That moment you catch your boyfriend in bed with another woman and then mistakenly get arrested. #awks
Annie doesn't want to dwell on the fact that she walked in on her bf wearing nipple clamps on the day he was meant to propose to her. She just wants to move on - cue escaping to a tropical paradise.
Life is dreamy on the beaches of Mauritius, until the nightmarish appearance of her ex and the 'other woman'. Faced with the enemy, Annie refuses to look like the sad, lonely single she actually is. She needs a decoy - and fast. Enter Chris, a sexy screenwriter who agrees to play her pretend boyfriend.
But as a battle of the exes commences, the white sand, tropical heat and a pina colada (or five) might just be the cocktail for a real romance - and the adventure of a lifetime.

Watson continues her Destination Love contemporary series (Burning Moon) with this middling story set on the beaches of Mauritius, where heartbroken Annie Anderson tries to have some fun while making sense of her shattered life. When her boyfriend cheated, she lost not only her dream of becoming his wife but also her job, her home, and her self-esteem. When her friends are delayed from joining her on their group vacation, Annie finds herself alone of the beach, where she meets screenwriter Gemini "Chris" Christophersen. He doesn't believe in love, though it's all he writes about. Since neither is interested in a relationship, they embark on fully open conversations, feeling they have nothing to lose. Annie is drawn to Chris's sense of humor and he finds pleasure in her straightforwardness. When they run into Annie's ex and his new flame, Chris steps in and pretends to be Annie's boyfriend. There are some laugh-out-loud moments, but the ages of the characters are out of sync with their juvenile antics, and readers will find the ultimate prank hard to swallow. The opening is cleverly creative, but the story doesn't hold up to the hype.
I truly enjoyed this book. I enjoyed the characters and the story was interesting and funny. I appreciated the fact that the ridiculousness of some parts were acknowledged, which made the book make sense, I suppose. The two main characters are different but complement each other. You can see why they like each other- they make sense. I’ll be buying the next book.
I love Jo Watson’s ability to make me laugh out aloud! Another great light hearted read!
