Blurb (from Goodreads):
Sometimes a kiss is so much more...
Single mom Lena Oserkowski just wants to relax at the 5-star resort where her brother is getting married. Oh, and figure out how to make one of her businesses successful enough to support her son. Her focus is thrown out of whack when Elliot Debusshere, twin brother of her new sister-in-law, swims to her rescue at the hotel pool.
Elliot is disillusioned with his wealthy, playboy lifestyle and wants nothing more than to bring some meaning and purpose to the charity he runs. When he rescues Lena from a case of heat exhaustion and meets her son Tyler, he has no idea the answer to his problems might have just fallen in his lap. Literally.
With Lena's ideas and Elliot's know-how, they might just be able to make their ventures a success. Except pleasure has a sneaky way of mixing with their business, leaving both dazed and confused. Charming as he is, Elliot isn't father material. And there's no room for a single mom and her child in his life. While the attraction between them isn't easily squashed, there's no telling the lengths his family will go to prevent a relationship.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was an okay adult contemporary romance, but I lost interest.
I felt sorry for Elliot a bit because his parents treated him like dirt, but I didn’t feel like I could really connect with the characters in this book. Lena actually irritated me though, the way she kept lecturing Elliot on what Tyler was and wasn’t allowed to eat really did my head in. Okay, you can’t let kids live on chocolate, but making him spit out cookies, and lecturing other people is just taking it way too far.
The storyline in this was about the romance between Elliot and Lena, and there were a couple of sex scenes, but I didn’t really like them. I also didn’t like the idea of (highlight to view spoiler - putting an ice cube in a woman’s vagina!)[ (hide spoiler)]
The ending to this was fairly happy, but I just wasn’t the biggest fan of this book.
