3 out of 5 Licks
Six days at sea with her ex… Conditions are about to get rough.
Twelve months ago Cassie Dalton fled Sydney and her three year marriage to tough city cop, Reed. Now she’s living a new life chartering tourists around the pristine tropical waters of the Whitsunday Passage on her inherited yacht, The Rendezvous. Despite having unresolved feelings for her estranged husband, she sends divorce papers in her desperation to move on. To her surprise the move shakes Reed out of his emotional hibernation and brings him to north Queensland, determined to win her back. As they spend the next six days sailing and sharing secrets, Cassie begins to wonder why she ever thought living without the man she loves was a solid life plan.
But just as she thinks all their fences have mended, Reed breaks her heart all over again…
An erotic romance short story which can standalone (no cliffhanger)
Most of the books I’ve read start with two people meeting for the first time or friends who have known each other for a while and finally realize they are perfect for each other. It’s not often at all that I read about a couple who has been together and have separated come back together again. Reed acts like a bit of an idiot, but he is a man so I had to expect it. To be fair Cassie spends a lot of time letting Reed be an idiot so it evens out. This is a quick read and I more on the sweet side, but I enjoy a good sweet story. I really enjoy Sami’s books and I’m looking forward to more from her.
