A blissful week on the beautiful island of Maui is exactly what I need… I haven’t got away in years. Not since the tragedy that’s overshadowed my life. Not since my heart cracked into two. But when I finally take the plunge, what happens? I get locked out of my hotel room.
The first person I lay eyes on is a golden-eyed guy who’s all kinds of rugged. Rugged in a dirty-sex kind of way. The best kind. Chocolate-brown hair, sun-kissed skin, a sexy dimpled smile. A built body that I want to run my hands all over. And that takes me by surprise. He’s the first man that’s caught my eye in a long, long time. I’ve never been able to get past the pain that haunts me. But this man makes me think I might be able to forget.
Four cocktails later, our chemistry is hotter than the Hawaiian sun. We’re pressed against each other in an elevator. Soaking wet after being caught in a tropical storm. I’m moaning in his arms, hands fisting his hair. Then we spend the rest of our vacation unwinding and undressing…
We have just two rules: No talking about our lives back home, and this is just a fling. That means I can’t tell him about the heartbreak I fight every single day. I can’t reveal my secret. But when the sun sets on our trip, can we bring ourselves to say goodbye? I have a feeling he’ll be tempted to break the rules. The question is, after years of shielding my heart, will I be able to let him in? And even if I do, will I want him when I find out who he really is?
