At sunny Maverick Bay Tamara's out of her comfort zone--the third floor corner of the library where she spends her days and nights reading. But when Ronni begs her to waitress at her brother's restaurant on the beach, Tam just can't say no. Besides, she's got a suitcase full of fiction to keep her busy. That is, until delish Xavier sweeps across her coastline.
In champion romantic hero form, Xavier plans little interludes for Tamara to experience--with him--all in the name of turning her head. Does it work?
Comme ci, comme ca.
As with all plans, there are small and large snafu's--none-the-least of which is the appearance of Zander, Xavier's hard-partying step-brother, who is by turns a cad and a competitor. His constant challenges cause Xavier to enter the surfing competition if only to take Zander out. Meanwhile, Tamara gets caught in the undertow between Xav, Zander and Ronni, and Xavier's big romancing ends up as a near wipe out.
The dual viewpoint (which I adore) gives a clear window to the hopes and fears of these two romantic souls. It's a fun romp with great repartee. I loved watching Tamara break free of her shell, and Xavier is such a gentle love interest. *swoon*
For a New Adult title, the tone is light and the pace is right. It's got some spice as well. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes a good romance.
Tamara Winters, a complete book nerd, is coerced into going to Maverick Bay to help her BFF, Ronni waitress at Ronni’s brother’s restaurant for spring break, which coincides with Maverick's Surf Invitational. There she meets Xavier Solomon, the Invitational's organizer and her secret admirer. He’s been trying to get her attention for weeks, and set up this trip as a way to talk to her.
I liked the idea of a girl with her nose in her books missing out on what life has to offer her, including the attentions of really hot boy. Add to that, the heroine isn’t a twig, but her insecurities are normal no matter what size you are. Xavier, the hero, is adorable in his infatuation with Tamara and his struggle to deal with all the glitches in his plan to woo her. I liked their friends, and Ronni and Xavier’s brother seems destined to have their own book.
My main complaint is that I didn’t actually like the heroine all that much. She was kind of abrasive in her desire to hide, and there were instances where I had a hard time understanding why the hero likes her in the first place. The story ends fairly abruptly and it left me generally unsatisfied.
The Bottom Line
I can’t quite recommend this book, though it has some interesting things going for it. I genuinely wished I liked the heroine more, but I couldn’t.
