After going out of his way to rescue her, the former London financier turned mysterious recluse makes it clear that despite acting as her white knight, he has no plans to co-star in her fairytale.
But Georgie isn’t asking for his heart—she’s merely intrigued.
After all, Gianluca isn’t just gorgeous—tall and tan from days spent in the sun—his touch sets her world on fire. With him, Georgie experiences the most intoxicating passion she’s ever known, and it only takes a few steamy nights for her to realize that sometimes running away from trouble is the best way to find it.

First off, I love R.S.Grey books, she one of my favorite authors. This was a full length standalone that I truly enjoyed. It starts off slow but picks up pretty fast and is a mix of humor, tears and swoon worthy moments. I love the characters especially Georgie who is such a spitfire women with spunk that makes me laugh.  Georgie and Luca have a chemistry that is hot as the sun, it scorching  hot! Its a romantic comedy type book that you will fall in love with like I did. Can you imagine meeting the man that his innocent touch turns you on so much it feels like a fire that only he can put out?

It was a great read that I’d recommend to anyone who loves a romantic love story. There journey isn’t smooth sailing and there no telling if they can move to that place in the sun or if it will be a thrilling time she’ll look back on with lovey memories of the man who set her on fire.  Read to find out if Georgie gets a place forever in the sun or if it’s short stop on her journey!

I am a lover of books, chocolate, reality TV, black labs, and cold weather. Seriously, if I had it my way I would be curled up on the couch with all of those things… everyday.

I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors are Mindy Kaling & Jonathan Safran Foer. I’m a comedy geek and love all things “funny”. Women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling are definitely the biggest inspirations for my writing, though I think my work tends to skew a bit smuttier than theirs.
