Synopsis

Attorney Michaela Harris is on her honeymoon—Alone. After being jilted at the altar, she takes off to Maui, only to lose her luggage and be stranded without a hotel room, thanks to her ex-fiancé canceling the reservation. The sympathetic staff at the Palekaiko Beach Resort look the other way when Michaela makes a deal to stay in a room that’s being renovated until a better one is available. She hits the surf to forget about her problems, but when she encounters a shark, she wonders if things will ever get better.

Billionaire Marcus Kincaide is about to lose his resort. No renovations will turn this around, not with his arch enemy out to destroy him. Marcus has got to keep his head in the game, but the mysterious and pretty wahine in the teeny bikini he rescued from a shark is filling his mind with desires that demand his attention. He figures a hot, intense and short affair is in order so he can get back to the business of saving his livelihood. What he didn’t figure was falling for her and giving his enemy just what he needs to take him down.

My Review:  

This is another of those books with that wonderful blue on the cover that always catches my eye. Covers like that just have to be read! I’m so glad that Ms. Schmidt agreed to let me read it. It was wonderful, too.


The book starts out with Michaela, our heroine, getting jilted at the altar. The groom is two hours late and not answering his phone. They’ve already checked the hospitals.


Well, Gerald, the groom, is a totally nasty one. I won’t go into all the details because that would mean spoilers. Just trust me, he’s nasty start to finish. Totally oblivious, too.


Michaela’s a lawyer and doesn’t really act much like a lawyer other than one time. I think maybe she could have been more helpful to Marcus and Amelia with the resort and their problems. But I’m not the author, I’m just the reviewer.


But, Michaela and Marcus (her knight in shining armor!) are really fun once they get going! Life’s given Michaela the short straw, but she’s making the best of it in a big way. Marcus can’t concentrate because she’s wandering around in her tiny white bikini. And there are times I just wanted to slap Marcus, the Kahuna.


They go surfing and have a great time. She goes snorkeling, too. They have shark scares a couple of times. There’s a bit of violence, but not much. There’s sex, and it’s hot. The writing is really good. Overall, this is a great book to take to the beach or out by the pool or wherever you may be reading this summer. It’s a really fun read.
