For the last five years, Giselle McCabe’s life has been about sippy cups and playdates. But when her husband suddenly leaves her, Giselle flees to her sister’s California beach house for a two-week getaway. Out of her element, she’s surprised to receive such a warm welcome—especially from gorgeous celebrity athlete Fin Hensen……
Fin is escaping his pro tour for a season, trying to lie low until all the hubbub over a huge mistake in his past blows over. And when he sets his sights on Giselle, he realizes that the beautiful good girl just might be the ticket to his success.
But Giselle never expected romance to enter the picture again—especially with a hot twenty something from a completely different world. And even though it feels like Fin is everything she’s trying to run away from, she can’t help coming back for more.
I recently read this over the 4th of July weekend. I really enjoyed this fabulous read. I loved the story of Giselle and seeing her pick up the pieces of her life after her husband leaves her. That situation is a hard one so she decides to visit and spend some time in California at her sisters beach house. The idea was just to relax and have some “me” time she never expected to fall for anyone. Who know two weeks would be the most amazing ones in her life.
Then enters Fin a celebrity athlete who is trying to recover from some issues of his own. He sees Giselle and thinks her good girl imagine might help his tarnished imagine so he makes it a mission to woo her. Soon the two hit it off and both start to fall for each other when neither one was expecting it. I loved the chemistry between the two, although I must admit I didn’t think I would like Fin but he ended up the opposite of what I thought he was made of. Two completely different characters who end up perfect for one another.
The scenes are breath taking and the romance is perfect, needless to say this is one the best contemporary reads I’ve read so far this year and it’s the perfect read for this hot summer days.
