I know without a doubt, if I need a pick me up, feel good story, I can count on this author to deliver. This book is in my top 5 of her novels for lots of reasons. Firstly, she is a master at writing in the male POV. She can depict a male’s emotions and give us such detail on what makes them tick without making them seem like a douchebag. Secondly, she is a genius with the flirty, dirty banter between her couples, and this book was superb. She also makes her characters feel so genuine that I come away wanting to hang with the gang. The thing I cherish the most about her tales are that she makes her heroes and heroines equal. It is not all about the hero having to please and pleasure the heroine only, there is a perfect balance, and that to me is sexy.
Malone is the crooning vet that has a heart of gold. He is extremely loyal and honorable. He is looking out for everyone, human and animals alike. And only someone with the same mind set could be his life partner. Luckily Sloane is that girl. She is smart and vivacious and only Malone can bring out her inner feline. Except their relationship can’t happen due to Sloane being the daughter of his business partner and mentor. This then brings about a lot of tension and the need for them to escape away to Tahiti for a week. If only it could be forever.
This book is highly recommended for all rom-com lovers and especially Blakely fans. They will treasure how this couple fit into the Big Rock book family and how it also sets up the couple for her next release. I can’t wait to re read this one already, but I’ll add the audio and listen to Malone croon his tunes to me. 😍
