But what happens? Here comes this man who steals her charter (they end up sharing). Tess believes that everything happens for a reason. She was meant to meet Tom. He took some convincing. Not everyone gets to meet a movie star and fall in love with him.
What an adventure Tom and Tess are taking. One neither of them expected to take. So when you see that title -- it is what it is. No more wasted time or moments.
I know this is a story, a fantasy, but it is a delightful one. You will laugh and cry and you will love it and wish just a little bit that the next time you look up, you would look into the eyes of your "soulmate". It is one of those stories that leaves you feeling good.
Read that book... You won't be sorry.
Beverly --- thank you for this story...
*******spoiler alert******* The thing that I liked least about this story was the only real crisis in the book, when Tom's picture with another woman is in a magazine and Tess flips out completely. Despite all the talk about trust, Tess doesn't even give him a chance to explain but has what amounts to a temper tantrum and destroys her phone. Instead of being angry at Tess' lack of trust, Tom begs for her forgiveness even though he's done nothing wrong. I lost a lot of respect for both of them and that carried over to the rest o the book. ******* end spoiler *******
I liked the way Tom integrated himself with Tess' children and I thought the scenes at the cabin for Thanksgiving and Christmas were very heartwarming. The imagery in this book was exceptionally fine, with vivid and graphic descriptions. The dialogue was authentic which meant that there was quite a lot of profanity. The writing style was smooth and easy to read. The editing could have used more proofreading (e.g., the past tense of "drag" is "dragged," not "drug") but the mistakes did not interrupt the flow of the story.
Overall, I enjoyed reading this story and I would probably recommend it with qualifications.
After spending nearly a year in mourning following the untimely death of her husband Tess decides it's time to truly put Richard to rest and takes his ashes to their favorite vacation spot, Bora Bora, to scatter them in the waters there. While setting up a charter boat to take her out to the place she wants to leave Richard she is spotted by Hollywood heartthrob Tom Clemmins who is vacationing with his 'date' at the same resort. Tom is immediately smitten with Tess, sends his 'date' packing, and hijacks Tess's charter so that he can meet her. So begins their story. There is guilt on Tess's part, having been married and faithful to Richard for 25 years, and fear of commitment on Tom's part. There is separation that brings them closer together, and the struggle that Tom must go through getting to know and winning over Tess's 3 grown children, all while dealing with the knowledge that he can never have children of his own.
The characters in this book all had depth and character and were very interesting, each in their own way. The plot line was strong and I found myself not wanting to put the book down. The authors descriptions of Bora Bora and other locations in the story make we want to not waste any more time and go there to see them for myself.
I look forward to reading many more novels by Beverly Preston.
First of all... I can't find a single thing about this book that I didn't like. It was hot, steamy and romantic. Perfectly written and so easy to read. No headache involved. I couldn't put it down.
I'm almost 30 (I wish I was 29 for the rest of my life) and it was a first for me to read about an older couple. Guess what? It was great! The characters are more mature and they bring so much more to the story. It felt real and believable.
I think we all need a Tom in our life.. *daydreaming* Right? And we most definitely need to go to Bora Bora... Seriously?!?! WOW! I could see the pictures in my mind while I was reading the book.
I recommend it to all of you romance readers!!!!
Im looking forward to Beverly's next book. She is an amazing and talented author :)
