(I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this title.)
I know that a book is super good when I have to force myself to stop reading so that I can write notes. Even when I give myself an ultimatum, I still have a difficult time putting the book down. But if I don't, I end up with what I did this time. I had one note. It said "5". Well that's not one bit helpful, right? Luckily, loving a book so much means that I don't forget much about it but I do have a problem with spilling the beans on stuff that needs to stay secret until you get to that part of the book. So I'm going to try to not give any spoilers. I'll be as vague as possible ... hopefully.
Carrie's fiance is a cheater and I wish it could go without saying but he's a massive d-bag. So Carrie decides to chunk him a deuce and go on her honeymoon alone because she's built up this massive fantasy which is almost too unrealistic to happen. But when she gets to Hawaii, her douchecanoe ex is there with his side chick. And this is when the excitement starts. Carrie is obviously broken down and despite that, you can just sense how tough this lady really is. To have the cojones to go on a honeymoon (more specifically: a very romantic, lovey dovey, honeymoon) alone is awesome.
It's all good until her big brother's (very dashing and protective) best friend, Blake, decides to insert himself into the situation and pretend to be Carrie's newest love interest. You guessed it, it's all to make the a-hole ex regret ever cheating on Carrie. You might have also guessed that two people on a romantic island getaway, pretending to be in love might lead to something. I won't say if it does ... but this IS a romance novel ...
The characters were great, I loved Carrie from the very beginning and Blake ... who wouldn't love this perfectly created fictional creature. The sparks flew between these two and it will make you blow through the pages. The story is exciting from the beginning to end and there's never a dull moment. Definitely a book I'll be reading again ... probably this summer as I sit by the pool and try to block out the sounds of our boys beating each other with pool noodles and squealing because SOMEHOW, water got in their eyes. In the pool. Which is weird. Anyway ... great book, great author and wonderful reading experience!
* I received this novel in exchange for an honest review *
This was a fun read.
We have Carrie and Blake, they’ve known each other for years, but nothing ever happened. Then Carrie is left at the altar and he encourages her to go into the honeymoon anyway. And because he promised her brother to take care of her, Blake goes to the honeymoon as well. All that is fine and dandy, until she sees her ex with his new girlfriend, so she starts faking a new relationship with Blake to show her ex she’s fine.
Anyway, obviously things turn to more, because aside from some sexy times, there’s a lot of time to just talk, and that’s when they start to really get to know each other.
The story was fun with some sexy and sweet times. I liked Carrie, but I disliked how she changed when she was in front of her ex (who was a HUGE jerk, btw). She could be super kickass, so it sucked that she changed because of him, but I was glad when she finally saw that too. You shouldn’t have to change your personality for anyone, least of all that idiot.
Blake had his own issues, which in his mind, prevented him from starting something real with anyone, even though it was plain clear things with Carrie were completely different. I disliked his stubbornness to hold on to his hungups. Yeah, they sucked, but they weren’t THAT bad, and it was preventing him to have something awesome.
Together they were fun and funny, and I just couldn’t wait for them to realize they were worth much more than what they had been getting in the past.
All in all, there were ups and downs, sexy and sweet times, good and bad guys, and just a little bit of everything to keep you entertained. :-) Looking forward to reading more in this series.
