"The cat-and-mouse games Alicia and Jack play with each other nicely complement this lovely and heartwarming romance, infusing it with a healthy dose of red-hot sensuality."

In Chatham, Massachusetts, Keith Murphy worries about his older brother Jack who has just completed his obligation to the Navy. Since returning from Bahrain Jack is very taciturn and refuses to return to his VP position at the family owned Murphy Resorts. Jack even scowled at the party celebrating his sibling Ryan's engagement bash on the Cape. Keith knows his sibling does not have PTSD, but instead has a female woe whose name is Alicia LeBlanc.

Keith has a plan as he has been providing environmental consulting services to Alicia who hopes to open up a B&B in Bar Harbor, Maine. He has Alicia on his boat waiting to meet with him. Instead Keith swaps boats with Jack. As Jack and Alicia see each other for the first time in years, their spark remains equatorial hot. He ran from love once before and she fears he will break her heart again. This time he runs towards love, but must persuade her he will never run away from her again.

This is an engaging second chance at love contemporary romance. The lead couple is a fine duet as he has plenty to make up for in the trust department, but has the edge of believing she loves him. With a strong New England backdrop and a warm caring family for support, fans will enjoy this at sea Wrong Bed Again and Again tale and look forward to Keith sailing Jack's boat to Charleston.

Loved the premise of the story and the characters were amazing. I spent the whole book wishing I knew them in person, yet feeling like I knew them already. Joanne Rock paints such wonderfully flawed people they jump right off the page. The story was good and I loved the chemistry. I can't wait to read Riding the Storm (Harlequin Blaze) and find out what happens with his brother on the other boat! Even greater news, there are more Murphy Brother's books coming! One Man Rush (Harlequin Blaze) and Her Man Advantage (Harlequin Blaze)!!!

Making a Splash by Joanne Rock
In this Murphy family series, Jack is back from his Navy military service and he has been thrown together with the woman he left 5 years ago, just walked out on her and joined up.
She has had some dates with others but nothing that lasted. She wants a B&B in Bar Harbor, Maine-to get away from all the family. They've been nice to her over the years including her in
with other family activities. She also plans to survive by running her water sports business. She had wanted Keith's input on the B&B but he though Jack could do with a vacation by taking the yacht up to Maine while he takes the sailboat down south to try to sell it.
Love the family activities: the men sports and how they joke around with one another.
Love the water travels and it does sound like a trip I'd like to take someday.
Alicia LeBlanc grew up next door to the Murphys and was romantically involved with Jack before he joined up with the Navy.
They are becoming sexually involved on the trip up north. She just wanted a second opinion not a love affair.
She just wants to get on with her life. He offered to loan her the money for her dreams.
He finally opens up to her and explains why he joined the military...
He was going overseas and visiting influential people while disguising it for company business of global properties. Now that he's back his dad is trying to persuade him to work with the family resort business again.
They make a deal on their journey that the other has to answer all the questions posed to them. He's not told her his plans for all the bars he's been buying up and she's not telling him why she wants to buy the B&B 3 states away. Winner takes all.

Love the books that have the family and brothers involved - always more fun and mischief not to mention the sexual tension between the characters. could have been a lot better - was a little too predictable and a little to blah blah for me but good for an easy read kinda day - like you have an hour to sit out in the sun, light reading!

I thought it was a cute story. I feel like it ended a little abruptly, like it was cut off. But overall a decent read.
