What I liked

Imo is a romantic at heart, so I wondered why she sported a black eye. She displays an open distrust of the men she meets when she lands in Greece, alone. She’s hiding something, which turned out to be more spectacular than I dreamed! Will comes on the scene and comedy erupts amid canceled reservations, emotional pain, and sexual tension. Also targeted by handsome Stephan, I found myself rooting for Will. Too bad Will tried hard NOT to want her. The author portrays two people coming to terms with life’s mistakes. Thrown in to the mix is intrigue and mystery while the author presents real characters: complete with faults. The sex scenes were tasteful, hot, and well spaced. All-in-all I enjoyed each chapter more and more as I read, and learned more about sailing than I ever knew.

Book Blurb

Take a gorgeous man and a sexy woman. Add a sprinkling of Greek sunshine, a splash of blue sea. A perfect recipe for love. Except the man is nursing a broken heart and the woman is nursing a black eye.

Imo needs something to help her forget the man she’s left in London. When she throws open the shutters of her villa to see a Greek god reclining in all his naked glory, how can she resist?

Working as a sailing instructor in Greece is just what Will needs to forget the woman he can no longer have. Not easy when she’s rarely out of his thoughts. When he’s attacked by a minx wearing red underwear, he wonders if he’s found the perfect way to distract himself.

Finding out if Imo’s the right one could be just the cure Will needs…so long as it doesn’t get him killed. With Imo’s past in hot pursuit—it might.
