Nothing rekindles love like a little blackmail.
Socialite Alexandria Carmichael is back in her childhood town. As the oldest daughter of the now-disgraced Carmichael clan, she is used to leaning on her parents' fortune until it isn't there anymore. She returns to the bay and all the issues there she tried to escape after she can't keep her dream of owning and operating an art gallery alive. Armed with nothing but the last of her savings and depression-fueled desperation, she ends up confronted by her siblings, roped into a renovation she has no interest in being a part of, and face to face with a fiancé she never wanted to see again.
Cassian Winchester is nothing more than a figurehead in his father's advertising company. After a few nosy parties alert him to his ex-fiancée's return, he sets out to see Alexia again, and perhaps try to convince her of everything they'd done wrong the first time. He discovers some secrets are better left in the dark, and his family's name and reputation will not buy him the one thing he wants. Her love. Still, he's determined to try, and willing to do whatever is necessary—including blackmail—to regain her heart.
The past is done, and the future is still unwritten. Can the lies of their families be healed with love, or is this one engagement that cannot be revived?

ARC for honest review with no compensation
Boardwalk Bliss is book 4 in the Carmichaels of Cinnamon Bay series by Brea Viragh and up next is Alexandria Carmichael and Cassian Winchester. This is a standalone but the underlying story is showing how the Carmichaels go from riches to rags and maybe building back to riches by the time we get to all the books in this series!
This couple were once engaged until Alexandria left Cinnamon Bay supposedly for good but when her dreams of owning an art gallery fall down around her she returns home with very little. When Cassian hears she is back in town he wants to connect again in the hopes they can right the wrongs that tore them apart...will working for the Spice Factory and the possibility of her finding her niche back home...bring them together or prove once and for all that they don’t belong together???
