Quinn, and I wanted to step into their world of sun and water and love. I have read many New Adult novels then have the theme of a bet that is made at the beginning and then comes to light later causing huge problems, however this story line was brilliant. I loved how the bet was resolved and how each character reacted. Instead of reacting in a more damaging way and causing hurt and months of distrust, the characters did something even better. Sometimes the book tends to feel juvenile, this one did not! It was excellent. James was a different kind of male in which he was tortured in a emotional way and it made what happens between them feel even deeper... I am hoping beyond all hope for more, and I really want to know what will happen with Cassie and her mystery guy and Mac and Austin. This book made spring break even more fun, even with the intense feelings, I want to head to Florida now! I give this book 5 huge sunny and sandy stars!
