Well, that was darn cute!
Ian has been struggling to get through day to day life since his twin brother died years before. He and his brother were successful models and seemed to have it all. But once he lost his brother, he lost everything else. His close friends and ex-agent decided to take him on a vacation to Bora Bora in hopes that he'll regain some of that spirit he once had. Well, he regained more than that in meeting the sexy scuba instructor, Temaru.
Whew, these two were so sweet together. Ian and Temaru were great and they had great chemistry, but it moved too fast. Ian went from 'mopey, grumpy pants' to 'happy, all my problems are solved' in a matter of pages. I didn't buy it. I liked how Temaru was 100% supportive of Ian in whatever he needed to get back who he was, I just didn't like how quickly it happened. I didn't get how Temaru helped him through his difficult times when they barely knew each other.
But! They were way cute and smokin' hot together. And the flirting, oh the flirting was fun. There were light touches, snarky comments and sexy innuendos abound. I liked that the flirting continued even as their relationship progressed and it wasn't something they lost. It was who they were as a couple and it was adorable.
If you're in need of a light, fluffy, feel-good romance than this would be perfect!
