He’s determined to leave his past behind. She’s committed to a new and better future. But a guarded heart and an inability to trust may be too much to overcome, even in paradise.
Cass Cutler's life is full—of nothing. So when she gets the news that she's inherited her father's yacht, there's no reason not to head to paradise for a new start on the picture perfect beaches and the crystal clear waters of Panama for a fresh start. Learning how to sail and operate a boat is just the challenge she needs.
When Archer Wolfe arrived in Panama he was looking for a change of scenery and maybe a bit of adventure, he was definitely not looking for a relationship. But a feisty little blond in a tight tank top fiercely determined to prove she can handle the big boat she somehow inherited, could change all of that. If only he can convince her to give in to their desire.
Despite their attraction, the last thing Cass wants or needs, is another man in her life who’s just going to leave. Archer is nothing more than fantasy, and he needs to stay that way if she hopes to save her inheritance—and her heart—before she loses everything.
Thoroughly enjoyable read!
Appreciated the well-developed characters, and the mystery included in the story.
Awesome new series!
Cass is in an unfulfilling job and even more unfulfilling relationship when she gets the news that her father is presumed dead and, as his next of kin, has to do something about his boat in Panama. It's been a long time since Cass has seen her father but she needs a break from her life so she goes. Cass is ready to focus on paying off her father's debts and isn't looking for attachments. Archer has been in Panama since his friends bought him a trip for his birthday. He plans to see the world and isn't looking for attachments. The chemistry these two have from the second they met help them work together to get a business rolling.
I loved Archer; he's charming and funny. I haven't read the Spring Series that he was introduced in but this book quickly moved the series to the top of my TBR. Cass is so strong. She takes all of the news of her father and the speed bumps put in her path in stride. Between the beautiful location and the chemistry between Cass and Archer, I couldn't put this story down. I can't wait for Book 2 in the series!!
