After the father of her child ditched her and their son, she bypassed college, shelved her plans to see the world, and went straight to managing the family café in Bar Harbor, Maine.

But when her brother invites her to the grand opening of his new hotel in Vienna, she decides it's finally time to experience a little of the adventure she still secretly longs for. She isn’t planning on doing anything crazy, of course. Especially not something as wild and reckless as ending up in bed with one of the sexiest music superstars in the world....

Loved, loved this book! I’m not sure why I loved Ashley and Nash’s story the most (at least, so far), but I really did. They clicked from the moment they met with no expectations from each other. I have read all of the Sullivan’s books and this one ranks up to being one of the best. If you love this family, there should be no hesitation in reading this book.
