About the Author
Maureen Mayer was born, raised and currently resides in Buffalo, NY with her loving and supportive family and boyfriend of 8+ years. She’s always had a love for the outdoors, and when the city isn’t buried under snow, she can be found hiking, fishing, camping or lying on the beach. She’s a sucker for off-color humor, but holds a sweet spot for sick and twisted horror films. When she’s not writing, you can find her curled up in bed with her kindle, diving into a steamy romance novel and falling in love with the latest book boyfriend.

Ok, so Liberty lost her brother from suicide and she is trying to start over in another town while going to college. She runs into Brett on the beach and boy does he want to claim her. Liberty is needing a roomie so she ends up moving in with Brett's younger sister Maddie.
Later in the story, Liberty meets Shayne and sparks fly but Shayne has a past of being the biggest man whore in younger days. His past also collides with someone else that she has become close too and it could ruin their relationship before it even gets started.
No spoilers, just read it and I know you will enjoy it. The first 3 books are out today so go 1 click like crazy!!
Writing needs vast improvement. For example "While I ate, I stared out his kitchen window that faced the beach, and the water was remarkably calm today." That is two sentences that were "edited" to become one horribly written sentence i.e a run-on. It doesn't make sense and it doesn't flow. Try "While I ate, I noticed how remarkably calm the water was." You don't need to reiterate that his kitchen window faces the beach." Also, you don't need to state every snippet of detail that the character is doing and thinking. I can go on and on. But I would rather not.

Minor spoilers....The insta-love thing was ridiculous with Shayne and how her panties got all wet for him at her first run in with him. One of her BFFs, Brett, who became her BFF after like 3 days and she knew she could trust him with anything, was written in as the impending conflict between her and Shayne. He was showing her signs almost immediately that he liked her and regardless of the fact she doesn't return his feelings, she sleeps in the same bed as him for convenience reasons wearing a short t-shirt. She wakes up and freaks out when she finds his hands under her shirt.
As another reviewer said, I'm glad I waited until this book went on sale for $.99 because I don't feel at all guilty for deleting it from my kindle and diving in to one of the many other books on my kindle.
From beginning to end, it captured my heart and attention. I loved the descrptions and amazing writing. The way Mayer pained the picture made it easy to imagine what was going on. I admit, I was upset because I was team Brett-the first guy Liberty met but then Shayne walked in and HOLY HELL!
He's just incredible..Words can't even beging to explain how swoon worthy he is! I love the instant attraction and love between the two characters. She demonstrates their journey so well and you can't help but just sit there and smile as you read their love grow.
As the book continues, your heart breaks for the other guy-Brett. He too loves her but while reading, you understandw why Liberty is with Shayne and not Brett.
The book touches on suicide and it hurt to read that. Mayer portrays the reality so well in the book and she does a great job and handles the topic with such care and respect.
This book is amazing and I recommend it to romance lovers all over..GUESS WHAT! NO CLIFFHANGER!
