Skye Sorenson has known Brooks Winslow since she was ten years old. Yea maybe she had a crush on him. But she knew she never stood a chance. Men like him didn't go for women like her. She was happy being a mechanic in her fathers marina. So being friends with him was all she expected. Brooks has never really noticed Skye was a female. She was a great friend, She never wanted more from him. She didn't go after him for his money or his looks. Besides she had a boyfriend. She when Brooks sister sets him up in a bachelor auction. He wants Skye to bid on him and spend the week sailing. That way he knows he is safe from money hungry women and any romantic overtures. When Skye walks into the auction dressed up he starts thinking maybe he made a mistake. That's not the Skye he knows.
Loved Skye. She is open, a wonderful friend. She has kept her crush under wraps for pretty much the twenty years she has known Brooks. Brooks was great, loved his family. He always thought he was going to die young like his father and it made him stay clear of romance. So he is a little behind on the dating scene. The storyline takes you on a passionate journey of two people that started out as friends and discover through their love of sailing that they can be so much more. There are some obstacles in the way, through they didn't always deal with them the right way. They kept moving forward. But like all of Katy's books, she draws you in and gives you a few hours escape into a world of passion and romance. And what better place to be then on a sailboat with the wind blowing your hair and a hot sexy man by your side.
The heroine is the daughter of a local Marina owner. She works on the boats for her father. The wife/mother leaves them for the high life of Hollywood. However, she doesn't make it big and winds up in a totally different profession. One that is an embarrassment to the heroine. She is best friends with the hero on a rather easy going level.
He needs favor and she is the only person he knows that can help him. It turns out to change his life as well as hers. This was a fun read with a little bit of hiding secrets, falling in love, and of course a HEA. It was a good, fun read and I enjoyed it and definitely recommend it.
I was not paid for this review. I am not an author. I am a reader and this is my opinion. Nothing more, nothing less.
This is Brooks and Skye’s story. Brooks is the eldest brother of the Winslow clan and the father figure to all his younger siblings. This story begins with him being strong-armed by his sister Jessica into “volunteering” his for a bachelor auction. Being an ex-Olympian, Brooks is the big seller. Not one who likes being set up, he enlists his friend Skye’s help to rig the auction. Convincing her to bid on him so he doesn’t have to spend a week with someone he either doesn’t like or doesn’t know. Skye Sorenson is a sweet tomboy with mad boat mechanic skills. For many years Brooks saw her as a friend and never more than that until she shows up at the auction. Let’s just say Miss Sorenson cleans up well.
Both Brooks and Skye floated through life lonely. The only close relationships they had were with their families. It was a surprise they were able to maintain their friendship. Seeing them sentence themselves in their self-imposed prisons frustrated me. I was eager to see them set themselves free and stop fighting what was going on between them. But even stubborn people have their limits. When they finally set themselves free and gave into what was going on between them, I was a happy girl.
I loved all the little play on words used in this book; how one word can hold so many different meanings. It brought something extra to the story. It made it more beautiful. Bidding on Brooks is one of those stories that make you sigh with happiness and contentment at the end. A true HEA.
