Prepare to be swept away by a talented debut author with a passionate, powerful story to tell.

They meet on a beach. . . . Abby Davis isn’t wearing a skimpy bikini or sipping umbrella drinks, not when she’s busy chasing around four little ones. And Matt McKinney isn’t looking for fun—he’s a Navy SEAL, a grown man with a long list of missions . . . and fallen brothers.

They only have a week. . . . Abby has brought her children to this beach to start over, to give them the enjoyable memories they deserve. Matt’s been sidelined by a combat injury, and haunted by the best friend he lost and the promise he made: to remain a SEAL—focused and dedicated. This leaves no time for what he’s always wanted: a family.

But a week is all it takes. . . . Matt opens her heart while Abby soothes his soul. And though they plan to say good-bye when the week is over, something magical happens on that beach, something neither can forget. Something utterly, completely worth falling for.

My Review

I am completely, head over heels in love with this book! Matt and Abby stole my heart. This story brought out so many emotions in me and I may or may not have ugly cried...more than once. Their journey was absolutely heart wrenching for me, though the couples' banter made it hilarious at the same time.

Matt and Abby definitely aren't on their vacations to find love. Matt is a Navy SEAL, recovering from some painful wounds and Abby is strong, determined woman adjusting to life as a single mother of four. When Matt takes a liking to one of her sons and starts tagging along with her and the kids to the beach, Abby quickly realizes that she can't hide her attraction to the man. And he definitely isn't hiding his interest in spending time with both her and her children.

* Jack ran up beside him. "We're swim buddies. Right, Matt? Matt says you should always swim with a buddy."
Matt's raised eyebrows and the smirk he was fighting told her she'd been busted for gawking. "Do you want to come out? The water's great."
Um, no. No, thanks. I'm not a strong swimmer. I mean I can swim, I just---"
"I'll be your swim buddy." He grinned and she caught a hint of dimples. Oh, Lord.

But when it's time to get back to their lives away from the beach, they must both decide if their feelings for each other are worth the sacrifices needed in order to pursue their relationship.

 This story is sweet, sexy and so wonderfully written that I honestly could not put it down! I can't wait for the next in the series.
