I enjoyed this book. Unlike the last book I read, where the sex was gratuitous and an excuse for a ridiculous story, this book is believable and the sex is woven in hot and seamlessly.

This is the first book I've read by this author. The book was given to me by LRP to review.

The book starts with a bang and keeps on going. Lacey and her daughter are caught in the midst of a hurricane that destroys their house and comes close to killing them as they manage to get under a mattress in a cast iron bath tub. It is as realistic a rendition as I'd ever think to read!

Considering I've ridden out several hurricanes in my day, this one hit home with the scare factor.

Lacey tries to hire an architect, but it is his son that shows up. A man younger than Lacey and you guessed it... the love interest.

Lacey's daughter has been facebooking her dad, unbeknownst to Lacey. He wants back in her life, never mind that he has not been part of their lives at all, except for financially, and had wanted her to get an abortion.

Well, you know true love wins out, but how it does and with whom is part of the story.

The rest of the story involves the dynamics of Clay with his father, and Lacey's friends with her and overcoming the town biddy's objections to her building a resort that will take business from the only hotel on the key, owned of course by the old bat.

As a summer read, it has all the elements you want.

Rating: ★★★☆☆
