“sometimes the universe wants a laugh at your expense, and the best medicine is simply laughing harder…”

I came on vacation to reclaim my independence, not to end up with another man.
Apparently the universe had other plans when it put an ex-Navy SEAL l in the condo next door.
The moment Riker walks up, I sense something familiar about him.
Is it because he reminds me of the men I’ve walked away from?
Or is it because I see something of myself?
Even when I try to avoid him, our paths continue to cross, but at the end of the week, we’ll be separated by hundreds of miles.

I love when stories don’t drag and still gives us the sexiness and story to suck us in. That’s what we get here. Libby gets more than she expected after a breakup. The chemistry is there with Rider and I loved seeing them fall for each other when they weren’t expecting it.

“SUPER CUTE! I loved watching Libby & Riker try to handle their unexpected chemistry when they just want to escape the world for a little bit. These two had me glued to my chair until I got to the end. I loved every minute!!”

“I loved Riker and Libby from the start. This was a quick read, short and sweet.”
