"This debut romance sparkles." -- Library Journal on Unbuttoning the CEO
TWO TICKETS TO PARADISE
After some disappointing dates, Karen Ramirez has concluded that great sex is for other people. Especially since medical school won't leave her much time for romance anyway. Then she runs into tall, dark, charming, and ridiculously wealthy Mark Lansing--and quickly reconsiders celibacy. Adding to temptation? Mark will be the best man at her sister's wedding and the nuptial destination is sultry Puerto Rico. Now this trip might just be sensory overload--or the perfect chance for Karen to find the groove she's never had.
For CEO Mark Lansing, his perfect match would be smart, sweet, and funny, with long legs and silky hair the color of dark chocolate. In short, someone a lot like Karen. But Mark's looking to settle down, while a relationship is the last thing on Karen's mind. So Mark proposes a plan: he and Karen will use their weekend in paradise to sizzling advantage--before downshifting to friendship. The only problem? Karen is all Mark can think of when he gets home. Now his most challenging negotiation will be for the one thing money can't buy . . .
Karen meets Mark at a night club celebrating her college graduation. She literally runs into him as she drunkenly stumbles out of the ladies room. Mark was a complete gentleman, making sure she's ok and not left on her own devices only to find out she is the baby sister of his best friends fiancée. Karen and Mark are instantly attracted to each other but neither of them want a relationship. They are forced to spend time with each other at Grace and Ethan's wedding and you can probably guess what happens.
The story was well written and I liked both characters. I like the author's writing style and can't wait to read her other books.
