I give this book 5 stars.
This story is about white hot chemistry, supposed betrayal, second chances and love that can conquer all. I recommend this as one of my ‘Must Reads’.
Seven years ago, Tasha is on holiday on the Andros Island in the Bahamas where she meets Diego and the chemistry between them is on the hottest side of hot, so she decides to blow caution to the wind and have a holiday fling with this man. On the day Tasha is supposed to leave for Nassau, Diego asks her to stay another night with him and she says yes. Just has Diego has asked her to stay, he is called away by his boss who wants to extract him from the island because he has heard rumours that someone is out to kill Luc so he sends him on another mission as Diego (aka Luc Bradshaw) is an undercover Drugs Enforcement Agent.
Just after Diego as left the hut that he is sharing with Tasha, the police turn up and find a bag of drugs there and arrest Tasha for possession of this and they throw her in jail for two days. She is unsure what is happening but there is only one answer Diego is a drug dealer and he left her to be charged with the possession of drugs. However, Luc thinks that Tasha has run out on him because his boss told him that when he went to extract her, that she had left.
Present day, Tasha is late again to her friends BBQ because she has had to fire her chef because he had been helping himself to her wine and had been drunk at work and he tried to blame Jeremy the young man that Tasha employed from the ‘Cedar Village’ which is a home for troubled boys that are trying to put their lives back together, and she had to put things right at Bella T’s before she left and that is why she is late, so lets herself into Max’s house and goes out to the back, only to come face to face with the devil himself Diego (aka Luc). Luc is the newly discovered brother of Max and Jake, who are Tasha’s best friends partners. The story then goes on to show how both Tasha and Luc have to learn to trust each other again. Tasha fights her attraction to Luc because she does not believe in love but Luc tries to win her around as he knows that she is the one he wants.
This is a good summer read. Enjoy.
About this author
I grew up in a household with two brothers, a daddy, and my grandfather. Too many men, in other words. They diluted M’ma’s influence by diverting my attention to things like the danger of answering nature’s call in the dead of the night. I’ve got a hint for those of you raised in a less spit-and-scratch world: check before you sit, because chances are that seat is gonna be up. And they don’t even have the grace to be embarrassed about it. According to my sweet baby boy, if you’re the minority sex in the household, you oughtta be putting it up for them. Sigh.
Having brothers was a mixed bag. When anybody messed with me they were always quick with an offer to beat them up. That was sorta nice, although I personally believe it had more to do with the fact that guys just like to fight than with any towering concern for my welfare. You might think that’s cynical but guess who the target was if no one else was around and they were tired of fighting each other? I must’ve spent half my childhood locked in the bathroom, screaming, “Dad’s gonna get you when he gets home.” I know, I know, nobody likes a stoolie. But it was either that or have my block knocked off on a regular basis, and trust me, Daddy was the best deterrent going.
A smart woman probably would’ve gone away to an all-girl school or moved in with some girlfriends at the first opportunity. Me, I got married to my high school sweetie. And the tradition continues. Our only kid (who hasn’t been a kid for quite some time now) is the aforementioned sweet baby boy, and except for an Irish setter we had for eleven years a long time ago, even our pets have all been male. I just try to stay afloat whenever I find myself in the deep end of the testosterone pool, and if you don’t think that isn’t a trial sometimes, I’m here to tell you- it can be hell.
Then again, it can also be heaven. In fact, it mostly is. But listen, don’t tell my guys I ‘fessed up to that, okay? Trust me, it’s difficult enough already, just trying to stay one step ahead of the game.
