Settling in to her new cozy cottage, I gotta say, I was for just that moment envious of Alicia's new life. It is exactly what she needs to begin this new chapter. That is until she meets Hunter. Clad only in boxers when she first lays eye's on him, she is about to discover that just when you think you have control of your path in life, it suddenly veer's of the road like a run away train. Hunter, the Adonis, is quite the beauty to be hold. He is confident, stunning and wants to know more about his new neighbor. Still feeling the sting from her previous life, Alicia proceeds with caution. Never mind the crazy mixed up dizzying emotions he brings out her, there is no way Alicia is going to get caught up in some 1 night stand with someone she barely knows.. okay maybe that wouldn't be *so* bad with Hunter. Alicia is determine to get settled and grounded in her new life. Hunter is relentless and can't shake how Alicia makes him feel from the moment he almost bumped into her half naked at his house. Working his way thought is own past tragedies, Hunter lives on the theory that men and women can simply have platonic friendships - no strings attached. Why bring emotions into all this? Emotions only get people hurt. Together, Alicia and Hunter must navigate this new friendship, these new feelings, both cautiously trying to avoid more heartache and pain. No longer denying the electricity that explodes around them, they must figure if it is possible to have a second chance in life.
“Maybe it’s not what you’re running from, but what you’re running toward.”
I loved this fun, steamy little love story. When i finished, I thought, "Oh, that was fun...". I was surprised the feeling I had the whole book that something was lurking around the corner, some devastation that would leave me gutted, ragged and raw never happened. I was surprised it ended how it did when it did, without me wanting to scream at the author for ripping my heart out. Don't get me wrong. The ending was lovely, my heart was bursting, and it was perfect. It wasn't until the next day that I realized that was the brilliance of Theresa Troutman. The whole book Alicia is expecting the other shoe to drop. She is cautious, and scared and tentative and that is what I was feeling the whole time. What you get from this book is the genuine feeling of the characters that are written in the story. This is the perfect, curl up real cozy at the cabin, on the beach, I just need to get away book. It was funny, gritty, steamy, *HOT* and has a great love story. These down under boys that call their girls "Love" had my toes curling. Kudo's Theresa - you got me there. You had me at Adonis man.
Who loves a nice HEA?!
Sometimes..you just want to read a good short story that is nothing but a happily ever after..because sometimes people just deserve it.
Alicia surely did...and Hunter did too. Good thing Theresa Troutman * took a try at writing a little erotica, it was hot & sweet!
"I let out a languid sigh as I admired my Adonis. Who needed an Italian marble sculpture when I had a living breathing Kiwi standing in my bedroom?"
I want to visit New Zealand now <3
"It's what I imagined true love must be like, the give and take in a relationship where both parties want what's best for the other."
I would def recommend.
A nice read if you want the perfect relationship as unbelievable as it might be, but I found it a bit too sweet.
I loved the NZ setting, though.
