She's a sparkly Hollywood actress out of her element in the rainy Pacific Northwest. He's the sexy, grumpy hotel owner she turns to for help when the paparazzi threaten to take away everything she's got.
Actress Domino West's life is picture perfect. Until it isn't. Dumped by text—during one of the most important meetings of her career—she volunteers to self-exile on a tiny, rain-soaked island in the middle of nowhere. Her mission? Find the perfect location to shoot her next movie—and escape the relentless gaze of the paparazzi.
Grumpy, sexy, exasperating Forest Russo is determined to fix up the Driftwood Inn, and he's hell-bent on doing it on his own. But with tourist season only months away, he and his sister, Fern, are up against the clock—and the wet, gray winter in the Pacific Northwest. The last thing he needs is a beautiful, high-maintenance movie star and the pack of paparazzi following her to get in his way.
Forest is as gruff as Domino is sweet, but it's soon clear they're not as polar opposite as they seem, and the attraction sizzling between them becomes impossible to ignore. Sparks fly, passions flare, and Domino begins to realize this charming little island—and its inhabitants—are imprinted on her soul.
With Domino's producing partners breathing down her neck, she's got to work fast—not just to save her career but because the longer she stays, the more she doesn't want to leave. For the first time in her life, she feels like she's home. But time's running short, and they're gambling with their dreams. Will winning everything bring them together? Or will it tear them apart?

Grumpy meets sunshine
I found myself smiling and chuckling at the grumpy character. The small town - island community was absolutely charming and an essential character in the story. Thoroughly enjoyable and interesting romance.
Good book, but slow start
I enjoyed the book, but found it really hard to get pulled into it. Once I finally felt connected to the characters I enjoyed reading it more! Overall, it is good!
