Love, life, and happily ever after? It’s all relative.
Marine biology student Emma Pierce lives in paradise—geographically speaking, anyway. Stranded on Sanibel Island, Florida, she works at a nursing home by day and spends her nights dodging the island's infamous bad boy, Jackson Taylor, at her favorite karaoke bar. Trying to heal from the loss of her sister and a failed relationship she rerouted her life for, she's ready to graduate and finally leave Florida behind.
When a run-in with Jackson and his rowdy crew goes sour at the bar one night, sparks fly and irreversible damage is done. It’s no secret that Jackson loves to get underneath her skin, but this time he's gone too far. Now all he wants is to earn her forgiveness before she's gone for good, but their ideas of closure—and the future—are enough to keep them worlds apart.
4.5 out of 5
This book will break your heart and make you fall in love all at the same time. The storyline is beautiful, yet tragic. It will suck you in from the beginning and have you wanting more at the end. I was really impressed with the Author's writing. It had a great flow with just the right amount of details.
The characters were perfect! I loved Jackson and Emma and the relationship they shared. Their love was all consuming and intoxicating! Even when they were mad at each other, there was still a connection. What made the characters so special was that they were both broken in their own way. Jackson lost his mother and Emma lost her sister. Together they coped with their loses and completed one another.
We can't forget the sex scenes. HOLY HOTNESS! Each scene was different and each one was sexy as hell!
The ending is the best ending I have ever read...
I found myself in tears! I love how the Author tied up this story.
It was beautiful and perfect .<3
My only complaint .... I would have liked to read more about Emma's marine biology classes.
