Contemporary Romance, Erotic Romance, Romantic Comedy
The world is waiting for her…and he's waited long enough.
Meg Snow is having hot and wild sex with Cory Traven…in her dreams.
Four years ago he had his chance for a relationship with her. Instead, he joined the military, leaving her to endure Milcott, South Dakota on her own. Now it's her turn for adventure and a chance to banish those erotic Cory fantasies once and for all—on a singles cruise to Jamaica.
Cory has come home for what he'd denied himself four years before. Meg. But she's made it clear she wants anyone except him. There's only one way to show her that what she wants and what she needs are two different things. How? Storm the beaches of Jamaica. Infiltrate his way into her bed. Breach the walls of her heart.
And show her that paradise is not in the Caribbean, but in his arms.
This title contains scorching sex on the beach, in the shower, in bed, and against a wall. A hot hero with a wicked tongue who goes after what he wants and a heroine who gives it to him…again, and again and again.

All he ever wanted was to go home and finally tell his best friend how he felt about her and settle into a blissfully happy life, but all she ever wanted was to literally get out of town.
Six months ago, Cory returned home from the military ready to make a go of it with the one girl that he's ever wanted. That girl is no longer a girl, but a vixen he can't help but be cautious around before he confesses his feelings to her. Meg's his complete opposite and yet she completes him with her spontaneity and family-loving ways. Not to mention physically she's all he has eyes for. Just one problem – Meg wants to leave. It's now or never for Cory to finally make his move, but his romantic attempt get misinterpreted and turns into just another night with his best friend. His failure to launch a relationship with her now has her even more determined to leave, but when things don't go according to her plan, Cory sees it as his chance to romance her on her terms.
Young and restless are two very appropriate descriptions when it comes to Meg. She's done with small-town living and most especially small-town men. All she wants to do is get away from the nosy neighbors and hovering family members and seek out excitement and adventure and possibly find a man who actually knows how to romance a woman. However, Meg also has an ulterior motive for wanting to leave and that includes getting away from her best friend and erotic dream lover, Cory the Culinary Casanova.
Meg's been in love with him forever, but since she believes he doesn't feel the same then she must get away from him before his killer smile and body convinces her otherwise. When an opportunity comes knocking in the form of a singles cruise, Meg can't pack fast enough. She finally gets her chance to explore and maybe be explored with the beautiful Caribbean as the backdrop, but fate has other plans for her impulsiveness and Cory is determined to make her realize that home is where the heart is and she definitely has his.
Sexy, funny and moving, this story has all the elements I look for in a small-town, friends-to-lovers story. Cory and Meg being complete opposites was just icing on this erotically decadent cake. He likes to have a clean home and cook while she can't stand to clean and doesn't know how to cook. From the start, I knew they would be a perfect match and the witty dialogue proves that. The author does a fantastic job of writing their emotional and physical relationship development.
I believed in them as a couple and could totally relate to them as individuals as well. Cory's a one-of-a-kind good guy who would do anything for Meg and while she may want to temporarily get away from the familiar, Meg's love for Cory and her family really knows no bounds. They are compatible with each other and easily relatable to the reader.
I was very impressed with how the author handled the heavy stuff in the story. Nothing came necessarily easy for the couple outside of their obvious chemistry and for once I wasn't entirely sure how the author would manage to wrap this up into a happily-ever-after. That wrap-up might have been a happy one, but unfortunately, it just wasn't as convincing as I would have thought. It seemed to come about a bit too fast and the compromise seemed a little too one-sided. Nevertheless, I am putting this one on my re-read list and would recommend to any reader who enjoys erotic romance. Another solid read by an author who I am definitely a fan of!
