Carla Hernandez has escaped from her life in Miami, and her high profile break-up with her fiance, to visit her Great Aunt Lola in Cuba. She needed time to lick her wounds and decompress in peace. She also has ideas of sprucing up Lola's old grand home, so that when she rents to boarders, she can charge more money. She has no idea she'll meet and take an instant dislike of, and yet attraction to, her Tia's favorite boarder, Jonah Kane.
Jonah is big man. He's also a semi-famous photojournalist, and he's having a little R&R time in Cuba after a scary trip to Syria for a job. He loves staying at Lola's place, as she's kind of adopted him as her own. With no family left of his own, he enjoys visiting her, and feels a bit responsible for her. So, when her great niece shows up, and he can tell she's a spoiled rotten princess, he's worried about her true motives where Lola and her home are concerned. He's also wildly attracted to her, but he doesn't plan to do anything about it. Best laid plans...
Jonah and Carla's chemistry was off the charts, and the love/hate, push/pull dynamic they had was so much fun to see. They really rubbed each other the wrong way at first, yet they still couldn't fight their attraction. I loved their banter, and their antagonism toward each other, especially once they both realized it wasn't going to stop them from getting together. They both have a lot of personal issues to overcome before they can even attempt a relationship. Also, neither of them truly planned to see each other after their liaison, but a little positive test changes everything.
Even with the baby coming, they both really have a lot to deal with, and being together just doesn't seem feasible, no matter how they might want it. Carla is the baby of her family, and she's always felt like a disappointment to her parents. Jonah has a painful past in regards to feeling he's letting people close to him down. They both had to come to terms with their strengths and weaknesses to make their situation work for them. I really appreciated their struggle. I also loved seeing the rest of Carla's family again, as they are all highly entertaining. Her Aunt Lola was a bawdy delight, and Jonah's best friend Charlie was quite the character too. Charlie will be the hero in book 4, so I'm definitely looking forward to that!
I truly enjoyed this book, and this couple. Jonah was so sensitive, and carefully cognizant of his size and the care he needed to take with the petite Carla. She was attracted to his strength, and his raw sexuality, as he was so different from her normal type. I really loved their evolution together, and I enjoyed their story so much. I'm thought this would be the end of the series, so I'm excited to see there will be a book 4, and I will definitely be reading it.
I liked this book a lot and I liked the plot a lot. This dragged some at times but got through it. This is a short easy enjoyable read. I loved Carla’s Aunt Lola what a woman. I loved how Jonah was protective of Lola but also how he was gentle with Carla so he wouldn’t hurt her as he was a big man. I liked Jonah’s friend Charlie also. I really liked how it showed carla and Jonah overcome obstacles to try to make it work for them. I loved seeing Carla and Jonah’s relationship unfold. I loved Carla’s crazy family and they were crazy. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I recommend.
