I have enjoyed Lexi Blake books before so and I was excited for this new read.
Henry is the”monster of Manhattan”, the shark of a lawyer who is recovering from being a alcoholic. He went through a public divorce and all he wants is to get away to his hometown. He catches Win, a reality show star who is trying to recover from her demons, literally while she was running on the beach and from that first meeting I could tell I would love this couple.
Two hurt souls trying to heal each while not harboring secrets from each other plus an electrical storm and you get two weeks of magic and bliss that they both needed so desperately. But now, the vacation is over and it’s back to the real world with the agreement to go their separate ways but the universe has other plans for them. Forced together again when Win is accused of murder the sparks pick right back up where they thought they left them as Henry tries to keep it professional between them and clear her name, all of that along with a twist that you don’t see coming this book was a winner!
I Loved it, this was another hit Lexi!!!
