“My dearest grand-daughter, Listen to your heart, believe in a brighter tomorrow, and always, always leave room for dessert.”

Noelle Olsen has never been impulsive, but when she inherits the old family bed and breakfast, she surprises everyone by quitting her corporate job and starting over in Beachwood Bay: the sleepy coastal town that’s home to old memories, new friends — and the one man she never saw coming.

Ash Callahan isn’t looking for love. He’s built his real-estate empire out of discipline, control, and cool logic — so why does one kiss from a carefree stranger send his world tilting off its axis?

Their connection is undeniable; the chemistry, impossible to ignore. But just as Noelle considers opening her heart again, the pair find themselves facing off over the town’s future — and their own. With so much as stake, will they find a way to bridge the divide, and build a love that’s unforgettable?

Review

I’ve really enjoyed reading books in this series, each focusing on a different couple but all equally as brilliant! In this book we finally get to read about the elusive Ash Callahan.

Ash has just landed the deal of his career and instead of going out to celebrate he’s off to a charity fundraiser. As he’s about to go inside he spots a young woman with her heel stuck in the road. When he rushes to her aid he’s struck by her innocent beauty, maybe his night won’t be so boring after all…

Noelle Olsen is fed up of her parents trying to set her up with boring or just plain obnoxious men. Now about to face yet another blind date she’s caught off guard by the handsome stranger who saves her outside. When she goes inside and is met by yet another arrogant idiot she makes her escape in the hopes of meeting Ash again.

A kiss, a dance and a walk into the night a later they agree to a night with no rules, no restraints, only each other. But when they part ways will they be able to forget their night together?

When tragedy strikes Noelle she starts to rethink her choices. Living the corporate life has never felt right to her so when she has the chance to give up everything and move to Beachwood Bay she decides to be impulsive for once in her life and takes the leap. Leaving her family and friends behind she moves to her Grandma’s B&B to start again, but she wasn’t expecting to bump into Ash.

Ash has been independent and in control his whole life. After his explosive night with Noelle he’s been indecisive about calling her, but the last thing he expected was to find her with his family. Now faced with a summer in her company he must decide whether to continue his corporate, lonely life or to take a risk to be happy with her. But just as things were starting to go well, Ash’s business comes between them again. He must make a choice – his corporate life or her?

Absolutely loved this book! I loved Noelle’s spirit and her determination to make a new life. The twists and turns she faces with Ash made for a great read and their chemistry was HOT! I especially loved the epilogue with all the other couples from the series. A must read!

Excerpt

 

“Watch out!”

The packed crowd in Jimmy’s bar suddenly shifts, and I go slamming into someone. 

“Sorry!” I put my hands out to keep from falling, and a pair of strong arms grip me tightly, keeping me on my feet. “I didn’t see you—”

I look up, and the words fade on my lips. The room disappears—all the noise and jostling crowd blurring into background static.

It’s him.

Ash. The man from the masquerade party. The one who led me on a wild night of adventure—and never called me the next morning. He should be five hundred miles away, but he’s here, in the middle of the crowded bar in Beachwood Bay, looking at me like I’m a ghost.

I know how he feels. It’s impossible, it has to be. But I can feel his hands, gripping me tightly; feel the warm, solid muscle of his body against mine.

I know those hands. I’ve explored that body. There would be no mistaking them, even if I wasn’t gazing into his piercing dark eyes, the ones branded on my memory.

Oh my God.

The moment stretches, electric. Then someone slams into me again, and Ash yanks me back. Suddenly, the world rushes in again.

“What are you…?” I whisper, still not able to believe it. “I mean…”

I fight to collect myself, but before I can form a coherent sentence, Ash grabs my hand and pulls me across the room. He’s moving so fast, I can barely keep up: I hurry after him, through the crowd and down a back hallway. 

“Where are we going?” I gulp, my heart racing. “Slow down. Ash!”

He ignores me, pulling me after him, up a flight of stairs, and through another door. We emerge on the rooftop, a flat expanse decorated with string lights and a view of the whole bay. I barely have time to catch my breath before Ash brings his hands to my face, pushes me back against the wall and kisses me so hard I forget my own name.

Yes.

Just like before, the chemical reaction is instant: a flare of heat surging through me, so bright it blots the world, like staring straight into the sun. I part my lips, greedy for the taste of him, loving the sensual caress of his tongue as he slides it deep into my mouth.

Ash groans against me, and I arch up, wrapping my arms around his neck to pull him closer. He’s gripping me so tightly, my body is crushed against him; my back hard against the wall. He threads the fingers on one hand roughly through my hair, pinning me in place as his mouth continues its devastating exploration.

There’s no way to explain it, how my body responds to his touch. Touch-paper to a flame; igniting like never before. I run my hands through his dark hair, slide across the muscular contours of his back, gripping at his shirt and kissing him with everything I have. I can’t think, I can’t breathe, I just fall deeper into the kiss, our passion obliterating every last thought from my mind.

It’s a rush of glitter in my veins, of soaring fever and a low, aching need. Desire consumes me, hot and demanding, until suddenly, Ash wrenches free.

I gasp for air, sinking back against the wall. My legs go weak as his eyes rake over me, blazing darkly with lust. “What are you doing here?” he whispers harshly.

“I…” I can’t find the words, I’m still reeling with shock—and desire.

A shadow crosses his face. He shakes his head, looking dazed. “No,” he mutters, cutting me off. “This isn’t happening.” Before I can say another word, he turns and strides away from me, slamming the exit door with a crash. I’m left alone on the rooftop with nothing but the sound of my own beating heart.
