Caribbean Crush (Under the Carribbean Sun #3) by Jenna Bayley-Burke, twenty-somethings Kristin Taylor and Antonnis Prinsen spent four passionate summers on the island of Anguilla falling in love. They learned about each other and experienced the best sex of their young adult lives. At the end of their fourth summer crushtogether, Antonnis returned to Holland and never looked back. He thought a clean break would leave their memories happily intact, boy was he wrong.

Years later, Antonnis is back on the island to attend his brother’s wedding. Kristin is in the wedding party as well, so it is only a matter of time before they see each other once again. The sparks are still there, however, Kristin is still riddled with anger and hurt.

Along with the signature wedding cocktail, Caribbean Crush, Antonnis is able to break down some of Kristen’s barriers and they end up spending all of their free time together, never leaving the luxurious hotel. This time Kristen is the one that makes a clean break and leaves Antonnis lusting and bereft. Luckily, Antonnis comes to his senses and sweeps Kristen off her feet.

This is a hot, sexy novella. I liked the storyline, characters and quick pace. Unfortunately, some of the names were difficult to pronounce, so I just skimmed over them. If you are looking for a nice second chance romance, give this a read. This book can be read as a standalone.

“Under the Caribbean Sun, Book 3”

The second Antonnis Prinsen sees his old flame, he knows she’s the lifeline to keep him from drowning in his brother’s matrimonial mayhem. It’s been years since they’ve talked, but surely by now she understands that a clean break was best. Instead of making a smooth re-introduction into her life, he finds his path blocked by a giant iguana. And Kristin looking at him as if he’s lower than the reptile.

Kristin Taylor spent her youth tangled up in Antonnis, but then he cut ties and disappeared. Now she leads a full and orderly life-until she finds herself walking down the aisle beside him. Thank goodness, it’s only to see his brother and her friend tie the knot.

Except Antonnis seems intent on picking up where they left off, and she has to admit she still has a weakness for him. Especially when he tempts her with an irresistible offer-one hot night, and this time she gets the chance to leave him cold.

Warning: Beware of signature cocktails and old flames rekindled. Either one will weaken your resolve-and your knees-before you know what’s hit you.
