I enjoyed this story of a woman who faces real inner demons and difficulties, and I like Van Meter’s treatment of Justin, who begins as a kind of charming but self-centered jerk, frankly. Watching his reeducation as he comes into contact with the Bells makes for a fun and believable read, and watching Lilah grow in to her own potential made for a novel that is both a fun Harlequin tale and something a little bit more.
Did I say it was sexy? It’s definitely sexy!
Book Info: Publisher: Harlequin Superromance (January 1, 2013)
Lilah Bell isn’t asking for much—just a normal life. A future that’s different from her shadowed, traumatic past. Maybe even a chance to start over. Instead, all she gets is the suffocating attention of her overprotective sisters, who seem to be waiting for her to break again. They don’t get that helping save her family’s beautiful Virgin Islands resort is definitely a challenge she can handle. But what she can’t handle is a serious relationship with carefree visitor Justin Cales. After all, wanting a man who isn’t planning to stick around isn’t smart.
Problem is, falling for Justin is too easy. And now life is more complicated than ever. When the truth unravels, they’ll either be brought together in unexpected ways…or torn apart for good.
