Melanie is an author who has recently her job, to focus on her next book she rents a house from her friend Leah. A few days after she gets there she takes a much needed break and heads out to the beach, when she comes back she is sunburned and decides to take a nap on the couch, naked.

Shane just so happens to walk in on her while she is sleeping on the couch and he is excited to know that he was right about who was renting the house and he is pleasantly surprised to find her naked and takes this as a sign.

When Melanie wakes, she is a little fuzzy and thinks she is dreaming up the hot man sitting in front of her! What follows is steamy hot sex.

When Melanie’s brain starts to put together the puzzle, she is not happy to find out that the most intense orgasm’s of her life were just given to her by her high school enemy Shane.

Shane has secretly had feelings for Melanie since they were in school and he decides to take advantage of the fact there is a hurricane heading their way.

What follows is 2 people who seemingly hated each other embarking on a journey through some key moments from their past that will either bind them or separate them.

This was such a beautiful story! Shane and Melanie were so amazing together, the story was believable and I could actually picture them in my mind as though I knew them.

**I was given an arc in exchange for an honest review**

Loved this super sweet, light, sexy romance! A little bit of humor, a little bit of suspense, a lot of steam and an absolutely wonderful hero!

-Full length, Standalone
-HEA & Epilogue
-Dual POVs
-Switches between past (H&h as kids/teens) and present
-No OW/OM drama or cheating

Would love to read a book about Leah too!

I like romance stories where the hero is crazy about the hero right away and becomes possessive & protective of her.
That occurred in this story. Shane had a crush on Melanie as a child/teenager and showed it in the way kids do, gave her trouble to get her attention. She gave it back to him. He gets jealous when other boys pay attention to her and reacts in a mean ways. They kiss at high school graduation but it never goes any further. They end up going to separate colleges. While in their late twenties they see each other again at Shane's beach house. Sparks fly and hot sexy times result. I loved that Shane never got over Melanie and when he sees her again all of those things rush back. She too was attracted to him and that has not changed either. I loved that Shane was willing to put himself out there and admit that he had feelings for her and wanted their night of a passion to be something more. I am tired of reading about a hero that has to overcome a phobia about making commitment to a heroine.

I liked that this is a KU book. I also liked that the story was told from both of their point of views. I always like hearing from the hero and heroine. The hero's sister and the heroine's friend's point of view was given. It was brief and I felt unnecessary to the story.

There were just a few things that I wish were different about the story. For one, I had to suspend disbelief a few times. For example, Melanie did not recognize Shane when she sees him again, first in a picture and then in person. The last time they saw each other was when they graduated from high school and were up close and personal. Shane's appearance did not change much and therefore there is no reason that she would not recognize him. He recognize her right away.

Loved it! The writing is excellent and the story line flows well. This is sorta a second chance romance between Shane the Pain and Melanie aka Felony. Melanie rents a beach cottage from a coworker to get away and work on her novel, she is an Author. Her friends stepbrother, who knows she is there goes to the cottage to help prepare it for a hurricane that is on its way but really wants to see his high school crush. Melanie doesn't recognize him when he arrives at first as Shane the Pain from high school, only has Leahs stepbrother. As the hurricane bears down they let their attraction to each other work out all their past differences. The story has a few flash backs to their history going to school with each other. Typical boy is mean to girl because he is crushing on her and she is mean back but they both thought each other was hot back then and nothing much has changed in that department. He has to return home for work after the storm, giving her time to "miss him". Leah push's that along and she goes to visit him a week later and he asks her to stay. The story has a nice epilogue set 21 months into the future for their HEA

Light, funny and sexy read. Shane and Melanie met years ago at school, where Shane was constantly pestering her. While having a secret crush on her.... And Melanie gave back as good as she got.
And now it is ten year later and Melanie has rented a beach house from his step sister. He recognizes her name and decides to go to Florida to check the house as they have to prepare for a hurricane.

Just a good love story with a lot of steam.
