Janie McAlister should have known better than to trust her quirky sister’s taste in resorts. Instead of thatched-roof huts and designer pools overlooking the ocean, she’s landed at the one seventies throwback in the Riviera Maya with an open door nudity policy. No way is she going au naturale in public. And she’s sure not entertaining the advances of the bold young man with the delicious body daring her to do exactly that…and so much more.
Well, hello, Ms. McAlister…
Zade Painel’s a man on a mission—grab some much needed R&R at Gypsy Cove, and figure out how to reclaim his boudoir photography business. He never thought the answer would come in the form of a curvy, forty-year-old redhead and an accidental knee to the ‘nads, but Janie proves to be a force of nature with a penchant for fixing things. She’s also sexy as hell. One way or another, he’s going to help her see just that. And if he plays his cards right, it'll be a heavenly hands-on approach that lasts way past seven days in paradise.
My Thoughts - Story
This book had it ALL…humor, romance, angst and the biggest plus was the fact that our heroine was in her 40’s. Definitely, a book I could relate to.
The romance was cute and especially since Zade was a much younger guy who appreciated a person for what was on the inside instead of age.
So with that said, Ms. Morgan did an excellent job at expressing the characters and each of the scenes ---- she pinpointed emotions ranging from humor to sadness and developed a perfect love story.
Janie goes on a vacation that her sister gifted her, but it turns out that it is to a resort that clothing is optional and reminds Janie more of Gilligan’s Island than a plush getaway.
She meets Zade accidentally (and a bit clumsily) and the sparks fly. Janie tries to fight it since he is younger but Zade won’t take no for an answer.
From here, it is a game of cat-n-mouse until more than just lust and sex is between them.
