When rescue looks like a whole lot of trouble . . .

The road trip was definitely a bad idea. Having already flambéed her culinary career beyond recognition, Rita Clarkson is now stranded in God-Knows-Where, New Mexico, with a busted-ass car and her three temperamental siblings, who she hasn’t seen in years. When rescue shows up—six-feet-plus of hot, charming sex on a motorcycle—Rita’s pretty certain she’s gone from the frying pan right into the fire . . .

Jasper Ellis has a bad boy reputation in this town, and he loathes it. The moment he sees Rita, though, Jasper knows he’s about to be sorely tempted. There’s something real between them. Something raw. And Jasper has only a few days to show Rita that he isn’t just for tonight—he’s forever.




(Received ARC from Netgalley in exchange for our honest review.)

Steph Anderson wants to retrieve what was taken from her mom from the stepdad. A man Steph used to feel like her dad. Steph went to the Cayman Islands where her stepdad has a club.

Jake Harlowe was hired to find misappropriated funds. Jake went to the Cayman Islands. Step hand Jake were after the same man. They decided to work together to get the information. A lot of mistrust between the couple. A lot of chemistry between the couple.

This was a fun story to read. I enjoyed the banter between the couple. I can’t wait to read the next installment.
