I’m loving this series set in Windswept Bay, Florida. Shar and Gage meet and the chemistry is instant, but Shar thinks she’s not ready for a relationship. Gage has just suffered the loss of his father and needs a break. This book has some surprises in it, so grab your copy and see what happens.
I love that there is love and attraction without casual sex
Life passions and love can coexist

Gage Lancaster has spent his life following in his father's footsteps - working and placing all his attention on the business. However, the sudden death of his father is making him reevaluate what's important in his life. He can't just continue as if nothing has happened. So, he abandons an important meeting and escapes to Windswept Bay where he can relax and figure out what to do next. So, when he sees Shar Sinclair desperately working to save a sea turtle, he begins to realize that there are more important things in the world besides business meetings. He also realizes that he wants to get to know this woman who displays such passion for a worthy cause.
Shar Sinclair wants nothing to do with relationships. She's focused on saving endangered sea turtles and is convinced that a man in her life would pull her away from her life goals. However, why is she so amazed when a stranger rushes up to help her save an injured turtle? And, why does she keep thinking about him? What's wrong with her?
As they get to know each other, Gage is convinced that she's the one for him. Yet, Shar wonders how he can honestly love her? Surely, she's simply a distraction from his grief and a means of escape from the stress of work! Can Gage convince her that his love is real?
I enjoyed this story on many levels. I liked the life lesson that someone can pursue a personal passion such as saving endangered species and also have romantic relationships and love in their life. Not every relationship interferes and it won't if it's truly a loving relationship. Also, Gage is a great leading male character. He's strong and an imposing force in business, yet he's learning that he can step away and have a personal life as well. I really felt the emotions that he must be dealing with after the loss of his father. I also enjoyed the continued back story of Cali and Grant.
All in all, I feel that this story is better than Book 1 and I'm eager for what's next so that I can continue getting to know all these characters - even if they move to the background.
Romance - PG - some kisses
